My options and thoughts are my own, however it just so happens that some of these YouTubers say exactly what I am thinking and it's just easier to send a link, YouTubers like Favyn actually use logic and reason as well as facts to back up their arguments, while others avoid anything negative about Halo altogether. All I'm saying is that I have heard very few good arguments for a lot of the things I dislike in 343s games and the ones I have heard can be disproven or fixed easily using facts, logic, and reason.Comedic Hermit wrote:I've come to the conclusion that a lot of people don't think for themselves.

For some reason I fail to grasp some people on the forums treat these guys as authorities.RedMangabey wrote:I did not have an opinion on The Month of Mythic, since I watched some Halo youtubers and heard their opinions.
And I think I am not the only one who does that, this week, for example I have seen a lot of people linking videos of Halo youtubers as a base reference for their opinions.
My question is: are we getting too much influenced by Halo youtubers? Are we giving them too much power?
What I mean is that they reflect some of the community opinions, which is great in some extent, but I have seen on the comment section in their videos things like "agreed 100%, 343 is killing halo" or "Halo 5 is bad in all aspects" or even "let's flame waypoint now!", and that is what bothers me so much. People just agree with them without criticizing when they are just hating, when they say the Storm Rifle is bad because it do not seems to fire plasma shots (which it isn't true) or Halo 5 is bad because it hasn't blood anymore or "people left Halo 5 because it doesn't appeal to a military shooter audience anymore".
This kind of argument is creating too much radical opinions here on Halo Waypoint and I think it is bad. We should just analyse criticaly when they are talking things that makes sense and when they aren't.
And you, what you think about this?

Are we getting too much influenced by Youtubers?
