Utterly unnecessary ranting.

It's not AVGN but I like comments about Amiga games on http://www.youtube.com/user/JimPlays...ch?query=amiga and http://www.youtube.com/user/ArthurDW...ch?query=amiga

It's better than young gamers reviewing old games which they can not play. They call them crap just because of that.

Yeah, that's quite funny. All the negative scores the Duck Tales remake gets is because of that.

The word awesome being used every 5 seconds to describe features about a game, especially annoying when it's used to describe quite basic things.

I watched two minutes and my ears started bleeding. His voice goes so high he could be an opera soprano.

The reviewer has some problems with the size of his lexicon that's for sure.

To be fair to him though, Days Of Thunder is a terrible game and firmly deserves it's score of 2.67 at Lemonamiga.

I've seen a couple of the reviews above and all the nonsense ranting/swearing etc is just not cool.

Prefer watching game clips where folk play them to the end - you can pretty much make up your own mind of if a game is crap or not. Or just read Amiga Power - they were truthful about games

Is it me or is the internet awash with some utter drivel? I'm actually thinking of going back to a 28.8kbps modem and war dialling the whole country to seek out a BBS that might still be online

Just ignore the reviews I guess; youtube has become "the voice of the entire world" much like blogs used to be when they were popular; to me that means that about 75% of the content on it is going to be utter drivel made by dumb people who refuse to actually apply thought. Blogs were only text, youtube is much worse.

I subscribe only to very specific people that I know deliver good quality videos, and my list of subscriptions slowly builds because I come into contact with other content creators that are related to the ones I am already subscribed to. Through that path alone I've now built a nice list of people who review or let's play both old and new games and also AAA and niche titles. That's a very pleasant way to experience youtube. Finding worthwhile stuff through a regular topic search has become a very unpleasant thing to do indeed :/

Here is an example of what I find pleasant (Flashback review; starting with the new one and then going to the old one):

Yeah he's pretty irritating. Does he ever shut up? The game is also equally as annoying though.

I've been watching through the Generation 16 episodes on youtube. Now there's an example of someone intelligent and measured that you enjoy hearing talking, but quite often just lets the game speak for itself.
