Now thanks to the internet a lot of unreleased games have become available that we can now enjoy. My current favorite is Star Fox 2. What is yours?

Let's plays are the laziest form of videomaking on youtube, next to pickups. Originality and a script will help your content improve. This is not the best way to get people to watch your channel.

I also hate Let's Play videos. And I don't think I've ever played an unreleased game before.

BS Out of Bounds Golf. Wrote a review for it over 4 years ago. Not a lot of people knew about this game then... those I've since introduced the game to have all said the same thing: the game is super fun and interesting. They may not be as crazy about it as me, but I've never heard one bad thing said about this game. Check it out if you haven't already.

4 player mini-golf on the SNES. With the evil ability to knock your opponents' balls out of bounds. Doesn't get much better than that.

I've only played a few, most of them though tend to have Japanese releases though so technically they are. I mean Nintendo did have a rough translation of FF2 Famicom that's passable, then the original Earthbound(Mother) which was done and tanked, and there is Star Fox 2 as well which was basically done but never released anywhere. I've played those and a few others while the names escape me, but SF2 would be my total favorite and Earthbound as rough as it is is a fine game too albeit slow to get going. FF2 isn't bad but I'd rather handle it on the GBA 1+2 package.

Rant and opinion videos are the laziest actually. Most successful channels do the least work also. This is not a let's play this is a longplay with information on the game and commentary. I only used my video to show if nobody knows about the game. Everyone else's videos have poor video capture and I feel mine shows the best possible footage of the game that can be recorded in HD. I could care less if people watch but until I find a better source of material for my topics I will continue to use my own videos as a reference.

They also make for a good alternative to Gamefaqs walkthrus. The only bad LP's are the ones where the player talks so much or so loud it drowns out the game audio.

Good point about Let's Play. They do have some value, depending how they're shot. If someone just introduces it, then shuts their trap and plays it so you can hear the audio while seeing the game get played it has value as a visual game faq walkthrough, but when someone just keeps crapping on about random junk or even the game, they need to just be purged from the internet.

I agree with that to a certain extent. When a person is playing a game and sharing information that is relatable to the game or tips and tricks I usually enjoy watching. But if some bozo is just talking about what he had for lunch while playing I am not very interested in watching then. If people just want gameplay they should stick to longplays since most of them have no commentary. I usually prefer commentary when somebody is explaining how they are doing something in some games for a reason. But it is all up to the viewer. Whatever cremes your twinkie. Luckily there are so many videos online you will more than likely find what you are looking for at least.

I'm not sure if it's Let's Play or Long Play videos that I hate, or if it's really the subculture of people who act like they've played games because they've watched videos of or about them. They're so intertwined that I have trouble separating my feelings. I just hate it when I hear people talking about how much they love or hate a game or how hard it was when they've never really played them first hand. A person may be able to glean if a game looks intriguing or not by these videos, but I hate it when they try to make fully-formed opinions by parroting what they saw. They perpetuate one another, and now you have a fairly large group of vocal people spouting off about games and never playing any.

That's false. The channels I watch put in work and you can tell. Anybody and their mother can film themselves playing and talking about a videogame. Lets play or long play it's the same damn thing. I suggest taking a look at Gaming Historians retrospective on Star Fox, to know how quality videos are made.

If I get stuck in a game without being able to progress then I'll just turn the sucker off and deem it not worth playing. It's real easy for me to lose interest nowadays. If a game requires a faq then it's not for me.

You could care less if people watch? Stop lying.

Because this is not the stone age where I tell a story and you imagine what a game looks like. I provide a video of game footage so people can better understand what I am talking about if they have never seen the game. Just because everyone else lacks visual aides does not mean it is the best way.

Anybody can record but not everyone can record and capture the best game footage and actually have worthwhile things to say while playing a game. As for the Gaming Historian he is great if you want to fall asleep or remember the days of high school when you had a teacher so boring you would need caffeine to pay attention in class. If you are really looking for quality content try Game Sack they are actually entertaining and informative not some monotone video game librarian.

You must be from the generation that thinks trying is too hard and expect someone else to solve your problems if you quit playing a game because you lack the skill or intelligence to progress. You are missing out on a lot of great games and experiences with that mentality.

