I've seen a half dozen crapgamer videos over the years, enough to know that he's one of the main Xbox fanboys on Youtube. That's why it surprised me when I saw some videos from him, where he was being pretty negative about Xbox. I'll put a couple of examples below.

Does anybody watch this guy regularly? Any opinions?







Reminded me of MBG and his transition...

Gotta get those clicks. Being one of the few pro Xbox guys on YT probably didn't get the traffic they desired.

Of course there is truth in CG and MBGs videos. But it's always taken to the extreme and then they make an attempt to justify the clickbait title.

Like for example, MBG made a video on some mobile racing game that got the Forza name slapped onto it. He was bemoaning the fact that with the Xbox's lack of games, why isnt it coming to Xbox? He even admitted in the video that Xbox gamers wouldn't buy it. But with his current direction, he can lay into Xbox no matter what they do.

I think that he even had to rename that video or another one, as it was an obvious troll.

First of all his problem that he wants to be things like the old ways. I have been in the tech business and one this Microsoft don't do is turn back technology.

Crapgamer had high expectation and he now doesn't like the fact PC gamers are now part of the Xbox live system and to him, it will kill his gaming experience because now he thinks it will make the number of Xbox users small which it clearly shows that is not the fact.

He had a duel with Dealer and got his ass whipped.

Another one who got like this was the MBG or whatever his name,

Probably his only source of income extreme click bait. . Even before he started going negative on Xbox he would recycle the title for his videos over and over again stuff like "Megaton", or "Microsoft has finally done it"or "Microsoft issues warning to all Xbox users" etc.

And this surprises people why?

The Xbox brand is in a terrible state. Unless Xbox shows some ridiculous looking exclusive gamesfor the launch year at E3 then they are in serious trouble. Even then they might be in real trouble anyway.

Youtubers gotta make drama to get those clicks. We're a year and a half from next gen and in a major lull. This fall is going to be boring with so few releases anywhere, so people have to manufacture drama.

Hedon Laugh all you want. Doesn't change anything. The brand perception is so bad now that even their core fanbase is starting to drop them.

Its not like Xbox doing well or not doing well has anything to do with what this tool puts out in his videos though

Can't tell if this sarcasm or not.

People do actually listen. That is why they are called influencers.

Why would it be sarcasm? Has he not always put out videos about how great Xbox is and bad PS is? No reason to take him seriously.

Because they do influence opinion.

His sub base takes him seriously, though.
But again reality has nothing to do with his videos. So saying that you think Xbox is in a bad state really doesn't matter in regards to him and his videos.

And yet reality made the videos happen. Nothing he says here is wrong. You may not agree with his opinion, but the facts the videos are built on is undeniable.

So, yes. Me saying that Xbox is a bad state does matter in regards to his videos. He isn't the only person saying it.

Then again I don't tive a crap about youtuber opinions anyway. I only said what I said because the discontent and negative perception of Xbox is big & still growing. This video is just one example, there are a crap tonn more.

The point is whatever issues Xbox has is nothing new. This channel is either pure clickbait or just an angry fanboy lashing out because of his team "losing".

It doesn't matter if there are facts in the video because that isn't why the video is being made.

Andy, it's Crapgamer. Why do you even care?
I don't. I know he's an idiot, so I'm not taking it seriously, but I just thought the change of position (from rabid fanboy to this) was interesting. I wouldn't say I "care," exactly. It's a slow time for game news.

I wont even mention that dips***'s name (he doesnt deserve that...) but, he lives up to it admirably. He's the poster child to his own poster child. Best to ignore that idiot.
