This is basically Ben Shapiro but way older.

One of the main Russian TV griefters looks like this and his mother's last name is "Shapiro"

I haven't personally heard them saying anything about facts and feelings but I wouldn't be surprised.

You say "But wait, Dale, javascript developers can do awesome stuff too" to which I can only say "Yes, but not me!"

You kill someone in the ass, see "Rear Entry +50" popup in red on the screen and think about how you even got to this point and why is this even happening to you. It's a state of genuine disbelief on the cringe of situation that slowly envelopes you through the game. It's good fun.

It's like how Noah Gervais describes the value of the very first sex scene in God of War: While being extremely tacky and kinda sexist in the later games, the first instance was well hidden and almost feels like just a sick prank on developers part. In words of Noah, "If developers were standing next to player in that moment they'd be laughing and giving high fives to each other just for making you sit through the cringe", and I feel like the whole system of skillshots is just that.

There's Rear Entry for shooting someone in the ass, Assplosion for doing the same but with explosives, Shish-kebab for impaling two or more enemies onto something, it's extremely "juvenile" and ridiculous but it adds sort of a charm to a game.

Also I really-really like the juvenile sense of humor bulletstorm has. There's a distinct type of skillshot that involves first shooting an enemy in the balls (which triggers a stun animation) and then finishing them off, which is just called "Mercy" and that sounds pretty meh on it's own but it's all over the game.

Instead of stop and recover action it becomes a game of how much punishment you can deal without getting hurt yourself, prioritizing enemies on the go and improvizing with environment to the best of your ability. The best way to play despite what your regen-shooter instic will tell you is to just get right in the middle and start kicking ass, both figuratively and quite literally.

I think this can be analogous to DOOM's Glory Kill system: Without it, you'd just crouch behind cover for pop-and-shoot whackamole action, but since enemies drop little ammo, and ammo is purchased with skillpoints, you are actively engouraged to be in the action as much as possible and use kick, leash (which pulls distant enemies towards you) and environment to do as much chaos as possible. I think such a system plays very nicely with regenerating health.
