I feel so sorry for these kids.

That was the most intense, concentrated awkward I ever saw in a few minutes. Yeah, kids are awkward, but these aren't like most kids, probably not like most Minecraft fans either, my oldest nephew loves Minecraft and he's nothing like this. Fortunately...

Actually I disagree that these are not like most kids.  These probably not the popular kids or the ones who care about image or other stereotypes we see on TV but they are just average kids who probably just in an awkward point in their lives.  Most of you act as if you never encountered those awkward pre to teenage years where what was important to you probably isn’t the same for a lot of people.  Just seem like people looking down on a group like you see in grade and high school because the group of kids are not the popular bunch or care about what the popular bunch does.

 


FYI; I was one of the unpopular kids, I know the drill. I also work with youth psychiatry now, an institution for teenage boys with psycho-social problems and diagnosis. The kids in the clip remind me of the more classic Aspberger type, which isn't wrong or bad in itself, but these do not appear to be regular kids. Minecraft is very popular among those with autism and Aspberger, the meticulous and time consuming nature of it is perfect and the square, simple blocks that follows a set and logical system of behavior offer vast control in addition to creative freedom; it is the holy grail for the kids at work, out of 11 boys living there now, at least half of them are obsessed with Minecraft.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

Okay this was really hard to watch, but I don't think people should be hard on them. They're all just a bunch of goofy, awkward kids with the exception of that one guy. Plus it must have been really nerve wracking for them and speak to their idols in front of hundreds of people on a mic.  I would have been the same way, I was a nervous mess back then. 

They'll grow out of it and realise how silly their obssession was. 



Wow that is terrible. Still better than this wanker tho

I went to the Wii midnight launch that was cringe worthy never have I gone to another midnight launch.

This is just kids being kids. Perhaps some of them are a little slow.

The autism question I have no issue with, perhaps he has slight autism and is wondering if he has a future ahead of him (i.e. wanting to find someone who has it that has succeeded) or if he should hang himself.

Really not sure I see any point of Consol over PC's since Kinect, Wii and other alternative ways to play have been abandoned. 

Top 50 'most fun' game list coming soon!

 

Tell me a funny joke!

I'm on mobile and can't view the video. Can someone explain what it's about?


It's some kids asking kid questions about Minecraft. Some of them are clearly star struck by some of the people they are talking to and they're all socially awkward if you do more than chuckle at the innocence of these kids while watching it you're a bad human :<



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

I've seen the whole video. It is cringey and very awkward, but it's obvious a few have some impairments. so I can't judge them. However, the ones who were trolling the devs with some questions made me facepalm. They are kids... what else can be said?
