@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Not sad at all. If you enjoyed making it and putting it out, viewers are secondary. At least that is what I tell myself for my podcast and channel.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy That's not sad, that's great! Twelve people around the world have watched and hopefully enjoyed something you've created. Now imagine those twelve people standing in front of you; it's a bigger group than the number makes it look, isn't it? You've got an audience!

D'aww thanks @Rudy_Manchego & @RogerRoger

It was only the opening ten minutes of the Code Vein trial/demo though. I never really got to any actual gameplay. The next part has gameplay and like 2 views... Still better then most of my videos which weren't seen by anybody! 😅

That's neat about the podcasts you do Rudy! I hope those go well!

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy hey most of mine are lucky to get above 10 so i completely understand when one video gets the highest you even had although to be fair i have and a couple actually get a few hundred and at leas one video break a thousand but for the most part they really don't get much in terms of views

i think those were just the right thing at the right time

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy FYI, your YouTube link in your profile doesn’t work..

I used to have a music blog when I was at uni, mainly to talk about gigs I’d been to. It was quite addictive to look at your hits, where they came from etc.

And my highest YouTube vid views is 260k (only because it’s a quite rare song that I posted around ten years ago..)

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Thanks! It is very amateur, immature and unprofessional (and we are terrible at self promotion) but to be honest, it is so much fun being silly and making them that we just do it for the love of it to be honest. I think when it become a boring chore we will stop but at the moment we make each other laugh making up silly gaming news stories or doing fake industry interviews. Got to put that GCSE drama qualification to some use!

Hey guys, I'm looking for some info about The Last of Us 2 but I can't find anything here. Suggestions?

@andreoni79 ha ha nice one! I try to avoid Push Square for gaming news when they go overboard like this as I've missed other stuff in the past. Shame cos normally the articles are pretty good, but I'd rather get it from somewhere else when this happens.

So traditionally, my reaction to watching a Let's Play on YouTube has been the same as my reaction to playing sports games; if I wanna kick a ball about, I'll join a local five-a-side, thanks. The idea of watching somebody play a game just felt kinda hollow, in the same way I've never understood why Gogglebox is such a popular TV show.

But recently, after enjoying a couple episodes of Retro Replay (the Nolan North / Troy Baker vehicle) my best friend pointed me towards Eurogamer, whose content she really likes. I ended up watching their entire Let's Play of Alien: Isolation. It's a game I'd never have chosen to play myself, because I don't do horror games, but had heard nothing but good things about. I was curious enough to try their "Late to the Party" for it and now, fourteen episodes later, I've just finished it.

What likely helped is that Ian and Aoife, the folks playing it, were really quite funny and charming; I've usually recoiled from other content creators on YouTube, but these guys were consistently nice, nerdy and non-controversial. So yeah, I guess I was wrong to dismiss the entire Let's Play thing. I really had fun checking out their experience, and now feel like I've enjoyed Alien: Isolation without having to put myself in the nerve-shredding driving seat.

What are your thoughts on Let's Plays? Do you all like / dislike them?

The only let's plays I've spent much time watching are Markiplier's Five Nights at Freddy's playthroughs. I'm interested enough in those games and their lore, but too much of a wuss to ever want to actually play them.

Other than that, I don't watch much in the way of Let's Plays. Time spent watching people play games is time I could be spending gaming.

@RogerRoger Yeah i don't to get them at all, if I wanna play a game I'll just play it. Even if you watch someone play a game you not gonna get totally what it feels like to experience it. I don't see the point of them. And don't get me started on stuff like Gogglebox, it really annoys me that it is so popular and all reality tv should be binned imo. If I was ever to do a 'Room 101' it would probably be top of the list to go in.

@RogerRoger Whilst I've never actually sat and watched any of that sort of content (I share the opinion that gaming is a pastime whose very raison d'etre is interactivity) I see no reason why it shouldn't be entertaining and informative if the hosts/players are charismatic and knowledgable enough to warrant my spending that time in their company. Having said that I would prefer to spend hours listening to a hungover Yorkshireman gargling with pebbles than endure a single moment of the sound of Aoife Wilson's voice. It is awful.

@RogerRoger I've seen some great streamers and Let's Plays and I think there is a real skill to it so I get why people do want to watch it. However, with time being limited and already filled with games, movies, youtube, websites etc. I just can't see myself getting into it.

@LN78 Ah ha so you have listened to my podcast then? I will order more pebbles!

@Rudy_Manchego I haven't heard your podcast I'm ashamed to say. Can you tell me where to find it without indulging in the type of shameless self-promotion that breaks community rules?

Rudy_Manchego

@LN78 Oh that wasn't meant as self promotion (and I don't really gargle pebbles). If you check out my twitter feed or website link on my signature it should have details. But don't feel obliged to listen. Also, it is for grown ups.

@Rudy_Manchego I'm not certain that I qualify as a grown up but I'll give it a listen nonetheless.
Edit: I didn't mean to imply that you were promoting your podcast,just that posting a link for me may have broken the rules. Sorry if it sounded uppity.

@LN78 Thanks! No worries if you hate it. I recommend later episodes as sound quality etc. is better.

Wow, thanks for all the replies!

@crimsontadpoles You've hit upon exactly why I think I enjoyed watching Alien: Isolation so much. I'm not sure I'd ever watch a game that I'm interested in playing, or could play, for myself.

I tried watching Nolan North and Troy Baker play Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and it just got so frustrating, because I'd forever be growling "Go left... left... LEFT!" or replying aloud with "For the third time, it's triangle!" whenever Nolan asked how to pick up ammo. There were a couple times I did similar with Alien: Isolation, or where I saw things they missed, but it was lessened because I couldn't really judge, having never played it for myself.

Interesting to think about where people's eyes go when playing games, though. I would frequently see enemies, objects or environment details that I assumed were front-and-centre, and yet they'd turn away from them, completely oblivious to them. I guess that speaks to the difference between passively watching something and actively controlling it.

@JohnnyShoulder @LN78 I still very much agree with you both; watching interactive entertainment still feels weird, and I think that's why I stumbled into it under such specific circumstances... and yes, Gogglebox is a terrible stain upon modern humanity.

Never had a problem with Aoife's voice, but understand that regional accents can be an issue for many. I guess that's the beauty of YouTube; anybody can talk about anything!

@Rudy_Manchego Yeah, my Netflix account has been abandoned for weeks whilst I've been watching Eurogamer, to the point where I feel like I'm now "behind" with it somehow...?! Weird feeling. I think finding one or two great, reliable content creators and sticking with them would be key. My best friend tries to watch a broader range of folks, but some just end up disappointing her (most recently, Angry Joe, who I've briefly watched before and, mercifully, he just isn't for me).
