He has done 9 reviews this year. Everything else is garbage movie reviews or garbage let's play streams and some E3 stuff. 

I can't wait for him to be erased from the internet like DSP, what a fucking disappointment cause I actually liked his reviews.

Imaging if your work consisted on watching movies and playing games with your buddy. "this is such hard work! Let me take a sixty day break, I deserve it, I'm so stressed out".

He's basically a slightly slimmer version of Jim Stirling. He makes videos usually parroting whatever the general consensus is without adding any additional insight or substance. Not to mention shitty, unfunny skits.

Nothing of value is lost not having his input on a subject.

Man, that already would be considered a break to me. So it'd be a break from a break. Though I can sort of see where he's coming from. It's often said that if you do what you love as a job, then it won't feel like a job. However, it's really more like if you do what you love as a job, then what you love will start feeling like a job and enjoyment will be sucked out from it.

Meanwhile, in the real world, people who depend on you cannot wait while you fuck around for two months. I'm not a simple cog doing menial labor that just anyone else can do. That's not to say I'm irreplaceable, but it'll take quite a while to bring the replacement up to speed and even then they need the knowledge that I have to be as effective as me. That's not worth it to the employer for a two month break. 

My lifestyle is plenty scaled back, otherwise I wouldn't be debt-free with a paid-off house and car and healthy savings. I'd gladly give up a portion of my wages to work fewer days, but there are very few employers that would do that. Perhaps I should go into consulting, but I'm just not ready for a move like that yet.

It's funny because he has that freedom and you don't and you're mad about it. :P

Will never understand the hate for YouTubers, even ones I don't like. Video editing, acting, script writing, marketing, etc. It is a job. And if you're a one-man show, it is many jobs.

As for Angry Joe, he really has slipped on his game reviews and it's annoying, but I side with people who want to be their own boss as someone who comes from a family of merchants who owned their own businesses (grandparents owned an antique store, parents owned their own pizza place, mom is a 7-Eleven franchisee now, my brother just started a nonprofit to feed the homeless in Charlotte, NC). I hope to one day have the freedom my parents have.

If he's taking two months' vacation, he's either good with his money or really stupid (if he can't afford it). But that's the double-edged sword of running your own business. All the success is yours, but so is all the failure.

No, jobs are modern slavery. The corporate overlords have rigged the economy to keep the majority stuck in a loop of wage slavery to keep paying bills, debts, taxes, and assorted fees, and society shuns anyone who does not conform to this. We have been trained, brainwashed, into taking pride in being a slave to the corporate overlords.

It is sickening,and as someone trapped in the loop, I am very jealous of folks who escaped. Unfortunately, they will soon be subjugated as well. The powers that be have already conspired to make it more and more difficult to earn a living as an independent content provider. It is only a matter of fime...

I haven't, and am not going to watch it, but Good God. All he's done this year is complain about how busy he is with doing things for his channel which has kept him from doing things on his channel. 

I can only conclude that he just wants to make excuses to avoid having to do anything at all ever.


It's like JonTron minus the controversy. I have no love lost for these people who pretty much never put out any content, while we've got others who seem to be capable of putting out decent content at the bare minimum of once a month, which is kind of too hard for some of them. Most do it at least once a week. Some do it twice a week. 

I get that it's not easy, but Jesus fucking Christ.

All he's going to do is lose subs, which I imagine he's drained this year anyways due to the lack of "real" content.

Youtubers have their own employers - the advertisers. They're not necessarily in a better position. What people bash youtubers is the fact that because their employers are advertisers, the best way to make money is to be an attention whore. Attention whores are despicable people. How can you not understand that?

or perhaps not. Consulting carries its own problems, like insurance costs, some tax disadvantages, and work sometimes becoming a feast or famine scenario. For now, I prefer the stability of a regular job, but I am working on other income sources.

What criticism? I didn't see any in this topic. Just that he was a douche for taking two months off. I mean maybe that sucks. Just like it kind of sucks when Raw doesn't come on because of the stupid ass dog show.

He didn't even give a big "woe is me" speech. He just said that he wanted to take a vacation, and he actually told his fans instead of going into hiding like Jontron. Not that he won't have tons of content along the way. Simply won't put out his main series.

This whole thing is just strange to me. Not sure why he's getting all the hate. Plenty of creators take time off to get their mind right.

Again, I don't know the show. I don't understand his fan base. So maybe this is how you all are toward him (as I can see in the video comments as well).

