    They actually were watching what executables you were running. Be scared. Be very scared.

    This also happened after I picked up Mad Max again on my PS4, after a longer hiatus, making the sudden and immediate YT-suggestions very glaring to me

    That has never happened to me :D.

    But that's only because I've always been into smaller, better games.

    This is only the second time I notice it though, but that's cus my internet-habits are pretty predictable, consisting of various daily routines. Just to check, YT just now added more Oblivion recommendations, including year-old ones. How do they think people won't be creeped out by such immediate "coincidences"?

    ^ and that's me being super-generous with the credit I'm giving the average internet-user for actually noticing when a website knows what you talked about on another site minutes prior.

    Most people don't pay too much mind to it. They have a new/reignited interest in Oblivion? Wow! I see some videos on here now that I want to click, how neat.

    Depressing, but true. Every now and then I try not to be a hopeless cynic, but... it keeps dragging me back into its murky depths

    It's possible that the Google ads running on this site have tagged you as being interested in Oblivion. Youtube is owned by Google, so they would share that information pretty freely. It could come from anywhere though, Facebook scrapes your messages the same way. The only other things I can think of aside from Google ads is using Chrome while signed into your Google account or if you posted from an Android phone.

    Yesterday I went to the toilet, I may have had my cell phone with me in my jeans pocket. Immediately afterwards, Youtube started giving me diarrhea commercials. :D Skynet is watching us and it's all fucked up. :D
