This guy used to do videogame reviews but now he's doing these interesting, surreal and morbidly fascinating skits with like puppets and shit.
For example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpTn-eH4omM
He has a similar taste to me and many others on this board (considering his love for Yume Nikki) so I figured people here know about him and like him.
pretty edgy. a bit cliche and predictable. eh
Nothing special really. Also doesn't come even close to something like Yume Nikki's atmosphere, both in genre and quality.
When will people finally understand that YN is so good because it has nothing of that 'le ironic postmodern pop culture deconstruction' that the video in OP is full of?
pretty much this.
Also, this counts as spam.
Because i'm an obtuse asshole I've decided to go through this video and point out some of the regurgitated ideas.
- Creepy puppets in seemingly innocent setting filled with weird noises(Don't hug me I'm scared)
- Murderous inhuman character with friendly disposition(Lamas with hats and Charlie the Unicorn, the banana slug even has the same eyes)
- Creepy Childish drawings used to create atmosphere(Yume Nikki did it better)
- Characters saying nonsensical nonsense and being delusional(Also don't hug me i'm scared, also done by lots of, "lol what did I just watch", kind of stuff like Salad Fingers")
- Edgy child kidnapping and murder to show of how creepy a character is(Unbelievable Tales)
- Villain acting confused as to why other characters don't like them(every Disney film with a crazy villain)
- Creepy house tour(Like a billion things, I don't know)
- Innocent children communicating with friendly being that they can't understand(My Neighbor Totoro, The Goonies, the Pokemon Movies I guess)
- Ironic anti-humor used in a puppet show where the characters have silly voices(Potter Puppet Pals)
I get that there's always going to be influences of other stuff in everything, but the product should still feel like its own thing and not just an amalgamation of other stuff I've seen. I'd call this creatively bankrupt, pretentious, and hallow. Even those Poppy videos are better than this repetitive novelty.
If Jordon really did make this thread, that would be really pathetic.
It's a pretty interesting watch, but I wish he'd go back to doing game reviews.
