PewDiePie is famed for his over-the-top reactions to horror games. But that’s PewDiePie from 2012. PewDiePie from 2015? It takes more than a cheap jump scare to rile him up—and this reality is causing some friction with fans.
I know how he feels. I've rejected the PewDiePie Hype for years. This article seems more like a way to try and convince people how he's changed and is mature. Not surprising though considering it comes from Kotaku who have licked his arse for years
Agreed, how is this "News 4 Gamers"?
Oh it's whatever they are feeling like on the day Tried to post an article of Nolan North TALKING about the Uncharted film and Amy Hennigs involvement ....not news worth....belongs on Filmwatch Yet on another day I see posts about the Resident Evil film or how the Minecraft movie has found it's new director.
Like the Pewdiepie hype....hah good point man. I know hes just a person tho, Im not really a 'hater'. Overreacting is annoying tho....
Pewdiepie is big part of gaming media today. His videos get over 10 million views in a week, so making a news about him isn't automaticly fanboying. Many people decide if they want to purchase some game after watching his videos. If he would have loved the game it would have sold maybe 10000-100000 more copies, so yes he has power even if you don't like him.
Couldn't give a crap if he does have power, he's still an annoying jackass Vladimir Putin has power and money yet he's a massive dick They mean nothing
My 12 year old niece and her extended group of friends are always going on about him. I think you over estimate the maturity of his followers. What kid doesn't have a smartphone nowadays.
"I've rejected the PewDiePie Hype for years. " And your still commenting news about him plus comparing him to Vladimir Putin.. He is a just guy who uploads videos to youtube, he is not hurting anybody.
Rejecting hype means you can't comment on something? I don't get hyped up for COD but I could still say something about it if I wanted I didn't compare HIM as a person to Putin I was just making a point about power and money Just because you have both power and money...it dosen't mean shit.
Yes! I can't stand this Idiot. He holds no relevance in the gaming industry. Him trying to sway people's minds by Rejecting FNaF is reason enough to reject him.
If anything he has gotten worse. The guy can't go 5 seconds without spazzing out with high pitch noises.
I used to like him back in the day, but it seems like all he does these days are paid promotional videos... As if he doesn't make enough money as is... Really starting to dislike him lately. I suppose he 'rejects the Five Night's at Freddy's hype' because they wouldn't pay him to do videos on it.
There are also a lot of people that do things very similar to him but are either better at it or just as good but dont have a ad every freaking video. JackSepticEye and Markiplier come off the top of my head this is MY OPINION @below 100% agree
Yeah, I love Jack and Mark. They're both a lot of fun to watch. Those two, along with Dashie are my top 3 favorites nowadays.
Dashie is the best. Frickin' hilarious vids and he never fails to make my days better. Can't wait for his next Life is Strange video.
razzbroski? spelling a bit off l think, was my favourite with watching fnaf playthroughs, he's nice, gets shit scared and...he cried at the ending XD worth a look, think his videos are the most popular atm on 4
All these ZOMGZZZ fake reaction horror LP'ers have fastly ruined the promising indie horror scene. Now everyone and their dog is making low budget jump scare simulators for all these guys to shriek at. I remember when horror games were an art that demanded more respect than any other genre in the industry. They all follow the tried and true pewd formula: Collectivize your fans under a name (bros, etc) Constantly push that subscribe and like button Use click baity thumbnails typically unrelated to the game USE ALL CAPS TITLES TO GET ATTENTION
@DragonKnight Who you tellin? His Geometry Dash videos are the best! TRIPLE SH!TS!!!
Well, if he's sick of pretending to be scared of the FNAF games, then maybe his countless copycats will stop pretending to be scared, too. There's nothing worse than watching those idiots on Youtube prentending to get a jump scare and screaming like little bitches over something they know is coming and have seen a million times. The copycats need to become more original with their content and stop just re-enacting what they see on PewDiePie's and Markiplier's channels.
but he pretends to be scared at everything...whats one more game that isn't scary?
