    1. The Biggest Bazinga

      every time he says "our little monkeys" i picture DK all happy and blushing like "yes, das me, i am little monke"

    2. what'sthisaboveme?

      Game theory i need answers. I got something I've been wondering for a while. I only played the first 3 Dk country games. I never had the chance to play anything after. This will get lost in the comments anyways so this won't matter In Dk country, what if donkey kong was the real villain and king k rool is the real hero. Why are the animals that are not crocodiles after the kongs? In the first game DK defeated the queen bee which caused the king bee to have his revenge in the 2nd game. The bees in the 3rd game seems to be robots, what happened to all the bees from the first 2 games? Is it because they don't want to work with k rool after the king and queen bee were taken out by the kongs or is it because they were on the verge of extinction?? What about the necky bosses in the first game? They were never seen again, so it seems that a mini necky from the first game wanted to avenge the big necky bosses from the first game, changing his name in the process. They weren't seen again after the 2nd game. Different types of animals weren't seen again including the animals in the water. How did this started? With a missing pile of bananas in DK cave, why did DK go through the trouble to take out the other animals just to get his hands on the bananas, even the bosses who had big piles of bananas just like DK, did those banana piles belong to DK which is why DK went after them as well? If that's the reason then does that mean that he keeps all the bananas in a cave which has a risk of getting rotten or if it isn't and it belong to those bosses then why DK would bother them anyways. King k rool took the bananas from DK which lead to DK destroying anything that gets in his way. Even monkeys from those games were against the kongs. After the first game the animals on the island saw that DK was a problem which is the reason why K rool kidnapped DK, after the 2nd game this time K rool kidnapped diddy kong as well.

    3. Back Of The Bus

      what's the name of the song at the beginning of the video?

    4. Alex Theo

      How js 1.77/0.66=26

    5. tiberius staicu

      insert godzilla vs kong reference here

    6. Anthonywsmithjr

      Hey Game Theory how strong is Donkey Kong

    7. Maxinator Prime

      Hoped he'd use a bannana for scale

    8. Jorge Celis

      Tenes caspa....

    9. The Creative Type

      “AND IT’S THIS” The respawn barrel drops in. Me: I think you’ve got the wrong barrel there, pal.

    10. iZePlayz

      Could you please use km/h instead of m/s

    11. KingHD

      And then there's chunky! He's dead... *CHUN-KY! CHUNKY'S DEAD!*

    12. film theory

      People move from Australia to the USA that is far

    13. Henry Patter

      To be honest, this series should be renamed debunking game physics w/ Austin while watching him scream and shout at how yoshi is better than Link, while listening to classical/baroque/whatever music.

    14. Hacksaw Hamster

      Remember when Austin could swear

    15. Mr. Noky

      Sooo What is the lenght of a floating banana ? Do I have to snort ape powder to find it ?

    16. TableTopToast23

      I love the fact that he starts off by creating a new Google doc every time

    17. Vulkandrache

      It escapes my understanding how 1.7 divided by 0.66 comes out to 26. Would that not be 2.6?

      1. Kasha Mill

        Is mir auch aufgefallen, jetzt will ich dass er es sieht xD

    18. Mitsurugi2424

      4:00 What is that music? I know it's not, but It makes me think of the flute in Imaginary Places by Busdriver

    19. Mitsurugi2424

      You know we have gone to far with political correctness when Austin has to say "goshity dangity darnity"

    20. Annie Andersson

      Sorry I'm a bit late to the party, but am I missing something? At 5:20, he says 1.77m and 0.667s makes for 26.5 m/s. This, to me, seems completely wrong given that 0.667s x 10m/s is 6.67m, far longer than the 1.77 he measured. I think our dear Austin is out by a factor of 10, and it should be 2.6 m/s; much more unimpressive.

    21. YB FriendlyStrawberry

      Woah, what crazy barrels

    22. GVO Series

      Unfortunately, any video that isn’t a MatPat commentary, doesn’t do well usually

    23. Paul O'Reilly

      5:16 ??? 1.77m/0.667s ~= 2.652m/s NOT 26.52m/s This then means the acceleration is (2.652m/s)^2/(2×1.5m) ~= 2.344m/s^2

    24. Jake thepro7890

      why is he using the minecraft nether update teaser trailer i mean i love that song but why

    25. Angelina Vald

      Hello matpat, probably won't see this but there's a game nobody can figure out! It has an incredible life even I can't understand, and Im wishing you could figure out! It's in roblox called : de pride isle sanitarium, if you want to see if it's actually good here's a video of the trailer!:

    26. Michael Schroeder

      This is my fav game theory episode.

