YouTube's related videos always seem to get worse and worse. Remember many years ago, when you'd actually get videos related to the stuff you were watching? If you watched a Pokémon video, you'd get Pokémon related videos (maybe even from a certain someone that had a thousand subs or so)? If you watched a Halo video, you'd get Halo related videos? Well, they're stretching the definition of "related" further and further. Zelda's a video game, Minecraft's a video game, so it's absolutely relevant! Oh, but wait, I'm not done. Turns out just about EVERYONE who watches video game stuff on YouTube gets the same five or six recommendations, and it's almost always fucking Minecraft. This "People try Minecraft for the first time" video in particular is something I think everyone here has come across many, many times in their recommendations. Yes, I know, YouTube's all about making as much dough as possible with as little effort as possible, but don't you think it'd be helpful if they went back to their old algorithm and actually gave us videos we MIGHT be interested in clicking on?
Which leads to my next point. YouTube's doing this because like it or not, the demand for Minecraft stuff is still overwhelming, to the point where any dumbass can start a channel dedicated to Minecraft and get popular, because the braindead masses just can't get enough goddamn fucking Minecraft. I could start making videos again tomorrow and make it all about Minecraft, and I'd probably get to 100k subs within a month. Think about it for a second. Think about how YouTube is oversaturated with Minecraft stuff, to the point where a hundred lifetimes wouldn't be enough to cover even a tiny fraction of that content. WELL THAT'S STILL NOT ENOUGH. The world STILL needs more Minecraft! What the hell, people? Minecraft, by all means, is one of those things that can be a nice little distraction for a while, but is expected to die off like any other fad. Well it's not dying, not even close! It's been around for five years, and there's still a frenzy around it like it was just released! What kind of appeal does this game have that requires absolutely constant attention for FIVE YEARS, and it doesn't even stop? What the hell? Even Slender died off at some point, and Five Nights at Freddy's will be lucky to be remembered by the end of the year (despite being a much better game than Slender, but that's neither here nor there)!
So as a result, the demand and offer as far as Minecraft goes is so far above and beyond every other game ever made COMBINED that, well, no wonder YouTube thinks Minecraft is the only game worth shilling! I wonder if non-gamers who never watched a gaming video in their lives also get Minecraft stuff in their so-called "related" videos? I wouldn't even be surprised, considering how game footage is the best known aspect of YouTube by far compared to everything else they offer.
