The Real Life Landscapes of Fallout 1, Fallout 2, and Fallout: New Vegas
https://youtu.be/89sOyZdtVA0

In this video, a man travels across Nevada and California in an attempt to visit the major locations of Fallout 1, 2, and New Vegas, or if the fictional location has no real-life counterpart, a place that evokes it.

I love this video. While the concept of the video is to compare the locations to their in-game counterpart, the real meat of it is his explanations of the various areas he visits. Everything from big cities, to small towns, to ghost towns, even an abandoned rotting house in the middle of nowhere. No matter what he goes into the history of where he is, explaining both how it compares to its Fallout counterpart and where it fits into real-life history. He also has a way with words. My favorite quote is from when he talks about the Stratosphere Casino and Skylounge, the real-life equivalent to the Lucky 38.

Up here, at the top of Las Vegas, there’s no real crowd to speak of. Way out there in the glittering distance, they’re selling fantasy. Up here, it’s $25 a hit for a windy, strange reality.

I really like 3blue1brown's videos explaining maths. He does a really good job of talking about why things work, he doesn't get all hung up on nerdy maths humour, and he has a really chill, Bob Ross-like demeanour while still being really passionate and fired up about his topic.

You guys aren't going to believe this, but that guy is our games teacher.

If you want to learn how computers work on a very low level, check out Ben Eater. You don't need to know a lot about electronics to follow along with his videos and he even sells kits with all the necessary components for you to build the projects along with him. In one series of videos he builds up a basic CPU from just simple digital logic chips. In his current series of videos he's building a computer around the classic 6502 CPU (found in the Apple II and Commodore 64 among many others). If you want to get a taste of his video style, check out this short two-part series on building a very rudimentary ("the world's worst") video card:

Seconding this and also all his other travelogue videos. You can conveniently find them all in a playlist. His videos on games are also very good but not on the same level as his travel videos.

Hey, I love this thread. Do any of you have some good videos on how to draw or paint? My mom and I watched the art restoration video together and loved it, and she asked me for more "youtube how-to draw" type things.

No I'm sorry : (

I do have FrankJavCee and BasedGutta to mention though. They're probably not something your mom would want to watch but these guys make good sense of some music production techniques without being too dry. Frankjavcee is much less crass and generally more palatable than BasedGutta

Remembered another one!

Twenty Years, Twenty Lessons Learned

This is an hour-long GDC talk by Mark Rosewater, head designer for Magic: the Gathering, in which he details 20 lessons he’s learned over his game design career. You don’t have to be into MTG to enjoy this video. I did not know the first thing about MTG when I first watched it, and I found it fascinating. The lessons are designed to be applicable to game design in general, not just this one game. It is very rare for someone to work on a single game for such a long time, and with that experience comes the knowledge of what exactly makes a game tick at a fundamental level.

One of the coolest lessons imo is the first one: Fighting Against Human Nature is a Losing Battle. If players often make the same mistake when playing your game, it is generally better to change the game, rather than trying to change the players’ instinct. For Example: If your players often try to attack before they are allowed to, you could add more reminders about when they are allowed to attack, but it might be better to just let them attack earlier.

Basic Reproduction Number, R0

A twenty minute video by a British medical dude. It explains what the R0 number is (it relates to the spread of viruses). Informative and useful info during our pandemic. He's been making a lot of informative videos on the virus, too.

Goes into a lot of detail about gladiators and Roman culture, and how lots of things you probably think you know about it are not true.

I THINK BUDWEISER IS GOOD. PLEASE DO NOT LISTEN TO ME.

After getting way into Crusader Kings 2 and learning about medieval history last year, I came across Fire of Learning. The guy does incredibly informative history videos with lots of maps and old works of art.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7AEOWa5__70

They're really dry and lecturey but I'll take that over the hundreds of low budget history channel dramatizations any day. I found them great to have on in the background of my life and they got me really interested in the thousands of years of history I knew absolutely nothing about going in!
