[YouTube] Linus Tech Tips is considering retiring

A very emotional video from Linus today, live streamed shortly after their YouTube channel hit 10 million subscribers.

I think most members of our community would agree that Linus has been one of PC gaming's top evangelists and promoters for nearly a decade.

I'm not sure a youtuber retiring is really news here.. even if he makes tech videos.

I've always found Linus to be pretty cringe, he always sounds like someone trying to explain something to a child. Aside from that he's got some decent videos I guess.

Have to agree with UltraMega, not really "news", maybe if he actually does "retire" it could be news.

I also find him cringy, doesn't explain things well and honestly for the last 3 or 4 years LTT has just been a clickbait ad fest, 15 minute reviews and at least 12 - 13 mins are just ads and blabbing on about pointless crap.

Personally I like Linus and LTT. No he is not an extremely technical channel but its entertaining and has a lot of it's own merit. I can tell you I personally would be sad to see him go.

Love my some Linus. Been watching him since day 1 at NCIX.

What a wonderful heartfelt video.

Been an enthusiast for as long as I remember I'm just sad how we're all getting older now lol. I've always liked LTT. not that I learn anything from watching their videos (I love Gamers Nexus content these days). I just love how he likes tech the same way I do. I'm not really the weird kid back in the day but I've always had this fascination about computers.

Can you sum stuff so we don't have to watch the video?
