I'm fifteen, bizzaz. Not all youth are into this stuff.Logie--bear said:I'm 16. And I enjoyed Crank Yankers. This isn't anywhere near my cup of tea.Rayavaro said:I'm pretty sure most of the guys here are 25 or over. This kind of comedy I think is more built towards the younger crowd like me which has as of yet not crossed that line. I think it's funny how people find humor in ZP and not this. Sure they are different genres of comedy, but all together they both fall under the same umbrella which this all focus towards and that's VIDEO GAMES if you didn't know already. So I think it is unfounded when most of the people come on here and bash this kind of video when they are not the ones it's being targeted too. I found it funny, but what does that say about me? I like this kind of stuff!
To be honest popularity doesn't always reflect quality as the wonder of modern media has tought us.thedrop2zer0 said:They are not the same quality. Most of the Zero Punctuation episodes are side-splitting hilarious. Yahtzee has received thousands of comments singing his praises. VGT has gotten mostly negative feedback, with the odd complement thrown in here and there. The only good thing Video Game Theater has is the theme song. (Seriously, that's a cool song.) Other than that, VGT has nothing going for it.Harry Tatcher said:I gotta say, I'm a little disappointed that the same people who appreciate the raw third rail brilliance of Zero Punctuation (and the man is brilliant, make no mistake) cannot see the same quality in Scott's work.
Neither do forum posts, really. In any case, I can't speak for Frank, Scott and BJ, but I suspect they appreciate constructive criticism, as do the rest of our contributors (not so much me ). Scott, for one, has shown a superhuman tolerance for animosity in his repsonses here, and for that I thank him.To be honest popularity doesn't always reflect quality.
Agreed.sammyfreak said:To be honest popularity doesn't always reflect quality as the wonder of modern media has tought us.
Just to give credit where it's due, BJ Guyer (VGT's puppet producer) is the one who worked on Crank Yankers (and did an amazing job). My affiliation with Crank Yankers was as a viewer.Harry Tatcher said:I don't know Scott's affiliation with Crank Yankers, for example, but perhaps the sheer number of eyeballs watching that show (a show which never appealed to me) is on par with the number viewing ZP.