You become desensitized after a number of horrors, watching someone being scared after countless horror games would become a joke.
So the guy has stated that he clearly gets scared easily and that he is a fan of the earlier games, yet, the current one doesn't faze him which in return upsets people because he's not faking it for their enjoyment? He's such a monster..HOW DARE HE!!!
I hate e-celebs because we get dumb articles with a famous person doing something that has no relevance on anyone in the world except themselves.
It's fine and dandy to defending him for "growing up" and not faking it . But since his schtick and job is basically to react , while people are being weird by demanding he pretends to be scared ... what does he have to offer really ? His viewers arent looking for an in depth analysis , nor real reviews and preview . He basically overreact and emote for games he's publicizing .
How can you become succesful youtuber? People like your videos and come back for more. Some people enjoy his videos, why is that so hard to understand? Some people even watch honey boo boo and jersey shore..
Er when did i express that it's hard to understand ? I'm not actually complaining about him and his success . I'm just saying that he got a fanbase doing something , of course his fans will expect him to keep at it . Without that aspect , what else is there for his show truly ? It's the angle of his show that's all .Unless he manage to reinvent it , of course
Agreed with AudioEppa. Its a known fact he fakes his reactions and now suddenly he finds the fourth one not scary/worthy? Not a fan of FNAF games or anything but that is somewhat weird. I think FNAF 4 might just be better than 2 and 3 (which were more performance art that anything else) They are fun games to play on a phone touchscreen
I guess the sarcasm wasn't strong within my post lol I'm basically making fun of people acting like idiots and crying about him not being scared by their latest game. I do believe he (like anyone) can getscared easily and also he makes weird reactions to have fun in his own videos sometimes. Overall what I'm saying is that he's not into the newest game and people need to stop being emotional because they think their subscription entitles them to whatever they want from youtubers.
Proving how much of a hypocrite he is seeing as how he loves the games more than he loves screaming at the top of his lungs at his own shadow.....what a joke, please go back to the dark depths of youtube where you belong. Brag about how much money you make but say you hate the job and had more fun at a hotdog stand, now this. You wonder why people hate you.
Ewww a Kotaku article. *decides to not click on it*
It's worse when you click the view profile option under the website score options. All those awful articles you realize get approved "Rocket League video teaches us to accept our failures and move on" "Fans Don't Think Smash Bros.' New Tournament Modes Are Good Enough" "It's Kinda Like The Wind Waker, But With Flying" "Our Comic And Cartoon Recommendations for Arkham Knight Players" All they do is take gossip and their employees preferences about video games and call it "Gamer News." What group of 10 people keeps enabling this sites hits?
well for one the game isn't scary.
alright bro calm down
calm down for what? all i said was it isn't scary. it's just a lame trend kids hype up. maybe you need to relax?
Its tension filled but its certainly not scary. The buildup to the jumpscare is the only reason, really.
honestly..you've just described what could be described as a scary game..What exactly is a scary game to you? There are several ways to create fear.. why people think this doesn't count is beyond me, l've enjoyed playing it and watching others.
A Kotaku "article" on pdp.... Two of the worst things on the Internet in one place. So this guy isnt giving his legion of preteens fake reactions? Good. Next he should focus on something new and interesting like supply drop opening reactions. Everyone loves those, right?
thank Jebus for that. That means I won't get so many promo emails from YouTube advertising his latest 'OMG FNAF MAED ME POOP FROM MY BUM LOL!!!!' video. Now if we can get all those fake prank douches that clog up youtube's front page to grow up we might start seeing some interesting suggestions from the largest library of video ever assembled by humankind.
I haven't done anything in this series but anything that this dbag does means nothing to me
Cheap Jump Scares is what made him famous, a little sad how he has changed. 5 Nights at Freddies is one of the best jump scare games on offer today.
