Not my thing, you don't even talk about the game and half of your 12 seconds is spent saying stuff like "you cock muffin".

If you want to do the quick review style, then you need to have a stack of back to back reviews that end up going for 3 or 4 minutes.

It doesn't really offer anything to the viewer as you don't talk about the game in the slightest and I didn't find it funny.

EDIT: There is also no need to double post.

It just doesn't work for me. You're giving yourself enough time for one joke and relying too much on just dropping a swear word to be funny. With one joke videos if the joke doesn't work neither does the video.

If you strung a bunch of videos together like already suggested it might work better since the good jokes will carry the misses.

Work on your delivery, try to be a little more clever (the Harvest Moon joke wasn't bad) and edit several 12 second clips into a single video so you can be a little more spontaneous with your humor.

Also join video game forums because you want to discuss video games instead of advertise your Youtube channel.

You missed the "swearing at video games on YouTube" trend by a good eight years. These videos are terrible.

These are complete rip off of ProJared's one minute reviews (and I imagine he wasn't even the first to do those) only he at least manages to squeeze some actual info about the game in there, doesn;t need to resort to swearing to try and be funny, and has much much clearer audio and higher quality video.

12 seconds is not enough to say anything worthwhile about the game, and the 'jokes' you've used instead are tired internet memes and swearing. Yawn.

I'm surprised you guys bother to watch these. I used to enjoy these threads because they gave me an excuse to direct disparaging remarks at people who come here just to publicize their derivative, deeply unfunny youtube videos. Now, I can't even be bothered to do that...

I watched one. Mostly just to see how someone could try to pass off a 12 second video as a game review. It was surprisingly worse than I had expected.
