You know, if people who watched Youtube criticism of popular films just used that time to watch other films, everyone would be healthier and better off.

@stolas One could make a similar argument concerning watching game streamers vs actually playing the games yourself (or reading a book, or doing some kind of art).

@stolas @starbreaker I don't agree, movie criticism videos don't even feature the actual movie (and when they do, it's worse, see Cinema Sins), while game streaming does feature the game.

@hypolite

That's fair, but my objection is based on getting other people's opinions secondhand vs seeing the movie or playing the game and deciding for yourself.

@stolas

@hypolite @stolas @starbreaker I have a couple (2) of good experiences of watching video game streaming so I can't agree with this value judgment:But it definitely isn't a common behavior for me, outside of watching world-class Dota 2 competition.
