As mentioned in my guide to my reviews, the Irate Gamer over on YouTube has been one of my influences when it came to writing reviews. In particular, his style influenced my attempts at sprinkling jokes into my reviews, and we both seem to have a knack for creating new characters and developing a storyline.
Anyway, I came across this video he put out just yesterday, which goes into the kinds of things he’s had to deal with during his seven years on YouTube, and the rivalry with the Angry Video Game Nerd.
While I’ve never had to deal with thousands of subscribers or heavy promotion, I’ve gone through a similar experience as Chris since I started out as an AFOL: experiences I won’t talk about here. It is what it is.
It’s worth watching the video if you have the time, but I definitely want to shout Chris out.
