    I would love to meet you guys but I would be way too nervous to say hi. I'm horrible meeting people in general but when it comes to people I like, forget it. I'm awful. Just saying it may be hard for some of your fans to just come up and say hi. Also, I would hate to bug you guys or interrupt something. So, it could just be awkwardness that was holding the guy back in the airport.

    Frankly the only thing I expect of you guys is for you to make what you guys enjoy. I have tried to watch every video you guys put out solely because I enjoy your personalities. You guys are comedic in your lets play-esk videos but show your human and opinionated side in things like dude soup and these videos. I enjoy the videos the most when you guys are obviously having a good time with the content. For ironic or real reasons the same. As long as you guys enjoy what you are making, I will be waiting in excitement for your next video

    James once again completely nailing it with the culture of internet criticism. There's so much "I didn't play/watch/read x, but I don't like x from what my friend told me so I'm posting this review of it" nonsense out there. People just like to polarize on the internet, either 100% in favor of or 100% against something. It's really weird. Hopefully as they get older, people will mellow out and learn to see some gray instead of black and white.

    I don't see what's wrong with me pointing out what is wrong with Battlefront. Because there is a lot wrong with it, even discounting the stuff where "people just don't understand the kind of game it is trying to be". Lots of bugs from my experience, for one thing.

    I think the problem that a lot of us have, is that we feel like you lump us in with the people who send death threats to developers over videogames. That's really frustrating for us, because we're not doing that, but it seems like you're telling us to shut up without having ever listened to us. By the way, that is how everyone in gamergate feels. Especially when you accuse them of attacking developers, when gamergate isn't even interested in developers- at least not because of their games. Gamergate has never said that developers had an obligation to listen to them. By claiming that that is what gamergate is about, you're convincing them that they are right about their ACTUAL grievance, which is that nobody actually listens to them and everyone claims gamergate is about something it isn't.

    So how about this: just like you think people who haven't played a game shouldn't be able to talk about it, don't say what gamergate is about until you spoken with people who are actually involved in the movement (I could point you in that direction, since there are some people who are more or less "officially" involved with gamergate now and act as spokespeople).

    But I think you're misundrestanding of gamergate is similar to what is going on with a lot of these commenters. They keep getting lumped in with the people saying "eat shit fag".

    Let me put it this way: the problem isn't with reasonable people. The problem isn't with people like you, who not only read criticism, but don't complain about it, actually encourage it, and respond to it.

    The problem is a lot of the people you end up defending are NOT like you at all. There are people out (these are the SJWs) who ACTUALLY believe that criticism equals attacking. I can prove this if you would like.


    So now we're all upset with each other, even though none of us are really the problem! Not you, and not the people commenting here. The real problem, of course, are the people who call criticism "attacks" in order to live inside an echo chamber and demonizing and attack people who haven't done anything wrong, as well as the people who say things like "eat shit fag" (that's never going away, unfortunately). It's like we've drawn a line to divide the internet in two, and didn't realize that we're only fighting (maybe fighting isn't the best word) because of the idiots that are on both sides, who don't represent our beliefs anyway.

    I love these videos, but i feel like if you just spent some time before starting the game to look at the fan art on screen it would be easier than printing off everything and would mean that we could see and appreciate all of the art clearly! Like i say, love the show, but I think if there was just a segment just dedicated to the art THEN moving on to setting up the game and discussing the comments it would be easier for you guys so you aren't doing too much at once

    p.s. thank you for providing so much amazing content that gives me a reason to put off finishing my University work!

    Bruce hit the nail on the head with the problem with most "constructive" criticism. A review is only about as valid as the time it took to get to know the product you're reviewing. This is especially true for gaming, where you can't just look at a game trailer/developer for the game/other reviews and say that it's going to suck. You just don't know that. I see this a lot with AAA titles in the gaming industry. It's very easy to just denounce a game right off the bat if you feel it doesn't cater to you. People have forgotten the difference between having apprehensions and having fully thought out opinions on something. Apprehensions are more than okay to have. You see something in a trailer that you might not like, it's okay to say "Well, this has me on the fence about buying it." That's the point of the trailer, to give you a peek into what the product is giving you and to allow you to decide whether you want to spend your money on that product. It's trying to sell you onto the idea of the game, not give you a gameplay of it. But if you feel like something is off with the game, the wise move is to just not buy it. No one is forcing you at gunpoint to play something you don't want to play. It's just silly to only see tidbits of a product and to base your entire judgement on that product around those small things. Even wiser, try it out at a friend's house. See what the hype is about. Test out your apprehensions for a few hours and see if they hold up after a quick round with the game. But don't post some shitty Steam review about a game you never bothered to deal with. I understand no one reviewing on Steam should be seen a professional critic, but at least try to respect the game. That's all it is, respect towards a product you didn't make in the first place.

