I'm not talking about being happy that the game is broken or bad.
That's a very different thing.
For example, I had no interest in ever playing Balan Wonderworld before it launched. Even if it had turned out to be a good game, there are so many good games to play that I'd probably never get to it.
However, I think Dunkey's video on it is genuinely entertaining, and worth watching.
So I got some value out of its existance.
Same with the Cyberpunk bug compilations and memes.
Or recently, SkillUp's review of Redfall, which I think is a highly entertaining watch.
I don't hope for games to be terrible, because at best it's just a bit of potential entertainment for me, which I can easily get elsewhere.
A lot of people worked hard on these games for years, hoping that players would enjoy playing them.
They may even lose their job, even though it wasn't their decision to launch it unfinished.
And that's where I can feel a bit guilty for finding these kind of videos entertaining.Last edited by Hiku - on 09 May 2023
