You sure about that?

Danny2462: 150k subscribers - shows massive destruction

Scott Manley: 550k subscribers - shows space travel

 

Scott does more than just KSP, however, and (don't tell Danny this, but he talks and shows his face, and that generally gets people more subs) even though Danny does do a little more than just KSP, he always knows he can bounce back on KSP to get him subs. Look at his most viewed videos... After scrolling through 35 videos (all with glorious mass destruction) we reach something about Stanly Parable (what is that?) and then there is another slew of KSP videos after that.

Scott does space games, that is exactly my point.

I would vote if I could (I don't have steam). Why does everyone care what kind of reward KSP got? I mean.... it got a reward!!!!! for jeb's sake! That means people know about it and like it!!

For something that's supposed to be fun, people sure seem to want to take this way too seriously.

Makes me wonder if the MTV Movie Awards had this problem.

No, this game is about exploring AND exploding! And yeah, just give me five more minutes to blow this thing up.

But Broforce is literally blow everything up. I don't see how KSP could win against it.

But they are DIFFERENT space games, like Elite: Dangerous and Eve online. I watch Scott's KSP videos only, and because I like them, I subscribed. I watch Danny's KSP videos, and since he does mostly KSP vids, I also subscribed. But let's say I find another YouTuber with one or two KSP vids. I'm not going to sub to him, because he won't play KSP again after that. And so we come back to Scott. Scott basically never uploads more than 2 KSP videos back-to-back, because he has a lot of series videos going on about different games, so people will know that they can rely on Scott to deliver what they want, KSP or whatever.

So you agree with me then?  You basically are just arguing my point but making it sound like you are disagreeing.

It's all about image.  If you cast the game with the likes of Broforce, it demeans the actual educational value of the game and everyone views it as that game with all the explosions.  We all love this game and don't want to see it with that kind of image.  It's a wonderful game for learning about how real space travel works, it's not about the explosions.

Those problems are inherent in space travel.  That is why they are in KSP.  But it's not about the explosions, it's about the noble challenge of space travel.  I will be doing my part in this vote to ensure KSP does not get associated that way any more than it does already.  That means voting against it I'm afraid.  I wish it were in another category.

There are people here who would argue that KSP is actually a train simulator, so I think KSP would fit in quite a few nominations, including one featuring explosions. It all depends on what you like to do in the game. KSP can be a lot of things.

Well that's fine for them, but I'm not voting for it in a category that I think demeans the game.

And that's perfectly fine, everyone gets their own choice. That's what voting's for, right? :)

Sir or Madam, you have not seen the sheer explosioniness of Broforce.  Few things can compete with a combination of privatized American propaganda and explosions on a massive scale.

I know what the game seems like, i just dont think it will win unless there are multiple steam awards

From a philosophical point of view @Alshain is right, but, forgive me, i will vote. KSP is already carved deep into my soul - i am bound to support it.

Merry Christmas!

For today's choice, "Test of Time" I voted for Team Fortress 2. I really can't believe that game is about to turn 10.

I definitely don't agree with the category KSP has been nominated into. But still its my most favourite game. I have to vote for it.

Thanks, Squad! Keep optimizing it!

So if I play KSP for the explosions I'm doing it wrong? Gee.

KSP isn't a game about explosions, but if it didn't have explosions, many beginning players would see no reason to continue. That's the long and short of it IMO.

Congrats to the KSP team for the award nomination!

I'm not going to continue to reply, but I have 2 points-

1- Scott does more than just play games, B/C he talks about stuff like the Event Horizon and EM drives.

2 - Scott uploads more videos, so he would naturally have more subs.

Point number 1- Space 'nerds' would sub to him B/C they know that he knows what he's talking about. He also plays numerous other games, so he will have subs from their communities too.

Point number 2- Scott has uploaded 1,647 relatively humorous videos, and that looks humongous compared to Danny's hilariously funny 125.

HOWEVER, Scott gets an okay 343 subs per vid, but Danny? Danny gets a whopping 1171 subs per vid. See my points?
