This movie had a really good concept, great actors and what not... but then you put in the YouTubers and that kinda ki**ed it for me. The YouTubers and Twitch streamers had nothing of value to add. No cool personalities or anything really... just a bunch of boring people making dumb comments on what was happening during the movie - and they kept using the same boring/dumb Twitch/YouTube streamers over and over again to comment on what was happening while making comments that literally someone who barely speaks English who knows nothing of video game commentary could make.

There was ONE commenter who DID add to the story, who was acting like a gamer, and that of course was someone who was basically imitating all the YouTubers and Twitch streamers only doing it in a FUNNY way that actually added something to the story. (in other words, the best commentator in the movie, wasn't even a commentator, it was the only dude they paid to ACT like a gamer and did a way better job than the actual gamers)

What I mean is...

The Twitch & YouTube streamers commentary examples: "OMG WOW!" "WOW I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS YOU GUYS!" "WHAT IS GOING ON!?"

The actor playing the role of gamer, only actually entertaining while doing it: Gets in fight with his mom, is comedically a pathetic gamer stereotype which is actually funny.

What I'm saying is, this movie would have been better with actors pretending to be streamers - because streamers are more often than not, lame as h**l and only are popular because they fit that "popular guy in school" vibe --- that popular guy in school? Often as interesting as watching mold grow in real time.

WITH THAT BEING SAID, if they featured LeafyIsHere, Nathan Barnatt or pretty much any famous actor pretending to be a streamer, that would be awesome because they would actually all be thinking "What can I say that's funny?" not "I'm here, I'm famous, where's my check" ~

Also that due who wears the sunglasses? Dr... Disrespect? He would have been great... what the heck where was he?

You just picked a bunch of pastel "cool k***s club" streamers --- vomit.

I would have been cool with Markiplier, but they didn't even pick him, why? He's all around awesome. Instead you included Jack Septic Eye? The dude who constantly drops the F-Bomb knowing primarily 10 year olds watch him? The guy whose only interesting hook is he sounds weird & exploits his cultural background in an exaggerated way for money? The rest is just obviously/dumbed down rambling filler?

Uuuuugh, F-Gen Z.
