Pros

Cons

    • Anything available on YouTube is completely free and infinitely repeatable. It's always a pro.
    • Course makes a strong effort to guide true beginners through the development process.
    • Lessons are very easy to digest.
    • Entirely GUI-based game development. This is not a place to learn coding.
    • Number of views rapidly dwindles as you get into the series, suggesting that completing the course is harder than it seems.
    • Videos were filmed on an older version of Unity. Some discrepancies may come up.

I suspect this opinion will not be very popular but I do not think his tutorials are good.His videos are more-like bite-sized, fast track info-dumps and will not teach you good concepts, but quick, usually not the best methods of achieving things.For me, tutorials that go into considerable depth of the how and why, while really exploring the ideas they are teaching are the best for learning.

If I would not be so lazy I probably watch all those videos and make all those games by myself and then my skill in Unity would go +100. I really recommend his videos to you no matter if you are a beginner or an advanced unity user!

If you're new to Unity3D then they may be useful. Especially since they're non-technical usually. But as much as I see them pop up on the front of my YouTube page I've not seen one useful or beneficial to me.

I was curious about Unity and spent the day building a 3d game alongside his beginner's series. He is a great teacher

If you are a beginner , I would recommend Brackeys Tutorials for you. They are just great for beginners to Intermediate.

I've been trying to find a decent tutorial on game development and I think I finally found it. You have a nice voice, there's a very friendly atmosphere and I like how you actually teach how things work.

This is where I started learning Unity, back in 2013. You're vids helped me learn a lot about Unity.

Thank you. I have been trying to start figuring out how to make a game and you finally opened up my eyes to something awesome.

I've always wanted to learn how to make games and you are an awesome teacher, even if it is just beginning. Thank you so much for making these videos. I feel like i'm learning so much.