I do not do this for a living. This is a hobby so no I do not care in the least if I get 0 views. I do these videos for my own entertainment and if somebody else enjoys them great if not there is plenty of other content to dislike on YouTube instead.

So us ancient forumtards are lacking because we don't have a hd camera and don't constantly post lame-lazy videos to try and get ad revenue?

This is a retrogame forum, everybody here knows of Starfox 2 and what it looks like. Bring something new to the table.

Gaming Historians stuff is far from boring, it certainly blows anything you've done out of the water. Let's compare your Starfox 2 videos. I like how you're dissing other youtubers with better content than you. GameSack? Don't make me laugh. Joe is an egomaniac and the other guy couldn't read a script to save his life. Talk about falling asleep, it's like these guys read through every retro magazine and copy and paste reviews into their videos.

I would not label everyone on the forum as ignorant as yourself but you never know what is out there. It really is just a preference as I said to supply more than just words to support a topic.

If Star Fox 2 is not obscure enough how about this one?

See that is what your problem is. You do not know what you want. You complain you want a more obscure game and I give you one. You then want me to do "something" with a game but not play it, talk about it, or show footage of it. I guess that is why you only troll about on forums because heaven forbid you see a picture or video related to a video game you might just lose it. You are a unfortunate soul that must be a glutton for punishment if you are on a gaming forum and do not want to see or talk about games.

How about this then?

The problem is droning on about stuff as you're kind of doing a Let's Play going by what you said earlier. I hate those things. I don't care about some monotone discussion or pithy garbage being prattled on about so if I get into the stuff I'll go into the Long Play where it's just the game with a nice tall cool glass of STFU by the player. :) As far as production value goes, none of them as far as I'm concerned with retro gaming have much at all. Sure someone figured out how to use dreamweaver nicer than the next dude, whoopdeedoo. My idea of some nice production values where the effort shows, go watch the growth within the 3 seasons of the Epic Rap Battles of History as that's crazy how far they've come. Sure it's not gaming, well they did do the Wright Bros versus the Super Mario Bros, but that's about it.

Seeing games is fine, talking about them is fine too, but I think he doesn't want to hear someone rattling on about overly discussed junk in a video any clown could have done who had a boring afternoon. Do some research, get some obscure if not new information no one else has presented, throw that up into a digestible format and you'll find a lot less bitching about more of the same.

Homebrew videos aren't that interesting either, at least to most. Few know those things exist, but there are so few and far between that don't just blow and don't even have the quality to pass as a LJN atrocity of the 1980s NES. Usually a fair many of them much like the released prototypes tend to get a mass market version but initially are done as limited numbered runs to pound peoples wallets up front if not worse on the after market.

You make a lot of valid points. I agree and for most titles I research and share any information I found interesting or did not know about a game and share it in my videos. Since I am an average gamer I figure many other average gamers may not have known about what I learned.

As for homebrews I only make videos of ones that are well above LJN quality and actually stand out.

I know you do not watch any videos posted but if you did see them you would understand I am not just your typical flap jack screaming nonsense when playing a game. I am working on a good balance of gameplay and informative banter and until I perfect it I will just have to keep working on it. I personally find no commentary boring for most games especially ones I want to learn tips and tricks on. I do still watch longplays but not as much due to that fact.

The thing about so many videos is that the research is all coming from the same sources. Most of Game Sack's info comes straight from Wikipedia. Joe has said exactly that himself. There is very little going on in the way of finding old games that haven't been done to death, exploring little-discussed modes, or finding research info from different perspectives like old regional magazines or fanzines. Not only that, but the same kind of hyperbole tends to be used to laud or damn games in order to create sensationalized entertainment instead of honest perspective.

That said, I like Game Sack. I can't say I've learned anything, but I find it to be a fun retrospective. The only other channel I really like is Happy Console Gamer, as it is less of a review show and more of a reminiscence, and feels like a conversation with a friend about old times. It's not so much informative as it is comfort food, but I like it for what feels like honesty.

What I do agree with FieryReign about is that there is merit to using language to describe and discuss games. Good communication skills do more to relate perspective and create provocative imagery than the blunt force of footage. Footage is great and all, but it is not a replacement for creative communication. They should go hand in hand.

I've been a gamer for a long time, but I've never been one to research much outside of the basics that relate to my actual gaming experiences.

