Oh Wow. That's a Take.

It appears that the staff of the Extra Credits YouTube channel have gone mad.

Jeremy over at The Quartering has an analysis of what may be the dumbest take in quite a while on video game skins. 


Full disclosure.
We've linked to Extra Credits previously
We are sorry.
Note that back then, StargazerA5 did warn us in the comments that the Channel in question was exhibiting the initial signs of madness. 

UPDATE: Via Pixy, there's more here
Watching a movie where the bad guys win does not make you cheer real life criminals. The reason is very simple, those things are not real life. Real life is people like Andy Ngo being beat up by a bunch of masked thugs. The mainstream media and left wing activist cheering these cowards on, that will turn people into Nazis long before any video game.
I'm no longer linking directly to the video in question, it's embedded in the last link if you must see it.

1 Even more ironic, in this video they repeatedly refer to the Iron Cross as a Nazi symbol in their video.  I'm guessing they never bothered to check with their historian colleagues they partner with to put on a fairly good set of history videos.

2 Did these morons actually bleep out the words "Nazi" and "terrorist" or is that the work of the critique video you're linking?

3 Imagine what happens to you if you watch ACCA.

That's the work of the critique video: It's become 'a thing' with content creators (on the both left and right) who have been targeted by You Tube's demonetizing/ taking down videos and giving as the reason  'the word Nazi was in the video'. This policy is only enforced against  channels that have views you tube dislikes.

5 Extra Credits has always given off that vibe, to me; even when they weren't explicitly exhibiting the behavior. I watch one of their videos when someone links it for a specific point, but they have always seemed a bit off.

6 I have never watched any Extra Credits video, which probably is a good thing, given that I have enough stuff on my plate that causes my blood pressure and BS meter to rise into dangerous levels.  However, I have to say that the very first Youtube recommendation I got for an actual Extra Credit video apparently had such a mind-numbing stupid premise that I fear to click on it because stupidity might be contiguous over the electrons.
"Sexual Diversity - How a Queer Character Made Persona 4 Great" - apparently not satire.
