Jimmy responds to the people who got mad at him after he joked about YouTube Gaming, a new YouTube platform on which people can watch other people play video games.
I wasn’t happy that Jimmy didn’t bother to use Constructive Criticism Comments just to show that not all members of the gaming community look bad. :(
Bunch of loser gamers scared to leave their houses and acting tough behind a keyboard from their moms basements lol
Jimmy 1v1 me quickscope noscope, I will rek you.
lol he makes fun of some pretty logic comments
People get butthurt way too easily, I personally watch some youtube gamers and I find this shit funny af.
How. . can. . he. . . so . . . insensitive and ignorant?
Good job Jimmy kids need to get out in stead of gaming 24/7 gamers need to get a life they are losers that need to go and get there dick wet but instead they jerk off to a fucking minecraft players .
It’s fine to watch parts of stuff you’re struck on like walkthroughs, that helped me get through a lot of things and in some ways I play better myself after that, I think ppl who don’t do any of that simply think ppl spend their day being lazy and just watching other ppl play games and if they do then yes that’s stupid and pointless, but I’m pretty sure most do it to learn or for fun to just see ahead or get a sample of games that they don’t know weather or not they want to buy so watching others do it helps em decide that for them
Wow again, excuse me, this video just gave me diarrhea.
Guys, Jimmy Kimmel makes fun of everything. Calm down. I’m a gamer and I also watch streams, and I found this video funny. Don’t take it so personally.
Lol I love your videos jimmy. Haterz u can go choke on old brocolli or something
Jimmy you really come across as an old man with this. I encouraged my 8 year old to watch other players doing things in Minecrat. In turn, it peaked his curiosity about how games and mods are made. He asked me to teach him how to code and he’s currently absorbing everything we throw at him and writing his own code.. at 8! So make fun all you want gramps, times and tastes change.
Come over and watch while double dutch ruddering.
“it’s not like watching people play fantasy football” Jimmy Kimmel still doesn’t get it.
Next Comedy Routine: “Back in my day gas was only a nickle. I don’t like change.”
Jimmy kimmel is is not JUST about watching the game it is about watching entertainers play also about talking to fellow viewers from around the world and having fun. The bad side is 10% of the gameing community dont understand a joke and they go full aids on you
It’s funny with everyone hating on him… they are giving him more and more views making him money. I am sure he loves this. ha ha.
DOWN WITH THE KIMMEL AND HIS FRIEND FLUFFYGUY958
Jimmy just made a terrible situation even worse , jimmy i dare you to start your car in the morning.
He is right why watch games if you could play them? Why watch a famous person falling apart and being joked on around the whole country if you can simply do it your self? Why watch Jimmy Kimmel career if you can just go on the harbor and see a sinking ship? Why would you watch this show if you could go on the toilet and watch a piece of shit? I’ve made my point, I really hope.
Jimmy, gaming has evolved. Video games or eSports, nowadays, is like playing a chess on a computer. It has this competitive environment where people would enjoy watching it to get more ideas, tactics, strategies or whatsoever to win over an opponent. Have you ever watched a chess match, jimmy? Do you enjoy it? I guess you don’t because you can’t comprehend a game where you actually use your brain. Jimmy, you’re getting old… And stupid. Accept it.
Jimmy kimmel kind of bugs me now. I thought he was a pretty cool guy but being that he is bashing something he completely doesn’t understand, he has lost my respect. I think it is a very good correlation between watching sports and watching esports. These games get very competitive and though I only watch pros on occasion I still find it very entertaining to watch it. I play soccer as well and love watching professional soccer in the same way. Please give the gaming audience a real apology. Thanks!
OMG I love watching games but ppl really??? Kimmel’s vid is still super funny
what’s up with the beard?
Hey Jimmy, Long time gamer here. Just wanted to say thank you. I have been saying this for a long time. I will never see the appeal of watching someone play games that I my self could be playing. So thank you for pointing out how ludicrous all of this is. Oh and for everyone losing your mind over this. You are the people that give gamers a bad name. You need to learn to laugh at your self. So what if some asshole on TV doesn’t get it. Apparently you do so piss off and go watch your video games. Stop telling people you wish they get cancer or they should hang themselves. You are making the gaming community look like a bunch of mental violent sociopaths.
I thought all the people who watched streams accepted it was a waste of life by now… I don’t even understand how he got hate for this xD
I think this was more funny and more genuine than the last one which was really close minded and out of touch. But still, the point stands that you should’ve done your research before responding to the last mess.
Esports is a thing. Don’t be ignorant.
I guess he didn’t grow up with brothers, cousins or friends getting together and watching each other play videogames.
what about people watching other people talking shit / mocking what other people like to do ? isn’t that Your audience ? your concept? hope that trash mentality never gets to Europe. very instructive Television 🙂 😀 xd =) :! :=) ::) open minded people 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 You look pathetic :/ 2 times in a week. gratz.