For me, the sweet spot for gaming shows is a combination of personality and interesting information. It's why I really love Game Sack, Turbo Views and Lazy Game Reviews (non-Sims stuff anyway). I learn stuff, and I really enjoy their delivery and production. There's humor and quirk but almost zero profanity or angst.

Yeah, the angsty stuff is annoying.

I haven't done a ton of research, but I was fortunate enough to grow up around what used to be a ton of great game stores. Until the best, last one shut down a couple of years ago, I never really had to buy online, even for imports. Like my PC-FX, I ran across it at that last awesome store several years ago, and I wasn't familiar with it, but he had a boxed one with a spare controller and Battle Heat and Team Innocent. He hooked it up for me to try, and I bought the whole lot. Just a fortunate experience that taught me something new. I miss that place.

You are a fool to think it is easy. You have no clue how much is involved in putting out content. If you want to know what is easy it is criticizing other people on a forum without any clue of what you are talking about. If people want your advice they will ask for it so stop volunteering.

Not giving advice, just sayin your channel sucks and to stop spamming it everywhere. Strike a nerve did I? Why don't you respond to the others who say you're nothing but a spamwhore with useless videos?

He's right ya know, no one likes a blatant spam whore. It wouldn't be so bad if you started real topics that just happen to have a video in them. But you're posting click bait titles for threads that contain a single line of worthless text and a video plug. Plus literally no one here knows you. You are a walking billboard and it makes for a TERRIBLE first impression.

You want to film yourself playing games? Fine, I understand that: it's fun to do. But Let's Plays are some of the least respected video content out there (next to unboxings and pickup videos). Make them for yourself and as you improve (assuming you strive to improve and not wallow in arrogant self satisfaction) other people will come to appreciate your work. The best way to grow a Lets Play channel is to reach out to other Lets Players. Forget plugging on random forums. Literally no one here is going to give a shit. Once you start watching other people's content and being supportive to other channels then your enthusiasm will be reciprocated.

So some serious advice? Quit ramming these topics down our throats. Stick around DP if you want to discuss gaming, but join another community for your videos altogether. Honestly try reddit. /r/LetsPlay is a friendly channel that won't eat you alive.

You are right you are not giving advice. You are just an ignorant person looking to attack anybody for your own selfish reasons. I only responded because you gave your opinion on other channels and I gave my opinion on them. Somebody just crying stop spamming is nobody worth responding to. Now that I know you are just another one of those babies I have no need to respond anymore.

Attacking the person does not actually refute an opinion. (http://i.imgur.com/NdHHKPQ.jpg) In fact, it reminds me of an old Chinese proverb: "The first one to throw a punch, is the first one to admit he lost the argument."


Go ahead and continue to be the spammeister of lame let's play videos. You're only putting people off with your tactics, and gaining no more views.

This, I mostly agree with. Not about the videos being lame, but the "putting people off with your tactics" part. Perhaps moving it all into a single thread, with the first post listing and linking to the videos and where commenting on each began in the thread, would ease that perception? It would also keep things nice & neat. ;) People who are interested can check in on the videos and leave their thoughts about the game.

*cough* IF they're good, like that 2D homebrew Portal game made for the DS, they're interesting to me.

I agree. Moving to a single thread would be much neater and easier. Do not know why I did not think of that in the first place. Thanks for the input.

I always wanted to do an in depth review on some retro games but it seemed the majority of them have been covered so I never got around to doing one for quite some time. Over the years I always found it hard to find much info online or in videos covering the Destruction Derby series so I decided to give it a shot and add to the gaming community. What is your favorite game in the series or in general? This is my first review video so any feedback is greatly appreciated thanks in advance.

You have a video thread, but posted your video both here and in import mania. Gaming videos in the KWKBOX's video thread.

Anyway, to reply to the question, I'd ditch Holy Diver (just too aggravating, derivative, and unfair) and replace it with:

Robocco Wars
Cocoron
Moon Crystal
Ninja Jajamaru Ginga Daisakusen
Mitsume ga Tooru
Tetrastar
Hebereke
Over Horizon
Gimmick! (though also frustrating)

The last three were released in other regions, but for people in North America, all the above would be imports all the same.

Plus a slew of FDS-only titles can be thrown in as well.

I was considering those, but neither of them would reach my top ten.
