    I’ve definitely had conversations about how my Horror History videos may perform better when I use the words “Complete History” in the title. There could be other factors, but I wonder if this ties into the excess era stuff.

    • Demonmask says:

      I think it’s a “tag”. Youtubr has some kind of “tags” thing in their algorithm, if you put words on the description or title,it’s more possible for it to be recommended I’m other videos with those tags

    • Wither says:

      Oh, hi CZsWorld

    • Gambler Silver says:

      Itโ€™s more so because geeks like me who like listening to the history or lore of a game world is interesting and listening to complete timelines in order is cool because we can learn the before present and after of the story and then any of the extra stuff we find out like creatures and stuff we can listen to on the side once we are done

    • Lola Erak says:

      Personally, I find that using words like complete, whole, all, etc. removes all doubt that something might have been left out or is missing. All questions you have or you could potentially have will be adressed in that video and you’ll feel like everything you need to know about that subject is there.

    • I couldn't find a funny says:

      I’ll be honest I would rather turn on like 1 hour video about the complete history of something so that I feel like im getting all of the information possible, compared to just the history of movie series

  2. Katie Hable says:

    It’s nice to know that MatPat is always looking out for us with videos like these.

  3. Mugendaina says:

    NGL, I was thinking about getting off Youtube and social media because of the wealth overdrive. I’m starting my adult life and because of comparison I always felt like I’m a failure. This video helped me understand my problem. Thank you Mat!

    • Truman Badra says:

      its easy to become rich on the internet once you throw away your morals. it sucks social media always makes us compare ourselves to these soul sellers

    • Jesse Bellas says:

      Life tip: Don’t forget, it’s more expensive to live in the city.

    • 117MasterSpartan says:

      U donโ€™t have to compare yourself to themโ€ฆ.

    • Nate Sargeant says:

      Got to tech school, avoid college.

    • COW6IRL69 says:

      Same here, I had to stop creating videos because I just couldn’t get myself in that hyperactive mindset. Seeing this, I’m glad I did. I’m slow paced. I dont like feeling rushed, and my videos don’t feel like mine when I make them that way.

  4. ๐Ÿ’˜TAP BELOW๐Ÿ‘‡ says:

    I unironically want youtube to return to windows moviemaker garbage. Everything is so formulaic now that it’s hard to find anything remotely new. Hopefully whatever trend is next breaks the cycle and we get back to interesting content

  5. Boris Gord says:

    The problem I have with channels like Mr. Beast is that the pace for me is so quick that it overwhelms me and I get disconnected from the video. TheRadBrad or even Markiplier have built channels that keep a pace that is quick enough to not be boring nor fast that it hurts my head to process it

    • Kimberly Flament says:

      Exactly like how are you going to have a huge competition that costs you thousands to
      Millions of dollars and the whole video is only 10mins long.

    • NotoriousTori says:

      Love TheRadBrad!

    • klausiboy kristensen says:

      Agreed. But even Mark and the other “slow” YouTubers can’t fully escape the speed trend. They cut out a lot of the small few-second moments where nothing happens. It’s subtle, but there’s a lot of it.

    • reallyoriginalname 1 says:

      God I haven’t seen TheRadBrad in forever

    • z says:

      mrbeast’s audience includes a LOT of kids. ig that’s why the pacing is extremely fast to keep their attention for as long as possible.

  6. ๐Ÿ’˜TAP BELOW๐Ÿ‘‡ says:

    MatPat supplying us with the cold hard theories.

  7. Saul Goodman says:

    tbh when markiplier does a “youtube trend” it somehow becomes so inexiplicably insane that it’s way better than the actual trend

  8. CyanideShock says:

    Thank you for making this video. I have felt it for so long now and I don’t think I could have put it any better. I think a lot of viewers now are desperate for character development that eventually this compilation trend will create the next vlogging renaissance.

  9. Neko chan says:

    This is exactly what Iโ€™ve been feeling lately. Iโ€™m addicted to YouTube but Iโ€™m so sick of it and the repetitive ideas

    • Stratl03 says:

      The funniest thing is that this video is an example of this. There are already so many videos on this topic, we just all clicked on the theory video cause we like the brand and the algorithm fed it to us.

  10. jabber822 says:

    Man the fact that “every” videos can be viewed as just glorified Tiktok compilations kinda blew my mind. Like this weekend I found myself sucked into watching Keith eat Cheesecake Factory for the third week in a row on Try Guys and I was like “how did this become must watch content to me”? It really is that little dopamine hit that comes when he reacts to each menu item.
