Edit: This is way bigger than angry joe. This is EVERYONE who has a youtube channel and makes money off it. Youtube just took away the income of 1000's of people in an instant and now they are wondering how they are gonna make ends meet.

What part of having great entertainment skills and great editing skills isn't part of a real job?

Don't be one of those guys. Because you're going to get crushed for being a dumbass.

And no, I'm not a fan of Angry Joe. Don't care about him at all, but he's right.

The funny part is that now Google will be out millions and millions of dollars as well, because gaming channels are among the most popular channels on Youtube.

And if push comes to shove, these guys won't completely disappear...there's too much money to be made from doing what they do for that to happen. They'll just go somewhere else and all Google will have accomplished is cutting down on traffic to Youtube. Which only hurts themselves.

His job is a game reviewer. It's perfectly valid and it sucks that this is happening to him. Now let's players who just talk and spout stupid comments with regular footage in the background definitely deserve to not get money. Anyone could do what they do. Those people should get real jobs but actual reviewers who give information and intelligent insight into games do have real jobs and youtube needs to make that distinction.
