Holy crap! Why even call yourself the "Irate Gamer"? Call yourself the "Skylander Gamer" or something because this obsession is going too far!
Chris recently attended a New York event that revealed the fourth Skylanders game, Trap Team. He then gave us coverage of it, 11 videos! 11! In one day! Think about his E3 coverage and how he only releases 1 or 2 per day, and they show less care and effort than these Skylanders videos. It goes to show where his real priorities lie.
The first was just a recording of a press conference, blah. The second was an interview. The rest were all individual videos showing off the new toys and characters. As you can probably guess, the videos are full of dislikes and angry comments. A few wondering what the point of "TheSkylanderC" was when he was just going to continue posting on the main channel. Chris may claim "YouTube is broken", but I know the real answer is "nobody was watching or subbing". And instead of trying harder to promote it, he just gave up in a week. God damn...
Unsurprisingly, this has lead to a massive subscriber exodus. According to Socialblade, 245 have unsubbed today (so far, as of this posting), and 182 unsubbed yesterday. A good number of comments are "I'm done, unsubscribed" or "Why the hell am I still subscribed?"
Of course, there's the defense force crying that he can do what he wants. I think the 3 or 4 people doing that are nothing compared to the hundreds of fans he's losing over this. Chris doesn't care, he refuses to take his fans best interests into heart. It's all about him, and no one else.
An informant that watched the videos even compared him to Chris-chan, citing the "Chopper" video. He mentioned wanting to bring his own Skylanders, but didn't in case they thought he stole them. I am just... wow.
If I may digress a bit, these new Skylanders have really unoriginal names. Chopper, Funny Bone, Food Fight, Wildfire. I know it's a kids game but try to show some effort people.
This might be the true beginning of the end. Chris becomes so ingrained with these stupid fucking toys that it ends up alienating everyone but a handful of people. No more Irate Gamer, no more modern game reviews, no more anything. Just Skylanders 24/7. I didn't think this is how it would end...
EDIT: Now that the day is through, IG lost at least 381 subs. The most he's ever lost in a day, and that doesn't include the YouTube glitch that reduced people's subs to zero, or when YouTube did the account purging. Must be a deeeeep bubble.
