Adding to this. (Gaming)

I don’t necessarily have problem with it being mean. Yeah, it sort of sucks when stuff is mean, but lots of valuable criticism could be seen as mean.

The bigger problem is this video does nothing. It’s not really criticism, it’s certainly not saying anything new, and I wouldn’t say it’s valuable or adds anything to the discourse.

I’ve said my fair share of mean things around here that weren’t valuable. I know what it is to feel slighted somehow by a video game I once loved. Maybe this video is the equivalent of one of those posts—a sort of fire and forget, now I feel better for having said it. But I can’t imagine spending enough time to edit a full video for seemingly no reason.

Criticism is as mean as you want it to be. Crowbcat wants to be mean because he's a jerk who only tears people down.