    I never grasped why funhaus has been anti gg and or if they are pro anita Sakaka and zoey the professional victim quin, but I feel like the only reason you guys have negative views on gamer gate because of comments made about SJW's by proposed gamer gate advocates, because when the UN actually takes people like Anita and Zoey seriously when they spout nonsense in promoting the censoring of others on the internet from making comments about them on twitter being the mainstream face of "games journalism" an saying that all games are sexist and racist and not just games literally everything said Anita it seems like it would be a bad influence on the gaming industry when devs and stuff actually thought this is what the people who play games actually thought :l

      You realise your entire comment is one sentence, right? It makes whatever you're saying very difficult to wade through, and if you have a point, you've buried it in a wall of text, and it seems like you're another angry Gamer-Gater spouting nonsense (as much nonsense as Anita Sarkeesian). Maybe what you're saying is actually incredibly insightful. But no-one can tell.


      EDIT: I'd like to qualify, I'm not saying Anita does or doesn't spout nonsense, I'm trying to suggest both sides of this odd debate are equally culpable.

    About the whole making negative comments on products discussion, I think you guys are wrong. Making a comment about something that you don't like is feedback, right? Whether it is positive or negative, feedback should be given both to consumers and creators. If everyone just ignored a game they didn't like (and it therefore didn't sell well) the creators would be wondering why their sales are so low. Obviously you shouldn't attack people and be aggressive but negative feedback is equally as important as positive.

      Isn't that exactly what they said? They said constructive criticism is one thing, and can be helpful (although you don't have to listen to it), but when someone doesn't like something so they just yell into the void, or call the devs 'retards' or whatever else, that sort of negativity helps nobody.

      They did say that, but it felt like they were accusing both that commenter and anyone who disagreed in general of just being trolls. No one here is arguing in favor of saying things like "eat shit fag", but it felt to me like they were telling us to stop doing that.

    • JBatot3 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      That was the exact comment they made in regards to negative and positive comments. It was said at great lengths that both types of criticism is good to have and both help based on the facet of how they are delivered. If I never played the game and just disliked Star Wars (as an example) in general and made a synopsis about the game being horrible and boring to play, it does nothing for anyone. All it does is allow myself to hear myself talk (or read what I'm typing) for a thought of self-importance.

      The most important thing people here are forgetting is ... it isn't the relevance or importance of positive or negative criticism - it is the very reason (or details) for lack of a better word, that led to that piece of objective criticism being made. Without playing or having a valid constructive reason for either side of the coin when it comes to criticism, comments shouldn't be made. However, it will never stop ... people like hearing themselves talk way to much about irrelevant things. At the end of the day people tend to forget - games are games ... just go play them. If you don't like it - simply put it down, EXPLAIN WHY YOU DIDNT LIKE IT AFTER PLAYING IT - IF YOU MUST and move on to one of the other games available.

    Okay I agree with the points made in this video wholeheartedly. As a young adult, with little to no budgeting knowledge, I can't spend a lot of money. So when I look to the review comment section of a game or movie. I would prefer to have someone who has actually seen it leave an intelligent well thought out criticism or praise. What I HATE seeing is someone who is just "raging" for the sake of it, realistically because they are immature and want attention. It's like they feel the need to waste everyone's time because they weren't breast fed as a kid or some weird Freudian bullshit.

      Is this the same "constructive criticism" that has a 5 minute video of someone randomly yelling about irrelevant things just to try and be entertaining for views on YouTube? Just curious because there are a lot of those people out there.

      Simply put: a peanut butter and jelly sandwich isn't a peanut butter and jelly sandwich unless you put both toppings on the bread. Just like constructive criticism isn't that - unless you have something CONSTRUCTIVE TO SAY. Not just randomized yelling into a vast void of nothing hoping for 100 people to view you doing it.

    To expand on Bruce's point at the end about actually trying something, it's the same reason I don't care much for reviews, scores, or opinions. It's fun to hear someone else's opinion once I've tried something. But someone else's view point won't sway me to buy a game (or don't). It's also why I love watching LP's from any part of RT. Even just watching a group of people play something will give me a better idea of the game and if I want it versus getting a review.

