This is pretty much my exact journey with Jim too, I am pretty good at removing the artist from the art but Jim has made that impossiblewith him bleeding his politics into every video.I used to love Jim's videos back when there was nothing going on in the world and it felt appropriate to spend an afternoon binge watching videos on Youtube about video games (which I still do, the difference being it no longer feels appropriate)
Even after I got redpilled I continued watching and enjoying Jim's insightful criticism about video games and video game companies. I dare say, EVEN AFTER Jim started including gay wrestling shit in his videos, I still consoomed and found there to be plenty of escapist enjoyment about video games.
With this latest video, I am sad to say that I have been defeated and I give up attempting to enjoy Jim's content anymore. I was getting weary with the trans stuff and the casual mention of taking estrogen, but as long as he stayed in his lane and just talked about videogames I was fine ignoring that and pretending he wasn't wearing pink lipstick by minimizing the videos and listening to them. I didn't want to know anything about his personal life or his political views beyond how they directly affected his video game criticism that I enjoyed.
Josh talked in a recent MATI episode that he thinks it's clear that at this point Jim hates videogames and regrets making a career out of talking about them. I think the dispassion for his subject matter is now fully bared for all to see. He didn't even bother using videogames as a segue to talk about whatever political thing it is he actually gives a shit about this time around.
Probably this has been obvious to everyone for the last two years and I'm a blind sentimental faggot who was trying to hold on to my preconceived notions about an E-celeb I liked. I won't be watching any more of his videos except to marvel and gawk at the next stage in his tranny evolution whenever that comes around. Jim himself would definitely say good riddance and I'm tired of trying to find enjoyment in his content anyway
He’s turned into a fundamentalist (insert religion here). He cannot enjoy anything that has a hint of original sin in it.
- “Oh that company had a sexual misconduct complaint so I can’t play that”,
- “this company has used crunch periods to make the game? Canceled”
- “this company exists to make a profit, I’ll pass”
- ”someone on the dev team has used the Poggers emote so he must be a nazi”
- “they have a Trans character but the developer isn’t trans, I wish he would be beheaded by
allahZoeQuinn for this grave mistake
Jim has gotten so bad that I had to stop following on social media because I would be embarrassed if a IRL person saw my name anywhere near Jim.
Jim has fucked up, instead of treating his gravytrain as an opportunity to work on things that he is genuinely interested in and improve himself, he just wallowed away cooomsoooming and the only thing he showed any passion toward was amateur wrestling and twitter and that was only at the beginning for 2019z
Compare this to Yahtzee, who kept up his shtick but also in the same time has published books, made video games (and turned it into a pretty cool series) and even launched irl gaming venues.
