The cynical asshole I'm in real life has extreme fun sometimes thinking about how it will end when all those "e-celebs" like Ninja, Amouranth, Pokimane, Wings of Redemption, and so on and so forth hit their 50's.
The Twitch thots will lose most all their viewership when they hit the wall but for the smarter ones they'll turn to being like cougars/MILFs for their softcore porn thing.

If Spoony hadn't collapsed epicly he'd be like AVGN is now and even if his newer videos mostly sucked (or at best failed to capture the magic) he'd still have a big fanbase (and not just the weird stalkers/insane autists who still donate to him on Patreon) who'd be willing to watch him as an old man 30-50 years from now. I know I'd watch old man AVGN in 2060 when I'm an old man for the same reason a lot of old people now follow what musicians, actors, and other artists from the 50s/60s do recently. It's all out of habit and nostalgia, even if they haven't been good for many, many years.
I've always thought, that their viewership is going to drop significantly, because who wants to see a man in his 50s sperging about new Hollywood movies or some AAA games or just play a game and suck in it?
There could be some amusement in that. Maybe some will shift to being like Roger Ebert as most crash and burn.

Pewds is set for life that's true, the guy invested massive in real estate in Sweden, another fine example is ABBA they invested also quite good and are now one of the richest Swedes to find. Idk about Ninja, IMHO he's more like the NFL, MLB, NHL guy who earned millions and ten years after his career end he declared bakrupcy. I could be wrong about him tho.

Noah, will end tragically one way or the other, his whole life is gonna end like one of those French Arthaus movies where you leave the cinema even more depressed than you entered it. Phil is like a cockroach he would even survive a 21 kiloton nuke detonation. Wings I don't know everytime I watch one of his streams I feel pity for him, it's almost as everyone of his streams is a cry for help.

But IMHO the e-thots will fall because, and let's be brutally frank here, they are like those dozens/hundreds of tv/movie actors who had one good movie/tv-show and ended up at "Dancing with the Stars", e.g. like the guy who played Carlton in Prince of Bel Air.
I really do think that the friend surrogate theory doesn't exist, these people have imagined friends on the internet and they change them extremely fast specially when a new younger contender comes around the corner. The e-thots remind me of all the dumped mail order brides from the Ukraine, Philippines and so on who get dumped for a newer younger mail order bride from >insert third world shithole here<.

I really do wonder how the "careers" of people like Keemstar, Onision, Shane Dawson, Quarterpounder will end, when their day comes. That will be interesting.
Well, good on Felix if that's true. I thought he is a goofball, but that's very smart decision.

As for Ninja, it can turn any other way. On the one hand he has enough money to live quiet, but full life, on the other will he accept that after the success that he's experienced? I remember, there was one Call of Duty player back in the day, who made a lot of money and even had some contacts with Hollywood stars, but ended up bankrupt and with drug addiction.

Noah is now going to be a burden for his family, but how that's gonna turn out is a mystery. I doubt he is gonna make it to some low end job, but who knows?

Eh, I get the meme about Phil's luck, but really, it should end someday, like it ended with all his friends and girlfriend. Also, he still has to pay mortgage.

Wings is a curious case. For some reason even people here cut him so much slack, that it's embarrassing. Pattern of his behavior is so obvious, but people still buy his bullshit every time and by that he reminds me of Boogie, who is still able to run his gravy train on the pure unrefined pity, even though it's obvious that he is toxic sociopath.

Thots I don't mention, because pandemic made their future obvious - they have nothing to offer, if they are unable to sell their bodies, so they either go full hookers or try to get into successful marriage, when their looks will deteriorate.

I'm more curious about TGWTG spergs and wannabes. Their style is outdated, their production values are laughable and most importantly, all of them are getting too old for this shit, but still they have no other options.

As for friend surrogates, I strongly disagree. Look at Noah's twitter. He's been crying for attention for years and there are still the same bunch of people trying to comfort him every time. Maybe, that will sound harsh, but if he was my brother, I would have given up on him long time ago, just to save my mental health from this lost cause. Same goes for other usual suspects. And still those people continue to do this. Why? The only reason I can think of is that they have no one else.