    27. Jexious


    28. Richard Martin

      Am I crazy, or is there not drop off in this game already? If so, does that mean that gravity in these games is variable (lower when shooting out of the barrel) ? Or did Austin do math wrong (perish the thought)?

    29. Zack Donat

      AND THEN THERE'S CHUNKY!!! he's dead

    30. Zachari Sincennes

      2:11. If human cannonballs "existed," why do they no longer exist?

    31. Matthew Johnston

      I kinda miss when you were allowed to cuss.

    32. Alex Anderson

      all I got from this was that you ruined human cannonballs for me

    33. Kavious Hart

    34. Zion Marquez

      Do the forest

    35. Steven Marchant

      Haha monkey go fast

    36. Jacob Gardner

      Hey, I know its a touchy subject for some; but I really wanna see Austin figure out cyberpsychosis from cyberpunk. Most of his fallout videos were super cool and I was just curious if implants can literally fry your brain or drive you crazy. Food for thought.

    37. aqua_bro

      Game Theory Idea: What would a woman need to become a real life Lara Croft Tomb Raider. I mean education, estimated amount of money, physical training, actual places to discover and explore, would be a good archeologist while shooting everything and everyone while running through ancient ruins?

    38. A Rat

      Hi your theory is really good and all but when you do it based on mario and minecraft it KINDA traumatizes my brother, it's just that my brother always thinks his own way does his own thing and he has autism

    39. Mystery Dusty

      I miss the Austin that screamed so much he broke his voice after every letter

    40. Bernadette Patience

      Mario is not. EVIL😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😡😡😠😠😠😠😠😠😡😡😡🤬🤬😠😠😡🤬🤬😡😠😡🤬🤬

    41. Cres Moon

      anyone else miss Austin saying "God Damn" ?

    42. MoKuZai


    43. jamcdonald120

      no, no, austin, power is mass*accelaration/time^3!

    44. Brandan -

      1. This World Is An Illusion

        This is Austin. Mat Pat still makes videos and his have green letters in their thumbnails, while Austin's have blue letters in theirs.

    47. Everything 'Round With Pablo!

      Can you please make a theory about the Catastrophe Crow Alternate Reality Game?


      I love science

    49. Henry Brown

      I play Donkey Kong on the first Super Nintendo that had a Donkey Kong

    50. Rashod Lamar

      But i do love watching

    51. Rashod Lamar

      Why debunk a video game its for fun not ment to be so literal.

    52. Gabriel Gutensohn

      I like that you played tritsch tratch polka its such a good instrumental and song

    53. Marcha_

      This is the only show on this channel I watch.

      Game theory the timeshare of youtube channels

    55. Obsidian2007

      But have you considered? *MONKE*

    56. Jamie C

      3:57 Are THOSE SONIC SHOES

    57. KiraComments-CHCA

      Minecraft's boat is even weirder than its lava, even on servers. First of all the more you jump on the boat the more momentum you gain and the more momentum you gain the harder you fall somehow and then you die if you gain too much. On servers, standing or jumping on the boat is considered flying -_- anybody want to explain that, I keep getting kicked off the server because I'm standing on a boat -_- it's ridiculous and asinine

    58. Laura Saltman

      Plz stop go back to your own channel

    59. Lpsgenerationtv Lpsgenerationtv

      don't call yoshi stupid lol

    60. Maniac536

      This needs to be required viewing for the Universal Studios designers that are about to build donkey Kong country for reals

    61. add101iscool

      Matpat can you make a video on how strong DK is. I mean in donkey Kong country returns he literally punches the moon and moves it.

    62. Zeldaboy

      I really miss the days when Austin could swear.

    63. Andy Jones

      Isent that eligle

    64. Andy Jones

      Wate why do you have matpats logo and something near His username?