      @SpleeSpree Outside of franchises, like I said, LP's help me decide what new games to buy now. It's part of why I still love watching AH. A bunch of games I bought was solely because I watched them play it, have a good time, and thought I would like that game as well. That serves me better than some review trying to break down every piece of it. That's just me though.

      Also pretty coverart helps. The more unlike how the game looks, the better! I'm old fashioned like that :D

      You're exactly right. It would take about 5 minutes to scan in the fan art in a high(er) resolution and just overlay it in. I edited videos for a few months and it wouldn't be anything complicated. It's literally about 10 minutes of editing and it adds so much to the end result, and I've seen them do it before soooooo....... I know FH has their own style and it appears to be an "ametureistic", almost early 2000's style with fast, sharp cuts and retrospective, low res, focus-ins that, in the real flow of the show, go mostly unnoticed. To me that seems like they are actively trying to artificially create memorable quotes. They may not be, but that's just the way it looks to me. I still really enjoy their content but I kind of cringe at their stagnation of content delivery. They just don't take many creative risks, just the same format over, and over, and over, and over, and over..................................................but it works so I guess my point is ultimately moot. GG Funhaus, GG.

      While this is a fair statement, they did have an art show where they did that, but it didn't get the views to make it worth it. I'm just glad that they decided to do some sort of fan art show again.

      I believe I had heard them mention before that they do digitally save all the art possible or at least were doing so at the time. I agree, it would probably make a less work overall and increase production value by 10 fold by just doing a quick overlay with post editing. However, the only trick to it is - being able to do it live, because keep in mind they tend to post edit after doing a live showing, meaning ... no edit possible until after it is all said and done.

      Because that would take time and we have none.

      I've taken this on personally to produce in addition to all the other stuff I do. Incidentally it also means I have to come in early just to get this done. So yeah, it would take more time. It's easy to say it only takes 20 minutes, but when you're already working 9-10 hour days, you have to draw the line somewhere.

      This exists at all because it's low effort. If it starts being more effort, it will stop being. Does that make sense?

    When Funhaus first joined Rooster Teeth, I was apprehensive. Maybe it was my own preconceptions that a group of guy gamers would be a bit 'Gamer-Gate-esque' (clearly foolish, as I was already a big fan of AH). Some of their early shows, I remember they criticised games I loved, and I was quick to dismiss them as ignorant, which again was foolish. Over time, watching more content, I've seen I was clearly too quick to judge. The whole crew are incredibly insightful, and their arguments (generally) are well-reasoned and totally valid. I may not always agree with their opinions, but they're very smart guys, and I appreciate their input on gaming (and other) media greatly. Also, they're fucking hilarious.

      I think the only probablem with gamergate is that they're angry because no one has ever ONCE addressed one of their points. Instead, they proclaim that they made a different point (like saying that they all just hate women), and then address that. Because it's easier to say "we should respect women!" than to respond to legitimate criticism.

      I agree with all the above said. What most people here are unfortunately missing is the fact that they never once attacked any particular individual. They simply constructively criticized poor methods of criticism that were being delivered, rightfully so. Criticism without a reason to back it other than "I didn't like it" or "It's Bad!" is nothing more than useless words.

    My favorite game reviews and comments were always the Amazon customer reviews that would either have people saying a game was awesome or terrible, when not only was the game not released yet, but the same people leaving the reviews would blatantly state that they hadn't played (or sometimes even seen) the game yet.

      Reminds me of my time working in a retail electronics store and having people return high-end computer components.

  • facepalm2413 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    i would like to point out, that bruce kind of contradicted himself about the whole you cant judge a game you haven't bought. Because at first they were all assuming that just because someone said they hadn't bought the game means that they haven't played it, and Lawrence brought up the point of what if they played the beta and Bruce came back and said the Beta didn't count as it's not the full game, (which I totally agree on the beta point, its not the full game so you cant judge the game that way). But then later on Bruce was saying that someone could just play it at a friends house for a couple hours, and they deciding not to buy it themselves, then it would be completely fine for them to criticize or shit on the game, as they would then have a good grasp as to how the game actually was. So my problem with all of this is that at first they were not taking into acount that the person who was shitting on the game but hadn't bought it could have just played it at a friends house, or something like that. They later go on to adress that and say that playing it at a friends is completely valid way to have a grasp on the games actual play. But they never go back to apply this to the comments they had read before, as this could have been the case for these people who haven't bought it. So in all Bruces whole "you cant judge it if you haven't bought it" arguement is quite ridiculous as unless the person clearly stated they haven't played the game yet, but they have said they didn't buy it... and im very confused on how to say the rest, so imma just sum it up below..



    well that was a clusterfuck of words that probably doesnt make sense. What im trying to get at is that just because someone says they didn't buy the game, doesn't mean they havent payed it. Whether it be at a friends house, or someplace else, that wasn't just the demo version or the beta, they could have played the game. So i just want to put that out there, and I know it might not be trure for everyone who gives a game shit and says they didn't buy it. But i like giving people the benefit of the doubt and assume they have at least played the game someplace for a while. ((and yes i know bruce brought up this point but none of them applied this to the previous comments they had read)).

