Personally I find Tb to be a grade A hack and I dont know any self-respecting individual who respects him.
Surprise surprise hes copied VideoGamers video, even some of the jokes are the same (and the ones that arent arent even remotely funny)

I thought he actually uploaded his Xbox One E3 video before Matt could get the VG one online? (in no small part due to awful internet).
They'll be lots of imitation ones and, to be fair, VG might not have been the very first to come up with the idea either.
Best thing to do with Youtube is to either not click it in the first place, denying views, or giving it a dislike.

He did beat Matt to it, but you can be sure that he has seen Matt's original one from the PS4 reveal, because ... EVERYONE has done! Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, but even so, it's a bit of a poopy thing to do. And I am in complete agreement with Doughnut as to our opinions on TB, but unfortunately find myself in the sad position of knowing people who do respect the fool.

I don't see the whole controversial points put forward in this arguement. If Apple was to release a handless mobile device, I'm sure Samsung would reply with a bite.
It's how Biscuit makes his living. He needs to keep his cotnent up to date with his target demographic, it just seems that demographic passes over to Video Gamer.
In a sense, why does Yogscraft Sjin use the same video layout as Nerd^3 when the latter has been publishing videos for years before the prior?

TB has release a new video
He also gave Matt credit for inspiration in the description, so this can be put to bed.

Holy crap the apologists in this thread! Like I said, there is no intelligent person who defends TB, as the morons in this thread have shown xD

So, you're smart by not providing evidence to backup your amazingly awesome theory? That sounds pretty stupid to me buddy.

Pretty sure Matt didnt invent the formula. Like people did silly voices over videos before. And they are different.
To summarise: WHO CARES?

I'm not really bothered whether or not TB copied Matt because even if he did copy Matt, he did a pretty crap job. I just watched TB's part two and it wasn't even remotely funny!
I just showed the Xbox Reveal Abridged video to my mates (a group of 2 guys and 3 girls who don't keep up with the gaming news etc.) and one of the girls (the least gamer-y) burst out laughing at the part where Matt goes, "Like being in the cinema, with your phone on, you prick" hahaha!
I didn't even know Videogamer.com existed until I saw that video but I'm really glad I did because there's a lot of great content on this site beyond the funny Abridged videos.
The site has a distinct English feel to it (obviously because you lot are all English who run it) and that's fantastic because I always feel like the mega-sites like GT, GS and IGN have no sense of humour. It all feels a bit matter of fact with them, but here you guys don't mind making fun of yourselves and it's amazing! Since I started coming to this site on a daily basis I've got most of my mates (about 20 in total lol) to visit the site more or less daily too and they all say the same thing - good old fashion Brit blogging that takes the piss first and asks questions later. Amazeee!
Just wanted to say keep up the good work and thanks for all the hilarious "Videogamer Analysis" sections at the end of news articles :P
