3:45 You can tell that life is better because everyone is on antidepressants
EDIT: P.S. – I wanted to say thanks for introducing me to Jim Sterling, who is, in fact, the man
P.P.S. – Can you talk about Dark Souls? I don’t care if you don’t have anything new. It’s just my favorite… thing… out of them all… So yeah I mean I can promise that I’ll watch it at least
For a gamer and anime fan like me, this guy it’s really a pride!

Holy shit your voice is fantastic. Time to become a voice actor.
I almost started screaming when I heard Grunty’s Lair theme from Banjo Kazooie play.
Cool but kinda surreal to see Zero Punctuation in a Philosophy Tube video
lol wtf am i looking at?
Damn, Jim, you lost a lotta weight. Don’t overdo it.
THAT THOMAS CAMEO BAHAHAHAHHA
Ha! Is Bethesda actually based in Bethesda, Maryland? I always thought that was a coincidence!
Aw, no, I googled it, it’s based in Rockville, Maryland. 🙁
Anyone care to explain why an anarchist is getting a paid advertising on a video?
I spent years spouting the libertarian party line about free markets and how only abolishing the state and transitioning into an anarcho-capitalist society would bring about peace and prosperity. Imagine my chagrin when I realized that we already live in the anarcho-capitalist paradise I’ve been pining for most of my adult life. Governments are corporations like any other, only they specialize in security provision and branch out into other industries like education and wealth redistribution insofar as economies of scope make such activities improve their ability to provide security in a fashion their constituents can tolerate.

I was eating an orange while watching this video with subtitles on. At 24:53 I read the word "loan" in advance, my fingers slipped and I dropped the orange. Loans are scary.
Jim sterling cosplay much?
tl;dr: gaming should turn people into socialists and not altright drones
and sometimes, the fellas all waiting in line all decide they can up the price together and we have no choice about it but woooo freedom
Being American, I’m used to house prices just… never rising and maintenance just drained my money anyway.
Couldn’t even sell it at low value so I just started living in the house I was renting instead.
I’m sure landlords can still be a parasite in a way, especially slumlords, but when you actually have to put money into keeping up a building because its expected of you by law or document, its hard to take seriously an accusation that I was the parasite who was making money I never actually saw any of.
People don’t talk about maintenance as if its production even though its still expensive and requires labor. Because when its done, it doesn’t always look like you’ve produced anything, because the building or bridge or whatever was already there. The crack in the slab wasn’t noticed by anyone but the person paying.
Gamers rise up
Lost a lot of weight and got a new voice jim im impressed thank god for you, now i have boglins for pogs…. in all seriousness theres no one more predatory than games industry drugs are less exploitative.
So refreshing to have an articulate, intriguing and of course politics free moment!
Honestly, the video game companies need to have gamers as investors and not people who don’t play video games in order for them to be accountable.

What is this shameless Jim Sterling rip-off in the thumbnail..
That outro song was fucking batshit good lmao
You got it backwards, Khajiit are stealthy and High Elves are proficient in the arcane arts.
commodity fetishism everywhere!
1526 Libertarians, Minarchists and Ancaps disliked the video!
You fucking mad man actually comissioned a Megalovania-Goosebumbs remix… I’m in awe of your powerlevel!
Outstanding video. Well explained. Thank you.
Blood for the algorithm, from shaking hands with the future.
I work in the game industry. I don’t play the games we make because I know how addictive they are (not in a good way). So I wouldn’t recommend anyone to play anything that takes away more than an hour a day from their life.
After watching some of Jims videos I missed earlier the algorithm was like:
"There’s no more Sterling videos left! let’s recommend him this one, the thumbnail has someone in Jims costume at least..
Well, I just found another youtube gem! Very very good job, from content over costumes to the credits: just enjoyable through and through!
Nice easter egg btw (on the map at the start there’s a town called "Ganondorf").
background music: (is from banjo kazooie)
my fucking brain, every fucking time: I AM PAINIS CUPCAKE.
Is the end theme on this a mashup of the Goosebumps TV show and Megalovania?
No black guys here
Ok no politics here move on