    I have to say, the reason I wasn't a huge fan of the original comments show (although I still watched every one) is because you seemed to focus on negative comments. As a result, it looked like you were moaning and you seemed quite defensive, which I know as a regular viewer that you're not. It also doesn't represent your viewers, as I imagine 95% of their opinions are positive, although that may not be reflected in the comments. I may be alone in this, but I prefer when you take positive/funny comments or even neutral comments that open up a discussion. That said, I already like the layout of these new sponsor vids, keep up the good work.

      That's not a bad point. Since most comments are positive, it's reasonable for most of the comments on the show to be positive (although it would be wise to include some of the criticism, too. Especially since they can respond to it with a very large audience, and the person who made the criticism will never get to retort!)

  • Whoop

    On the topic of criticism, I would say that the opinions of games and their quality that James share on various shows portrays both ends of the spectrum. This is especially shown when he talks about Shenmue. Shenmue (1 and 2) are generally depicted as this great overseen and underground game that is excellent in most criterias.

    Firstly, James knows this and I think that he on one or two occasions provided with solid and convincing arguments (e.g. saying that the audience's love for it was mostly due to the revolutionary game mechanics that is mostly implented in all games today, and often even improved beyond that which Shenmue displayed).

    ^This would be close to the ideal criticism that we would want in most comments.

    Secondly however, just like a comment section, James won't get his message across due to the loss of attention many people have and due to the format of the show (as the show usually consist of a discourse or a unified polylogue between all members, such as James, Adam and Bruce, trying to build and share the same message to the viewers). That is why we'd usually, from what I remember of the discussions when Shenmue 3 was announced, repeatedly hear a only single sentance of James expressing his criticism/opinion, which sounded close to; "People have a problem seeing that Shenmue isn't good."

    /*or that's at least the impression I got from it, sorry for paraphrasing, huge flaw of trying to prove my point*/.

    Comment sections have another problem, partially the attention span; since no-one will likely read an essay like this and that most people want to express their opinion without wasting their precious time like I'm doing right now.

    I'm not trying to make excuses for the typical people commenting, but just trying to see the reasoning (which might not even exist) behind the flawed behaviour some people have .

    These individuals will always be around, but I thank you guys for sticking out and trying to educate listeners in eloquence, not only in video-game related situations but also in general commenting. Few other people on Youtube do this, and I'm forever grateful for that! :)

    Just wondering what kind of prep work goes into making the podcast? Where do you come up with your topics and how do you decide who will be on?

    love the podcast by the way just want a peak behind the curtain :)

    Haha, oh boy you guys looked in physical pain reading my comment. Understandable, as was I. Ok, I'm gonna try to clarify my nonsense ramblings a little, because I don't think I put forward my argument very well.
    I do agree that seeking to better yourself as an artist is a personal thing, if you're making your art for you. But when the purpose of your art is to make money for the company you're working for, from consumers, I think hearing from people who bought and didn't like your work (and importantly, why they didn't like it) can be as useful as hearing from those that did, if you want to make money off them in the future. If you don't seek those opinions though, that's fair enough, you have as much right to ignore their opinion as they have to have them.
    Informed negative opinions can be useful for consumers too, as a flaw in a game can be easily overlooked by someone who loves the game, but could also be a major factor in why someone else doesn't like it, and I like the option to hear from both as it helps me decide whether I want to spend my money or not. (Although I'm not going to then try and inform anyone else's opinion on the game if I haven't played it, I do agree that that's stupid.) And no, Lawrence, I have no interest in gamergate, but the fact that you got that impression from what I said makes me hate myself a little bit.

      I assume that your point is more, constructive criticism is important for creators so that they can understand why people dislike their creation. You don't seem to say that they have to listen to you or that you will force them to, just that problems with a creation shouldn't be ignored. If so I agree, to the extent that if there is something wrong with the creation in the way one interacts with it (obviously important with regards to games) it is worth flagging for the creators' attention. Their choice whether to act on this is entirely up to them. However if one dislikes the art style let’s say, that isn't really a constructive criticism, that is just that person voicing their personal preference. That isn't necessary to improve the creation itself, that is just how the creation could be improved for that person in particular. Again, this may be your point and if so I agree.

