Premiering in July 2011, Bro Team Pill is a Website/YouTube series described by its creator(s) as "video game reviews for the modern intellectual."

In actuality, Bro Team Pill has relatively little to do with reviewing games in the traditional sense, focusing instead on delivering non-sequitur looks of video games that are equal parts hilarious, satirical, and surreal. Though primarily a comedy series, the "creative" reinterpretations of games' [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation characters]], [[AlternateAesopInterpretation plot]], and [[FridgeLogic mechanics]] often ''do'' serve as a subversive and incredibly sarcastic review of a game's content. The series' modus operandi is using professional quality video editing to distil commentary from the perspective of a stereotypical "bro," [[SirSwearsALot wildly creative overuse of profanity]], [[NoIndoorVoice LOTS OF YELLING]], and rapid-fire clips of gameplay into a potent 2-4 minute summary. The series is also notable for not cleanly falling into any existing category of EditingWorks, coming across as a hybrid of a VideoReviewShow, AbridgedSeries, and sometimes {{machinima}}.

Bro Team Pill has been steadily growing in popularity through word of mouth over ImageBoards and news aggregators, amassing a buttload of subscribers and becoming featured content on {{Machinima}}'s Website/YouTube network. You can watch it on Website/YouTube [[http://www.

!Bro Team Pill Provides Examples Of:

* AccentUponTheWrongSyllable: Used frequently, with a signature pronunciation of "woman" as "WAH-min."
* {{Angrish}}: Featured in many reviews, and especially prominent in Blacklight: Retribution.
-->[[VideoGame/KillingFloor CUM FLAUDE.]]
** Different flavors of angrish appear in different videos, ranging from psuedo-German gibberish (''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}''), to furious incoherent screaming (''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline''), to just plain unhinged. (War Inc.)
* AstonishinglyAppropriateInterruption: When [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkGgeBXcTq4 announcing his plan to start a new channel]], Bro Team's rant about Digitom Productions is greeted by Nelson of that very group, who excitedly asks if he's working on a new video and expresses high hopes for it.
* AudienceParticipation: "Fate of" video series, where he and some hangers-on party up on random (usually bad) multiplayer games.
* BerserkButton: Everything, but in a meta-sense, Bro is as harsh as [[CausticCritic other internet critics]] when it comes to big name releases, like ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''. Compared to smaller releases, which usually consist of gibberish, twisting the plot into weird quests for drugs and/or boobs, Bro will often straight-out excoriate flaws in Triple-AAA games with little humor. See CausticCritic.
* BoomerangBigot: About his homeland of Canada.
* BreakthroughHit: The first Bro Team Pill videos were featured on Digitom Productions before it became a series of its own. At least one member of the Bro Team is credited in Digitom's videos, and the two channels still link to each other on their respective pages.
* [[BrokeTheRatingScale The Rating Scale Was Already Broken]]: The series gives decidedly odd ratings when it decides to give ratings at all.
** ''{{Garshasp}}'' gets a "Cool out of Yes".
** ''[[{{VideoGame/Tribes}} Tribes: Ascend]]'' gets a "*cough hack wheeze* out of 10".
** For ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon F.E.A.R. 2]]'', he simply states "I would rate this game."
** Ignores rating ''VideoGame/{{Battlefield 3}}'' in favor of rating ''the review itself'' as being better than his ''FEAR 2'' review.
** SniperGhostWarrior gets a Tau Epsilon, with no scale given).
** His {{Hybrid}} review, he would give a hug. [[{{Squee}} (hee hee hee~)]]
** He gave ''VideoGame/AlphaProtocol'' to his brother (and now he won't give it back!)
* BystanderSyndrome: In-game, dying civilians and allies are generally shrugged off in comedic ways.
* CausticCritic: Usually delivered in a bizarre, [[WebVideo/RedLetterMedia Plinkett-on-cocaine-and-meth]] speedscrew of {{Angrish}} and chopped up with non-sequiturs to the point of nonsense, but he drops his persona to eviscerate big name games:
** Bro takes time to not appreciate [[DiscreditedMeme overused memes]], lame jokes, questioning why Angel would return, and criticizing the co-op in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}''.
