[bloomberg] Virtual Weapons Are Turning Teen Gamers Into Serious Gamblers - Page 2

post #11 of 47
I don't see this as a huge problem.

Real life is gambling..

Sure, you don't want the kids to create a bad addiction so early in life..


But to Understand that all of these choices are trade offs of time-wealth, isn't so unrealistic a thing to be teaching. rolleyes.gif

This is a youtube channel that makes its hits of reaction videos. 98% of their channel is nothing but reaction videos and remixes of other videos, its nothing but a parody channel.

Pearl clutching and click bait at its finest.


Edit: how does one even find a channel like this.

They were recently in the news because they were getting sued because of one of their videos.

They also got donations to fight the legal trouble from some of the biggest streamers.

It's mainly supposed to be satire and the channel is somewhat popular.

What's that got to do with actual content within the video? A YT channel that primarily focuses on one thing isn't allowed to focus on something else?

Also, if you think that channel does reaction videos, you clearly haven't watched any of their videos.

I never said make it illegal or shut it down. I simply implied that its a fud channel and that it has nothing but immature click bait nonsense.

No reaction videos huh?: http://archive.is/F1MQQ. 67 of their 128 videos are reaction videos.

None of those sites aret refutable gaming news sites, they all just parrot the same rubbish (as your post points out) to appeal to the grade school demographic. They're all just a bunch of click baity attention seekers that will grab whatever headline that they think might get them source quoted by an actual main stream world news publication/site.
