Dude, I was literally about to come in and post about Scott, but you’ve managed to perfectly describe my exact feelings about this kid. He’s a rich kid— he reeks of it. There’s no way he could’ve amassed a collection that huge by the time he was in high school, even with a part-time weekend/summer job. His parents are probably rich, or upper-middle class that showered him with gifts growing up. Reminded me of two friends I grew up with who were considerably more well-off than the rest of our group; parents were either lawyers or had high level college professor positions, and would come home with new toys/clothes/games for them almost every other day. Was quite infuriating since these guys cherished nothing at all.Scott The Woz. I enjoyed him for a bit but then out of nowhere he started pulling a Nostalgia Critic and kept cramming long, drawn out unfunny skits that ate up the majority of the video.
That and I'm willing to bet he's loaded up the ass from something else. Dude looks barely out of college yet he's got a game and system collection big enough to fill a dozen museums and mysteriously blew up in popularity overnight despite barely doing anything different from the dozens of other gaming channels. Reeks of something fishy.
But going back to Scott, he actually hasn’t finished college yet. So we’re talking about a guy with what appears to be his own house or condo, who still attends school full-time and supposedly only works part time. Sorry, but he’s probably a spoiled little fuck outside of his internet persona.
His skits aren’t terribly overdone. He manages to consistently keep his vids within a reasonable time-frame; 10-15 minutes on average. But there’s definitely something behind-the-scenes going on with his channel production; I’m willing to bet he was groomed by other, more well known YouTubers in the “video game reviewer” scene that took a shine to him and helped promote his videos, possibly even assisted in editing them. Then you have James Rolfe suddenly featuring him too... yeah, it just seems like his popularity is artificial in some capacity.
