Quoted from crobby:
Hey guys, thanks for all the content you provide. I've enjoyed some coverage of some games that don't always get a lot of coverage (P3). One question/comment: Is there any consideration to perhaps clean up some of the language, especially since you're "out there" representing many sponsors? I was watching the Heist stream with my son and he was really into it, but I had to tap out because at one point the only commentary seemed to be strings of profanity. I totally get that there are moments where pinball makes us all let a few things fly, but excessive amounts don't really add anything positive to the otherwise great content that you're putting out there. You are clearly well-spoken, smart folks and have a lot of great thoughts and passion for pinball, but it gets muddled a bit (at least to me) with all the unnecessary language. Just my thoughts. Thanks again for the great content.
Hey, thanks for watching and the kind words.
I hear what you're saying, and I get it. And I want to at least offer you a solid reply and insight into our approach:
We started this way back in January 2015. At the time our goal was two-fold: 1) Help people to understand pinball and share our games 2) Authentically share the group dynamic that exists between adult friends. The latter is important here: We're not trying to be a show for everyone. We're adults, putting out adult content, authentically. If you were to hang out with our group and play pinball, what you see is what you get. We don't put on fake personas to entertain. And this is what I love about our content and think that many other people do as well (although, of course, not everyone, which is not our goal).
Given that this is something we do out of passion and fun, it's personally enjoyable just to "be myself", which, includes at times, cursing. In no way is our show marketed for kids. We don't curse just to curse, but we showcase adult friends hanging out and playing pinball.
Thankfully, there's so many more options regarding pinball streamers than there was in 2015. There's so many more "family friendly" choices out there compared to us, which I think is great. We've hit a point in pinball content where there is pretty much a channel for everyone.
Hope that makes sense, thanks for watching. -Nick
