How do you guys feel about this? First the Game Grumps and now Oney & Company.

I think what he writes in that post is very reasonable.

Well, he's not so much selling out as just asking for a helping hand. I won't mind helping him out if he needs it.

My thoughts exactly. Usually I'm not one for watching the kind of shows that I assume Oney is referring to, but since EgoRaptor and JonTron got together for GameGrumps, I'm starting to think they're quite amusing. I guess it just depends on what the people are like and whether or not you can tolerate listening to them.

Regardless, I'd hardly consider what he's doing to be selling out. If the content is good and worth watching, I see no harm in it.

How fucking DARE he why the fuck does he need to make a little money on the side to support his hobby he's obviously a greedy fuck and should spend more time trying to please YOU instead of starting a side project in order to support himself.

Woah no way people can be sarcastic on the internet???? Try to have some common sense...

People who actually watch other people video games deserve to be taken advantage of because they're stupid. Oney would probably be one of the more tolerable YT video game people at least even if that isn't saying much.

I was being extremely sarcastic.

This guy isn't made of money. If his fans really cared about him or his work then they wouldn't get upset and call him a "sellout" just because he's trying to support his hobby which he's obviously very passionate about. That's beyond selfish.

That's why I hate the word "sellout" and general. Artists/game reviewers/whatever should be able to do what they want to do regardless of what their whiney fans demand.

I don't think of this as selling out.
As long as they don't get payed to advertize specific games.

I approve of this...mostly because Hellbenders is a blatant ripoff of his own work and he should do something more original.

So I'm guessing this means we won't be seeing any new Leo & Satan toons anytime soon?

Exactly.

Chris O'Niell has given hundreds, maybe even thousands, of people hours of free entertainment. I'd be tired of making cartoons too if I were in his shoes. If anything this is the viewers' fault for pressuring him to much to make new cartoons.

When he's not making enough videos because he has other work to do so he can afford to spend time making videos people complain that he's not working hard enough.

When he wants to make some money to fund animation by making a gaming channel, which is more content itself, you call it selling out.

Fuck off.

The guy is just trying to better fund his projects. That hardly warrants criticism.

Also, Leo and Satan is great.

Getting really sick of this "selling out" phrase being thrown around. You need to think from Oney's perspective. He even wrote it right there.


This is my signature. It is a nice signature.

First off, the term "sell out" has become completely meaningless because people started applying it to everyone who didn't want to cater exclusively to a tiny segment.

Second, Oney's always been very talented, so I'd have to give this a shot. Game Grumps is fucking awful but I didn't expect otherwise.