*** Though he seemed to enjoy it enough to play the DLC campaigns, and ''really'' liked the Bro Team reference in "Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep". Still thinks the co-op is dumb, though he blames that on his friends rather than the game itself.
** 99% of the ''Skyrim'' rap was attacking the game for being, in his opinion, dumbed down, generic, glitchy, not very improved over Morrowind, and short. "Caustic" really is the word here.
** The whole of ''The War Z'''s video was spent criticizing the ObviousBeta state of the game, the absurd degree of micro transactions (to the point where he accuses it of being a scam in a [[FreezeFrameBonus freeze frame]]), and how monotonous the actual gameplay is along with the ridiculously long respawn queue. All set to a nightmarish rendition of MIA's ''Paper Planes''.
** Similarly, the ''VideoGame/DayZ'' video mocked how boring gameplay was.
** Bro mocked the enemy design (which varies wildly and is almost ''VideoGame/PaperMario''-esque), dungeon crawling, and characters of ''VideoGame/{{Recettear}}''.
* TheComicallySerious: All of the Cricket Revolution review is delivered in a calm, dispassionate tone.
* CouchGag: Many episodes have a unique audio clip after the appearance of the title and Pill, ranging from simple exclamations like "INTERNET!" to [[http://youtu.be/CSxlm6VBpzI whatever the hell this sound is]].
* ContractualGag: Combined with his own running gags and mocked in the Guns of Icarus review.
-->"I sure hope JEFFREY shows up! Or that I end up in a SEWER!" (CannedLaughter)
* CreatorBreakdown: Parodied in the Killing Floor review, where Bro Team expresses disillusionment with making Website/YouTube videos and paints himself as being 37 years old, an expectant father, and an aspiring musician. At least two of those things are probably made up. Maybe. Hopefully.
** Parodied again in the Orcs Must Die 2 review, in which Bro Team spends the entire video venting his frustration on women, culminating in him revealing his wife's having an affair, and that he's getting a divorce in which she's getting 'everything'.
* CuckoolanderCommentator: As applied to video game commentary and criticism. Especially noticeable in the ''Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine'' video where the game's many doors and elevators take precedence over the ultra-violent battles with hordes of demons and aliens.
* CurseCutShort: ''VideoGame/Warhammer40000SpaceMarine'' ends with "If you don't stand behind our troops, you might as well stand in front of them and get fu-'''BRO TEAM!'''"
* {{Determinator}}: Bro Team isn't very good at action games, but this doesn't stop him from sticking with even the worst of them until he's finished.
* DrivenToSuicide: His avatar in ''VideoGame/TERAOnline''.
* EverybodyLaughsEnding: A canned-laughter version in the Guns of Icarus review. Bro isn't very happy about it.
* EyeScream: Bro Team's eyes melt from becoming too good at videogames while wearing GUNNAR Optiks gaming glasses.
* FusionDance: The explanation for Bro Team seemingly consisting of one person.
-->"Bros COMBINED to form the team, you fucking guy!"
* FreeLoveFuture: Combined with CrapsackWorld in Bro Team's take on Syndicate.
-->"In the future, the human erogenous brain decides when and where shit's gonna go down. Humans are mere victims to their boner motives."
* FreudianSlip: Played for laughs in the Modern Warfare 3 review.
-->"This shit's more interactive than your most terrifying wet dream, but in this you don't wake up before you get to suck your teacher's dick!"
* GutturalGrowler: The "gruff cop" voice used for The First Templar in ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'', "Portuguese Jason Statham" for ''APB'', and others.
* HurricaneOfPuns: The Singularity review. Doubles as a horribly dangerous Bro Team DrinkingGame if you take a shot for every "time" pun!
** The "Fate of {{TERA}}" video is this taken to a new, un''bear''able extreme, courtesy of a few dozen compatriots on Mumble chat.[[note]]Everyone involved played as Popori, which are small, furry, bear-cub-like creatures.[[/note]]
** In ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2'', Bro proclaims [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe a torso blown in half at the waist]] to have a "leg up in the competition".
