Gaming Culture Videos

by BillyKidd Wed May 17, 2017 10:48 am

Hey everyone, I was so excited to see that there was a forum here to discuss the culture that stems from and changes because of video games. I started thinking more deeply on how video games affect culture and vice versa, and I have since been looking for videos and podcasts that talk about this interesting topic. So far the only videos I have really found are Extra Credit on Youtube (link for the uninitiated https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCODtT ... vPCOr_Uydg) and they do some really, really cool videos but I was wondering if there was anything you all recommend?

Gaijin Goombah Media maybe? Errant Signal sometimes makes such videos IIRC.

There are some channels that are more politics and drama focused, but I wouldn't really recommend any of them.

Super Bunnyhop sometimes does some things that might be what you're looking for?

I like to watch some The Game Theorists myself. It's fun, light and entertaining. Extra Credits is really nice as well, bunch of nice topics there, as you already know.

I see that someone has mentioned Errant Signal as well - pretty interesting channel. I liked it at first, watched a lot of his videos... But sometimes I have this strange feeling that he is too theoretical, too academic. Stretching facts to prove his theory. I mean - MatPat does the same thing - but he does this purely for entertaining purposes. Errant Signal always tries to sound very clever - but then, sometimes, it sounds just pretentious. Don't get me wrong, it's still a cool channel with a lot of good content - but sometimes it annoys me with its style.

Also - there is this channel called Critical Path - some shorter, gamedev-related videos. Some of them are really interesting and put in bite-size form, and "told from the perspective of Video Games' most influential designers and visionaries" (channel description).

Cheers!