I unsubscribed from Joe after his Trump "outrage". But that wasn't exactly the reason. He was hardly doing video game reviews and he tries shove white guilt into you. He said he would be changing to make more reviews but I suppose that was nonsense. It's strange to me that he still has millions of subs.

I really used to like Angry Joe. I found his bi-monthly reviews great to watch. Now, he's just lazy.

How do these youtubers that previously are known for being big but hardly put out any content for several months live? Are they really just that good with money? I enjoyed JonTron's videos but he hardly ever makes new videos.

EDIT: I do admit I find this boards seething hate for gaming youtubers ridiculous. Bringing up gaming youtubers on NGG is like bringing up anything that's not PC on NeoGAF.

Did you read the OP? Did you watch the videos? Did you check out the comments? 

This topic is about the decline of one of biggest gaming YouTubers. His fans (and ex fans) are mad as hell that he keeps claiming that he's too busy and too overwhelmed when he's not putting out any content. 

And after a solid year of doing half assed work he claims he has not had a vacation in 10 years (which is a lie, he literally had one 6 months ago). Two freaking months of vacations for a guy that does 1 review a month (IE actual content people care about). 

Anyways if you don't wanna participate in the conversation, door is that way>>. I'm done replying to you. 


This is not being 'jelly' this is fans watching a train wreck in slow motion and knowing they can't do anything to stop him from ruining all the good will he built over the last half decade :(

A job is "a task or piece of work, especially one that is paid." It's a job.

If it's a job then it's a job worthy of ridicule because attention whoring is a major component of it. It's similar to people making fun of Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian except youtubers aren't even real celebrities either.

    So the only two acceptable responses are praise or indifference? Give me a fucking break. People like Joe made their name off getting angry at shit, it's even in his name. He's free to bash the work of others yet I'm not allowed to bash his?

    Have you done any creation or video editing constantly? I did for two years and got really burned out in spite of it being enjoyable.

    Dude, there are people out there who make more than Joe but actually do something.

    Michael Bay for instance.

    Sure, he makes shitty movies, but at least he actually fucking does something. And makes bank by doing it.

    Same cannot be said for Angry Joe.

    Your fault for working for somebody else. *loves being self-employed* I don't have to work for any boss or deal with any annoying co-workers. I worked for the "man" for 8 years. No more.

    On topic: I do have to question how much work Joe actually does. There are some youtubers who put up 6 hours of content everyday. Joe, on the other hand, doesn't seem to upload that much content. Why the heck does he need a vacation? He obviously doesn't work that much.

    There are people in this thread saying "I wish I could X", and hating on all youtubers in general. Sounds like jelly to me.

    As for Joe, I don't enjoy his videos one bit and he sounds like he has a shitty work ethic. If he continues to be lazy he will go poor like Spoony.

    Don't get blinded by the pointless youtuber hate, there's real reasons to be annoyed by this if you actually like the dude's content, which I personally did. (Well, found mildly amusing, but whatever)

    He barely put much content out last year, then apologized for it saying he'd do better this year... and spent this year saying he was too busy with work on his channel... to make videos for his channel, and now he wants a vacation.

    Dude's fucking lazy or has completely and totally lost passion in making stuff.

    Making money while doing barely anything, all the more power to you, but it sure as hell has driven me to unsub from him, and that's the problem almost everyone has with him right now, save for the people who just hate youtubers in general.

    Wut? YouTubing is modern slavery how? >.>

    No, jobs are modern slavery. The corporate overlords have rigged the economy to keep the majority stuck in a loop of wage slavery to keep paying bills, debts, taxes, and assorted fees, and society shuns anyone who does not conform to this. We have been trained, brainwashed, into taking pride in being a slave to the corporate overlords.

    It is sickening,and as someone trapped in the loop, I am very jealous of folks who escaped. Unfortunately, they will soon be subjugated as well. The powers that be have already conspired to make it more and more difficult to earn a living as an independent content provider. It is only a matter of fime...

    Is it slavery if you're the sole proprietor of a business, or something similar with Youtube content?

    There is a bit of salt in this topic. I don't even like Angry Joe that much but damn guys. He made his money. Let him use it how he wants. Don't hate the playa. Hate the game.


    Please wipe your mouth when you're done.

    Seriously, I don't get the attitude that making money equals being immune from criticism.


    What criticism? I didn't see any in this topic. Just that he was a douche for taking two months off. I mean maybe that sucks. Just like it kind of sucks when Raw doesn't come on because of the stupid ass dog show.

    He didn't even give a big "woe is me" speech. He just said that he wanted to take a vacation, and he actually told his fans instead of going into hiding like Jontron. Not that he won't have tons of content along the way. Simply won't put out his main series.

