Hosts & Guests
(15:16 - 1:53:56) *Video One*
You Didn't Finish The Game (The Jimquisition) by Jim Sterling (Aka: Jim Big Bald Mad)
(18:42) "Whenever a controversial review comes out, and a fandom gets mad, which it always does, because the fanbase is fucking exhausting."
(28:01) "I’m here to point out the tactical stupidity of using that concept [Reviewers need to finish video games] to defend a videogame from a big mean reviewer what didn’t like it."
(32:46) "This argument is treated by many fandoms as the ultimate gotcha, the holy grail of self-soothing justice - if they can prove a reviewer didn’t finish a game, or just convince themself of it, they can discredit said review completely."
(42:36) "If they got what they wanted and they forced every reviewer to play every game to thorough completion, it would be far more likely to lower a score than raise it."
(44:43) Quick Opinions on Hill House, Bly Manor & Midnight Mass
(45:37) "You can’t improve someone’s opinion of something by cramming it down their throat."
(56:58) "The further I got into it [Boltgun], the more tired I became, the more its little minor flaws began to bug me, and the lower my opinion sank."
(59:30) Linus Tech Tips Drama / SOMA Reviews / Resident Evil 4 Remake / Gollum
(1:06:16) Darkest Dungeon 1 & 2 changes / Theo throws a wrench
(1:15:06) "Then I kept playing, [Redfall] I kept playing until I found out how fucking repetitive it was."
(1:21:08) Breath of the Wild / Scores / Bias & Reviews
(1:26:58) Rags solves a personal mystery
(1:34:54) Indigo Gaming gives rare IGN praise
(1:37:01) He-Man characters, Rags loves them!
(1:39:41) "I could show them a 100% completed save file and it wouldn’t make a difference, they’d find something else."
(1:50:34) "And they will claim anything, no matter how unreasonably, to chop up some onions, dip that reality in gravy, and shove it down your fucking throat."
(1:50:59) "It's not about whether the reviewer spent enough arbitrary time in the game before giving their opinion in a review that ultimately won't matter."
(1:57:21 - 4:28:05) *Video Two*
You Don't Need To Finish Games by GC Vazquez (Aka: Breaking Theos Soul... again)
(1:57:53) Theo realizing what kind of video this will be
(1:58:43) "Time constraints I had as a child when it came to playing games sparked a very early obsession with finishing them. Before the 5-day period was up, I. Had. To. Beat. That. Game."
