"Let's Play" gameplay tips?

Post by Bob Vegana »

So here's my "Let's Play" ->

Any ideas to improve the quality of the gameplay and commentary so that viewers could easily get into this?

Try to fake your accent, Russian-like accents are totally not funny (no offense, I've got a similar accent).

You might wanna base your LPs on fun rather than being serious if you know what I mean. Fun is what most viewers are looking for.

Quit that game. Seriously, it's been made in 2000; Nobody wants to play most (but not all, e.g. CS) old games, let alone watch people play them.

Be faster. Don't spend ages explaining and discussing, just play.

In addition to the last one, if you're willing to spend time editing, then do something good and cut out the boring parts. Don't add funky faces and sounds like in JB clips (ask yourself, does any youtuber use as many as you do?).

Improvement or downfall?

I decided to ignore this hint, though.

I tried to pull of other hints here, and accent thingy...Hard, when fast-talking.

Whether I am going to continue watching some dude play a game, is decided in the first 5 seconds. The moment I hear his voice and it's just not pleasant to hear I close it. Idk how you can change this though, but there are ways to make your voice sound alot more pleasant.
Ayyyylmaooooo

Definitely improvement, well done Hunie.
I personally enjoy your accent in this video way more then in the last one, though you might wanna consult with other people on this one.
Tip two is like tip four.
That game easily gets boring. Ask yourself, do any other youtubers play similar games (not counting normal racing of course)?
Absolutely improvement for point four (and two). In the last video you used to spend ages talking and doing nothing, you've fixed it and it really improved quality.
I like what you did with editing, but it seems a tad too kitschy. Not a too big con and that's only my opinion though.

Define me your "pleasant", please. What do pleasant "let's players" sound like?

This guy did a long series of this game.

While he sounded really boring in his videos (just like me in episode #01), he after all got positive feedback from viewers.

cut the crap, start with the gameplay directly. Try not to destroy peoples ears in the first 5 seconds, it tends to make people ragequit your video and curse you. Be more dynamic in your way of talking, you talk to slow in my opinion.

Edit: forgot to say something positive, the cons are the thing you are looking for i figured. I think it is nice enough though for a first try.
