I've honestly never found any enjoyement watching Let's Play videos, outside of seeing the first minutes of a game that hasn't released in order to get me hyped. (But a full walkthrough?! C'mon!).

 

I love speedruns, because the dude playing has to challenge himself into knowing every single secret the game can behold, and exploit it into his advantage. Watching a video of a dude beating Dark Souls 2 under 25 minutes is fun. Watching a Let's Play of about thirty hours of a dude dying over and over and being completely clueless is not.


You liked that video? I found it quite boring, cause it was all based on glitches.


There's different kinds of speedruns. Generally, any% allows glitch-exploiting since that's in-game gameplay that anyone can do, if skilled enough. There's also the ALL BOSSES speedrun in two hours, which is awesome as well.


I know, I was just talking about that particular video (and "glitch-running" in general). I prefer "legit" speed-running.

Holy shit! That's even better than Let's Plays! Do you realize what this means? Fan movies! Like the Legend of Zelda movie "The Hero of Time" a few years back that Nintendo forced a takedown of, or the Metroid fan movie project that Nintendo canceled the kickstarter for, "Metroid: Enemies Within" I think it was called. And who knows what else! Fan made projects for Nintendo stuff is going to start popping up everywhere, and the really good stuff will get endorsed! Just imagine if someone makes a really good fan movie and on top of being awesome, Nintendo puts it in theaters so more people can see it!

I find that completely acceptable. I know people who can't stand glitched speedruns because they tend to consider them "cheating". As for me, I love both, so I have more to enjoy!



Dude, there's going to be a fan made Mother 4 released soon: http://kotaku.com/fan-made-mother-4-delayed-still-looks-awesome-1658115909

And now Nintendo won't even attack it, they might endorse it and it could get published! Just think of the possibilities!

There was a remake of Metroid II, Another Metroid 2 Remake: http://metroid2remake.blogspot.com/

Now imagine if it got endorsed by Nintendo, and officially licensed as a Metroid game? We'd have an official Metroid II remake! Games that deserve this kind of treatment that Nintendo just overlooks could get fan remakes and Nintendo could endorse them!



Glad to see they finally got past their archaic polices about Youtube. Microsoft and Sony have been using Youtube to their advantage for awhile now, getting Youtubers to play your game is basically free promotion. Well not free since you still have to pay each Youtuber who plays it (usually $1 per 1k views, sometime more), but it should be much cheaper than tv advertising and is likely more effective too.

It completely depends on who's doing the playthrough for me. If I like their their manerism and the way they speak, and if it's funny, then I can enjoy watching a playthough, whether it's a game I have played before or not. Even watching someone die over and over can be funny in that case.
That said, I pretty much only enjoy playthroughs from The Rad Brad and Maximillian Dood so far. The former for new games I'm interested in, and the latter mostly for when he's playing through older games I've already played. They're nice to watch some times as I'm eating dinner. I rarely watch them all the way to the end though. I've tried watching other playthrough players as well, but I tend to lose interest very fast. So generally I don't like watching them, but there are some exceptions.



This is more just them backtracking on the "we own all revenue from videos made from our games" thing.



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

Exactly... gaming is(should be ) about interactivity. If I get stuck I read a walktrough< I dont want a video to spoil the fun. And most of the presenters are childish and boring, with the sense of humor of a gorilla with a hammer :|



Vote the Mayor for Mayor!

Nintendo never claimed copyright on my videos, so I'm not sure how widespread this problem was in the first place.

Good. we dont need "parasites" feeding of other peoples work. If you do create quality conent there is no reason why you should not get some piece of the cake for promoting the games.
