Intelligence and arrogance are not mutually exclusive. =oP
I remember your post from the last time I brought up TB. While I strongly disagree with many things in TB's six year old post, such as his Big Bang straw man, I am not really concerned about his personal life or religious views. For the same reason I can accept Isaac Newton's scientific work without also believing in alchemy, TB's reviews stand or fall on their own merits.

-spend 10 minutes bitching about lack of FOV slider
-spend 10 minutes stuck on a very easy puzzle
-spend 10 minutes talking about how awesome he is with his dual titans and 2000 dollar recording setup
#1. Yeah, that's his pet peeve in any FPS.
#2. That must mean he's stupid, right? If he's stuck, that's actually pretty useful for someone like me to see.
#3. I haven't come across this at all.

Got any links to those statements?

I don't even know what that means in this context.

Well shoot, why even create content if it's that easy? Upload some random crap and use your personal botnet to churn out billions of views!

So if ad revenue generated from producing popular content doesn't work, and the grim reality is 'game reviewers' are being paid off by a conspiracy of publishers (it's like a gaggle of geese), how do people like The Angry Video Game Nerd, who reviews ancient NES games from long-dissolved companies, or The Nostalgia Critic, who reviews old 80's and 90's movies, make a living? Both have been successful enough to turn their hobbies into full-time jobs. Who's paying them off?

What sort of regulations? What entity would administer them?

Mrs. Sweet Old Granny is totally in the custom pie business to make that sweet, sweet tin. It couldn't possibly be that she loves baking or anything, or that turning her joy into a business is what lets her continue to do what she loves. No, it's all about da Benjamins!
IskatuMesk wrote:It is very much a business, an extremely lucrative one at that. TB rakes in tons of cash and everything he does is to that end, just like every other person like him. That doesn't necessarily make him a bad person, just a capitalist. I am of the opinion that capitalists should be burned at the stake.
I'd be curious to see this financial dossier you seem to possess.