** The "Conte" NPC name joke writes itself.
* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey: Bro Team contemplates the many round objects of Singularity, including a pair belonging to a female character that seem to rob him of all free will.
-->"There's even balls on the front of this guy's shirt, and for some reason they make
me want to do whatever this guy says."
* LampshadedDoubleEntendre: In Guns of Icarus.
-->"We're gonna need a specialist: Me. Specialized in one-handed cranking, and also beatin' off my stupid dick."
* LastSecondWordSwap: In ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood'':
-->"When we all know it was the '''JEW'''[[Myth/GreekMythology piter Worshipers]].
** In ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'':
-->"We all know you don't rock out with your [[AC:Sit
on twitter https://twitter.com/JoeJoeFinemy lap]]."
* LaughTrack: Also in Guns of Icarus, apparently to mock his running gags.
* LittleKidLover: Bro has to stop and freeze every time he sees his VideoGame/TeraOnline [[{{Lolicon}} avatar]]. He breaks down in tears after he makes her commit suicide.
* LogoJoke: When Bro Team mocked the Pill in the introduction to the Singularity review, it refused to perform in the next video.
* MadLibsDialogue: The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFeC1O5UB-I Urgent Message from Vin Diesel]] uses snippets of [[Creator/VinDiesel Vin Diesel's]] interviews to protest Bro Team being linked to Machinima.
* {{Malaproper}}: Frequent, sometimes even combined with AccentUponTheWrongSyllable.
* MoneyDearBoy: He's unashamed to admit to this being his sole reason for making the ''VideoGame/{{M|inecraft}}oneycraft''/''VideoGame/{{League of Le|gends}}dgers'' series of videos. He openly admits in his commentaries that he's putting the barest amount of effort into making them, and constantly mocks the viewer for thinking that it'll get good eventually.
* MusicalEpisode: The Skyrim review is delivered in the form of a rap.
** The War Z review is set to an {{Angrish}} rendition of MIA's ''Paper Planes''. Itself a StealthPun regarding the game being accused of being a scam (''"All I wanna do is... and take your money"'')
* NightmareFace: During the VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood review:
-->''That's because he knows he's entering a world of SHIHIHSHIHIH-'' (Bro appears, creepily flicking his tongue at the camera)
* NoIndoorVoice: Gradually ramps up throughout the series, becoming a staple around the Painkiller review. Lampshaded in the following exchange from the Guns of Icarus:
-->*Knock at the door* '''"HEY!" "WHAT?!"'''
-->"You got mail, man." "Oh, fuckin' '''THANKS DUDE!"'''
-->'''"NO PROBLEM!" "FUCK YOU!" "FUCK YOU!" "FUCK YOU, MAN!"'''
* PromotedFanboy: Orayn, creator of his very page and alpha-sycophant who became buddies with Bro Team and eventually came to be an administrator of the Bro Team Team group on Steam. He also serves as the ringleader for various community events.
* PunBasedTitle: Alluded to in the April Fools video of Cricket Revolution.
-->"Well, it sounds like the word 'protein,' but that's not actually what's being said."
* RefugeInAudacity: One of the mainstays of the series, like the Killing Floor review's insistence that the game is about Irish police officers.
* RunningGag: Sewers, the Mace of Trit, MARTIANS, Canada being crappy, "Shit's FUCKED", Jeffrey the giant eagle, murdering the hostage, and EVAC helicopters being blown up.
** VideoGame/{{Crysis}} 3 requiring that Bro tear apart and "improve" (read: destroy) his computer to play the [[SceneryPorn sweet graphics]].
** The Fate of ''VideoGame/{{Planetside 2}}'' video referring to the MAX power armor as "Mexicans" resulted in faux-Spanish gibbering and La Cucaracha blaring over Proximity Chat, which resulted in one fan's visiting Mexican family to call him an asshole.
