Gamers Educate Jimmy Kimmel

82249
Published on September 4, 2015

Jimmy recently upset the gaming community when he suggested the popular activity of watching other people play video games online is a waste of time. This resulted in an outpouring of angry comments, so Jimmy decided to sit down with popular online gamers Markiplier and MissesMae to learn the ways of the game watcher.

    Gamers like to think they’re the most oppressed people. First world
    problems at their finest. I play AND watch games and none of this made me
    want to dislike all his videos or go on rants. The backlash gives gamers a
    bad rep much more than the harmless stuff Kimmel was doing.

    Shout out to Markiplier. Personally felt that Jimmy should have watched
    various YouTubers play different games with varying levels of mastery (from
    just watching a guy play horribly to someone playing Ninja Gaiden on it’s
    hardest difficulty)…or just a bunch of people playing horror games.

    Thank you for giving a try and I’m sorry that you saw the internet’s ugly
    side. We’re trying to fix ourselves but we’re still a young and passionate
    media still figuring ourselves out, though that doesn’t excuse our
    behavior. You got some great folks to show you around the gaming scene and
    I hope you had fun. :)

    Jimmy Kimmel is one of the best late night host, he was able to bounce back
    from the backlash of his previous opinion. In my opinion as a gamer I think
    he was just poking fun at something, because you know.. He is a comedian
    after all. He didn’t need to make this video after all the disrespect he
    received but this shows his character. You go Jimmy!

    This is no surprise. Playing video games especially online gaming makes you
    an angry person. Players wishing death upon each other is just normal
    everyday conversation. Speaking from my own experience, can’t remember how
    many times I wished I could track down someone’s address to come and kill
    them. And then I realized how stupid I was after a few hours when thinking
    about all the consequences I have to deal with. I’m glad that I have
    successfully quit after I realized It does nothing good for my life except
    consuming time and making me a bad person. The bad sides of gaming are
    simply too big

    So, YouTube Gaming was announced and hyped up for its Live Streaming
    abilities now. However that is not at all what Jimmy was talking about
    since the beginning. He has been talking about just the normal videos that
    the YTers have been uploading not Live Streaming. I think this whole thing
    was a publicity stunt on YouTubes part; They wanted their name out there
    more then what it is already.

    people just can’t take a joke these days. Americans make fun of soccer all
    the time but does the rest of the world start a war because of it? no.

    Jimmy was just joking and making fun of it because it is his job. no need
    to freak out this much.

    In this video he says he’s okay with playing games but not watching others
    play…. so you’d think he’d be watching the two guest play not playing
    himself. It’s cool that he mildly attempted to acknowledge and understand
    the gaming community, but you can tell nothing has changed, he still has
    the same mindset, especially the last part of the vid

    Nothing against Jimmy Kimmel… but i wonder if when he sits to watch
    sports he realizes hes watching 2 or 3 guys watch the game and comment on
    it…

    pretty similar to watching a gamer play a game, commenting and having fun
    with it… they’re just not wearing a suit behind a desk…

    i guess its all about what one thinks is fun

    and Jimmy… don’t get cancer…

    To Jimmy and the people who think everyone hating on him is 12,

    As a gamer I not only play video games but I watch them too. There is
    nothing wrong with watching them, it’s exactly like watching sports. I also
    happen to be 17 years old playing soccer at a national level, getting good
    grades, and I have many friends. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to
    brag but the way Jimmy Kimmel and some people in the comment section
    stereotype gamers is ignorant and narrow minded. If you think we are the
    ones who are being childish, think about what you’re saying. Stereotyping a
    gamer as a angry 12 year old boy or anything suchlike is in no way
    different to insulting someone for the color of their skin or what type of
    culture they come from.

    I admit that I have lost all respect for Jimmy Kimmel but you can’t wish
    diseases or death on him, we just need to help him to understand something
    that he has no knowledge of. (And this was an absolute terrible
    demonstration of it)

    jobs/profession. So why make such a big deal about it?

    @JimmyKimmel I didnt see any apology to the gaming community in this. But I
    did want to say that they forgot to mention one important thing. People
    watch others play video games, not for the entertainment of seeing the
    game, but the entertainment of seeing their favorite streamers playing the
    game. Barely anyone would watch a game if it didnt have someone commenting
    on it, so the reason why game streaming is so big is not because of the
    games themselves, but the streamers behind the game who provide us
    entertainment.

    Its easily obvious that the previous comments that Mr. Kimmel has made
    sparked a fire under producers and writers when the reality set in that
    ratings were going to plummet due to what was originally said. This was a
    quick and cheap way for the show to try and get those offended to forgive
    Mr. Kimmel’s comments before. There is nothing genuine about this that
    changed Jimmy nor the opinion of the producers. This display was an easy
    out for network executives to purchase popularity and use it to coax the
    insulted to simply walk away from this issue. I respect both Markiplier and
    MissesMae for doing this, but unfortunately the result at the end of the
    segment only fortified that Jimmy Kimmel continues to hold his position and
    yet still fires another jab at Let’s play watchers and directly to his two
    guests. “You know what you guys should do? Try being around other humans.”
    I understand that the show needs comedy to fill in the gaps, but this is
    only reinforcing the original comment made about the Let’s Play watchers.
    But thats just my opinion.

    I usually watch games to see what they have to offer. It’s so hard to learn
    what games have to offer from what people write in 3 minute reviews and
    show in very short game play segments.

    I’ve discovered a lot of games I don’t want to play that way and a few
    games where they amazed me with what they had to offer and ended up buying
    them.

    I’d argue that all entertainment is a waste of time, and that’s exactly the
    point. It’s meant to be a distraction. Why watch a grown man interview
    celebrities? Celebrities are just people. There’s no reason to worship
    them.

    But here’s the thing, Jimmy’s show serves as a platform for his comedy, and
    if you’re interested in the celebrity he’s talking to, then that’s just a
    bonus for that episode. A let’s play is used as a comedy platform as well
    (not always, but most of the time), and if the viewer is curious about the
    game that’s being played, that’s a bonus.

    I was never angry with Jimmy in the first place because i don’t get so

    where making fun of each other was just….funny. So being a gamer myself
    and defender of Let’s Plays I found Jimmys comments to still be funny, even
    though he was making fun of something enjoy and love. At the end of the day
    we need to learn how to take a joke as a community and that will show how
    steong we really are. Gamers are always looked down upon. Thats what makes
    us different. Jimmy Kimmel keep doin your thing and being funny, and gaming
    community lets keep doing us. This situation got way out of hand. We’re

    only a part of this community are mature enough to take the joke, but if
