  1. Well fuck you too then. I had though, perhaps, I wasn’t clear so I elaborated, yet again you dismiss my thoughts because “minority opinion doesn’t matter.” Any dissent you dismiss from discussion – might as well lock the comments. You aren’t willing to discuss things yet you were quick to jump on my off hand remark. So fine I will leave you to high horse and let you remain in your fantasy-land where the music fits and you didn’t just parrot the composition/editing from other penny4nasa videos.

  2. I apologize I didn’t mean to make such a fuss. When I say “it doesn’t seem to fit” I am basing my opinion on the music itself not any sort of influence form the game. Lets analyze for a second. The base of this song is a slow meandering chord progression, very simple and slow, meant to be epic but falls short. The second main part is the one or two upper range lines repeated. Then we have this loud comical “BRR” which cuts any sort of mood in a cartoonist effect. It just doesn’t fit (imho)

  3. Of course not. All I’m saying is, the majority of the people who will watch this video do not bring with them the baggage of knowing the music and where it comes from. For them, there is no such negative reaction. Only gamers–and it should be noted, not even all of them to be sure–who recognize it, are those for whom it might be a problem. As such, only a minority are bothered because only a minority even know.

  4. Yes because the general consensus should determine my opinion. Musically it doesn’t fit with the theme of the video. This is my view. I shouldn’t need to preface every comment I make with [WARNING WARNING OPINION INSIDE]. Also your evaluation of the “vast majority’s” thoughts on the matter seems skewed by your own opinion.

  5. It’s only out of place if you recognize it and have an inability to separate it from its source material. That is a problem the vast majority of viewers do not have.
