Personality and Let's Play Style

Masterath is an entertaining Let's Player and occasionally says very odd things for the enjoyment of the viewers.

On multiple occasions over the last few years he has a backlog of around 500 videos waiting to be uploaded. He states that even though the backlog is huge, it is the best way for his channel to stay consistent so his watchers do not miss out on his video a day schedule on the off chance that he is unable to make any videos for a few weeks.

Masterath has already stated that his favourite game if all time was Jade Cocoon for 10 years until his Let's Play of Pokemon Gold which became his favourite, he has also stated that XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a close third. After 9 LPs of different Sonic the Hedgehog games. Masterath has also stated that the Game Gear/Master System version of Sonic 1 is his all time favourite Sonic game. He has also stated his hatred of the Scrap Brain Zone and more noted, Its music from the Genesis Version of Sonic 1. Even at 1 point, changing the music to the 8-Bit, Game Gear version. In September 2012, Masterath stated his favourite Pokemon Game to be Pokemon Gold and his favourite Pokemon generation to be the Second Generation.
