YMMV / Tipping Forties

Go To

  • Americans Hate Tingle: The Forties are all pretty unanimous in their hatred of Yuna, Akiba, Colette, Nozomi...
  • Broken Base: The T40's new style of pre-recorded commentary making it's début in the Final Fantasy X-2 LP. The common consensus currently seems to be slanted on the Hate side of the scale however.
    • It got so bad that they started over with the old format. And Marvelis bailed out, so it's even more like the original FFX run.
      • Ryan admits this in the final so what did we learn of the Final Fantasy X-2 LP - and rather graciously takes full credit for the whole situation.
  • Jerkass Woobie: bandunk, nearly. He loses most of the time and his apathy makes him seem sorta down. Of course he doesn't really care (maybe).
    • The thread wanted him to not lose at NSMB simply because he sounded so defeated.
  • Tear Jerker: Their break-up of the company. Granted they're still best buds, Benson and Ryan will still do Let's Plays, and bandunk will join them for the streams, but for those of us who really enjoyed the Forties' dynamic, it is a bit of a downer knowing they'll never go back to that format.
    • Strangely enough; it's possibly even more so for those of us that could actually see it coming. Marvelis backing out, the move to post commentary and back again with all the negative feedback that created, Benson moving out of state, two of them finding long term partners... something had to break eventually. Everything good always comes to an end.

How well does it match the trope?
