this is bull shit

Even when he played a shiity game like Duke Nukem Forever, Arin and Ross were trying to act all “bah, look at all these cutscenes! Modern gaming sux! Back in my day we didnt have invisible walls and regenerating health” yet it was so fake since they seemed to be switching between enjoying themselves and pretending as though they weren’t just having fun a few seconds ago.
Yeah, DNF was a trainwreck, but it seemed as if they were trying to artificially bash on the game either because they wanted to ride of the success of the sonic 06 playthrough or because they were ‘expected’ to. Either way it was so awful the playthrough didn’t even last longer than 4 episodes.
Also, the Sonic adventure fit I feel was a sign Arin had a type of “stop liking what I don’t” attitude. Arin sounded so deeply offended when Jon vaguely referenced to SA being a good game. after the time skip Jon kind of sounded like he was agreeing with Arin, but as if he was sort of forced to agree.
Also, I feel there were a lot of games during the Jon era they could have played, but didn’t because Arin hated them. Hell, I love the Game Grumps, and I love both eras, but there are more than plenty times Arin acts sort of annoying or controlling.
They…enjoyed DNF? Oh dear…
As for Arin’s behavior, one thing I really took note of is how lowly he views others who don’t share his opinion. I really didn’t want to mention the Zelda Sequelitus, but it’s the best example I can think of, so here we go…
Immediately at the start of the video, he puts himself on a high horse when he depicts fans of OoT as obnoxious, slobbering retards who can’t handle criticism, almost as if they’ve been brainwashed into thinking it’s the best game ever and not because they just, you know, like it. He also heavily implies that his opinions are going to go against the grain, and when he does state his reasons for not liking OoT, he has brief tangents about how he’s going to get a ton of hate mail and comments, once again implying that OoT fans are immature enough to burn him at the stake or something. Meanwhile, he spends the entire video shoving his opinion down the viewers throat about ALttP being an objectively better game than OoT in many aspects, such as pacing and combat, instead of looking at the positive and negative aspects of both games. Both of these particular Zelda games are my personal top 2, so even though he was praising ALttP to the Sacred Realm and back, seeing him be so harsh on one game while portraying his significant bias and preference for the other was very painful. I honestly regret sitting through the whole thing, even more so for giving him a view on the video.
In a lot of schools, we are taught that an argument is meant to be biased, that we are supposed to be fighting for one side while ignoring the other. I personally never believed in that, probably because I’m pretty indecisive. I feel that arguments and debate should be able to see the faults and positive aspects of both sides and come to some sort of overall conclusion, even better if a compromise. Obviously you can’t compromise when it comes to the quality of two video games, but it was a very, very one-sided video when it probably should have simply dissected the pros and cons of both games’ structure and mechanics. What it is in reality is Arin going, “This is my opinion, and if you don’t agree, you can suck my dick.”.
Also, when he added Skyward Sword in the mix it really lost any point whatsoever, okay, SS is flawed, it holds your hand a lot and it is not as vast as Wind Waker or Twilight Princess but by no means was not a bad game and started to talk how the game was a spoiled brat and all that shit.
Also when he said “WHY DO YOU NEED TO KNOW ALL THAT SHIT LIKE DETAILS AAAAAAAHHHGJGJGJG”, Because games have a lore, Ocarina of Time was the first Zelda to have a heavy background and a more projected story, and when you complain about things like why would you talk to NPCs, that’s a problem, god forbid him he touches Majora’s Mask because he will get hyper NEUTERED. And the worst parts of it?
The first 2 sequelitis, I actually liked them very lot because he dissected it by parts and parts, I didn’t minded when he talked about the Metroidvanias much because it was a last add and wasn’t long, the SS was long, and the worst of all, he was BUILDING for it, he just added a third party into something it was supposed to be a comparison of both.
