Armed with a wine glass, a self-aware sense of entitlement and a golden radio voice, EmceeProphIt (Mark C. Stephens) is host to a series called PAHNalysis with a very bizarre topic: ''Deconstructing symbolism and subtext in Video Games''. He's known to treat his topics seriously while still being able to poke fun at them, all while [[SelfDeprecation constantly emphasizing the irony of a goofy, barely adult college student]] making [[EdutainmentShow educational videos on fiction and symbolism]] on the internet. [[JustForFun Just For Fun]], no less.

He attempts to blend [[MixAndMatch humor, education, nostalgia and analysis]] in order to keep people's attention. His viewers often praise the sheer uniqueness of his subject matter and the fact that he makes the topics approachable without [[LaymansTerms dumbing them down]]. His biggest gimmick is his false pretentiousness; the P.A.H.N. in PAHNalysis is supposedly an acronym for Pretentious Analysis of Humble Nintendo games, alluding to the self-aware humor of his videos.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: EmceeProphIt has put a bit less emphasis on the wine glasses and pretense of stuffiness as the show has progressed, revealing a snarky, sarcastic commentator who is certainly open-minded, but never afraid to criticize. He still presents the image of false-classiness, but there's more to the persona nowadays.

** For Mark himself, he was a [[PissTakeRap rapper]] a few years ago with a small following on Screwattack.com. He hasn't made any new music recently. He still went by EmceeProphIt back then. He's certainly far more known as a journalist now.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Go watch the first few minutes of his No More Heroes analysis. Other episodes all have great moments, but those moments take the cake.

He began his quest for knowledge in summer of 2012 with an experimental analysis of [[TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]], discussing it's themes of aging, mortality, unity and the power music had to unite cultures. After he earned a small following from that series, he continued the show, discussing topics like duality in games, No More Heroes' Symbolism, the feminist undertones of Samus Aran, and the meaning of Minecraft's Ending.
