I own 5 gaming consoles and I have never owned or played Zelda or Mario.

Your Amstrad GX4000 and Apple Bandai Pippen don't count, mirth.

His top 2 games are Nintendo....really?

I guess we know who's payroll he's on.

Honestly, I don't think that's fair to say about Angry Joe. He is merciless when it comes to developers or publishers and his record of content establishes that he is not a Nintendo gamer. In fact, if you watch his review of Zelda, he says that he didn't even own a Nintendo console, but that the game is SO GOOD, that one is actually worth getting. Most of his reviews are clearly for the PC, PS4 and Xbone.

On his recommendation, I moved my Wii U to a room that I spend more time in and bought the new Zelda title. I now have two games on the Wii U...yay!

I think it's more an indication of which generation he's in than who's payroll he's on.

Entirely possible - but my personal belief is that none of these [professional] YouTubers do anything for free - especially promote games.

Heh. I do own 5 consoles now - OG Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, a Gamecube and I bought my son a Nintendo Switch for Christmas.

My son does have Mario World or some such for the Switch, but his mother got that for him.

You have me beat. I had the OG Xbox also, then an Xbox 360, but nothing since then. My son has a PS4 somewhere that he never plays, with Fallout 4 on it. I should try to get it and the TV in his room but I know that'll never fly.

^Agreed. I really admire the guy and his reviews. Reminds me of all of us.

The hand that feeds him is viewer base. His money comes from the ad revenue generated by his YT channel. I think he's very much aware of the risk he runs of alienating that base by "selling out".

^ Yeah, I can see that, too.

His whole "Corporate Commander" schtick is hilarious, though.

^ HA!

I saw DS in person once, at E3 back in 2003 when some of us WG folks went to cover it. The WG guy I was walking around with at this time had a hate-on for him and went to their booth, where we found him posing for pictures in front of huge displays about his game. The look of loathing in that guy's eyes as he looked Derek up and down...LOL. I'd totally forgotten about that, and the flamewar follies.

Battlecruiser 3000AD was WAY ahead of its time...if Derek Smart wasn't his own worst enemy, he may have been successful with the franchise. Its a real shame.