    65. Javier Alvarenga

      Try to find somtjing in among us that doesn't make sence.5:20

    66. Lukas Reimer


    67. M4 Bradley with internet access

      1:57 what i see in my nightmares

    68. Merletastic

      Love seeing a new video from you! Any thoughts on Shadowbringers and its weird multi-worlds setup?

    69. M꙰OIST SOUP

      Anybody know what the guitar stock music is called? I gotta learn to play lmao

    70. Digioverride

      Lol. X"D I love this. The laugh of madness is the best.

    71. Nick Kelley

      Mmmk but John stapp experienced 46 G's and lived to talk about it.

    72. Jesse & Rebecca Kino

      All the videos with Austin i skip

    73. Victor

      Doesn’t retro studios make the donkey Kong games

    74. DK

      WHERS MATPAT!?!?!?!

      1. DK

        Fire him ;-; jk Jk JK

      2. DK

        There’s only one solution

      3. DK


      4. This World Is An Illusion

        He's making videos with green letters in their thumbnails. Austin has videos with blue letters in theirs.

    75. Chardawg

      DK’s literally punched the moon out of orbit, he should be fine

    76. Ralnarene

      Is there any chance of checking out the feasibility of a genetically engineered Chocobo?

    77. Dwayne Ojugbeli

      austin you ruin game theory

      1. This World Is An Illusion

        You can avoid Austin's videos by looking at the letters of their thumbnails. If they are blue, he's doing them. If they are green, Mat Pat is doing them.

    78. java kula

      are we still getting a fall out survival series

    79. Ginger Gaming

      Why is he not swearing

    80. GiftedContractor

      Why do you use the extra life barrels to represent the cannon barrels? It's driving me nuts

    81. Bavarian Banshee

      Is anyone going to talk about this background music? Points if you get what it is.

    82. Bryan x0x

      Doe's anyone like Austin? I mean ... he Just kinda of boring you know. Ps:( Not to be rude or anything )

      1. This World Is An Illusion

        Tip: You can avoid his videos by looking at the letters in their thumbnails. If they are blue, Austin is doing them. If they are green, Mat Pat is doing them.

    83. Tavian Petrie

      Hi Austin, I'm not sure you read the comments often but I wanted to see if it was worth looking into the newest Minecraft update which adds Vibrations and more importantly a set time for the speed of "sound" which is about 20m/s which is drastically slow compared to earth's speed of sound. Of course this means that "sound" travels slower but I'm more interested in what drastic effect this would cause on the life of that planet and if a regular human would even survive in those atmospheric conditions. Have a lovely holiday season! Tavian

    84. hector lewis

      Missed you Austin. WELCOME BACK!!!!!

    85. Juragan Dolly

      so..... austin just created a video for just spitting DK game????

    86. asdf asdf


    87. Toms Meme Centre

      This isn’t game theory this is game science make a channel called game science is basically what I’m trying to say

    88. Ministry of Magic: Department of Mysteries

      Hey bud. ShoddyCast misses you.


      do rocket league

    90. theslayah123

      Why does this have less views than normal

    91. Gogogamer11

      Why does Austin do this stuff? Matpat is WAY better

    92. Yomsh Money


    93. dillweed362

      What is this song at the start

    94. Nyperold

      Did... it bug anyone else a bit that the sprite he used to represent the cannon barrels was actually the barrel that contains DK/Diddy/Dixie/Tiny if you got hit earlier? I mean, it's the barrel with the branding, so I suppose it makes sense that he used it, but...

    95. Philipp Maurer

      i'm very sorry to tell you this my guy but you have your comma in the wrong spot. 1.77m over 0.667s equals to 2.652 m/s i plugged that number into the accelleration formula and got 2.344..... m/s^2. sooo reasonable accelleration i guess? i didn't continue the calculations because i was too lazy to do it. I love your videos, Austin. Please don't take this as a personal attack. Please don't hurt my papa Austin. Kind Regards from Austria :)

    96. Donovan Art

      I'd imagine the math is a bit off because Austin measured Mario's height starting the length from the toes instead of the heels

    97. Monke !

      I want some powered monke

    98. LEODE1

      I like when he screams

    99. Sabrina C

      could you do a video on the lava gun or morph-a-ray from Ratchet and Clank? it's one of my favorite games

    100. jacob rankin

      I’m sad we don’t live in the same city anymore
