Evolution of A Weird Trend in Youtube

The other day Youtube recommended a video to me, Evolution of Deleting Save Files in Kirby Games.

Well, weird, but as it’s not something many people do, it’s nice there’s a video even though it’s probably really boring.

Later I was recommended a video, Evolution of Deleting Save Files in Kirby Games.

It was by a different account.

There are no fewer than FOUR videos dedicated to that concept. Not only that, they are ALL in the same format: Evolution of [blank] in [blank] games. Where did this format of videos come from, and more importantly, WHY ARE THEY ALL NAMED THE SAME? And they were all released within several days of each other!

I seem to recall this format starting a while ago, but generally with something pretty straightforward, generally boss battles I think. “Evolution of [this boss] in [these games]”. There you can show the boss battle, then move on. But now we’re getting “Evolution of the Butterfly in Kirby Games” and it’s like… why do you even need to format the title like that? Can’t it just be like, “the butterfly’s appearances in kirby games” or “the butterfly keeps appearing in kirby, CONSPIRACY!!” Yes I am recommending people put conspiracy int their titles instead of evolution. I don’t know.

Do a search for “Evolution of * in * games” and what do you get?

Evolution of Final Attacks in Kirby games ᴴᴰ (2011 – 2018)
Evolution of Final Boss Deaths in Kirby Games (1992-2018)
Evolution of Final Bosses in Kirby Games (1992-2018)
Evolution of Spider-Man Games 1982-2018
Evolution of Rick in Kirby Games (1995 – 2018)
Evolution of Kine in Kirby Games (1995 – 2018)
Evolution of Coo in Kirby Games (1995 – 2018)

You can’t just like… Rick throughout Kirby games? Rick from Kirby? No? You have to copy? This is the new Let’s Play, isn’t it? And not only that, but what does Evolution of Rick in Kirby Games even entail?? It just… shows… footage of Rick. That’s it. That’s just. I don’t get it. This is so weird now. I suppose on this side of my considerations you could argue that some people might be looking up videos specifically to check something, maybe they’re writing or drawing fan stuff with Rick and want to see everthing, so that’s fine, in the end.

BUT CAN’T YOU CALL IT “HISTORY OF RICK IN KIRBY GAMES”?? EVOLUTION DOESN’T EVEN MAKE SENSE HERE. You’re blatantly copying the first person to use what is arguably a terrible title!

I don’t know why I’m yelling, it’s not that big a deal.