I honestly don’t care I still love jimmy. And it’s a joke ppl come on haha
The ignorant kid that said “get cancer” just gave the gaming community a shitty reputation. Or the people that resorted to death threats and threatening his family. Like wtf is wrong with these people? I myself watch people play video games (eSports to be exact) and when I saw his vids about people watching other people play video games, I laughed. Didn’t get my ass fucked and sore for the whole day.
I think you’re very wrong about your reasoning. You say that watching people play video games is one step removed from human activity. It’s more diverse than I think you understand, and just a different way of satisfying the same needs or desires of those who enjoy watching football or any sport. Most people who watch those games, they are actually conversing in voice chat together, or the chat on the side of the actual person they are watching. Not the same as actually hanging out with people you know and see, but more diverse that these people are from all over, and likely can’t easily just walk over to each other’s house to sit and watch (which actually some people actually do). Watching any sports entertainment satisfies certain needs. You wouldn’t watch it if you didn’t enjoy it, it may satisfy instinctual needs, the desire to watch titan’s clash, or whatever. People watching these games can develop the same feeling, they have their own heroes, but instead of basing on passes, runs, yardage, they measure their heroes in strategy, cunning, the ability to deke out an opponent, not with their bodies, but their minds. They’re projecting their thoughts basically into something else that is simulated. I take somewhat of an outward perspective on this because I have watched football, all sports, and even video game competitions and championships, and I really don’t get what any of you get out of living vicariously through others. I always just wanted to either play the sports, even unprofessional, or the video game myself. Watching sports or video games can be intense and interesting some times, watching amazing plays, the highlights, everyone can enjoy that. I don’t have the attention span you all have to sit there and waste a few hours of your life watching these people in video games or sports, but then again there is likely something I do for a few hours of my time observing that people of both spectating sports of video games or sports would never do or could only find mildly interesting. I have played sports my whole life, I was in the Marine Corps and in amazing shape when I was, I have made many friends for life through sports, and even video games, and I have met many of these people I played with in real life, the first time being a paintball meet for people who played on the same server. I still have many of these friends to this day from both sides. I do have to say though, that the people I meet among video games are far more diverse in who they are than those I have played sports with or watched sports with. And to tell you the truth the video game spectators seem engaged in their thoughts and sharing them somewhat when spectating, while the sports spectators are more meditating and clearing their mind of thought to engage in enjoying the game. That being said, I really don’t get how any of you enjoy spectating e-sports or professional sports.

I thought this was hilarious but you’re still a dumbass. Watching eSports is no different than watching regular sports. No matter what your definition of it is, you can’t change the real definition.
are u dumb? why dont you go into the ring and fight brock lesnar instead of watching it at home? stop defending
My fav activity is watching people play games, but still this video is hilarious :P
Watching someone play football isn’t any different than watching someone play a video game. You watch multiple sweaty men tackle each other and throw a ball around. I watch sweaty nerds slay dragons and battle each other using mythical creatures.
I don’t see the problem.
The audience is told to clap, laugh, maybe they should clap ,laugh because he is funny? OPPS!
Wow I’m in my 30s and Jimmy is giving me old man douche chills
For a lot of these shows, the gaming is a backdrop. It’s the commentary that people watch for- and it’s only the ones with commentary that are successful. Take for example, the Game Grumps, who are hugely popular. Chances are, those 2 million subscribers aren’t watching because they want to watch riveting Sonic Adventure gameplay- they want to listen to the Game Grumps. They want to listen to two people who are talking and making jokes- you might consider them comedians.
In the same way, however many people might watch Jimmy Kimmel live not because they want to sit for an hour watching a man talk. They’re probably watching it for Jimmy Kimmel. For all gaming videos I watch, I do it because that person is entertaining, not so much because I want to watch someone complete Mario games I’ve already played to death. It’s all about the people. Yes, I might be more interested in watching one game over another, but if the commentator isn’t interesting then it’s not worth the watch.
Gaming videos like these are just as legitimate a form of entertainment as any other, and the fact that they choose to do it with gaming as a backdrop is irrelevant.
You gamers need to chill the fuck out lol…Its was COMEDY.
People get offended so easily these days its honestly hilarious.
Jimmy – dislikes and made comments come from 15y olds so just ignored 🙂 You are absolutely right!
He picks the comments that are super ignorant from 8 year olds. Honestly, watching video games IS the same as watching sports. When you watch football you are watching a team of people play a game. When I watch video games I’m watching 1 or more people play a game! There’s no difference. Hell, some of the esports players make more than football players!
like watching fox news pouring over rap lyrics, freaking retard…
What a fucktard, I used to like you Jim…Used to.
