[Engadget] Warner Bros. paid YouTubers for positive game reviews. - Page 2

post #11 of 71
Less than honest promotion of a PC video game? What kind of world am I now living in? Well, at least I can count on the hardware manufacturer's never stooping to this level of depravity.

Some of those youtubers are no longer revising games and their channels died because of that scandal.
Smart guys.

AngryJoe and WorthABuy seems to be honest and close to my taste.

Pewdiepie is a joke for sure. But he is the king of them all I guess lol...


WorthABuy? I've only ever seen his witcher 3 video, didn't seem like too bright of a guy.

I think he is OK. Like his opinions on some games. Cant remember how his Witcher 3 review was though.

Ehh wasnt this revealed a while ago i think totalbiscuit was the one who brought this garbage to light.

Or is Engadget digging up old dirt to bring down the competition?

The German YouTuber "Gronkh" is by far my Favourite. He does sponsored Giveaways from Time to Time but is always overtransparent with "Sponsored by XYZ" Banners all over the Place. And he also tells his Audience when he gets invites to Devs, Events or Sponsorships for Boths on Events.

Sadly many other YouTubers and Twitch Streamer that i watch a) pic the worst Partners and b) sell them like they're the best on the Globe.

I suppose that's cheaper than actually making a good game.

I believe it's illegal to not disclose that it is a paid advertisement review.

It's because of the [S] in the quote "promote[s] positive sentiment about"

You can either change the square brackets to parenthesis or curly brackets, or put a noparse flag either side of it like I have above:
Code:
"promote[noparse][s][/noparse] positive sentiment about"

None. I trust my own judgement and don't need some clown to tell me how good a game is.

(I use alternate means to 'demo' because, as this article proves, no one can be trusted)

Lol, I came here to say this.

It probably had something to do with Batman being completely broken on pc.
