The Best of Youtube, 2021

Youtube is a bad place, but every now and then a good video appears. Because I can’t seem to stop going there, I can at least make it easier for you (and future me) to see what was worth it. Here are my favourite videos of this year.

3DS Turns 10 Years Old - Our Memories and Experiences is long, but treat it like a podcast. It’s a good rundown of my favourite video game console.’

Hi-Bit Era - The Future of Pixel Art Games. I loved this. Video games don’t have to look like they were made in 1993 anymore, but sometimes we like it when they do. Or when they look like a good version of it, anyway.

DEEP DISCOG DIVE: MF DOOM. Lots of gold in here.

Teaching Jake about the Camcorder, Jan 97. Just go in cold.

Why WarioWare Works I bought my first WarioWare game because of this.

【VTUBER DEBUT】MissFushi the Catgirl 【ふしさん】 - YouTube This video made me understand Vtubers. I followed her last year for Animal Crossing videos, and thankfully I never unfollowed her. This month, she cropped up after a few months off Youtube, but with a new aesthetic.

Instagram Models Be Like. Giggle.

What I REALLY Think of the iPhone! It’s an hour-long review of a six month phone.

ACTION BUTTON REVIEWS Tokimeki Memorial This video dropped in January but I re-watched it this month. Just a six-hour re-watch. No big deal.

Everything I know about instagram stories.. Helpful stuff about a weird photography medium.

Nihilism & Howl’s Moving Castle - Movies with Mikey. We are all burning away slowly, and everything is fine.

I bought the new Chromecast in January. It replaced my Roku Stick from 2017, which had begun glitching and slowing down. I like the Roku and thought of just replacing with another, but the Chromecast looked interesting enough to try. I like the dingus. It’s fast. I like the pink remote. The voice commands are better than anything I’ve used. And AppleTV+ just showed up today. I watched an episode of the new snoopy show. It’s cute.

I almost never watch YouTube on a computer. It’s always on TV. Sometimes I’ll watch a video as a palette cleanser between movies. Sometimes I don’t have the concentration ability to watch something real,” so I’ll go on YouTube and watch 40 minutes of trailers.

I don’t usually stop a TV show halfway through, but I abandon YouTube videos all the time. Scrolling back on the month’s history to find the few I’d like to remember, I was surprised how many were in there.

Video of the month: J.K. Rowling by Contrapoints.

Winter Anime 2021 in a Nutshell was informative as always. A History of CLAMP (and The Future of Netflix) by Beyond The Bot also gave me a lot of titles for my que.

I liked learning about fighting games that are way, way simpler than Street Fighter.

I finished The World Ends with You this month, just in time to watch a Polygon tribute video. Speaking of the 3DS, finishing TWEWY made me spend some more time with it, and I realized my backlog was big enough I could actually avoid buying the 11 Great 3DS Games Overshadowed by Switch.

Johnny Harris helped me understand the Gamestop drama.

In terms of wrestling, the best thing was probably this paid” ad from Tony Khan.

It’s good to have a guy.

I watched way too many videos about desktop PCs. This video is a pretty good example of the type of thing I watched too much of.

Definitely fell down a rabbithole of DankPods videos. I Bought a Zune in 2020 was my favourite for obvious Zune reasons.

BlogTo did an interview with Helen from TheCoffeeMonsterzCO and that led to its own rabbit hole. How I Daily Journal was a highlight.

This one’s really video-game-essay heavy. I wonder what I was distracting myself from?
