I don't know. I almost always read the plot of the movie before I watch it, and I still enjoy it. I also watched at least 4 playthroughs of the first Silent Hill before I played it myself, and I still really enjoyed it.

I'm willing to bet you would've enjoyed it even more if you didn't watch playthroughs. Maybe it'll be more scary that way.

Horror games don't really scare me. I play them more for the atmosphere. In fact, that's how I decide which games I want to get. I watch videos to see how the games look.

of course it doesn't scare you, it's because you've watch the spoilers!!!

Even for horror games that I didn't watch before playing, like Outlast, didn't scare me.

Congratulations, I guess.

Seriously though, I never said everyone thinks that way. I said your overall experience diminishes if you know all the spoilers. To say that is not true is a lie. I do not believe you..

Same. I've never had a game/movie/book ruiend for me for knowing some, if not all of the plot beforehand. Hell Sometimes I ask a few of my friends what the plot is all about, rather than constantly diving into everything and not knowing if it will be garbage or not, I'd rather know how good the plot is going to be in order to gain interest. 

I watched Jacksepticeye playing Night in the Woods from start to finish and watching him was what got me interested in buying and playing the game.

They don't scare me either, yet half the fun is gone on a second playthrough. I hardly ever replay games if I already know what is going to happen. I even found unlocking the map in BotW too much of a spoiler so stopped using the towers. Spoiler free reviews are enough to decide on games for me, I want to be surprised and make my own discoveries while playing. Take a chance, be surprised, it's fun going in blind.

Good for them. Protecting me from being spoiled.

No. You are wrong. Not everyone thinks that way. I decide if I want to spoil information about a movie/game etc. or not. Example: I still haven't watch Star Wars 7. I'm waiting for all 3 films to be complete. Then buy the boxset. Guess what: I decided I didn't care if I read some spoilers. I know Han dies, and why. Still buying the movies, once all 3 are done.

Congratulations, I guess.

If i knew Han Solo was going to die before I watch the movie I won't be shocked and surprised when it happens no matter how many times I rewatch it.

I'm still gonna love watching the film. Regardless if a major point is spoiled by me. I still haven't watched episode 3. But, I sure know about how it ended. With all the memes and jokes, with high ground. And NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I don't rely on being shocked and surpised, to enjoy a movie. The overall experience is what I like. Half the time, I guess endings of movies. While I'm watching it. A lot movies and shows plaster too many clues. A person talks about a collar on the cat, in Men in black. And the movie bothers to show that scene. Guess where orion's belt was...

Is there any proof at all that playthroughs lower sales of games?

Certainly there are people who bragged about having watched TLOU on Youtube, I also personally know people who do it.

probably xbox fans, why brag about not having played the greatest game of all time?

But it's not a very good game

Luckily you can watch it as a 6 hour movie instead of burdening yourself with having to hold a controller to click through to the next cutscene

Playing games is hard work, luckily you can simply watch them for free nowadays while eating chips or popcorn and having a drink or do other things with your hands while watching the water drying physics of Nier Automata for example. You also have someone telling you what to think while watching the game to take the hard work of forming your own opinion off you hands as well.
