Ludwig not knowing the trends of these years is why he rated some lower than they should've. People who were watching daily life and challenges YouTubers since like 2012 know nearly everyone for the next few Rewind years. I think Lud just had a skewed perspective due to him being more on gaming youtube than anywhere else. For example: He said “KSI!” when I said “Caspar Lee & KSI!” He said “Pewdiepie!” when I said “Zoella & Pewds!”

HAHHA I agree lol idk but it felt like he kinda put off a lot of the music n remixes at the start but in truth, they are deservedly there bc they make up a huge majority of yt's viewer count (i.e. cringing at Harlem/frozen- which is agreeable but you have to admit it was still prominent/the song itself being one of the leading trends on yt at the time) You can kinda tell which years lud was more active on youtube in LOL e.g. his reaction to @7:10 and then @14:35 to equally "cringe" content but yeah, a lot of the points & justification he made was good ^^ I can smell a little bit of bias tho lol

Not really. He was accurate that after 2012, it was clear YouTube wanted to go another way, and that was through going corporate. I recognized a ton of people in 2012, gaming or otherwise (I recognized Jenna Marbles and she didn't game at ALL) - YouTube 2013 they went to some third party production studio instead of doing it in-house and with it came the beginning of the end and the corporatization of YouTube. Like another commentor in another thread said, corporation creep was taking place, and this ran in parallel with other social media platforms turning into monopolies as well and the proliferation of the new wave of culture that demands things be sanitized, toned down, and made "accommodating" for imaginary minority groups. The unholy alliance between soulless corporations and whatever this modern culture has turned into plus YouTube basically being a shill for the government the past two years has made this site a husk of what it was.

2020 was the year of what I call the "Duration Chasm" where videos became either 30 second shitposts or half an hour to 3hr essay length pieces about extremely niche subjects and there is no in between. The ten minute video is dead, videos now take up a full day to listen to and theyre not afraid to go balls to the wall. 2hrs, 4hrs, 6 hrs. Its gotten so that a 1hr video feels short.

The period between 2012 and 2017 was just Golden age YouTube, which also meant it to be at the height of its power. It had such a serious hold on me that I had also developed a huge addiction towards it, and spent the larger part of 2018 with massive anxiety as a result. It shows both the quality and the quantity of content being produced on a regular basis, which was both amazing as well as downright overwhelming.

The first youtube rewind I ever saw was 2014 and i remember LOVING it at the time. I think it was because nobody knew "youtubers" yet and it felt like a little secret community where I knew all the people in the vid and understood all the references when lots of other people wouldn't have. It's obviously outdated now but it still has a place in my heart

How I see it: 2005-2009 - Someone pointed out that this era is a myth and that’s literally a perfect description. The prehistoric era. 2010-2013 - The Golden Age of YouTube. It’s a lot of wholesome content that is probably cringe looking back on it but every creator was genuine and built the foundation for YouTube. 2014-2016 - Everything started to get bigger. More and more creators started to rise and YouTube felt like one giant community. The corporations were slowly starting to creep in however… (imo this was peak YouTube) 2017 - We don’t talk about this year. 2018-2019 - This is the start of where Youtubers started to feel more like brands rather than creators. Money seemed to be a main drive for many, and content didn’t seem all that genuine. Internet culture also became “disfunctional” and “batshit insane”. Corporations have pretty much become a part of YouTube. 2020-Now - This time period was probably not what people wanted, but honestly it’s what people needed. A lot of reflection occurred during the pandemic, and overall brought the community closer. The big creators were struggling with ideas and ways to create, but the smaller creators thrived and grew as a result. As we gained a little bit of normalcy, it has seemed to be a good balance of creators. Conclusion: There has been high peaks and low lows with YouTube, but there could be a bit of optimism moving (only a bit, they can totally ruin this site if they felt like it)

One thing I hate to watch as someone who practically grew up with YouTube, is that slowly over the course from 2012 to now, the censorship and increasing amount of ads have degraded this platform (never forget the Adpocolypse and the deaths of Filthy Frank, among other creators )

Judging based on rewind alone not considering how influential it was etc etc, my favorite would be 2015. It was actually nice and not cringe at all to watch and it brings back memories of when it first came out

3:40 "It might not had been the worst year" *right after the editor skips to the number 1 spot, which is friday* epic 4:58 easily the best year, at least the rewind 6:45 wow that early? don't remember at all. I don't think that was the rise of gaming, but okay maybe it was 8:05 first cringe rewind for me. This is the year where Youtube stopped being familiar with the community. 13:40 This is where youtube started going completely downhill. 16:30 epic 18:00 Pewdiepie's, Flying Kitty's, Dylan Locke's, Grandayy's Youtube Rewind is so good even todat

When did we start caring whether or not something was cringe? I miss when things were just enjoyed. And, even if you didn’t like it, you could still respect the creativity behind it. The Harlem Shake was a pretty awesome thing back when it came out.

Wow, 2011-2013 Rewinds were easily the best with 2014 being okay really surprised he gave them such low ranks. Edit: the videos originally came out in the last fortnight of the year which is why "Let it go" makes sense.

2013 literally is the best year, u don't see them as cringe AT THE TIME. I remember watching variety of unique and creative creators at 2013(smosh, rhett n link, rocket jump, etc.) and they get represented in YT rewind very well, like i know 90% of the creators that went into it. Its like 2012 but more improved. ludwig is trippin.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who feels as though time has sped up over the past 3 years. I thought I was going a bit crazy lol. I think it's probably because we interact with people less. Memories are formed from experiences, and it's harder to form distinguishable experiences when you don't move for a year or two.
