I still enjoy AVGN for what it is, it is never laugh out loud funny but it is generally worth a chuckle here and there. It definitely is not as good as it used to be, but after 14 years, very few shows are.

In terms of raw comedy I think the game grumps are the best, at worst they are mildly entertaining, at best they are some of the funniest stuff out there. I just watched their series on devils third and I cannot remember the last time I laughed as hard, some of their other greatest hits include punch out for wii (especially the bald bull episode), sonic unleased, and one of the cd-i zelda games. Those guys consistently put out funny content and it all just feels very natural.

I think you can do a lot worse than AVGN, and he seems like a decent guy. The first videos didn't really appeal to me, I would say they got better over time (though he always did make some legit points about most games). From recently the Majora's Mask video was pretty spot on.

The jokes have generally been lame recently though, the angry act tends to feel tired and forced and some of the side content is meh. The in-video ads are lame as hell and it's sad that youtubers are given a pass with that.

For more in-depth videos there are a lot of as good or better alternatives such as Satchbag's goods, Mr Btongue, Super Bunnyhop, Mathewmatosis, DF Retro (more tech oriented), AesirAesthetics, Indigo Gaming, Lorerunner and more.

For comedy, many of the big ones are pretty bad to me but I do like Mega64 and Dunkey.

I was never a fan of the AVGN series, but I love just about everything else Cinemassacre puts out.

I think it's common these days for people to like James Rolfe more than his character which has aged kind of poorly (I think he's aware of this since most recent AVGN stuff focuses more on history and information than the old stuff did). Also he's definitely a much bigger movie nerd than he is a video game nerd so I feel like there's more passion behind that stuff.

...thanks for heads up, I can't say that I've ever heard of Gunlord X. Looking at the trailer for it though it seems like good stuff, now I'm trying to decide if I wait for the 2nd physical run or just download it...I'm leaning physical.

In video ads for YouTubers are given a pass because that's one of the few ways they are still able to monetize their content. Ad payouts are literally like 1/10th of what they were 6-7 years ago, unfortunately.

They're also easier to skip (if you don't use an adblocker).

A roommate actually said that even GameCube stuff is outdated because "newer stuff does it better"... Except for the stuff she's nostalgic for of course... I just can't.

You ever just fire up an RPG you have not played in months or years. See an old save file of a dozen hours or more and just delete it? May as well I don't remember what happened or where to go.
