hi, rather unfortunate that you would get me, super joe, the hero of the fsa, as your introduction to other people, on this internet web forum. anyway, what's the allure of "let's plays"? fundamentally, i don't understand it. but i won't be rude, or do irony about it at this juncture.

thatshelby died.

May his outtards rest in pieces.
For a moment I thought that was going to link to a post where he announces his departure from the forums.

No such luck.

That's pretty rude

Narcissism, dreams of stardom. Allure, bravado. The desire to feel wanted.

There are two basic camps of Let's Play. The first camp believes that the purpose of Let's Play is to illuminate the beauty and joy within the video games that mean the most to them, and the player is but a means to that end. These are usually pretty alright.

The second camp believes that the purpose of Let's Play is to illuminate how interesting and entertaining of a person they are, and the game is but a means to that end. These are almost uniformly terrible.

Unfortunately, the former breed of LPer is more-or-less dead nowadays, so what you see today is mainly dull, self-absorbed tripe that really is quite pointless.

ElectricalBeast is really the only decent LPer. And I'm talking about his SM64 videos, not the Minecraft bullshit -- the dude is hilarious. Retsupurae only made him less funny, which is saying something (though they still have to be given credit for introducing the Internet at large to the guy, so I guess it balances out in the end.)

I think the biggest problem LPers have is that they think they have to be talking every damn second of the video, even when there's nothing to be talking about. Also the fact that most of them have horrible voices, and the other fact that I generally don't want commentary (especially if it's usually along the lines of "OH SHIT" or "okay and here we have to do...") over videos of games and I'd rather just listen to the actual game audio/music. Annotated videos strike a good balance though.

I look for "Longplay" videos instead of Let's Plays because I don't like listening to a dude talking over the video. Annotations are brilliant because they encourage the writer to be succinct and only interrupt when they have something genuinely important to say.

Don't they make FPS games that don't feature regenerating health? I guess the last FPS I played was Metroid Prime 3, though, so I guess I'm totally out of the loop on that genre.

Regenerating Health bugs me less than making the player stand around and listen to dudes talking before you can open a door. Have some decency and give the player something to do while people are talking to them. If the player can clear the content faster than the scene can play, be prepared with a witty exclamation from the person talking complimenting them on how skilled they are. The less time the player spends waiting, the better the game is.

It kind of makes me want to get a griz coat. The only thing stopping me is that there is literally no situation whatsoever where I would wear it. But it looks really cool!