      Games as an art form are quite unique in that they are very interactive over the actual art (synonymous with the gameplay over story argument). This means that the interaction of consumer with the art is more important than with a sculpture or a song, so difficulties for the consumer to interact with the art of the game detract from its overall appeal more heavily than the sound mix of a song detracts from the song itself. This all being said I don't think it is okay to hurl abuse at creators because their creation does not meet or exceed every one of your standards (not that I think you said this, but the Dudes seemed to).

      Lawrence did seem to take particular issue with you and I felt it may be a bit unfair but he does probably have to deal with many people shouting at him over the internet telling him he should do xyz a certain way so you may have just hit a nerve. That or he was just getting angry to make enjoyable content for the person who wrote one of the previous comments. We may never know the truth. Don't hate yourself because he got a gamergate vibe off of your comment, if the first paragraph is correct there was just a misunderstanding from your initial comment which just means you need to practise your written communication skills. And that's not really worth hating yourself over, as much as the grammar Nazis disagree.

      @DiegoTheGecko yeah, you pretty much nailed what I was trying to get at. I think the reason i was being misunderstood was, as you said my written communication skills could definitely be better, but also I think the tone you take when you read something out loud can also affect how you perceive what that person is saying. I know that, hearing my comment read back, James's tone even gave me a different impression of what I was trying to say than I had intended at the time of writing the comment last week. And it didn't sound good. Also, I was just kidding about hating myself, I'm just a bit embarrassed to be publicly ripped on by people that I like and admire haha. But I'll get over it. Anyway, thanks for your comment!

      Haha sorry that I made that association. I think it was a leap of logic on my part, but I interpreted an amount of ownership to what you'd said... something along the lines of "creators HAVE to listen to my negativity because they owe it to me."

      Your clarifications make it pretty clear that's not what you meant.

    Just a random comment, not really attached to anything, but came to mind while watching this video... Rooster Teeth (as a company) picking up the Funhaus guys has easily been one of the best things for their content I've seen in some time. I don't say this because I thought RT's stuff was getting stale, because it really wasn't. I don't say it because I like them more than AH, because the AH guys are frickin' awesome.

    What it comes down to for me is Competition. In this case, specifically "friendly" competition. By giving AH and Funhaus each other to compete with, they have a natural "enemy" to go up against in competitive games, and even someone to compare to in non-competitive games. Watching the AH crew play Battlefront one day, then the Funhaus crew play it another, shows completely different playstyles and game modes. We see more of the game, and in a more comprehensive manner. For me, my Single player style tends to be more like the Funhaus guys, but when I'm playing with some of the guys from my Gaming Clan, we work together more like the AH guys.And this applies to almost every game you record. You guys almost never do the same game the same way, and of course you never talk about the same things, so twice the content overall is being made in a single game.

    Having someone to compete with in a controlled, friendly environment is easily the best way to make engaging content that I can think of, and I look forward to watching the next video wherein your two groups desperately try to crush each other. Good luck!

    I agree and disagree with Bruce's point about not commenting on something you haven't bought. He is right that you shouldn't declare something bad without having bought it, but that is different from me commenting, I don't think this game is going to be good, so I won't buy it, which is actually a relevant comment in cases of games like Arkham Knight. While the outcry was too harsh, because the internet doesn't have a volume setting between mute and max, it was more than likely helpful in getting the game patched, and making refunds available. The only issue that comes with that kind of commenting is that It is so mild it is almost not worth saying, when the Internet will just drown it out. Now because this is the Internet therefore I must be inflammatory I guess I'll just call Bruce a cunt.

    Tl;dr Bruce is a cunt

    Edit: Should have finished the video before commenting, I was wrong about Bruce's point

      I don't think you disagreed with Bruce at any point in that comment. It seems you didn't actually know exactly what you were going to write from the start, but you wanted to start off with "I agree and disagree with Bruce's point". Seems unnecessary to me.

      I left the comment before they had finished discussing the video, and just sort of rambled, so my comment wasn't super concise or poignant, but it's the Internet, so I'm not really going to worry about proofreading. You are right though, when Bruce elaborated upon his point, I actually did agree with him, the only thing I disagreed with was his phrasing. I'm not going to delete my comment even though it was dumb and wrong, but you're right. Also I don't think Bruce is a cunt.
