I have 11 subscribers and my most viewed video is the uploaded OST of a game, sitting at 2,441 views. XD Yay... I guess? Would be absolutely great if I had that many views on something that was MINE. X3

The first video I uploaded has 11 thousand views. Not only is it complete shit, Youtube was like a year old, and I was a kid, like I was still in middle school, or maybe early high school. Somewhere between 7th and 9th grade.

I'm afraid most of my Youtube subscriptions are for badly produced black metal and horrible noise music I'm into, but there is some gaming content therein.

As for youtubers. I watch:

A Jolly Wanker

His stuff shouldn't be that funny, I mean anyone can post some gameplay footage of purposefully silly mods and superimpose some badly formatted text onto the screen. But somehow AJW's comedic timing, economy on "memespeak" and considerate editing makes it hilarious.

I've often thought about getting into the LP and Stream stuff. I have a lot of friends who could help me out as a large portion of the people I know I've met through following streamers/LPers on Twitter and streams but always get that little bit of social anxiety that stops me from fully committing.

this pretty much

i've always wanted to be a speedrunner with a sorta popular twitch channel, i take anxiety meds so it's not too much of an issue

i guess the only issue with me is trying to gain a following on twitch

Never gotten the fascination for streaming... It seems just rather annoying to me. >.> Like, there'd always be the constant fear of messing up mid-stream, or something really weird happening that you didn't want anyone to know about like that time a cat almost literally scratched some girl's eye out during a stream. There's also the need to be talking ALL the time (sounds draining...), no editing, everything is raw. And then you gotta make sure you have a decent internet connection, and depending on how many subscribers you have, you could piss a bunch of people off because you can only stream when they're asleep. I guess it's alright for Q&A sessions, but gaming and stuff? Oof. I would 100% rather recording. And as a viewer, I usually can't make it to streams. And some times the recorded stream is extremely hard to understand, especially if a chat isn't provided in the recorded window. It's also really long, and eh, boring I guess? There's also a bunch of silly other things like technical difficulties, interruptions, the occasional 'you suck' viewer. It feels so pressuring and blagh. >.<

X3 But that's all just my opinion. I know HEAPS of people love streaming. I just don't really understand why. I've weighed the pros and cons and the cons are abundant. XD

Couldn't agree more!

 

The only kind of streaming I can watch is the live news broadcast on TV...

I'll agree that anyone could do videos of the silliest mods on this side of the internet, I'd do one if I had the time. But AJW's style, which I consider minimalistic in terms of commentary, makes it hilarious. He simply lets the mods do the talking (or screaming in some cases) with him sprinkling a bit of his sarcasm in text.

I'm probably not interesting enough to try streaming myself. The only streams I watch are Ross' streams (of course), HelixSnake's and very old Yogscast streams.

I much prefer reviewing channels like LGR and Accursed Farms, and for me in order to gain any kind of enjoyment from a playthrough-style channel it's absolutely vital that I like the personality and/or humour of the individual running it. I never watch live streaming "live" so to speak, only after it's been uploaded afterwards.

I never liked to watch live streaming "live" mainly because my net here wouldn't handle it. The 1st time I went to one of Ross's live videochats, I'd keep lagging in intervals, 10 seconds at best. The longest lag time I got was 5 minutes. Another reason was time. In the case of the videochats, 4pm EST is around 4am from where I am, which is why I appreciate the idea of being able to leave questions in the replies in Ross's videochat announcement thread.

 

I've never completed a playthrough at all. For playthroughs that are segmented into parts like with Game Grumps, i'd usually watch 5-10 episodes depending on the game, or if i'm interested in what Arin, Danny, Jon, Ross etc. were talking about.

I'm constantly watching a stream or an LP. It's kind of become my substitute to TV since nothing on TV besides Archer and GoT really interest me. I also like talking to the people in chat and sometimes the Streamer will jump in to conversations while playing the game which is also really fun.

I'm with you here, about the benefits of Youtube over shitty television listings.

Doing great, LPing Pokemon LeafGreen Nuzlocke, still working on the first episode (editing stage). I have halve of the 2nd episode recorded. I was inspired by TFS to give LPing another try (and starting with PLGN)

I've been doing alright, nothing really new going on in my life.

 

Also I've been thinking, does Accursed Farms have a Discord server yet? It'd kinda be cool to set one up for the forum community and to use it to play games or whatever together.

@ Jeb: How nice of you to ask :3

 

Work has been a bit of a ball-ache, what with all the refitting and general shifting around of shelves and stock that has been going on this month, but my resolution this year was to stop complaining about my job so much. Other than that, I've discovered a lot of excellent music, books and art recently - so I'm pretty good!
