This next recommendation is a joint effort by Justin and Griffin, presented to you by Polygon, so you know it’s high quality stuff.
Monster Factory is difficult to explain without making it sound more stupid than it is. The basic premise is that the boys pick a game with a very forgiving character creator system and then try to break it, following the one rule of no middle sliders. By doing this they create some really horrifying looking characters that are then released into the game. This explanation is basically stripped completely from Movies with Mikey, another Youtube channel that’s worth a look. Here’s what he had to say about Monster Factory.
Sound compelling? I thought so! It’s actually a pretty wonderful experience when you get into it and the adventures of Final Pam Who Death Forgot or the Boy Mayor of Second Life is just… it’s something else. I’m invested in these monsters and the myth that is spun around them. I want more.
If you want to take a look, this is a pretty cool episode to start with.
