GamesBeat points out how South Park has had its nerdiest season ever, and it'll continue that trend by tackling game livestreamers.
Cartman > PewDiePie
Anything is better then PewDiePie Actually wait scrap that...sorry his fans are worse then him.
I don't get the hate for him. Sure he's not my favorite YouTuber, but there's a reason he's so big. Obviously 30+ million subscribers like him.
"but there's a reason he's so big" Want to know why Back when Youtube was still young and before we had all the other Youtubers we see today we had PewDiePie Since he was one of the first gaming focused videos on that site Youtube it gained some attention, when you are one of a bunch of videos specifically aimed at a hobby like gaming it will cause attention so Youtube used to promote him on the front page BECAUSE the more viewers he got the more they would get paid aswell. Basically Youtube would benefit from him as they discovered back then They promoted and promoted, people subscribed and PewDiePie and Youtube got paid a shit load. But yeah, with that in mind, his success comes down to one thing...he got lucky since at the time Youtube was so young. He basically signed up and did his videos at the right place at the right time. At the end of the day he's not really popular for the right reasons, just luck. If he came onto the Youtube of today he would be nothing. There are plenty of other Youtubers out there who hardly have any attention but are better then PewDiePie There was a really good article on this somewhere online but I can't find it now...really good well thought out stuff. EDIT Found a good video on it...not the same but it still gets the point across. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
PewDiePie is pretty bad but nothing can be worse then DSP
@Anime OH GOD I can't believe people still watch him, it's awful. At least PewDiePie actually puts some work into his content (I guess). Seriously, 2014 and he still records with a potatoe
@ Snookies12 What -Foxtrot said. He'a a YouTube whore, with like 10 different channels. Also he's annoying as hell. Making a stupid voice and screaming get's old after the first video.
he manages to get his name out there and google search engine works based on popularity which is why he remains on top. i didn't even know who the guy was which shows how out of touch i am. i was looking for a walkthrough on youtube on alien isolation because i couldnt find a door right in front of my eyes on the floor. the guy was funny for about 5 minutes and then i couldn't take it anymore but whenever i look up games he's usually at the top of the list. since most of us are lazy we just click the first one and presto, he stays on top. now i know to look further.
Man, I've been thinking this whole season that they should do YouTube commentators. This is going to be epic... I hope they have some appearances.
first time ive had a smile on my face today XD
Dis gon be good
I hope they'll tear the ***ot a new *sshole.
I have a funny feeling they are going to go easy on him...didn't he get a free copy of the Stick of Truth. I don't know if that would affect anything but you never know.
I honestly had never heard of pewdiepie until around a year ago. Even though I had started watching and subscribing to lot's of YouTubers many years before. I actually see no more appeal in his videos than I do other YouTubers which has me wondering why his channel has so many subscribers and who are the people actually watching him. Some of my top subscriptions I watch videos of frequently are: AlphaOmegaSin, AngryJoeShow, boogie2988, Chris Stuckmann, Cinemassacre, ERB, GameXplain, Lord Karnage, Markiplier, OmniOmegaOB, ReviewTechUSA, RomanAtwood, Smosh, Tobuscus, TryHardNinja, and whiteboy7thst.
I see pew d pie as the bottom of the barrel, he over acts to the point were its annoying. I prefer bogie's francis persona. Plus you get to see his other side. PDP gota give him credit for staying in character though. And good for him hes managed to make money out of it. Im sure PDP is a cool guy when not in character.
Boogie aka Francis is a good example of a genuine person on YouTube. If all you've seen it him is Francis, you should watch his other videos. Seems like a real stand up guy
Should be a good episode but really, I want South Park to tackle this new rise in radical feminism, that would be an E-P-I-C episode if they done it right.
LOL. I don't think we've been watching the same series. South Park would be a lot more likely to tackle the sort of people who complain about a "new rise in radical feminism."
Did you not see "The Cissy" this season? They definitely tackled radical feminism in that one.
Who is this pewdiepie and why do people become fans of people on youtube?
I've watched a few of his videos, not really my kind of channel although I admit he did makes me laugh a bit. I don't think he deserves any hate as he's just doing his own thing, don't like his videos? don't watch them and just find a youtuber that is more suited to your tastes, simple.
Oooh god NOOO WHYYYYY ?
heard about this kid a couple months ago from one of my gamer friends. i watched a couple of his vids to see what all the fuss was about, he was so unfunny and stupid I left confused about why hes so popular but obviously what he does attracts some people, cant argue with his success.
Pewds will love this though, he likes SP, has an overlapping sense of humour etc. They couldn't do him more of an honour. He knows how stupid it is that's he's so successful doing what he does. XD
God I wish they would hurry up and make a new South Park game. Either a sequel to stick of truth with the Lord Of the Rings theme. Or a new version of the game with the superhero theme and the Coon. I thought Stick of Truth was a really great game. Shame Pip wasn't in the game.
PDP is ok... I mean people don't like IGN but they still support them by visiting the site. Same is happening with PDP videos.
A lot of people don't like PewDiePie but I think he's a good hearted guy just enjoying life. People hate popularity of something or someone they don't like. If it don't affect your life why does it matter.
Oh, don't worry. A new game is coming. It's definitely on the way.
His popularity might increase with the extra exposure. No press is bad press.
I've never watched a pewdiepie video. ...Do I win anything?
I was unfortunate enough to have to sit through a few of his videos.. How can someone so annoying get so many views? Just 5 minutes of pewdiepie was more unbearable than 5 hours of epic sax guy (yes, I lead an exciting life!)
