    Just like game devs, these game "essayist" seem to think that padding something unnecessarily for more content is a good thing. Or they are autists who are obsessed about the idea of saying everything in a single video.

      The point of videos like these are to operate as friend simulators because zoomers are friendless losers.

        This. The Internet has allowed loners to make "friends" online and the mildly famous people online are accessible and will respond to them causing positive reinforcement. That's also why so many people pay money on Twitch and Patreon. It's a friend simulator. Once upon a time, loners we're at least forced to make a few friends at school. But that's not even necessary now.

    Why can’t we just find a middle ground between tiktok/youtube shorts and 4 hour video essays?

    I don't, but I enjoy hours long videos about weird stuff because it's nice to put on my tv as background noise I can tune into occasionally.
    Here is example from one of my favorite Youtubers

      I'm only 90 minutes into this one (and have had the same criticism of his previous videos) but this is not the case, goes straight for the throat.

    It is second-screen content. If you think people actually give these their full attention rather than having it on in the background while they doomscroll or game then you fundamentally don't understand modern media.

    Why do they call them "essays" when there's no actual formal discussion or analysis? They just recap the game or movie or TV show really slowly.

    Really all you need to say is “they spent money on diversity reworking by Sweet Baby Inc instead of fixing the bugs” and your video essay is done.

    Little Platoon and Despot of Antrim go hard though.
    Little Platoon’s takedowns of Rings of Power and Star Trek Discovery are six or seven hours each of pure unrelenting savagery.

    >complaining about people making things that are analytical, labor-intensive and released completely for free
    I mean, I could understand if every single one of these things in this general category were that long AND somehow were ~100% "padding" rather than any actual analysis or anything that justified their length, but I somehow doubt that is the case.
    All things considered, this seems like a really pointless thing to complain about people doing.

    Starved for decent teachers. Video Anal-lysts are ten thousand times better at talking about things than frickass normie teachers are these days. Also, it's nice to listen to interesting background info on something you're interested in without nogs acting up all around you, because they were all born with bees in their buttholes.