Keem and Pounder will be around until YouTube will ban "creator on creator content" and any other drama videos. What they're gonna do after that is another question.

Onision is either will get canceled eventually by all platforms or just go completely obscure, because even milking him for drama will stop being profitable.

Same goes for Shane, considering the amount of degeneracy he spewed.

On the related note, how do you think, will post pandemic economic crisis affect those people? Because somehow they survived the crisis of 2008.

There could be some amusement in that. Maybe some will shift to being like Roger Ebert as most crash and burn.
For all his controversial statements and retarded takes, Ebert was a professional and knew what he was talking about. Can't say same about those people.

Didn't Alfonso Ribeiro sort of fade out because he absolutely refused to be typecast and kept turning down Carlton-esque roles in the hope of getting his serial killer one?

As a side note, I think a serial killer played by him would be amazing!
Ican't remember but it surely could be and yes he playing an serial killer would be amazing. I also could imagine seeing him in a major Broadway production once the Chinese cough is over.
He's really a talented actor, IMHO.

Yeah, that could be otoh, the cougar/milf thing is already a saturetd market and some of them are high quality milfs/cougars.

IMHO, the reasons why AVGN is still a thing is that he never went full retard and he also never started pandering to his audience, he just did his thing and it worked.
He's the authentic guy from right across the street (I would count Shroud also in that category), if you catch my drift. Too many of these e-celebs nowadays are way to predictable as a content creator who's only in for the money, e.g. people like Ninja.
Ninja doesn't give a shit about his audience except for the paycheck.
Everything Ninja does is an act, and it shows, specially when you're older than his core audience of 13 year old edgelords.

There sure are some who will end up like Siskel/Ebert, but most of them like Movieblob will be forgotten like tears in the rain.

James Rolfe was also in his mid-20s when he started with some life experience (and a real ambition toward cinema and amateur film-making) and became AVGN as a character for his amateur film career which ended up taking over his life. Spoony and the other Channel Awesome personalities more or less failed to separate their onscreen personas from their actual lives. He definitely strikes me as authentic and I bet a lot of the reason he's so successful is because he reminded his teenage audience of their older family/friends who knew their shit about retro games.

He also seems to have the right personality to avoid drama (in contrast to his friend Mike Matei who has plenty of lolcow tendencies). Like Yahtzee of Zero Punctuation who keeps churning out the same shit week after week but unlike his fellow Escapist creator Moviebob isn't involved in any drama.

The key reason as to why people such as Roger Ebert, Jeremy Clarkson, and dare I say it, Randy Pitchford all have in common is that despite their abrasiveness and propensity to get involved in multiple forms of drama (Ebert was involved in a short-lived Twitter fight with some members of Jackass because he was critical or Ryan Dunn's drunken behaviour before his untimely death in 2011, Clarkson was involved in a lot of lulzy controversies in his most 35 years of work as a presenter/pseudo-journo, so many, it'll derail this thread if I list them all, and Pitchford has his own thread here on the Farms detailing most of the shit he gets into), most of the time(around 75-86% give or take) they behaved like professional businessmen and rarely complained about how much their lives sucked, they also kept fucking working their arses off. Instead of standing still and waiting for good things to happen to them. They took action like grown adults.

When a setback hit them hard, they bounced back (Jeremy and Randy still bounce, Roger's been dead for over 7 years, as he lost his fight against cancer in the end). Noah and the rest of the internet nobodies who reside on YouTube would not be able to deal with the incidents these three have faced(if Felix punched a producer in the face over a sandwich or if Noah had to deal with Battleborn flopping, that would be the end of both these men's careers). They'll find some way to fuck up royally. Felix, Keem and Phil are very fortunate that fate has been good to them, and in the case of Felix and Keem, they were able to somewhat diversify and adapt.

