  • Matpat whens the 4th theory channel gonna come out

  • I like to think the hippos line "you try to read into every little thing, and you'll end up driving yourself crazy" is Scott talking directly to Matpat and telling him to stop trying because the lore is almost impossible to solve anyway

  • I like how in the 15th tape you here the exact dialogue that you can hear glitchtrap say when he’s talking to you. Further solidifying Mats’ conclusion

  • This video came out literally 2 days after I started playing Control for the first time, so I had to speedrun through the entire game to watch this without being spoiled, only for me to forget this video's existance for a month

  • Actually in Mario and Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympics the characters do a club swinging esque event called rhythmic gymnastics. Also in the 2010 M and S Olympic Winter Games, they have Biathlon, which involves shooting a rifle. They also have a dream event called Ski shooting that involves shooting literal targets. I know it's not summer olympics but it's still useful information. It would be cool to see an analysis of the winter events since most of them require more precision and technique than simply who's faster and stronger.

  • Meliodas got recommended this

  • 4:00 i prefer to say it is the scp foundation of america only, or the part of FBI for anomalus if you kwon about groups of interest

  • Speaking of Angry Birds, maybe some theory about majority of the games being removed and if Rovio did it just for money or for test purposes

  • Imagine if Scott cawthon and Tobby fox created a very louresome game

  • The term FNaF rejects is weird because FNaF is a chunky cheese reject which is a Pizza Hut reject

  • Pansexuals: You see I'm never in games in fact people don't know I exsist

  • Wait what is the guy from brain dump doing here? 2:10

  • I honestly feel as though fnaf 1 is still the scariest game in the series. Because being in that tiny office gives you a sense of helplessness. Which in turn triggers your brain to start feeling the emotion of fear

  • Hey Matpat big fan I was wondering if you could do a theory on dispatch by Twoshoed games

  • I don't think I believe this one...

  • So let me get this straight... Mario snapped and murdered Princess Peach after Luigi and Peach had cake. Then Mario took

  • 10 7

  • Years later this is still my favorite game theory video

  • I am starting to wonder if Dawko is the one he chose to pass the torch over to. Especially to the games lore.

  • I pump the tunes of disc 11 while I’m building a giant parrot statue

  • Let’s face it, if the flash and sonic had a battle to the death, the flash would win easy

  • Okay, so for some reason……. I’m surprised he didn’t do a tomodachi life nor miitopia theory ;-; (like no joke)

  • This is the video all of our childhoods were waiting for

  • Now you have to make another video for the end of Sun and Moon, and the four seasons of Pokémon Journeys. Luckily there is only Goh, and not a bunch of teenage girls,,

  • Why did take me 6 years to notice this

  • Hay man I want a theory on dragon city and dragon land

  • I wish superhero’s with this OP set of powers actually existed

  • @Matpat /@Game Theory: you guys should do a Theory on who the strange man is in red dead redemption

  • She said that she haven't even played the game. Then why did she make the post? She is clearly lying about something.

  • Who is here is 2023

  • I'm just here to tell you your Japanese is laughably thin, and that people and Pokemon DID NOT get married. 結婚する does not mean they were married like a modern-day religious matrimony in a church. Such as, for example, Ash and Pikachu are "married" together; in that they have formed a union through bonding. It's that simple, idiots. At least you briefly include the original Japanese so we can correct you. It's actually saying: *"There was People that formed a union with Pokemon. There was Pokemon that formed a union with People."* Don't stretch this into believing Pokemon and People we're screwing. Like the Gaijin you are, you have misunderstood the grace and nuance of Japanese. I am a licensed N3 btw... and I fkin earned it. So don't @me until you learned the language.

    • They are trying to tell a story of a time when Humans and Pokemon cohabitated normally and without issues. The second passage (on the right) interprets: *Long ago, both People and Pokemon were like one and the same. It was the "normal".* (other lesser interpretations are: It was ordinary life for us. It was the normal daily routine. etc etc) It means they were VIEWED as one and the same in society. 同じ or as it is written in game as おなじ is closer to the meaning of "One in the same", NOT "congruent or identical", and it does NOT mean they were indistinguishable, idiot.

  • I typed the link, letter by letter. it was unavailable.
