Game Theory is a comedy web series created by Matthew Patrick, where he engages in Wild Mass Guessing by analyzing video games to provide answers on a wide variety of questions, from scientifically determining if something in a video game could be achieved in real life (example: could someone survive being headshot a la Fallout: New Vegas?) to tackling some of gaming's biggest questions (example: what is the Pyro's gender?) to some game changing accusations. (example: should Dr. Light be considered a villain?) The show is accompanied by pictures and diagrams, which often aid with what he is saying, or they are just there for visual puns. There are a lot of puns.On rare occasions, MatPat himself goes on camera to test the episode's topic in real life, although it happens less frequently currently.Game Theory is a part of the Game Theorists, a group of game-based shows that analyze video games for a certain reason. See Game Exchange and Digressing And Sidequesting. Not to be confused with the fanfic of the same name.
There's also a two-part episode describing Mario as an animal abuser, misogynist, sadist and mass murderer.
Armor Is Useless: In Minecraft episode, diamond armor turns out be Awesome, but Impractical. Sure, it looks awesome, but it would weigh about 1100 lbs (over 500 kilograms)... and because of the fact that it would be very easy to cut the armor by slicing it along 90–degree planes relative to the surface of the armor, due to the diamond's cleavages (that all crystals also have) making it easier to slice through the hard armor, you would risk wasting a few billion dollars when hit with a sword.
Ass Shove: The line "Let's diagnose" in the AVGN episode is accompanied by a picture of the host giving the Nerd a prostate exam.
In fact, the only real moments of hostility (if you can call it that) are when PBG jumps the gun and trys to say "A Game Theory!" before the proper point.
Late-Arrival Spoiler: If you saw the thumbnail for the second part of the Rosalina Unmasked theory before watching the first, then Princess Peach being Dead All Along won't come as much of a surprise to you.
Magic Feather: One of the Zelda episodes focused on the various strength and health items, and then goes on to explain the placebo effect.
The Reveal: Sort-of. Near the end of the two-parter concerning Rosalina, Matt thinks a little more and starts to think that she isn't Peach and Mario's daughter, but Peach and Luigi's... before dismissing it.
Ever since the episode where it was the main topic, MatPat has frequently used his claim that "Wario is 10 feet tall" to highlight inaccuracies in his videos, and also for general Self-Deprecation.
He frequently expresses his goal of beating PewDiePie in subscribers.
Rule of Sexy: Mentions the controversy about Smite and it's original character model for Kali (and other characters) being overly sexualised to draw the attention of males.
Justified in that most mythological art of female goddesses are practically half-naked. Kali's already been showing her boobs since BC times, so Smite isn't really giving us anything we couldn't have seen after a quick search on the internet.