Noah had one chance to do just that and that was back in 2009 when he won that crappy award for having a funny Twitter account. He could have built himself up from there and left TGWTG and networked with people who actually mattered. Instead of gloating and mocking people in the comments section of his website. Instead of banning people who criticize him, he should have ignored the more malicious A-Logs and focused more on the kinder, yet firm users who had a lot of constructive things to write to him.

But no, he allowed his ego and USI to get to him oh so early, like many people who were big and popular online in the so-called "Golden Years" of YouTube (YouTube was always a wasteland of cringe from its first day of operations, don't let nostalgic morons convince you otherwise). And when the gravy train terminated for the final time, Noah was left on his own in a station he no longer understands. Surrounded by people who either no longer like him, never knew who he was, or if they did, proceeded to feed his waning ego with pure nonsense that never really "helps" him, only making his attitude shittier which only invites even more shitty orbiters and yes men. Bad influence is a vicious and unwanted cycle of life, and Noah embraced that cycle with open arms, he's been doing that for over 11 years.

Watching all the TGWTG people, especially Noah, slowly wither and die trapped in a prison of their own made up personas and one hit wonder schticks is a hell of a motivator to keep my mundane ass job and slowly go forward in life as an unknown anon normie with normie buddies, normie gf and normie hobbies.

I already feel like I achieved more in my life at 20 something than they all did as they hit 40 and I've achieved fck all really.

Seriously just seeing this guy and what he became makes me never wany to play vidya or engage too much in any escapist entertainment again on the off chance I end up like him somehow.

Plus you can tell when James drops the Nerd act and he's himself. Plus he tends to do more stuff as himself now too. The CA guys you really can't tell when the character ends and the person begins. Look at this forum. You can't tell the difference from Noah and Spoony or Lewis and Linkara. Its ok to have an asshole character as long as you're not an asshole when you're meant to be yourself.

I dunno how long do you think Mumsy and dadsy will tolerate him and his dog squatting on their couch as he endlessly tweets about DRUMPH instead of getting a fucking job.
Probably the rest of his life. Don't forget he lived with them until he was almost thirty, and it's assuming Miles doesn't take him.

Whatever ends up happening, this website will probably be long gone by the time any kind of miracle or tragedy happens to set him on another course, better or worse. Some people think Miles will put his feet to the fire, but I think being taken care of by his family will just deepen his complacency. Even during his peak years he was notorious for his shitty work ethic and erratic output.

Spoony kinda reminds me of myself for the short periods of time I was without work. Except of course I actually got the motivation to get a career.

Ultimately, he just needs to forget about reviewing and just get a job - any job. He can only blame himself for the complete lack of opportunity he is now faced with. Seriously, even having a shitty job will probably improve his mental and physical well-being immeasurably - a lack of schedule and things to do really can do damage to people long term.

Spoony has been without these things for nearly 20 years and it shows. He can't bring himself to do simple tasks like shopping.

Atleast he had money coming in the last time he lived with them. He was still making videos and making money from them. He's got neither at this point so I doubt they'll let him just sit on his ass and not contribute now.

This is the problem with Spoony. He doesn't want to do reviews anymore or get any job to get on his feet. He's content to keep playing the "Orange Man Bad" and "I haz a sad" act on twitter to keep the pity bucks rolling in. Hopefully his parents and/or Miles give him a nice reality check by making him hit the pavement to find a job once he arrives.

Irate Gamer announced a collab with the AVGN.

I found this particular timestamp exceptionally hilarious.

View attachment 1420824
Row 1: Armake21 (who looks like a fucking boomer these days), Silent Rob (who has a dead thread here), AVGN, Jedite1 (gone from the internet, apparently)
Row 2: I don't know, Irate Gamer, PlayItBogart before he became a drag queen (not joking about that), I don't know
Row 3: Spoony when he made videos, Hellsing920 (who died from complications of a surgery, it's probably not appropriate to cross out his picture), BigAl2k6 (ancient youtube ranter who let his star fade away because he has a life, used to be connected with Mister Metokur, Chibinekodemyx, Spax3, among others), I don't recognize the last guy

If it wasn't for Hellsing920, Spoony would be the one with the saddest story on that screenshot.
