So, the popular (Most popular) gaming "Commentator" Pewdiepie has done it again: He disabled comments. I knew about this for a while but I never bothered to research it (Or Pewdiepie's community in general, to be perfectly honest) until today. And let it be known that I found some interesting bullshit in the comment section. Put on some unfitting classical music and get ready to read with me.
Hah. Oh gotta love those comments. Always trivializes things when they're under attack and exaggerates their importance when they aren't. Surprisingly, got 78 upvotes. Damn.IgnorantIdiot24 wrote:You guys are just assholes to Pewds. He makes videos and you give him crap for it. :/

I felt the need to respond to this, because this one's important, I'll reference it later. But this is fucked up.WhiteKnight17 wrote:Lots of people hate pewdiepie but lots of people love him. He's the king of youtube whether you want to admit it or not. He's doing something right. He's first place in subscribers and second place in views. If he didn't deserve it, he wouldn't have it. If his channel and content was as bad as everyone is making it seem then he wouldn't be so popular.

Well that's all I could find over the course of thirty minutes, those are actual comments, you can find them on this video.
Anyway. I want to respond to the Whit Knight comment with this:
Let's do an experiment using real world statistics and facts and experience:
Character A is a Game Developer.
Character B is our Pewdiepie equivalent.
A makes a game and posts some gameplay of it. He didn't do anything with his YouTube prior: He gets only around 2000 views and maybe 100 subs.
Pewdiepie makes a video: He gets no less than 100,000 views and probably a few more subscribers. All of which translates into direct cash along side his other his videos.
How is this fair? Why does the indie dev who has NO method of publicizing his work suffer to Pewdiepie's "Low effort, high profit" method? And worse, why does the community rush to arm itself and "Defend the walls" so to speak.
Let's start with a few answers that we all know: It's not fair and the indie dev suffers on the basis that enough fans will watch Pewdiepie's videos (And opinion doesn't matter) to guarantee he'll make money. While the dev doesn't have any fans and also can't pump games out fast enough with enough quality to make bank. That and the gaming community isn't constituted by idiots, children and both.
The community rushing to arms is what we'll discuss today, well mostly.
So this isn't about Pewdiepie, it's about his effects and his "Soldiers on the wall" A.K.A. White Knights. But not exactly like that.
SO. Get that classical music back on, get your popcorn. And put spill-able drinks away. Here we go.

Pewdiepie has a driving force behind him. He can and already is ruining the video game industry. His idiots are a driving force behind ruining games, and this isn't exclusive to Pewdiepie. The Yogscast is pretty much getting paid to ruin game communities with their new YogsDiscovery bullshit. And his community will collectively take up arms and form up and fuck everyone over for calling Pewdiepie out, and trying to bring his bullshit to light. He plays games to obscure to be given a shit about, or too big to be considered the indie games that REQUIRE attention.
This is the same damn thing with Zoe Quinn or Anita Sarkeesian (I butchered your named and proud of it. Totally an MRA eh?). If one of these were to replace Pewds tomorrow, than the SJWs would fuck up gaming. The gates would open and every fucking community member of any game that doesn't give women power would be fighting a losing battle against the never ending tide of idiots, sympathizers and SJWs who are in a league of their own. Every community would be fucking crushed or demonized within months. And fuck if any game developers like Phil Fish get on their side then it gets really bad. As soon as indie devs start losing their integrity or worse, the entire scene will become a joke. And how long until Triple A companies get involved? What the fuck will happen then?
Now this is a hypothetical scenario, trying to avoid the slippery slope fallacy there. But if those idiots get larger communities, it would be fucking bad. And here are the unpopular opinions: I fucking hate Anita, Zoe you just need to stop. SJWs can fuck off and if kids stop being assholes then we can actually ignore them. And Pewdiepie and everyone who likes him is fucking ruining the gaming industry, and the Yogscast and others and fucking the Tumblr community will all fucking co-opt the industry and in the end we are fucking fucked. This is all common knowledge and you know it. So what's so new about this that warrants it's own thread?
BECAUSE IT'S ALREADY FUCKING HAPPENING.
ENTIRE FORUMS ARE BEING CLUTTERED WITH SPECIAL SNOWFLAKES WHO ARE OFFENDED BY THE SMALLEST THINGS (Plague Inc. forums are a good example) AND IDIOT FEMINISTS (Lords of the Fallen forum) AND CHILDREN (Minecraft. Just Fucking Minecraft).
And no one fucking cares. No one cares.
Now there are good forums (KSP is filled with children. It's fantastic.) that suffer from this and worse ones that don't and will continue too.
But that doesn't change shit. Pewds has power in the gaming industry. Compared to others (Like NerdCubed) who aren't just playing shit games for profit (Yogscast and Pewds). And others are too. SJWs, Anita are prime examples. Phil had power but that's gone now.
Am I saying things that are wrong and probably proven false if you scratch the surface? Probably. Am I spouting bullshit? Likely.
But tell me why, and try to convince me I'm wrong here, because I haven't gotten fresh air in years.
