Youtube Words Series:
Continuing with our deep dive into YouTube and the ever-growing repository of personality, we can get a better perspective of a person by looking not only at the words they use but the context of when they use them. Some content creators have put out hundreds if not thousands of videos of themselves in many different contexts already, of which we can use to gain more insight based purely on word analysis.
Reminder about Sentiment, the positive or negative emotion about a word and how they are interpreted which we touched on in the last post. It’ll be important in a bit.
And Mark has put out quite a bit himself. The above is just the amount of videos that I was able to download and parse. There were a few dozen others that couldn’t be downloaded for whatever reason, but close to 2000 videos is still a large backlog of videos to go through for anyone new to the channel and many hours for anyone who wants to binge watch his videos for (2000*10 mins /video on average) ~300 hours.
Luckily he won’t be playing the same game that often. The games that are constantly recurring are definitely on the spectrum of horror games, but there are definitely quirky or companion games that get revisited with some consistency.
But surprisingly, Mark doesn’t show as much frustration in the most reoccurring series. In fact, he has a lot of nice things to say during many of these games. A lot are in sass in response to the horror happening on screen or to console himself when his nerves are freying, but his shining personality doesn’t seem to sway that often.
The only exceptions are for games like Condemned and Lone Survivor where the language was closer to the neutral side (equals parts kind and unkind), or games like Afraid of Monsters where the sass is replaced with disdain which makes it surprising to see that he kept playing for nearly 20 episodes.
Even though Mark has played Amnesia games in the most videos, Drunk Minecraft has the most spoken words in all of the series. This can be in part due to Drunk Minecraft videos typically being on the longer side of video length and also are always accompanied by two to four people on record at a time, so filling up the word count is a bit easier.
A few of the games do have a higher word count to episode ratio, though. Five Nights at Freddy’s is definitely on the talkative side, but so is SCP Containment and Fatal Frame 2. You could attribute this to Mark being more talkative as he becomes more experienced in making videos, or that these games are more interesting to talk about.
One thing’s for sure, though. He really tries to stay on the positive side in a conversation, even when talking to his friends on his non-solo episodes.
That being said, he does say a lot of mean shit to people and in-game to himself. Actually, the ranking of these games between the number of words said versus the number of mean words said is fairly consistent, though the ratios are a bit different between them.
But I guess this graph showing percentage of words that were mean words over all words makes that more clear. 4.5% of all words in Abduction were mean words, 3.8% of all words were mean in Happy Wheels Highlights videos and so on.
Or this one showing the percentage of means words over all sentimental words. Over half of all Sentimental words in Abduction were mean words compared to the 35% in Octodad.
But even in his most frustrating of games, Mark doesn’t say that many mean words. He just doesn’t say anything nice about them, either.
That being said, he can say mean things sometimes. =.
