Yeah, I loved his pre-season 3 videos, as they provided me with some chuckles (such as Titenic, California Games, and Pokemon Bootlegs), but lately, his season 3 uploads have been going from funny to eh to funny to eh, and some videos from that season I just wouldn't watch more than once. I don't quite like the "artificial sitcom couch" set he has going there in his latest videos, but that wasn't enough to get me to stop watching. The point where he shared his ignorant views... yeah, I am unsure of watching his future videos if he doesn't step up and realize how wrong he is.

However, I will still watch his past videos (especially seasons 1 and 2) from time to time, in a "hey, I remember when he was like this and not like...THAT" type of way, as I still have very fond memories of watching them. I'm using the Disney Bootlegs video, or maybe even the last Starcade (I dunno, Season 3 is my least favorite Jon season so far), as a cutoff point because I'm sure that was the last point in time (production-wise) when he DIDN'T have those views of his (the last video I actually enjoyed was the Dark Dungeons one, a little bit later than both aforementioned "cutoff" videos, so enjoyment isn't a factor as you might think). I still remember such classic lines as "Man, 1910 times were SCARY!!", "Swood this, swood that!" "...Mario CITY SIMULATOR!!", among other sayings, which bring me smiles every time I think of them, even if the person attached to those lines is now.... yeaaahh...

Spoiler

And before you say anything like "oh, you're only watching his past videos because you are white, therefore you would be the least hurt by Jon's words!!", I'm actually half-Japanese and considered a gosei (fifth generation since my ancestors' arrival from Japan to America). Not only that, but my recently-deceased great-grandfather had to fight on the Americans' side in WWII in order to avoid going to an internment camp about half a century ago when racial discrimination against the Japanese was rampant. So Jon's words about mixed race actually did hurt me quite a lot, so this took quite some serious thinking for me to do...

Interesting.

I will say, I do kinda agree with Dunkey on the fact that even if they felt they must've removed Jon from the game, they could've been more subtle about it, maybe just an email to him and a tweet or something. They could've not even mentioned it until after the fact, but then people might've lost their shit for hiding the information. Then again, like Dunkey said, it wasn't that well known that Jon was in the game, it's not like there were swathes of people buying it just to hear his angelic voice.

Playtonic tried to be honest and upfront about it, which kind of backfired because you know how manchildren are. It had a Streisand effect, and more people who didn't even know Jon was in the game became aware and angry about his removal.

I understand their motivation for cutting him, but in their shoes, I would have just left the voice in. It's like four grunts and he voices a talking toilet in a role that was given to him way before any of this happened. No one would think the developers are Nazi sympathizers if they opted to keep that in.

I can agree with that. His Howling II video wasn't nearly as funny as The Spoony One's.

I was unaware for a long time that it was actually JonTron who ripped off PeanutButterGamer's style, I was under the assumption for years that it was the other way around. It's kind of funny because while I thought JonTron (within reason) was pretty funny and easy to watch, PeanutButterGamer is a fucking butthole and one of the unfunniest/most awkward/least likable people I've ever seen make youtube videos.

I've met PeanutButterGamer in person before via last year's Portland Retro Gaming Expo (or PRGE), and I have to disagree Jim. He was anything but an asshole. In fact, he's a pretty chill guy.

I feel the other way around, JonTron was always shit. And PBG was OK.

I mean "butthole" in the sense that he's unfunny/awkward/etc. He's JonTron but without the certain charisma/charm Jon possess. For someone who 'inspired' Jon, he's more in line with a would-be JonTron clone.

But JonTron doesn't have any charm or charisma.

Maybe you don't find him charming, but you can't deny he has a ton of charisma.

I never minded PBG, but I can only watch him in small bursts because his voice is kind of grating. Well, more than kind of. Anyway, I've been on a strict ProJared diet for the past few months, so I don't really know.
