THE METAVERSE SUCKS [Versión Inglesa]



VRChat is better, and that’s what this video is secretly about. I do a bit of clickbaiting, lol

The year is 2022 (if you’re in the future just imagine I said whatever current year it is), and with the advent of VR finally being made available to the mainstream public at a reasonable price, large companies previously uninterested in this “fad” as they thought it, are now suddenly willing to invest millions into this. As a consumer this isn’t a terrible thing just yet, with the amount of money pouring into the industry we’re going to see some crazy games come out in the near future, with mechanics and gameplay completely revolutionary to the platform. The issue starts to come in the further future, once Facebook, or sorry my bad, Meta, is able to launch it’s Metaverse platform in a complete state. Not entirely because of the concept behind the metaverse, but because the metaverse is already thing you can hop on right now, and it honestly looks a lot better than whatever they’re trying to sell to us.

If you’re a normal person who decides to walk outside on a daily basis unlike myself, you might be thinking, “what the is a metaverse”, stupid. But on a more serious note the metaverse is meant to be a space inside of VR where you can host or attend a multitude of activities. Hang out with your friends, attend business meetings, and even shop. I have many issues surrounding a lot of this, but one of the biggest issues I have with this is that, this platform already exists, and it’s doing the “Metaverse” concept a lot better than this billion dollar company.

Vrchat is a completely free game on steam, and is nearly exactly what I described above. It’s a virtual space to hangout with your friends, minus the business meetings or going shopping, which might sound like a con but why would I ever want to shop in virtual reality, or attend a business meeting in virtual reality. Ok a business meeting in Vrchat would be the funniest thing in the world though. Could you imagine showing up and one of your coworkers walks in with a massive, highly detailed custom commissioned furry model with 1000 dynamic bones, and shaders that make your eyes bleed, and then just proceeds to sit down like everything is completely normal.

Now while I would normally take a minute to give a quick rundown of what happens in a game, like the gameplay, narrative, movement, anything really, I kind of lied when I said VRChat is a “game”. Like don’t get me wrong yes it’s technically “a game played by electronically manipulating images by a computer program” I don’t really view it as a game, and instead I look at it more as just, a space, or more like a collection of memories with my friends. I mentally prepare myself to get on VRChat the same way I do when I go hangout with my friends in real life. Once I’m on VRChat I can do a multitude of things, but my favorite is to kinda just people watch. Like if I’m on by myself people just start having conversations about stupid stuff around me

I could hop on VRChat right now, and it’s a guaranteed 50/50 split on whether I’d have one of the funniest nights spent at my computer in my life, or just be immediately bored out of my mind, and it’s really just down to the people you meet and where you decide to go. VRChat is separated into a bunch of worlds, that you can browse and join to hang out in. I’m not even going to sugarcoat it some of these worlds aren’t looking too hot, I won’t lie, but there are a few that look beautiful. Look, there’s even a spot for me to advertise my videos. And all of these are usually made by either a small team of people, or sometimes just one dude, and for them to genuinely look this, “cozy”, when billion dollar companies struggle to make their clothing store look even mildly inviting in a 3D space, is honestly embarrassing. Like look at this, they uploaded this and gave it this big ol’ announcement trailer with sweeping panning shots as if it actually looked good.

VRChat isn’t all hanging out though, there’s also plenty of worlds you can join that host games to play with others in VR. There’s places to UNO, connect four, minigolf, hell there’s an entire world where you can play among us in VR. The quality varies, once again these are usually made by small tight knit teams of people, or even just one person, so I won’t be too harsh, but one of the horror maps I played with some friends absolutely blew. We started with like seven people, and it was fun for a total of 5 minutes before we completely lost track of where we were supposed to go or what we were supposed to do. Eventually we managed to complete the map, 2 hours later, and not without the help of multiple different youtube playthroughs. We also may have lost all but 2 of us, me included, but we won, and that’s what really matters at the end of the day.

  1. What is the Meta ? A bad idea from a megalomaniac from someone I don't trust. Mark couldn't handle Facebook why would I trust him with a new concept of technology.

