    I loved your NT content as well as your new format. Most of all I'm proud of your success!

    It's so fun watching your new vids and knowing how it all started.

      i found your channel through some youtube recommendations for your (really interesting & wonderfully made) medical videos, and decided to check out your past videos.

      i don't normally comment on videos at all, but seeing your channel progress from your very first video, to your various ventures in youtube video making, to burning out to the point of making this video; and then now in oct 2019, seeing your success with your current videos was really interesting. for me, it resonates a lot with my own experiences in life in similar aspects and so it's really interesting to see someone else go through something similar, and find (at least in youtube numbers), great success.

      whether you remain focused on your ideals or decide to branch away from them, i'm incredibly happy for your success, and i hope that you're able to be fulfilled & happy with yourself in what you do and the direction that you're taking.

      i personally think that many of your videos (including but not limited to your medical ones), have profound, positive messages in them. i think it's really admirable that you spend such efforts to get those messages out, and, quite honestly, i'm a big fan!

      hoping the best for you!

              2 years later... You have a subscriber who did not know you made weight loss videos and especially did not know you were a "let's play" YouTuber... I found you during your medical "presenting" at the ER videos.
              I thought you were a young doctor who made medical videos!
              Please keep making those medical videos - they are important and opened my eyes to deep vein thrombosis (I am physically disabled with adhesive arachnoiditis from a broken neck and back... my arachnoid layer was pierced by the broken vertebra... I do not have the ability to be physical anymore and I spend a lot of time sitting or laying down, not standing... you opened my eyes to needing to stand more).
              Thank you!!!

                            I found your medical videos and I didn't realize the diversity of interest on your channel. Keep doing cool stuff, it's the path of a modern day renaissance man!

                                  I subbed because of the medical science videos.

                                  I keep adding different subjects to my channel as it keeps things alive.

                                    Hey man. Thought you might like to see the mind of your watchers. You will probably not see this anyways but, I love your life playlist!

                                    First time i saw your video was about a month ago. One of your medical analasys videos. One of the life videos poped up a couple of days ago, an oh my god i love them! Please put the life playlist higher in priority, maybe more people will see them. Nlt a lot of youtubers talking about life, and i love the way you do it.

                                    Keep up the good work! Greeting from a 18 yr old from Norway, soon to be sone with high school.

                                            I'm pretty happy to see that not only did you change the direction of your channel from something that you felt ran it's course (instead of running it into obscurity) but you found even MORE success. Gives me hope for this platform.

                                                The only thing I don't understand is that you got so worried about 'driving your numbers up' when in the same video you say that you only made this channel to share ideas. If you weren't making money elsewhere then I'd understand but you are so it seems a bit pointless worrying about numbers when YouTube isint your full on focus. Again you said you didn't do this for money so the numbers bit confused me.

                                                        I just discovered you for the medical oddities. But I am also interested in your motivational and fitness videos. I am a fatty and I hate myself. My parent was quite the opposite of yours. She wanted me to live with her as long as possible and I feel like all my intelligence and talents were wasted because I was never instilled with any sort of self-discipline growing up. I aspire to be like you. And yeah, back in 2014/5, I actually watched a lot of streamers but within 2 years I became very bored by it so now I am much more interested in your current content.

                                                            Hey Bernard, I just saw your augmentation video and thought it was amazing. A lot of your best videos are the ones with a lot less views than the others. The ones that enlighten and embolden our lives with ideas on life and living. You shouldn't feel bad about your Deus Ex video at all. The information about healthcare and how it dampens the ability for the medical industry to make forward progress is very well put together and that is nothing to be ashamed of.

I joined the band wagon by your medical videos, I absolutely love them, they’re are a ton of youtubers that play games, which is great, and all the other topics are saturated as well. But there are not that many youtubers that cover medical cases and you do it in such an amazing way that it is easily the most educational stuff I’ve watched, EVER. It’s so easy to follow along and by the end of the video you walk away with legitimate knowledge from the medical case. So keep in chugging man, it’s life, you’re going to have negative feed backs, shrug the shoulders, it is what it is. The important thing, and really the only thing that matters is, do you enjoy doing what you’re doing? If you do then keep putting out the videos. Do them on the topics you enjoy, if it’s 15 minute video of just staring at your feet, people will still find that enjoyable, people will still find it dumb, but you enjoyed making it, and everyone on here is subscribed to you because we enjoy you for who you are when you enjoy what you do.

Sometime you got to cut your audience to get the group you are targeting. You are not just a single topic channel... but you are a great general topic YouTube personality. I hope you know that there are some of us that enjoy the wide verity and the authentic nature that you put out.

                                                                          Hopefully everything works out but the most important thing is to enjoy it, or at the very least don’t do it if it is effecting you negatively.

Your channel blew up after this video and with your recent medical videos, nobody could have ever thought you used to be a NT let's player, at least I didn't.
                                                                            Anyways, your video is really accurate about the state of youtube but I am glad you managed to find something that both interested and was lucrative for you in the end, keep doing what you are doing even if you end up moving on from your current style.
                                                                            I liked the time you poked fun at northernlion, he is a great guy but many of his fans only wanted that one game, guess he has to find it enjoyable but I still don't know how he does it.

Just do what makes you happy, even if that's not youtube, I'd love to see you continue youtube and be happy, but if it's not possible than no worries. Thanks for all the awesome videos (BTW I didn't even know nuclear throne existed nor would I watch it, I cam here from that PC video you made and I stayed not for technology but for YOU, you were awesome in that video, in other videos I've watched you were exactly the same type of person and I loved it. Keep doing what makes you happy okay? :) many thanks for ALL your videos and ideas. Also your newest medical videos (well all your medical ones) are VERY addictive and interesting, hopefully my feedback isn't the only positive feedback.

I super love them, and it makes me happy to see you ended up finding something to spark your channel again! ^^ But you seem like a really great guy so as a new sub, I'll be happy to watch whatever you end up making in the future!

                                                                                            I don't understand how you're being punished here. You say that you post videos for fun but you're concerned with view count and subscribers. Why? How does someone else watching your video effect how much fun you had making it? I rarely post videos and when I do, it's for friends or family, I don't care who watches them or how many views they get, I'm posting them because I want to, not because I want views. You have a job, you're not doing this for financial gain, so why do you care if 10 people watch the video or a million people watch it. Fun should be had during the process, not after the fact when others approve of it. If the only thing that was fun for you was watching the number go up, then I'd suggest watching the kilometre count on your car when you drive to and from work, not posting videos on youtube.

                                                                                              Yeah this makes no sense to me either. Why was he so worried about driving his numbers up when he also claims that he didn't do YouTube for views or money. Kind of contradicts himself.
