I'm writing this for some reason. I'm not quite sure why I feel the need to post about it, but I do.
I haven't watched RT content actively in almost a year at this point. Why haven't I? To tell the truth, Rooster Teeth, to me, isn't what it used to be.
The people are there, sure, but they all seem... fake.
Everything RT puts out now is polished beyond originality, all their shows are made on sets, with professional cameras, lights, and makeup artists behind them.
The people of RT that I looked up to and actively enjoyed watching and listening to just seem like hollowed shells of themselves. They walk covered in makeup, professional haircare and perfectly tailored clothing and it's just not what I watched RT for. They're a business now, and it doesn't feel like a community anymore. They have an overabundance of content that I simply do not have the time to watch in full, and everything about their content and humor now is the same as everything else.
I watched RT to get away from the fakeness and simplicity of Television and the corporate world, but that's what RT is to me now.
I began watching RvB when I was 12 years old. I had watched RT and AH since then. It was my childhood and that's why it hurts so much now and why it is so hard to let go of, but I simply cannot bring myself to enjoy their content the way I used to. I'll still watch some shows, like RWBY or Day 5. I'll still check in on AH every now and then. I'll probably still participate in Extra Life. But aside from that, I don't know.
I feel I'll never find a community or anything like Rooster Teeth again. Nothing like the homey and cozy feeling I once got from watching them. Nothing will ever give the same joy as the nostalgia of old RT content. And I've tried to fight these feelings for so long because of my longtime love of RT, but it's gotten to a point where I'm just making it worse. The more I see and hear of Rooster Teeth, the more they're becoming simply another brand name, like any other business and the less I agree with their opinions and corporate decisions. (Especially with how left modern media is E:)
For Now, I think that I'm tasking a break for a while. Maybe in future I'll come to appreciate what they re now, once I fully let go of what they once were, and maybe then I'll be able to enjoy them once more. But for now, I'm going to log out for a bit, RT Community.
Umm, I need a good closing...
Bye. There that works.
