What's your opinion on GTA YouTubers?

Making money by doing YouTube videos is for people too lazy/unintelligent to learn a trade or get into higher education.

"I'm very jealous of these people and I wish I could do the same, but in the meantime let me imply that I'm very intelligent and highly educated while showing absolutely no proof or even mere signs of these claims".

i had my thread regarding chromexmodz locked after he swore at me

 

so i will say it simply

 

i hate every single gta 5 youtuber with a passion everyone begging for likes everyone exploiting the game everyone messing with people online like chromex did

 

I respect CallofTreyarch I believe, in my opinion he makes quality videos and isn't a try hard for likes

i dislike him he puts obvious spoilers in the title with the most obvious spoiler thumbnail and everything to get as much views as possible spoiling games for people who dosn't even press the video

I respect you.

 

Though in all honesty I question why you upload trailers...

It doesn't matter how much you make from it, it still doesn't require any skill, intelligence or hard work. And no, sitting in a chair on your computer, editing videos is not hard work or skill. Neither is playing a game while giving a supposedly "funny" running commentary.

 

Lots of youtubers became popular because of their immense skills.

Lots of youtubers are popular because they are clever.

 

Seriously, just take a short trip around youtube. It's not filled with pewds, ali-a, DSP. There are educational channels, talented channels, funny channels, all manner of people doing all manner of things, and editing videos can take often hours upon hours for a single 10 minute video.

 

The problem with GTA V youtubers is that they're part of the content-shoveling side, aiming for click bait over quality.

I don't watch them, as 99% of them are exactly what others have stated: Pure crap.

 

I'm considering starting my own LP series, but if I actually do (and that's a big if) mine would be informational and mainly for horror games, but I'd also do GTA. I wouldn't talk much except to give hints and point out alternate ways to do missions. The thing is, do people even watch informational LPs?

 

There's no way I'd ever do an LP and shout, "Hey guys, Real Badgirl here! Remember to subscribe and ABUSE that like button! Now listen to my sh*tty jokes and lame commentary as I play and show you glitches you've seen a million times! SUBSCRIBE, motherf*ckers dur lolololololol!!!!!!"

I don't think they would, or if they do they wouldn't diversify their LP'er

I don't watch them so I don't really care. Anything popular is going to be on youtube a lot and if they get paid to play a video game more power to them. Almost nobody here can say they wouldn't do the same.

DomisLive is apparently still sending people after me when I talk trash to him over twitter. Someone he knows commented on one of my YouTube videos and said that I called Dom a racial slur. What's even funnier is the little turd couldn't even specify what I supposedly said. It's sad how they'll be led on by Dom like that.

Because in most GTA V YouTube videos, they spend half to more than half of the whole video telling people to subscibe, leave a like, check out their other videos, telling people to enter shark card give aways, and shouting people out. Then when the video gets to the actual point, they speak way too fast.

You say "GTA V Youtubers" well I'm pretty sure Youtubers do all sorts of content, but anyway, I don't really know what you want us to say, they record their gameplay, have a great laugh whilst doing it, edit it and upload it. Then people watch it and they enjoy it aswell. It doesn't really bother me that they get paid for it or anything, as long as it's funny content and ends my bordem, I'm not assed.

Content regarding leaks, glitches and cheats of different kinds is toxic. Doesn't matter what the intention is behind them. Leaks spoil, glitches and cheats ruin games. Except for very rare occasions, but the general public outweighs said occasions.

 

Furthermore, they wouldn't be begging for more subscribers, likes and views if their motivation for making these videos is to "have a good laugh" or "have some fun".

 

I am of the opinion that ad revenue on YT should not be treated as a main source of income, but that's just me. It still does not justify blatant abuse of a younger fanbase by directing them either against or towards certain people or goals.

I'm not jealous, and I'm not claiming or implying that I'm very intelligent or highly educated. I can have an opinion on the lazy, workshy people in society who have manifested themselves as "YouTubers" in modern times, without needing to show "proof" or "mere signs" of the non-existent "claims" that I supposedly made.

 

 

Pretty sure you were.

Also acting like turning down the opportunity to make loads of money by putting very few ammount of work into it is what an intelligent man who can have or had access to higher education would do? Well. just. lawl. Seems pretty "unintelligent" to me, given how many projects of my own I could fund with the money and spare time.

 

But, whatever, really, no point discussing this any further.

I swear to god if I ever got my hands on that f*ck, he'd be in a coma for the next 6 months.

 

If the keyboard warrior coward sees this then seeing as we both live in the UK - I challenge iCrazyTeddy to a boxing match, both put down 1k each with the winner taking home the lot.

 

He is nothing more than a jobless loser who has let the amount of children subscribed to his channel inflate his ego.

It's amazing how many of these people you know of who live in your same state or wherever. I know ngclan told me both he and domislive live in Kansas or something and my buddies showed me a few stupid people on youtube who're also from Florida

Use zombie thumbnails from another game, that'll work out for you everytime.

This is a youtuber i also dislike quite extensively after i had a calm chat with him

 

www.youtube.com/user/jamonymow

 

He makes what nearly 10 million views per month and he dosn't bother mentioning authors like quechus13 julionib, they don't care so he can continue but it's still wrong in my opinion i know i can't judge but i still think it's wrong, i had hate for not being clear enough mentioning authors but this guy just dosn't care he simply does not care he also uses tags in the description which from my understanding isn't allowed, i think authors should be properly mentiond if you get millions of views on their mods just simply a download link in the description or the author name thats all.

here, i will get hate for judging but thats what i think about this.

oh and a extended picture on teddy

Making money by doing YouTube videos is for people too lazy/unintelligent to learn a trade or get into higher education.

Even if it gave you 5k a month or 4 million a year?

 

It doesn't matter how much you make from it, it still doesn't require any skill, intelligence or hard work. And no, sitting in a chair on your computer, editing videos is not hard work or skill. Neither is playing a game while giving a supposedly "funny" running commentary.

 

I get where you're coming from, but what about the basic concept of doing something you love to do and turning that into a paycheck? It does require some skill, and if the videos aren't funny/engaging(to the people who subscribe) you will go nowhere anyways.

 

I never understand why people hate on youtubers. I don't understand some of that sh*t like PewDeiPie, but how can you hate on the magnitude of what he created? You talk about a "higher education" as if it's just there for people to learn. You can educate yourself anywhere. The point of college/university always comes down to economics. Too many people can't wrap their heads around how unintelligent, lazy people are making millions on the internet. It's because they are intelligent and work hard to make that money. They just figured out a different, and more lucrative way to do it.

 

Not everybody is entertaining in that format, but if you are, I think it would be unintelligent to not use that gift, especially if your goal is to be as successful as possible. A lot of those youtubers are young, self-made millionaires. They can do what they want now. School doesn't go anywhere, but at least now they can afford to easily pay for it and probably anything else they want/need.

 

 

To the OP, some of those GTA V youtubers are pretty funny if they have a theme IMO. I've watched a few on stunts and some of the trap life videos from kasaanTV. I know it's stupid, but that sh*t makes me hella weak when people roleplay to that level. Like this..

Some YouTubers are blatantly clickbaiting or performing the old Bait And Switch technique.
