While it can not always be avoided TotalBiscuit states that he tries to stay as objective as much possible. He goes out of his way to accept no gifts from developers or publishers as well as stay completely out of their social circles, as to stay as objective as possible about their products. See More
As TotalBiscuit himself will be quick to point out, TB doesn't do reviews, he mostly does first impressions. That means that the games he showcases and critiques on his channel he has not completed and so has only partial knowledge of the game. See More
Not many reviewers/critics go so in depth in a games menu as Total Biscuit does. Many games he will spend 20 minutes just in the option menu in order to show how many graphical settings there are for a game and what each one does. For those interested in how they can tweak their games this is highly informative and difficult to find elsewhere. See More
The Framerate Police is a Steam Curator channel that TotalBiscuit started as a reaction to Steam no longer listing the framerate games play at on their store. This way users can see what games play at the often considered low framerate of 30fps and then discuss if the frames can be unlocked and how. This is one in the many ways the John Bain pushes for pro-consumer ideals. See More
Yahtzee criticizes overuse of quick time events, obsession with graphical fidelity at the expense of story or gameplay, motion peripherals, yearly franchise releases, etc in many cases as hindering the advancement of interesting games. See More
Joe adds sketches, original content, and a well rounded approach to his reviews. He brings in a character that can be a little tough to swallow at times, but says out loud what most of our internal dialogues say to us already about bad games. Joe comes with a wealth of knowledge, weighs the pros and cons of each game he reviews, and tends to take an objective, yet passionate approach to gaming reviews. While the sketches aren't perfectly crafted, it's authentic in the sense that Joe loves what he does, and it shows. See More
The host has a journalism degree and follows the rules, ethics and qualities expected of a professional Journalist. When a subject is being explored, viewers are first given some prior knowledge required to understand the subject at hand. Sources and other information is also made readily available for anyone to use. See More
Worth A Buy does not cater to saying what people want to hear but says what he thinks no matter the blowback he may receive. While not always stating something many will agree with it is refreshing to hear someone unafraid to state their opinion when they know it may be unpopular. See More
Worth A Buy covers many early access and alpha/beta products as just that, products and then rviews these titles on if they are currently worth the money being asked. This can be refreshing to hear if an EA game is actually worth the current price for what is on offer instead of hearing about intended promises that may or may not make the final release. See More
If you're looking for comedy or exciting gameplay, you will not find it here. The comedy here is subtle and sporadical, but that boils down to personal opinion. Long videos are both a blessing and a curse, providing a lot of information, but some people just can't make it through. See More
Quality analysis of video games, idk what else to say really See More
If you're going to create a game, Matthew will sometimes provide behind-the-scenes stories about how a certain game was made or game mechanics worth improving or experimenting on, These videos make it seem like games are far more complex and exciting on the inside than they first appear. See More
NerdCubed's channel mostly consists of Let's Play content. While LPs can be used to get an impression of a game and NerdCubed does remark on certain characteristics of games while playing them, his channel is an entertainment channel first and a critique channel somewhere down the line. See More
While being a less popular channel may not degrade the reviews it does mean that there may be less reason to continue their job in reviewing games, so time invested in following the channel may lead to an abandoned channel at some point due to not making enough funds for the time spent reviewing games. See More
Idiotech uses Twitch streaming for games the channel is planning on reviewing. This allows users to see some of what the channel thinks of the game before a review comes out as well as see the gameplay before the full review. See More
Jim Sterling is known for stepping on toes once in a while. In 2009 he gave Assassin's Creed II a 4 our of 10 when most reviewers praised the game, he heavily criticised Peter Molyneyx, a respected industry figure, for constantly overselling and under-delivering his games and manipulating the consumers, etc. See More
While Jim is known for pointing out glaring anti-consumer behaviors there are people that feel he often chooses small targets like unknown publishers on Steam. While not always the case it does look to be a trend. Even when he chooses to voice concerns over AAA, it is often issues that many gamers have already pointed out, which leads to people believing that Jim is a bit of a echochamber repeating what he knows gamers will agree with him over. People also question why he chooses to not voice concern over corruption in games media, which plays a big role in the anti-consumerism that affects gaming. May other gaming critics have discussed this issue with the people such as Total Biscuit covering it extensively. See More
There are games so bad, that while playing them comes a point where the experience and the opinion on said game is unsalvageable. At that point one can, in good faith, review the game without finishing it. And then there are games that blow up monitors. See More
Inventors of the only truly objective review system - Crate Review System. The point you encounter a Crate in the game signifies when the developers have run out of new ideas, the longer it takes to encounter a Crate the better the game (e.g. it takes longer to encounter a Crate in Blood than it takes in Half-Life, therefore Blood is the better game game).

Their site, podcasts and Youtube channel are not earning enough to sustain themselves and have started a Patreon account in order to find more funding for their buisness. This is not reassuring that they are spending more money than they are taking in which could mean trouble in the future if Patreon does not fully support their costs. See More
