    The guy didn't get depressed because of Fallout 4 or any game. He got criticized by a bunch of people because of his Nier Automata review and some of the times, criticism can just push someone over the edge if you are already feeling depressed.

    The guy can also be clinically depressed, so i doubt any game has anything to do with this.

    Right, which is essentially the same thing. Clinically depressed is something I see on forums all over the internet. I see people pining for the glory years, doing multi page essays on the destruction of whatever thing they like, spiraling down a never ending shitstorm of "This sucks, my life has lost meaning, fuck this place I am out..."

    Look at Spoony for instance. That guy lost the plot somewhere.

    If you don't see how depression can be linked to the games you aren't looking deep enough. For instance people seek release from a depressing life, they delve deep into games...what happens when the games lose meaning and that is what you invested all your life into? You struggle to find purpose, can't find it, and you either kill yourself, or run as far away from the behavior that is harming you.

    Who's to say he actually liked doing these long reviews? Maybe he did given how much effort he put into them. He also didn't do these long reviews just for Fallout, he did for Skyrim and he says right at the beginning that he's not a big fan of the Elder Scrolls series. So i doubt "watching my franchise be ruined by incompentent morons" is what made him depressed.

    Heck, he did a positive review of New Vegas and said how much he loved the game but he was already feeling depressed. So this most likely is clinical depression. Not something you can actively control.

    No, you can't control it very well. Only treat the symptoms especially if it is chronic. My whole point is people with mental illness are attracted and often obsess over games. Anyone deconstructing games on YouTube on the regular has a massive creative output that borders on ADHD. Actually you will find creatives typically have those conditions.

    That is what happens to some people. You either stick to your belief or you cave in and adopt a new personality or way of looking at things. Most learn to enjoy aspects of what they once loved that are still pure like those wacky Ghouls and them blue vault suits. Others cannot turn their brains off because things look pretty. Maybe it is a right/left brain thing. Aesthetic/gameplay perhaps.

    Its kind of sad though in my opinion. Whenever I talk to him about his old videos he gets really dodgy and stops joking around. He gets super serious. Trust me, as someone who is working on making a youtube fallout review as we speak these things take work and you begin to grow an attachment to them which is why I think he got so upset about everything. I don't think he has any mental disorder though. Maybe OCD at the worst.

    I think it has more to do with the fact that he fell into making nothing but Fallout Videos. As soon as he tried to branch outside that area, People just shat on him.
    Honestly, I was looking forward to his Planescape Review.

    If it makes you feel any better I think he may make one about that and go back to the way he was. Overtime, slowly he has been becoming more and more like he once was where he would be willing to actually respond to comments and be open with his community. I really do think eventually he will be back to the way he was.

    Honestly at this point, I wouldn't be surprised by anything. Don't expect anything, just let him do whatever.
