To LPers: Why did you start?

Post by SNESkelly on Fri Jun 03, 2011 3:02 pm

It's an unusual hobby to have, let's be honest. It's also very satisfying, as I have found in my short LPing career so far.
So why did you start making LPs?

I really just wanted something to do to kill time, since I'm home all of the time. Lately, merely playing video games has gotten boring. I find it much more entertaining when I'm actually talking while playing a game. Plus I was mainly inspired by NintendoCapriSun.

I just wanted to play games, share what I had to say and show games those would otherwise not be able to play.

I was introduced by some people and I got inspired, games are something I've always loved so I loved LPing.

I found Let's Play by pure coincidence on YouTube, I didn't even know such a thing existed. I remember my first LP video I saw was from NintendoCapriSun, and his openness in his commentary inspired me to start making them too, even though I have never used editing software.

Nostalgia comes to that, haha!
I was inspired by a guy named MysticPenguinLover/MPL.
I already had a channel with over 400 subscribers, so I thought my viewers would hate them, as I previously did animations on this channel.
I made a video asking my viewers if they'd like me to LP videos, and I told
them to look at MPL's videos. They commented saying "Yeah, totally" etc.
So I started.

Coincidentally, my friend, who's now my really close friend, PseudoKlassic (the guy above my post) was beginning to LP too, and to this date, we're always watching eachother's LPs.

Thanks MPL. Smile

(sorry for the long post :3)

I just wanted an excuse to talk to myself without sounding weird.

That is a semi-serious answer to be honest. It really helps me practice talking in general, to the point where my social skills off the internet has improved considerably. I think everyone who starts let's playing is inspired by a mixture of all the reasons stated in the above posts, but for me that something that stands out is definitely the commentary.

What made me start: Dunno honestly, perhaps it was the fact that I wanted to share my opinions on things I knew alot about, games, so I LP'd stuff to give my full review of it, plus my thoughts and reactions to the game, pretty much live.

Honestly, I just did it because I really loved making videos but I hated the type of videos I was doing before (Animation) So I watched a few LPers and thought it would be quite fun, didn't think I would fall in love with it Very Happy

I originally started as a small channel that uploaded "how-to's" for Blue Dragon on accelerated leveling and so forth. I eventually made a new channel which was TheVGReviewer in which I did another how to level guide for Disgaea 3 and all prize bubbles guide for Little Big Planet.

I eventually stopped that channel due to some issues and remade my image as the VarietyGamer and a new channel just recently VarietyLP.

I do LP's so that I can track my gaming progress while allowing others to enjoy it.
