Red vs Blue Reconstruction Alternate EndingRvB:R Alternate Ending is Jon`s most viewed video and has been praised for its comedy but, has been under speculation of fabrication by users of YouTube, notably Darthnazgul. Criticisms have due to the video`s audio coming out of sync and loss of audio in the left speaker of headphone or sound system. But, nonetheless was appraised.
The Conduit Walkthrough
The Conduit Walkthrough was MG17`s first full scale walkthrough of a game. It is a 28 part playlist and helped Jon gain more than 40 subscribers and get him as low as 35 on the Most Viewed page in Canadian Directors. It was well received and all 28 episodes gained more than 1000 views. It was a surprise to many users that he beat out [barolb], another Canadian director to beat the game and upload the walkthrough and post the ending. It even shocked Jon, himself because by the time he uploaded the first level of the Conduit, barolb was already on Level Seven. He belives that this was the Most Important set of videos to be uploaded so he can be seen on YouTube.