    This whole thing is just strange to me. Not sure why he's getting all the hate. Plenty of creators take time off to get their mind right.

    Again, I don't know the show. I don't understand his fan base. So maybe this is how you all are toward him (as I can see in the video comments as well).


    What hate? People are just pointing out that he doesn't have a real job. That's not hateful, it's simply true. Talking about video games is not a job.

    We could talk about a lot of jobs that simply involve people talking about things. Or at the very least, provides someone income. Reviewers for various mediums have been around since forever whether it's in newspapers, magazines, whatever. It's okay to think it's stupid how much some people get paid for what they do, everyone is entitled to their opinion. What drives me nuts is how salty people get when someone pursues an interest they have and makes money off of it instead of working a job they dislike just to say they 'have a job.' I mean we all know if we could do work relating to video games and get paid for it, we'd do the same thing the majority of the time. So what's wrong with Joe doing it, or anyone else?

    Game reviews, let's play footage, etc. are valuable tools for consumers to know what's worth a damn to buy, what might be worth it during a sale, and what we should let rot in the garbage bin. And you know what? At least we get these things for free, and don't have to pay for something like a magazine subscription for this sort of information like the majority of people back in the 90s and early 2000s needed to do.

    He can do what he wants but it's not necessarily a wise decision on his part. If he's been getting lazier with reviews then he takes the risk of losing subs and taking a 2 month break isn't going to help.

    If he doesn't get his ass in gear then he'll be tossed back into the corporate grind.

    I've been watching his videos for like 5 years now, and he's been very stagnant for the last several. He doesn't really do game reviews any more, and instead does boring Twitch livestreams and low effort virtually unedited movie reviews with Other Joe and that weird manchild looking guy with the beard. 

    Mister Metokur is making a video about him and and it will probably be the most interesting content about him in years outside of the funny Trump meltdown.

    It's interesting that Jontron was mentioned too, I can't really think of which dude is more stagnant right now. Jon barely puts out more than 1 or 2 videos a year anymore, but they're still quality. He's all but disappeared since that weird Sargon thing happened though.

    Joe puts out a lot more content than Jon, which still isn't a lot, but it has no quality anymore.

    Nothing of value is lost not having his input on a subject.


    He actually went against the grain on a LOT of popular games. One of the reasons why i like him.

      Shame about Joe, he had some really good videos during the 7th gen and was a welcome voice against poor game company practices. However he has made less and less content except for movie reviews/non gaming stuff which most of his audience ignore. 

      When he stopped doing his yearly top 10 gaming controversies was when I lost interest in his channel as those were my favorite videos he did. 

      His views are falling, he tired to take on Nintendo with their copyright system and that backfired, and now he is hostile toward his fanbase which will cause his subs to fall. I'm not mad about him being lazy though he should have just ignored the criticism, but he only made the ordeal worse on himself.

      He's so delusional. It's not a concerted effort by trolls, people came to his channel for the angry reviews that were put out twice a month. His "nine years of hard work" is nonsense.

      If you watch hid video you can see far as his angry reviews go it's more or less the same as any other year. He has made 10 just this year and it's July. He has just made different types of videos in between.

      It's fucking hilarious, isn't it? 

      People recording themselves talking shit are mad that people are talking shit about them and the shit they talk, and other people are sad that the audience of shit-talkers has upset the paid shit-talkers. 

      I can't wait until the entirety of paid YouTube culture collapses on itself and these people have to get real jobs again. Making money off of opinions about frivolous shit is a scam.

      There's nothing wrong with him taking a break.
      CFW Trick and Kotoko Utsugi's father are my idols.
      There isn't but him attacking fans about it and the fact AngryJoe rarely makes game reviews, which was something fans subscribed to in the 1st place, which is why he deserves the hate from fans

      Why can't he work harder, create a few videos and schedule them to release during this vacation?

      Even better, some Youtubers during vacation time schedule videos of lesser known youtubers they like on their channel, so it makes for some content at least.

      Being a "Youtube star" no longer pays as it did before, especially if you don't tow the social justice warrior party line of Youtube. A lot of popular Youtubers have had their income reduced or removed. Youtube is de-monetizing everyone who speak against feminists or against SJWs, regardless of how popular they are. Any gaming Youtube star that refuses to bow down to feminist extremists will see their income slashed. It's no longer about how much views and subs you are getting; it's about being a good corporate leftist shill.

      It doesn't non-political channels that poorly. Besides, Angry Joe considers himself a progressive.