My balls are aching maybe they wanna smell you
1v1 me scrub
“making fun of things is much easier when you know what you are talking about”
10k dislikes= virgin losers
Someone link him Totalbiscuit’s explanation. A clear, calm man who seriously gets the point.
I like how this guy gets to disrespect people who watch others online. When he gets payed because people watch him online. If he thinks he is so smart why doesn’t he go make a youtube or twitch channel and make gaming videos. Then we will see how stupid he thinks it is when he is making bank off the same idea. Hell why watch jimmy when we could all just go be jimmy. I bet he wouldn’t be making fun of it if he didn’t have a audience there eating out of the palm of his hand. I swear comedians like him are just like those annoying 12 year olds that have their “clique” that think everything they do is badass.
yes i finally have a reason to invite jimmy over to my house why do people care if he thinks its dumb its his opinion not anybody elses
Wow, really ashamed I’m part of the gaming community right now… I love video games and I also like watching people play video games . But that doesn’t mean other people can’t think it’s weird and make jokes about it. People really are shit if they attack Jimmy Kimmel for this…
You know a large portion of your fan base are youngsters who play games right? you just lost a WHOLE lot of fans my friend … nice move
Am gamer but Kimmel too funny reciting those comments bwahahaha
Jimmy hasn’t got one fucking clue what hes talking about… this is incredible… i just keep replaying this video in amazement
So I didn’t see the other video but this one’s not great. He’s missing the point. Fantasy football is a completely different type of game, not a watchable one. To be honest, he’s right that it’s not like watching actual football. Video games are continuous, faster pace, and more entertaining. Personally, I only watch people play video games if they’re doing some comedic commentary on top of it (when I actually like their comedy). Jimmy Kimmel is sometimes funny, so as a sometimes comedian he should understand why people like comedy.
Ignorant. All i’m saying.
How is watching someone stream ‘one step more removed’ than watching someone playing a sport? If anything it is less removed, when watching a gaming stream you are often able to interact with the person you are watching.
Nearly 11,000 losers downvoted this. Keep up the good work, Jimmy.
Jimmy just go get cancer for me you fucking bearded lumberjack
Not gonna lie, I like to watch gaming videos and streams, but goddamn it’s almost too funny to see people lose their shit because one guy said something they don’t agree with
LMAO, you guys are hilarious. I’m a part of the youth, I watch “Let’s plays” all the time, I play video games all the time, but I can tell you, video games are not a true sport, just like chess isn’t a true sport. If no physical activity is required, it is not a sport. Watching people play video games actually is kinda dumb, but so is a lot of stuff humanity is into nowadays, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Just accept it.
It’s all on how you’re entertained, which I found odd that he didn’t understand since he is supposed to entertain.
Yea of course out of the 11772 comments you just had to cherry pick the few single idiotic comments you get on EVERY video instead of the numerous top rated balanced and sensible comments didn’t you jimmy? Typical American media choosing to show only what is convenient and the many thousands more idiots who would blindly lap it up
You guys are pathetic. Watching people play video games is about the laziest, most brain dead thing you could do.
I love you buttcrack Kimmelzzzzzzzz
Doesn’t he understand that games are insanely complex and competitive nowadays? He thinks we’re all here watching a guy play pacman
This whole situation has made me like Kimmel even more.
Making jabs about something you don’t understand, sure whatever. It can be funny. However, setting yourself above gamers simply because you don’t understand it, where is the logic in that? “If I was in the NBA I would go play basketball.” If I was in the LCS I would go play too. You’re not in the NBA and I’m not a pro at LoL. Just as you enjoy watching the skills and abilities of the pro players, I enjoy doing the same. Just as people like watching you for your personality and reactions, gamers watch other people play games for the same reason. Surely that is a comparison you can understand, but I guess I just need to “go outside and play.” I can’t fathom how people actually believe that ridiculous stigma. I hope after reading many worthy comments that address the issue appropriately (and not just chosing ones that wish death upon you) you might understand the comparisons between your hobbies and ours.
Lmao still talking shit, KYS you irrelevant bitch boy.
Am i the only who understands Kimmel is a comedian. This whole issue is just making the gaming/streaming community look bad. Its a fucking joke, not a dick stop taking it so hard.
You’re just trying to be relevant try harder Jimmy
Jimmy Kimmel looking like a mess nowadays
“Video Game Watchers Are Mad at Jimmy Kimmel”
Proof is in the video downvotes. The upvote:downvote ratio doesn’t reflect the quality of the video, it just shows how mad you people are.
Kimmel makes fun of EVERYTHING but gamers are the only ones to take offense. I watch Dota 2 on Twitch almost every day but I wouldn’t dream of being so butthurt at Kimmel’s videos.
Y’all need to relax.
