There are plenty of 'famous' people on the internet now, and most of us follow at least one or two of them. For me, it all started with the 'Nerd'. James Rolfe, also known as 'The Angry Video Game Nerd', and I still enjoy watching his videos. However, I used to watch a ton of of other people as well, and even though it would be impossible to go through, and list off everyone I stopped watching, and the reasons behind it, I decided to focus on just a few.

As we all know, the best and worst part of a community, are it's fans. Some people can handle the fact that you no longer enjoy watching an 'Internet Celebrity'. Some people can't. The famous line If you don't like it, don't watch it. is usually the first thing people fall back on, but to me, that line translates into If you don't like it, don't talk about it!

This topic is for anyone who dares to talk about it. So please list the 'internet Celebrities' you no longer follow, and the reason. Remember, there is no 'perfect' reason to stop watching someone.

Also I get the humor of some of these guys, I just don't find them funny.

I'll get started.

That Guy With The Glasses

I used to be an avid watcher of this guy, but after a while, I started to realize that I was watching a grown man, scream at the camera, about movies that were geared towards kids. I mean this guy was committing fake 'suicide', because he couldn't wrap his mind around a kids movies.

The Spoony Experiment

This guy couldn't take criticism, no matter how you decorated it. I also felt like this guy viewed people on different levels. He was way up on his pedestal, and everyone else was trudging around in the mud. What made me stop watching him was his Transformers review. I believe it was the third movie.

Now don't get me wrong, I think those movies suck, but when he said that he 'looked around the theater', and realized it was all our faults, that these movies were still getting made, I had to wonder if he snuck in that theater, or if he was watching the movie for free. Also he was reviewing the movie, putting a spotlight on it! How was it our fault, but not his?

ReviewTechUSA

His constant whining about 'people' aggravated me. He dished it out, but couldn't take it.

Mike Matei

Is the last guy I'll talk about. He's another guy who can dish it out, but not take it. He's not funny either, and until AVGN decided to make his movie, this guy was in the background, or he play opposite of the nerd in certain videos. When he started making his own, they were horrible! The comedy was horrible! His videos would have done a lot better if he played it straight, and not try to be funny.

I think the worst part of all this, was the community. They ate his stuff up! If anything, people should have been more hard on this guy. He was supposed to replace the nerd for a while! This guy was his temp replacement, and he was bombing hard!



So that's all from me!
Let's see how well this thread is taken.

to be honest, I just go with the flow, I'm not that in to Youtube as I use to be, and I can end up watching random channels, but I don't over subscribe like I use to.

I somewhat follow ReviewTechUSA, his videos are a hit or miss with me though, and I agree, he does seem to have turned in to a whiny bitch over the past year, plus I disliked how he treated a fellow Youtuber a few months ago,

Boogie2988 was ok, but I disliked his kumbaya and Francis videos, I know why he makes them, but I want to see more serious video game topics, which he failed to deliver enough of, so I dropped him

AngryJoe is pretty damn good! LOVE! his video game reviews, but you literally have to beg him for them, he seems to have improved a lot lately though.

Sawer7Mage is a anime/manga reviewer, and the only reviewer of that genre I can bare to listen to, the others seems to perfectly fit the stereotype of a fat ass virgin who still lives with mommy. ( Like Forneverworld who was one of the first people I stopped following).

I've stopped following Melonie Mac she just a very hot attention whore with no definite qualities other than her boobs.

But yeah, don't really have a main channel that I follow anymore, Youtube has became crap in my opinion, it's not what it use to be, plus I hate sites like youtube that become so big they don't know what to do with them selves.

Smosh appeals to a certian demagraphic of really young 9-13 year old kids. Its something you outgrow.

I pretty much given up youtube. Atleast with following subscribers. It takes up too much time.

I only visit for music.

That Guy With The Glasses

His videos are so filled with skits with terrible actors and barely resembles a review let alone a funny review anymore. The only time I watch his new videos is when my friend says something like Dante Basco is on his new review!

Most anyone on that website is horrible to watch these days.

The only one I still can watch is Linkara. I miss Benzai he was hilarious.

Too much Minecraft. (Repetitive)

Too short videos. Also, too much Garry's Mod, Hidden, and Minecraft. (Repetitive)

The only one I can think of right now is Onision. Primarily because he personally attacked me for disagreeing with his opinion regarding a transphobic topic he posted on facebook.

I calmly approached him with my opinion, and he told me to kill myself. He's pretty immature and has no idea how to back his arguments up without throwing a fit.
