Is he playing dumb or should I have changed the design? I react to Pewdiepie playing the game I designed, LEGO Star Wars. (See HIS reaction post in the comments below)


Meme Insider : YOU created LEGO STAR WARS? You are the King.

Paulo Jr. : The guy who made LEGO Star Wars is part of the 9 years old army? That was a surprise, to be sure, but a welcome one.

RickToons : The fact that you designed LEGO Star Wars, helping to basically cementing the Lego game series core mechanics is pretty incredible. I can't wait to see what else you do!

Nathan Glover : "PewDiePie would be a great play tester, highlighting all the bits 9 year Olds would get stuck on" Oof!

whiz 85 : "...and all the bits nine-year-olds would get stuck on." I don't know if that was even a joke or not, but I still laughed.


Pepsi Man : "Is he an idiot, is he playing dumb?" Like any true fence sitter, I think the answer is somewhere in the middle.

Camo 64 : Well, to be fair on the bit of finding the first level, he’s playing THE COMPLETE SAGA version rather than the ORIGINAL Lego Star Wars game. If I recall correctly, when you boot up the ORIGINAL game for the first time, the camera pans towards the episode 1 door. Most people playing TCS would have already played the original game and would have already known how the level doors work. It probably would have helped to have a similar camera pan in TCS though

GMMReviews : *NO.* Something I can't stand these days is messages, and "hints" popping up every 4 seconds to tell me how to play the game. Let me figure it out. Having a big button prompt reminds me I'm playing a video game, and kills my immersion. Pewdiepie was clearly just goofing around with his friend here. This seemed more like a skit than a lets play. Don't change your design philosophy because some famous YouTuber, and his friend dressed in drag didn't hit the right button, because he was using a keyboard, and wasn't paying attention. I bought the first Lego Star Wars on release day when I was 10 years old. My friends came round to my house, and we had a blast playing it. We didn't have any problems figuring out what to do, or what buttons to press. I love these games, and I love your channel. If you read this, I must ask, do you still make games? Other than your 'director's cut' version of your older games?

Drek Is KrEk : I mean, I beat all of these no problem when I was six so....

Dantastic : He's goofing off with a friend for the camera. I had little to no problem figuring out what he was having issues with, and I was using the PC Version. I got lost in one of the Degobah levels but eventually figured it out. Spoonfeeding people what to do is frustrating, but not as much as time-based button mashing during "interactive cutscenes... or more commonly.. quicktime events, which i loathe.

Tealgamemaster : This channel is the gift that keeps on giving.

Nitro Rad : This was incredibly fascinating. Hearing a developer react to somebody playing their game and explaining their perspective from a design viewpoint, and considering what they could have done differently accordingly. I would love to see you do this again with people playing your other games!

Amber : You don't understand how unique it is to follow a developer that developed a ton of your childhood games and watching them review someone's gameplay footage for design flaws.

Coded _Ragon : I don't watch pewdiepie anymore for personal reasons. But I would gladly watch you watch pewdiepie play a game while talking about said interactions with said games.

Kev's Channel : you designed the lego starwars games? needless to say, your a legend

yan shooter defron't : The game was 9 years old proof but apparently isn't pewdiepie proof Jokes aside is funny how some quality of life changes that happens in sequels of a game or in updates works, even a small feature like a button to organize the inventory that sees minor but when you play a outdated version and this don't have this "minor feature" you feel lost and confused

Itch-HeSay : I sometimes forget that Pewdiepie was originally a gaming channel

Linn FTW : I'm certain that the Wii version of Complete Saga had button prompts.

gNightrow : Working out What to do Withought Prompts are Part of the Fun otherwise it is too easy, this is why People Joked about the Cuphead Game Jurnasist.

Clickbait37 : you own my childhood.

Wolf. : Lego Star Wars Complete Saga on DS was a huge part of my childhood and I'm currently playing the Xbox 360 version. It appears there is no Grievous Wheel Bike minigame on console, which is a shame.

Firstname Lastname : "You've been asking me for months to play this game" >Plays for about 5 minutes, can't even figure out how to start the first level Totally worth the wait

Bomb Bro The Plush : The ds version is super buggy after a while I managed to get ships in hub lol Although this game was my think when I was younger (Original trilogy)

EverestBC : When I was seven I figured it out and it was my first game aside from mario cart. He’s definitely an idiot

moabpanda01 : Hold made this game? Thanks for the childhood!👏👏👏

GLeeM : Wait... YOU made Lego Star Wars? Holy shit, The Complete Saga is legitimately my favorite video game of all time

Seymour Krelborn : I used to play this!

Vorname Nachname : You mess up the game... when i was a child, 1 Minute on the wii and i was in the 1 Level. After some time i buy that game for PC too and i never came in Level 1 ; (

Rei Bob : This channel keeps on leaving me in awe. You're awesome man. I loved following the revamp of Sonic 3D (blast)

distant-p : The gamedesign is great! There is nothing wrong with it. The first time I played it I understood everything. But maybe that‘s because I was playing on iOS.

Reviewer Guy : Damn... 7 year old me figured this stuff all by himself, with no internet...

The xbox JEDi : What are your thoughts on the new LEGO Star Wars game just announced

bossome : Man dude your game 100% was the first game i ever played and my child i just want to say thank you

Jdog : This is amazing, I subscribed to you man! I love the Lego Star Wars Games!

S T Ξ Λ L T H : Thank you for your service Lego Starwars is fantastic

ChristianGirl666 : Thank you for literally making the game that defines my childhood.

Unchallenged Mediocrity : Proof that modern professional YouTubers are dumber than 2007 nine year olds.

Qwerrb 7 : Yo ima huge fan of LEGO Star Wars I used to play it when I was a kid, thanks for creating so many memories and hours of fun for me

Ed Onslow : YouTube personality: I suck at this game! British person: (Hugh Grant voice) Oh no, not at all I must have made the game bad, let me make it again!

Game Sack : This is eye-opening to me. It really is interesting to realize the different perspectives that devs and reviewers and also just regular people all have of the same game. You're seeing someone play through it the first time and getting ideas about button prompts, etc. And how going through that door isn't as obvious as it seems. As a reviewer I'm always like "How am I supposed to know how to do THAT?!!" and now I know, thanks to this video. You've done it hundreds of times making it... how could you NOT know? However I think this is why some indie games are crazy-stupid difficult. The designer finds it easy because he or she is building it and knows exactly what to do, so they keep making it tougher and tougher until THEY are challenged because otherwise they think it's too easy. That way there's no gradual curve in difficulty. Makes me realize how hard making a game that has a good difficulty curve must be.

VanityManatee : I love LEGO Star Wars :)

Sonicfalcon16 : Might be just the keyboard. Trying to find the right button for stuff might just be easier with a game controller. I dont know about having people like pewdiepie Or game grumps as testers for games. I've seen grump videos where they outright ignore hints However I would find it funny to have a difficultly choice called Grump or new player mode when no progress is made.

Failingpepper 11 : I love this game I played it when I was 6 to 7 and completed everything in the game but first I read the manual

Silent : Omg you created them? I love you! You're the man that created my childhood.❤️❤️

The Progenitor : Kids react to GameHut reacts to Pewdiepie reacting to the game Lego Star Wars

sendhelpidfk : Wait, you designed this game? If so, I may or may not have activated every score multiplier cheat on the Wii version.