Did he pick the worst ones or are these kids this stupid?
imagine getting angry at a professional comedian because he made a joke about stinky gamers, you would think for people who care so much about entertainment that they would understand how it works, this is his job let him do it, he is supposed to make the average midnight couch potato giggle and im pretty sure he’s doing just that, coming from 1 stinky nerd to the thousands of you, relax and let the man do his job.
Lets play is pretty gay though, so he does have a point.
Real nice if you to only show the immature comments in order to make more of a joke outta them. Nice mooove dick.
Jimmy, you’re not going to win this war……..
God you’re such an ignorant cunt
I disagree with jimmy completely but some of these responses is just embarrassing. Telling people to die bc of an opinion is the reason our community is laughed at in the first place.
Honestly, I know the previous video was supposed to be comedy but I really just found it ignorant and douchey. This video however, doesn’t just put that ignorance on display and show a severe lack of knowledge, it comes off as rude and disrespectful.
Here’s the deal, if you haven’t touched a game in the past 15 years, sure, you’re probably not going to understand the appeal. If you’re talking about arcade machines and when you were young, that’s a very different time and a very different culture. Gaming these days is the largest and most profitable entertainment industry by a long shot. Gaming has expanded well beyond the image of “kids” playing games from 20 years ago and is a mainstay of modern society *globally*. Gamers and people who play games in general also make up a very large portion of your audience.
As to why people watch games, it can be for a variety of reasons. Some can’t buy a game for a variety of reasons (such as those who are deployed) and will choose to watch instead until they can. Some want to see the game in action before they buy so they know they’re not wasting their money. Others find it to be just another form of entertainment like watching TV shows or listening to radio shows, so when they can’t play, they watch. Then there’s some who like to interact with others who like the things they like, which can be said about any and all interests.
There’s many, many reasons why people watch. I’ll say this, to wrap it up, yes I know you’re a comedian, but you shouldn’t poke fun at an entire culture without a basic knowledge of that culture. When you do the comedy that way, it really just comes off as douchey and rubs people the wrong way, regardless of what the topic is about.
I’m a gamer and you are just fucking FUNNY!!!! And you are right about everything, I play videogames but I do sports and gym, I know some people just sit 18hours per day just playing and wathing videogames, and thats all the people saying that to you. Love you bro!.
why do u watch other people play sports instead of playing for your self…bitch.
the only difference between the ones they watch football game and the ones they watch video games is the one watching video game is actually playing that game, many people watch other people playing games is because they need some walkthough in-game others me include prefer to watch gameplay so i can decide if i should buy it or not. i hope this will answered your question, before u talk about something u should atleast do some research so u can have a better understanding
Does he even play video games? In what ways does his opinion count for anything?
Jimmy, you literally just offended millions of people to make a couple hundred thousand laugh for only a few minutes. SO many people are already calling for a formal apology and your head on a platter. You’re playing a dangerous game.
He still doesn’t get it. I’ll preface this by saying I don’t typically enjoy watching other people play video games – except for the EVO tournament which can be fun.
It really isn’t different than watching professional sports. Have you ever been to an NFL game or watched one in a bar? It is mostly out of shape guys chugging beer and wolfing down nachos. Some of these grown men are wearing jerseys with other grown men’s names on the back. The same applies to MLB, NBA, etc. Is that somehow socially acceptable? That doesn’t seem like anything to brag about.
I enjoy the NBA, college football, and to some extent the NFL – but just because those are athletic activities I’m watching doesn’t confer some sort of “active” lifestyle on to me. You could easily tell a football fan to stop wasting their weekends by watching college football/NFL and go outside. You could apply that to any form of media – why watch anything when you could go outside and do something.
He just sounds ignorant.
I understand the joke, that’s fine. This however is purely infantile, Jimmy Kimmel is judging people for something he knows nothing about. He can’t even understand the most simple of analogies. It’s sad to have to do this but this is where I unsub. The attitude, ignorance, and bigotry against others is something I won’t support. this is no longer a joke but his true feelings. Shameful really.
Yes, socializing and identifying with people who have the same interests as you is ridiculous
Upsets thousands of people then continues to make fun of them. Truly an idiot.
LOVE YOU JIMMY!
Not going to lie the youtube gamer video you made was stupid not because it was making fun of gamers (I’m a gamer and I upload to youtube) it was stupid because it wasn’t anywhere near as good as some of the other stuff you do on the show Jimmy. This video is great because I love how people get so butt hurt over dumb things…. Oh and some gamers on youtube post videos where they read their comments and you just did this…. Welcome to youtube Jimmy, you are now one of us. lol
why ur tags say jimmy fallon, colbert, stephen colbert,?
Wow, he picked all of the worst comments and none of the ones that were actually trying to help him understand why people watch others play video games. He also made fun of the grammar in everyone’s comments. No one is going to waste time making sure they have a grammatically correct sentence on a stupid and ignorant video.