      Except wrestling videos from many wrestling companies were demonetized, with the only exception is WWE, which coincidentally has huge ties to Donald Trump, so highly doubt WWE cares about Anita Sarkeesian anyways

      Joe picked a really bad time to go full meltdown mode with Mister Metokur's video on him coming out next weekend. I'm willing to be there's a decent overlap between the fanbases and the video will probably get a lot of views and be shared all over the place. Joe's going to see a lot of unsubscribes, let's hope he's not dumb enough to go on a Twitter tirade about it.


      Who in the world is Mister Metokur? I found his youtube channel, but I can't for the life of me tell what this person does. They don't even have a lot of videos up.


      A lot of his content has been deleted or is spread out and reuploalded by various people. Look up The Hugbox Chronicles, Tumblrisms, Deviants, Internet Insanity, his TGWTG videos, etc.


      Some of those phrases make me very wary of this person's content. Sounds like some sort of inane Anti-SJW stuff.


      He just calls out bullshit as he sees it, like headmates, otherkin, inflation and babyfur and so on.

      A.K.A he finds weird shit on the internet and talks shit about it. Nothing you haven't seen from other youtube channels of the same type before.

      He won't even work harder when he's actually not on vacation.

      Compare him to, say, Doug Walker, who puts similar stupid skits all over his shit, but he still manages to put a video out fucking every single week, with non-nostalgia critic stuff peppered all over in between. 

      Joe has problems putting real content out every 2 months even, lol

      You're paranoid. 

      It has nothing do with that shit. There's plenty of well off awful neckbeards on youtube.

      It's because YouTube keeps constantly changing what is or isn't allowed in regards to ads, and basically stays 50 miles hands off from actually dealing with, well, any humans really, save for really rich companies, and basically lets those dictate everything and do what they want at the expense of anyone else who's not an incredibly rich company.


      But whatever. If it allows you shake your fist in the air at the SJ Dubs, more power to you.

      How many of you watched his response video? He has already done 10 just this year and even at his peak he had 14 in a year. He has 80 hour work weeks. I mean really, even so, what if he doesn't churn out all the content you want as fast as you want, is he your only subscriber? Are there not lots of other youtubers you can watch? I swear, YT subscribers are a bunch of entitled babies.

      Most people wouldn't care if he had just said he wanted to avoid burn out, or something like that, rather than acting like he's overworked when he barely puts out content.

      If he legitimately has legitimate 80 hour work weeks, I wonder just exactly what the hell he's doing with his time, because people seem to work less than that and put out more frequent and lengthy content. I think those "80 hour work weeks" are just counting any time he plays a game or watches a movie or TV show.

      Like, no one really gave a shit the various times James Rolfe took a step back from the AVGN for similar reasons. Because he was upfront about it, and didn't get all pissy and try to fight people.
      He should take a lifetime vacation.

      When people say well AlphaOmegaSin didn't do anything for months and no one got on his case, why are people on Joes case? Alpha didn't leave a schedule or a plan in place, he just ghosted for a while. When he came back everyone was happy. Joe did and that's what backfired on him. If Joe just vanished for a few months with no context given, when he returned everybody would be happy.

      The thing is AlphaOmegaSin didn't make a big deal going on break and the fact AngryJoe is a far bigger Youtuber anyways, not to mention the main criticism with Joe even before the "break" was that he rarely did game reviews, so the fans have every right to get angry at Joe (no pun intended) where after Joe's "break", he still makes the same videos of him streaming games and movie reviews except now he disables comments and ratings to avoid criticism
      "Anime is for jerks" - Jeff Gerstmann
      Angry Joe used to be somebody great when the old channel awesome was a thing. Now I just cringe everytime I see him somewhere on youtube, especially when he makes rant videos calling his viewers, many of them longtime, nothing but trolls and haters.

      He became one of those critics who can't take any criticism whatsoever and now hides comments and downvotes (they are still there, and are still being added up, even if we cant see them) like an immature coward.

      If he made a seperate channel for his movie shit and left this main channel for video game related content, it would solve a lot of problems with his "haters" people still want actual reviews for games such as FFXV, Nier Automata, Horizon zero dawn, but he cares more about game of shit reactions and movies.

      Kinda this. I mean he is on track to put out the same number of angry reviews that he usually does. They are big production videos let the guy take his break from them and return strong and re vitalized in September. I don't really watch much of his other content either but there are sooo many other channels to watch in the meantime. I think both sides are wrong on this, the subs (even if it's just a minority of subs) for going ape shit and Joe for just the way he handled the announcement. There was probably a better way to do it, or just not announce the vacation at all.
