I think you guys are a bit too harsh. I'm not really the sort of person who pays attention to the description or to the credits unless the video gives me a heads up while it's playing. People are still bound to ask the same question over and over again, no matter how well you try to present the information itself.

 

Nothing you can really do about it, it's pretty normal, people sometimes have their focus in different places, when approaching something for the first time, so they might miss out on some key info, even if it's right in their face. Maybe they lack the context, or they don't understand the meaning of what you told them just yet, until they are done with what they are watching, or playing.

I can see your point.

It's more that people have a question, and don't even consider the possibility that the creator might have used the description to preemptively answer it. Even when that question is as major as "Who besides you contributed to the video's content?" and credits are a well-established thing in our society.

 

To some extent this is YouTube's fault. From day one, they've considered the video descriptions so unimportant that they've been mostly-hidden by default. (And no other site does that. Not DeviantArt, not Newgrounds, not even Imgur which 99% of the time is just used to rehost other people's pictures for hotlinking elsewhere.) So people get in the habit of not even thinking about them. There are a number of ways in which YouTube is staggeringly backward, and this is one of the bigger ones.

 

Anyway. Great episode. Like everyone else I'm surprised that you went to the trouble of having the game modded (well, custom-mapped) just for something so simple, but I guess we're all still used to the days when you didn't have the resources to do anything fancier than holster your weapon and noclip your way up a short wall. I'm guessing there are going to be more moments like this in store down the line.

 

Which brings up a good question: Were there any moments in the first series where you wanted to do something fancy like that but had to do without?
