Published on September 1, 2015

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.

    Comments just to show that not all members of the gaming community look
    bad. :(

  • Robert Machulla 3 years ago

    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

  • eropel 3 years ago

    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.

    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

  • pikukax11 3 years ago

    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.

  • Rageshaw 3 years ago

    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.

  • bbstar54 3 years ago

    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!

    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.

  • iSonikz 3 years ago

    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.

  • OlVlGv's Channel 3 years ago

    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.

  • pr0tect0r7 3 years ago

    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.

    is no different than watching regular sports. No matter what your

  • JayYTGamer 3 years ago

    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.

  • Daniel Ostrowski 3 years ago

    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.

  • LegitCyborg - Clash of Clans 3 years ago

    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!

    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.

  • Luke H 3 years ago

    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.

    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.

  • RoninRiot 3 years ago

    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.

    “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.

    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

  • jotaroxtreme 3 years ago

    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.

    calling for a formal apology and your head on a platter. You’re playing a
    dangerous game.

  • noah wayne 3 years ago

    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.

  • Ian Tusa 3 years ago

    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.

    on a stupid and ignorant video.
