Let’s Play… What, exactly?
Okay, I think it’s safe to assume that nobody’s watching my Let’s Play anymore. That’s fine. It’s my fault for not making it entertaining enough for people to watch. But I don’t want to give up the whole Let’s Play scene entirely, so I’m gonna see if the problem is with the game.
If you genuinely do want to continue watching me play through Unreal, let me know. Otherwise I’m going to try to find another game to do an LP of.
Current potential candidates include:
1: MDK 2. Like I mentioned in the last LP episode, I just got the game recently and I played through some of the first level. It seems fun, and it actually has a story so it’ll probably be less boring to watch. It seems to basically be a third person shooter/platformer. It’s pretty whimsical and goofy, and the story seems to play out in a sort of comic book style. Let me know if it interests you.
2: Minecraft. I’m given to understand that Minecraft is currently the most “watched” game on Youtube. Apparently people really like to watch other people mine and craft. And I can understand why. It ought to be interesting to see different people’s different motivations to play the game, as well as their building methods and architectural design. However, I’m not much of a builder, so I’ve got ideas other than building a great big monument or castle.
For example: With the guns mod I have installed, I’m tempted to start from scratch and see how long it takes to construct all the guns necessary to roleplay as an FPS protagonist. So, let’s say, a desert eagle, shotgun, AK47, sniper rifle and rocket launcher. This would mostly involve digging for piles and piles of iron, and a few other materials (like diamonds for the sniper scope). Alternatively, I could roleplay as Rico Rodriguez from Just Cause 2 by constructing a gun, a parachute and a grappling hook. Though the grappling hook in the Minecraft mod is not nearly as useful as the one in JC2.
3: Terraria. This game isn’t as popular as Minecraft, but I would say it’s certainly as interesting. It gives you about as much sense of direction as Minecraft, but there’s a lot more diversity in enemies, environments, items and abilities, so it might be interesting for both you and me if I make a new character and a new world, and record myself starting from scratch and building up a town of NPC salesmen.
I’m sure there are more potential games I have and can’t think of at the moment. (I have a ton of Steam games, many of which I’ve hardly played. I think I’m nearing 200 of them.) Anyway, let me know what you think! Also, any criticism on how I could run my Let’s Play better beyond what game to show off would be very much appreciated.