  2. It's never going to work if Facebook keeps censoring people freedom of speech

  3. finally someone understands the reality, corporate world renamed it to milk it for cach.

  4. VR = ready player one /games
    AR = tomorrowland/ The 100

  5. Meta look like the sims tbh

  6. Vr chat is no game. Its my drinking buddies and i chilling. just a social app

  7. I unsubbed when i realised youre a furry :/

  8. Man metaverse look like the sims 2 😂

  9. Vr chat is "discord"

    Meta verse is "zoom" of the virtual reality chats and ppl will use it, not because it's better, just because it's simpler and will be popular because it's made by face… meta

  10. I know i always say this, but in every video of yours your seeming like youve been sponsored, like it sounds like youve been sponsored by VRChat

  11. The metaverse it not a thing yet. Sorry to break it to you, Im not trying to shill for facebook, and vr chat is the closest and best thing we have to a metaverse, but its not a metaverse yet. It doesnt have the functionality of a metaverse. I dont think what facebook is building is gonna be a real metaverse either. The metaverse is where EVERYTHING is. A virtual place where pretty much the entire internet is embodied. You cant set out to make a metaverse, its a process and the natural evolution of the internet. We have the technology, but atm its too expensive. I personally believe that the metaverse will take shape as a company, like facebook, that owns a "metaverse" makes deals with other companies and incorporates their features into their own. What facebook is building will probably not fit the definition of a true metaverse, but it could overtime become one. It just depends on how facebook handles it, and how the community accepts it. Facebook did an AWFUL job at presenting the metaverse. They showed only the social elements, but in reality, its so much more than that. Remember the oasis from ready player one, thats a metaverse. Facebook needs to do several things before their "metaverse" becomes the true metaverse, like allowing brands to set up in it, no excessive moderation, make big deals with other comapanies, and perhaps the most important thing, make it open source. Not some ingame coding program, completely open source. The reason why the metaverse is so important is because its a world where almost everyone can do anything. When everyone, no matter their physical ability, can engage in the same activities as everyone else. Thats why you would shop their. Some people really enjoy going on shopping sprees in person with their friends, but some people cant do that due to location, transportation, or physical disabilities. So now, theres an option to do that with your friends. I dont like facebook, but they are going to have the biggest metaverse, at least at first. Sorry, this is a bit of a rant, but its something i care about a lot. Im not trying to devalue your opinion, just present what i believe makes a metaverse, and why its so much more important than many people think. Thank you for reading.

  12. Dude I only started watching your channel last night and I loooooove it. Keep up the great work… you deserve so many subs 😁😁😁

  13. Menma uzumaki aka mark Zuckerberg is losing money and going downhill/downfall and declining of failing the Facebook/meta company

  14. VRChat is a virtual hangout which can be a meme and blast with Friends, basically almost like VR Discord

    The Metaverse is a corporate attempt at making a life where the company completely controls everything you do in the style of Ready Player One.

  15. I just got suxked off in the metaverse

  16. The metaverse does not suck it looks awsome

  17. The main reason i hate Meta is because they force me to be a human and why would i wanna be a human in VR when i could be my OC, who i'm much more comfortable with?

  18. Please let it fail. People need to become more human, not more robot.

  19. You should now rename youe title to

    The Metaverse sucks ''and is dead now''

  20. Metaverse, Flash Gordon, The Jetsons, all impossibile worlds but fun to imagine.

  21. If I had the money I'd so get one of those cheap VR sets, but I a poor mofo so I can't XD

  22. If there’s anything ready player one taught me it is that this is inevitable and the people will fight back

  23. Having an internet that you can use with VR must be fully customizable by people. The same way I can go outside with what ever shoes I want or what ever clothes I want, the same way I want to create places and experiences that I can share with my friends, and allow them to do the same. All this done without the weird need to pay ONE SINGLE company for that, that is monopolistic, stupid, backwards an non-democratic.

  24. (I know that doing this does nothing but haha funny.)

    Why are you popping up on my recommended your pfp if an old meme, you talk only about trending stuff, your voice has zero reflection, you only talk down about stuff, you only agree with a argument meant if it helps you grow on youtube, and to put it out there. no I don't not like the meta verse.
