It's all repeats on TV. I wish I had a crap memory sometimes.

I think i subbed in early 2010, joined forums a year later.


Kinda miss the Guv being really active with video content and loooooong video's going into every little detail of a case was just the business.

Back in 2014 I think (yep, late to the party as usual), when TTL did his H440 review which convinced me to get one.
Before then I generally only floated around in since I was always too skint to build/buy anything.

To this day this is the only forum I post on; I generally don't like putting myself out there and prefer to stay in the background. Didn't even have a Reddit account until 2017 either

I do too, but I respect that he is getting older and as you do so you can't do the things you used to do. You need rest, and you need something else to relax (cars, IIRC).

I feel bad for Tom because he was one of the pioneers on YT, yet like a lot of the early guys didn't get the success he deserved. He should have millions of subs now and be sitting on a yatch somewhere sipping champagne.

I wouldn't mind, but you have loads of people on there that know half as much as he does making millions per year. IDK.

So very true! TTL was the first tech reviewer I ever watched and the first channel on YouTube I subbed to, and I've never understood why he isn't one of the biggest channels out there, he was pioneering stuff which everyone else now does, so stuffed if I know.......

Rodney Reynolds was the OG for me.

Another guy that deserved better.

But yeah, Tom definitely took that to the next level. Rodney was a little over positive (that said if his wife were mine I'd probably love everything too ) but he did give you a very good idea of what you were getting, preventing the blind buying before.

Tom literally went over everything, screw by screw which is important for people like me.

IDK if Tom was "too honest" for the PC industry, but that got my full respect. I've had to put on my best BS sniffing nose again with the mad influx of American liars and hypocrites.

Like how Linus today teaches you how to build your own VPN and share with a buddy, but also points out that Tunnelbear and NordVPN are shady. Weren't shady when he was whoring them for revenue, eh?

I guess many reviewers treat their audience as stupid, and I guess many PC users these days are. You don't need a higher than average IQ to build a PC now.

But for those of us who are harder and got here the hard way it's hard to swallow the BS, hypocrites and stupid people making money talking bollocks and drilling holes in motherboards.

PCs used to be for nerds. Now they are all hip and God, I hate it.

Pretty boys selling pc gear ffs. And pretty girls hoping for views from spotty kids.

That's not what PCs are about. Well, it never used to be.

Ironically those are the ones making the most money. Just goes to show people don't mind bs if it's behind a pretty face.

Hopefully one day the fad will fall away, fartnite will be better on console and we can go back to the real enthusiasts.

Hoping I will use my pc more in 2020, cause I will be honest I doubt I even put 30 hours on it all 2019.

I'm definitely going to get back into pro stuff though, and playing with pro level software.

At least the dumb kids don't know what they're doing on that side of things. Plus I have many pcie lanes to use up, so challenge accepted there

Perhaps the following unkind words might help explain.

Yeah well that's probably cause Tom is honest and doesn't felate any company for views and money and he was butt hurt because Tom told it like it is

I'd say there are a lot of factors that come into play. He doesn't play the game like Linus with the clickbaitiness, doesn't go overkill on the negativity like Gamers Nexus and has an accent with plenty of Americans would find challenging to listen to.

A lot of Tom's following has a huge respect for him and hopefully OC3D can become more successful in the future. I think Tom deserves it.

Totally deserves more praise and success, i've always like his style of just chatting like a couple of mates in a bar as he put it often, and many of us liked that. Linus makes some good content but you can tell it's made like a production house, there is passion, no doubt, but it doesn't go anywhere near as in depth as Tom did.
