The Smartest Moron is creating Video Game Reviews Focused on Narratives

Welcome to the Patreon of The Smartest Moron! On my YouTube channel, I make it a point to analyze a video game's narrative if it is significant to talk about it, regardless if it is good or bad, and try to at least make it entertaining as well.

For my videos, I have now decided to mostly focus on the stories to ease the stress when creating videos. Gameplay will not be fully neglected however, as it's important for it to flow well with the plot too, and I plan to analyze some problems or positive aspects within that game. Just not to the large extent I did before.

Should a plot only give me certain well-done characters, I look them over with Saviors of the Tale. I have done analysis on a few characters like Selvaria Bles of Valkyria Chronicles, and Homura of Senran Kagura.

Of course, I need help in doing all of this. That is where you guys come in! Supporting my Patreon will help me out in a lot of ways, and you taking the time to read this is supporting me already. I genuinely want video game narratives to be improved upon, even in genres where others say the story doesn't matter. That's really only because there has not been enough effort put into one. I hope that one day others can learn from these videos, but I too intend to learn from what I play so that way I can better understand other games. It is my belief that every game has at least one positive element of story telling, and I intend to find that.

All except Dante's Inferno the video game. That one was just terrible. And The 3rd Birthday was even worse.

And also, I have fun seeing these stories and picking them apart. I have been busy thanks to college life, but I still intend to make the best content I can. This is a constant learning experience, and I intend to hopefully evolve out of being a moron, and truly becoming The Smartest Moron!

Also, I do have limitations as to what I can review on (at the moment):

Playstation 1 and 2, PSP, and Vita TV, and now a PS4
Xbox 360
Wii and Wii U

Note: I have the right to refuse if the content is deemed offensive or inappropriate. It's recommended you contact me beforehand to make sure the idea is sound. Unless it is offensive though, it is highly unlikely I will turn anything else away.

In addition to all the rewards on the lower levels, this level makes sure that any new game that comes out, you can guarantee a review out of me as I will focus all of my efforts to focus on these requests. Of course, I do have limits on certain games.

Note: I have a right to refuse a game if I feel it will not suit the show. Remember, I review games that have narratives in them, not just for the sake of gameplay. Be sure to contact me if you wish to be absolutely sure.

3DS capture cards are ridiculously expensive. And thanks to the New 3DS, no doubt capture card prices will rise. However, by reaching this, I should have enough to afford one of them and review games on the 3DS with ease! Help me try to review games like Shin Megami Tensei 4!
