You aren't the only one that's noticed this. I agree entirely. Her lyrics lately seem to be more aimed at criticizing the gamers than the games.themerrygambit said:[...] I just think she's lost her passion for video games as a medium/muse for her songs. I mean I could be completely wrong and she might love it. I'm just noticing a big difference from her earlier song reviews in comparison to her latter ones.
In the Halo Reach review I didn't see any references to the game at all. The main message of the song seemed to be using the game as a way to tell us to stop using a video game character in order to feel heroic and instead be heroic in our real lives. It's an inspiring message but seems kind of anti-video game in a way.
Today's video kind of poked fun at the idea of people holed up in their homes playing star craft all day.
I mean I could be simply crazy and sniffing too much glue but try looking at her recent songs/videos again with that kind of attitude in mind... maybe you'll see what I'm talking about.
Again I in no way was trying to insult Rebecca in any way. I think she's immensely talented. I just think she might be losing her passion for making songs about video games. Singers and song writers need to write songs about things they are passionate about, and when you're not all that into a video game I imagine it's quite hard and one might try to make the song about something they feel is more meaningful... just sayin.
Anyway I wish you all well and thanks for calling me out on sounding Trollish... it wasn't my intention.
