"Some of the reviewers didn't even say that their videos were sponsored, only that they received a free copy of the game."

I.E. Sponsored.

Totalbiscuit and his friends I trust. I also know Nerdcubed is ethical to a fault. recently unsubbed from pewds for this. He's sketch either way with the G2A sponsorship. Jim Sterling is also quite reliable, but he's preachy sometimes.

Do we really need yet another review of an AAA game though? I'm actually glad he's delving into indie games, and I actually picked up a few games because of his videos (Guild of Dungeoneering, Enter the Gungeon, Wasted just to name 3).

What I get for trusting the tabloids. Read TB's comment on the vid as well.

Someone has to review them. Besides, if all you do is review games you're going to get bored of the same recycled AAA rubbish after a while.

Even if I was not into a game 100% if I was in a party like that I would be a lot more into the game hence something like that greatly effect the integrity and validity of the game review because people that are going to buy the game are never going to have that experience. TB is the most legit in Youtube. He himself talks about this problem.

Yep smile.gif

I for one wasn't excited about Witcher 3, some movement mechanics really pissed me off during that griffin boss, which put me off that game completely. Then I gave it away...to you tongue.gif

So subjective as you said. Not that I thought the game was bad overall, just not enjoyable to me

I find Steam reviews to be the most legitimate . . . . . . .

Most of these youtube people have these eardrum piercing high voices and act like morons. It's difficult to find a video or two of a game I'm interested in without one of them talking up a storm the whole time.

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

There is only youtuber I truly believe does his thing because he just enjoys making videos (I mean everyone would welcome the money youtube pays them as well I guess, that'd be a natural thing). He rarely stream and when he does, the only money he accepts is money that goes towards charity.

Robbaz.

His content isn't for everyone, a lot of people I know can't even listen to him because of his "accent"/voice (Swedish).
