Have the Screwattack Top 10s lost their lustre?

So I've had this thought for the last year or so, but it's pretty much been verified after I saw Screwattack's most recent Top 10 (at the time of this posting).

Take a look at their Top 10 Pirates Video:

And conversely, take a look at their Top 10 Pirates in Gaming video from a few years back:

The quality of the videos has stayed consistent, but I notice a real different approach to how things are scripted and conveyed now as opposed to back then. Nick sounded a lot more personal and had fun quips that felt like they were genuinely crafted by him and Craig. More recent Top 10s (2016 onward) feel more like basic informational overviews of a certain character or franchise with an expected quip about said entry, and Nick's "hype" just feels a bit less genuine to me. Listen to how Nick talks about Balthier and and Drachma in both videos and see if you notice what I mean.

I know that things have changed quite a bit with Screwattack, especially in recent times, and I know that they need to stay afloat as a business, but it just saddens me to see less individuality in what used to be such a unique place. Anybody else feel that way?
