Reply DoubleGGaming(meruz) February 10, 2017 99 donkeys and one price is not the same as 2 donkeys and one price so you can't compare them. Apples and oranges because one in 100 is 1% one in 3 is 33%. Reply Shifty March 10, 2017 Is that a typo at the end?

Everything looks so weird. Reply Rafael Neal July 1, 2017 I remember these old videos which were like vsauce, but with games. Now Matpat just sucks the cocks of 12 year olds to get view on youtube. Reply Ethan Patzer July 3, 2017 interesting fact: MATPAT actually partnered with screwattack to make a video labeled: Is Jinx Racist? Reply nikkiwolf22 July 26, 2017 In one of the GT Live episodes where he played Dirty Minds, he said he's never heard the joke of a word for a woman ending in U-N-T being ambiguous. And yet it's in a video he made in 2012 😛 Reply Neon Noise August 2, 2017 man old school game theory was so much more risque haha Reply ios10meme August 6, 2017 Oh god! Who actually thought that was Aunt? Reply Gno Homo August 7, 2017 Jesus, I just came from your latest infinite super Mario maker levels video to this and it sounds like you recorded it with some 5 pound/dollar headphones with a sweaty sock tied to the mic, its awesome to see how tech has changed in only 5 years Reply Greatness Inc.

Reply SuperVegitoFAN August 24, 2017 3:53 i didnt really understand the Monty Haul Problem before this one. Nice job on that. Granted that was a few years ago, i just wanted to give credit where credits due. Reply diamond eye August 30, 2017 I wasn't sure how old this was before, but after seeing the intro and listening to MatPat's voice, that really helps to date the video. p.s. F**K I'm old (18 as of 2017) Reply MUSIC & MORE August 31, 2017 old fashioned GT!!!! yos!!! Reply KianWasHere September 2, 2017 Who's here from todays video? Reply Anant Gupta September 2, 2017 7:31 Some of the probabilities are wrong. Take slot 2 for example. It has to go 3 left and 9 right in any order. However, if the route L,L,L,R,R,R,R,R,R,R,R,R is considered, it would be impossible as the chip would hit the left wall when trying to go left for the 3rd time. So the probability would actually be 5.35% (3.s.f) Reply / InsertGenericNameHere / September 2, 2017 God damn this channel has gotten so much better. Reply Billy Been Bacon September 3, 2017 I think matpat got the ostrich… Otherwise, how would he be able to do that episode of game lab?

Reply Taylor Gibson September 13, 2017 It's always interesting when the line between "FILM Theory" and "GAME Theory" starts to get blurred. Reply KaT King of The World September 14, 2017 I would normally like to show my maths skills and get all the ladies, however, I'm a taken lady!

Reply Joey O'Sullivan December 6, 2017 This just came up on my feed as new…in 2017…time to get a new computer Reply Xen Xander December 7, 2017 The more doors there are, the better your odds of wining if you change doors after all bogus doors are revealed. But in the event of only 3 doors, removing one doesn't mean much. You KNOW one door is wrong anyway.In the case of 100 doors I can ALMOST guarantee I chose the wrong door. Thus I WILL swap once there are only two choices left.The more doors, the better the odds if you swap, based on the probability you chose wrong. But when it's only 3 to begin with.. there might as well be only two doors. The 'first reveal' is just for padding.

I remember when this came out. He's come a long way Reply Clever Name June 14, 2018 Everyone: "The old Game Theory was better."Me: "I nearly had a gag reflects just listening to the audio quality in the intro of this video." (And I was an early viewer of Game Theory (And before you hold the whole 'Your account was created years after this video was uploaded' claim against me, because, face it, the internet is always looking to call people out on their crap. This is my 'recently' created aux account that I mostly use to remain 'anonymous' in the comments. I mainly use/used my personal account to share unlisted videos with friends and family and it contains my real, not as clever name.)) But in all honesty, it is amazing how MatPat and game Theory as a whole has grown and evolved over the years. Each older video is like a time capsule that, despite it's crudeness, has it's own little, special charm about it. One that you can only truly appreciate years after it's been uploaded and tremendous growth over that time. Btw, I still don't quite know how I ended up back here (I may need some help (no I am seriously dumbfounded here)). Reply Matias V June 16, 2018 Thank you old MatPat. This became even more interesting after my probability class about binomial distribution.

Where were you during precalc??? Reply Suspect Down September 29, 2019 This "Monty Hall problem" does NOT follow the rules of the game at all. Monty NEVER offered to switch the door once picked. WHY not use a True Monty Hall problem ? According to the rules of the game you have TWO players with no option to switch your pick.SO in a true Monty Hall math problem WHICH of the two players has the advantage ? And what is the math for this ? Reply Suspect Down October 4, 2019 Marie Fontaine 5 hours ago "@Araqius "Suspect Down is a troll." Have you clicked on his avatar and seen his uploads? There's a trollfest to be held there because he's such a fraud." Seems "some"of these people on these threads only care about making themselves look very stupid and only attack when not able to comprehend something ?

Reply Elias Turney November 24, 2019 ok, but you actually got it wrong, according to the Monty Hall problem, it's actually more probable that you win by keeping the same door Reply Kevin Campbell November 24, 2019 I just saw the Jeopardy video and had to dig into the archives and find this gem. I loved this episode!!! and the Jeopardy one. I stand by my comment in the Jeopardy video. I would love to see you make more game show episodes they're actually quite interesting, plus, i just wonder how many game shows you can actually find a theory to base off of Reply Allie 0nly November 26, 2019 I live in the south. Ostriches are worth a pretty penny. Reply Michael Cummings November 26, 2019 That _UNT was not meant to say AUNT. Reply oscar word December 2, 2019 Nice advertising from the future.