** Rogue Warrior had "isn't expecting A KNIFE TO THE THROAT" and variations thereof.
* ShoutOut:
** The VideoGame/{{Hybrid}} review has [[Film/BladeRunner "I want more LIFE, FUCKER!"]]
** The ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'' review has [[ComicBook/JudgeDredd I AM THE LAW]]
** ''Many'' videos feature brief allusions to ''Series/TwinPeaks''.
* ShowerScene: Well, a bath scene. From VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood. It's interrupted by Bro [[NightmareFace enjoying the fanservice too much]].
-->[[AC:It's time to take a bath in olive oil, you greasy motherfucker~. Enter, bitches, and wipe my dink.]]
* SoMuchForStealth:
** Intentionally abandoned for ''VideoGame/AlphaProtocol'' and ''VideoGame/CallOfCthulhuDarkCornersOfTheEarth''.
-->"If anyone sees you the mission's '''FUCKED!''' ....Try to keep a low profile."
** ''Literature/RogueWarrior'' has him pull an OverlyLongGag about running up to the Russians and executing the insta-kill knife attack, each time with an increasingly less restrained "THE NEXT GUY ISN'T EXPECTING A KNIFE TO THE THROAT".
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: A few times, most noticeably when he's killed by a surprise melee attack in the CrimeCraft review.
* {{Squee}}: Terraria.
-->"Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!"
** He wants to give {{Hybrid}} a hug.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: In the "Internet Dating" video, Bro Team (posing as a woman) is questioned whether he's actually a man.
-->''lol as if i'm a guy who made this entire profile and is streaming this to like 479 people on the internet''
* TakeThat: The ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare3'' "review" is actually ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare2'' footage. If you don't get it, it's basically saying [[ItsTheSameNowItSucks Modern Warfare 3 IS Modern Warfare 2.]]
** The Skyrim rap, which attacked the game for being generic fantasy, removing or simplifying many elements from Morrowind, and being extremely glitchy.
** Most of the Borderlands 2 review was jokeless, and consisted of Bro trashing the reappearance of Angel, the overused jokes and memes, and (in his opinion) bad, needless co-op.
** Bro hated VideoGame/{{Battlefield 3}} for its slow-paced multiplayer and mocked the [=DLC=], which he deemed unnecessary.
** The fake speedrun of VideoGame/GoneHome might be one. [[MindScrew If you can hear what Bro is saying.]]
** Bro thinks VideoGame/{{Recettear}} (or at least VideoGame/MarkOfTheNinja) "fucking sucks" for its enemy graphics, lack of visitable locations, and anime art style.
** Apparently, Gearbox asked Bro to advertise a new {{MOBA}} of theirs. He posted a vaguely coherent video about how you can totally play as previous Gearbox heroes, like [[VideoGame/{{Half Life 1}} Adrian Shephard]] (you can't), "or something like that".
* TakeThatAudience: The ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' review, which consists almost entirely of him screaming unintelligibly (as opposed to him screaming more intelligibly in other videos). At one point he shouts
-->"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH, IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT!? YOU FUCKIN' PIGS! YOU SKULLFUCKERS!"
** The ''VideoGame/DayZ'' review, a game which Bro Team repeatedly refused to review, begins and ends with the audible sound of sheep bleating. The review itself is much more overly negative than their usual videos - which, in a series that has very little negativity, says something...
** The Skyrim review ends with Bro saying that only utter retards would think Skyrim is good.
** All [[FanMail Sagacious Interrogatives]] are read in gibbering, retarded voices... except for one or two delivered in perfect, calm English, just for comedic effect.
* TheTriple: In the review of Lord of the Rings Online:
-->"You will listen... You will observe... You will EAT TATERS!"
* UncannyValley: [[invoked]] Milked for all it's worth in "Fate of VideoGame/TheEndlessForest", where you play as human-faced fawn. Even Bro has no words.
* UnreliableVoiceover: Comes with the territory of rewriting games' plots for broness, fun, and profit.
* VulgarHumor: The mainstay of the series.
