Here's something funny, at this moment Channel Awesome has 1.25 mil subs and RedLetterMedia has 1.3 mil subs. I'm comparing these two, because CA is aspiring to become something like RLM in terms of content and subjects, mostly bad movies. But, RLM has usually million and above views per video, meanwhile Doug is struggling to get 500k, because RLM goes for more thought provoking process of analyzing the movie or movies that they cover, while Doug is making half ass kindergarten level observation (especially in The Wall video) and 2008 autism level jokes and skits. He gets a laugh here and there from me, but most of his videos nowadays usually get few chuckles here and there. Meanwhile RLM is rewatchable as fuck.

You must consider a few things for your musing. For one, Corona-Chan: Not in every part of the world can you run around mask free and have to wait on a long list to be vaccinated, which means that your social life is cut short, ergo driving you to watch anything to make time pass. Second, as you've said here, the keywords are "2008 autism level jokes", as you can find plenty thereof these days - only speds who collect Chipmunk Happy Meal toys would find Doug consistently funny. Third, #hatewatching is a powerful thing and many can get in on it. I personally detest Ethan Ralph yet listen to his (archived) streams every day just to hear him seethe when an adversary puts pressure on him. I could throttle the Gunt yet like to watch ThatRalphRetard for pure endorphines. And Last but not least - Have you ever watched Demo Reel when high? There is so much delicious cringe and hilarity at the same time, so you could imagine many people numb their senses before going in and enjoy the awkwardness.

Sure RLM is very rewatchable, but for the acquired taste in kicks, you would keep D00g on the side. We humans sure are despicable creatures lol.

Yeah, they're playing Dead by Daylight and this isn't even the first time. I have no clue how many times they streamed it but I do know they have done it several times over the last year for the Tuesday Group streams.
Looks like they're playing Kill Your Friends which is when a group plays together. So no randoms getting in there and trolling them, sadly.

Yeah, they mostly stick with playing with people they know. The only times that I'm aware of that they had their stream play with them is PUBG, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and some Steam Marbles racing game.

Smart? I mean, at the very least, you won’t have to deal with people talking about shit like #CTC or The Wall because of course they would.

I know walker just got back from vacation and all but it just feels he's grasping at straws with this one. He's talked about this ten years ago on both the old vs new and the underrated nostalgic classics. I don't mind walker that much compared to other cows, but when he fails oohhh boy does he fail. This isn't his next demo reel or the wall but it's certainly up there.


edit: he literally recycled a joke he made in the old vs new video a decade ago. The "I am what i am joke." compared to popeye.
