nice try. but you haven't addressed the point. it's much easier and quicker to scroll a page and find a reference immediately than scanning through a video of whats said. how popular any web site is or was is irrelevant and actually reinforces my point that people are getting lazy and illiterate
jesus, just look at your post; one continuous run on sentence with atrocious grammar. you watch videos a lot do you?

These YouTube reviews aren't that much different than traditional website reviews, most people just go straight to the graphs.
And you know what? Some benchmarks are actually better shown via videos than simple graphs, games is a prime example for this, you can't show dropped frames with written texts, graphs and pics no matter how detailed the data being shown.
you must have never seen a frame time graph. here you go:
those little spikes dropping down to zero are dropped frames.
go take a look at this video - those are the same graphs that would be on a web page you would reading.
except you don't have to listen to someone explain the differences. i'd agree that actual game play is better shown but that's not whats happening here; a 17 minute video with 10 minutes of showing graphs.
something i could have read and understood as well in 5 minutes. though i am ignoring how you tube processes videos; where dropped frames and even stuttering gets lost. those are really shown with using a frame time graph via OSD. if you don't know what that is, than refer to the image i posted above.
