Man the main thing is just to have fun with it (its a lot harder to become popular on youtube if your black however)

If your doing it for money it can get tedious trying to come up with new content 24.7

You have to be an above average gamer and know what your talking about.

Hmm well ive been pc gaming since i was 10... Ive played all the major MMO's. I got a ton of games. And in WoW i was in a top 200 raiding guild for a whole expansion.

Im a decent gamer. But is there something wrong with the average gamer commenting on games?

Curious.

Good looks man, ive seen some black dudes come up. For example smoove who used to do NBA 2k videos strictly and branched out after his partnership. Im not even trying to be a famous player. I just wanna make videos for fun.

Don't be trying to impress other people, you will be stuck on what to say. Just say exatly what comes to mind and don't hold back anything. Don't give a F and see it ppl like it

imo if your not a Professional gamer' i think long as ur funny and pay attention to the comments n ppl who sub you'll start to build up a fanbase, you could also do giveaways n sh*t.



his commentary is hilarious because he gets frustrated on those damn iwbtg fangames

No its not anything wrong with the average gamer but when it cames to commentary they need to know what there talking about. Have you watched the SF4 EVO tournament were Diago got perfected the commentary for that was good cause they knew the ends and outs the game. The first time I seen that it was like they was speaking a foreign language and thats what made it good. I dont wanna hear commentary form a person who's never picked up a controller or dont even own a console. Feel me?

The one's I watch, I like the honesty factor. I feel like they keeping it real, not playin something they don't want to play just for views, not playing under certain settings just because it's cool. Not trying to sound like a professional, just laid back dudes basically sh*t talking while playing the game. I haven't released any videos yet, but my biggest issue comes in, I'm a lot better doing it live, but I don't have the luxury of being able to do it live, it's a lot less sh*t that comes to the mind recording your voice over your footage, than while you're actually wrapped up into the game.

But coming from a youtube partner(not to toot my own horn) just stick with it no matter what you're doing. People will leave negativity no matter what, it'll be a long process gaining a steady following, and then they will expect you to do sh*t how they want it done. But just be consistent in your posts and be free in terms of doing whatever you want to do, even if that's making a troll video just to generate views(like almost all of us has done a few times) gotta play the game to win, not be nice.(game=youtube in that sense)

Dude's voice annoys the hell out of me and he runs one saying in the ground the entire time. I just worked on a commentary and listened to it myself (Won't be posting) but I sound like I could be a dope commentator, Just my Opinion. I'mma try to work on a nice gameplay tonight so I can hopefully have a commentary up tomorrow and get some feed from you guys.

Just be funny and entertaining. I think I could do it, my voice isn't annoying and I'm always going into hilarious rants when I play 2k. COuld of done it for 2k11 last year, although I would have to edit the parts where I threw my controller.
