GameZone's Mike Fischer gives his opinion on what the top five video games to watch on YouTube are.
Don't necessarily agree with these. I agree with Minecraft for for different reasons. I don't watch it on YouTube for the stories, I was for the creations. How are there no MMORPGs on the list and no League of Legends?
I thought games were made to be played? This is not very constructive. Below, no. Why would I watch a game I wanted to play. Watching will never be as good as playing. Maybe after I have played the game I would watch someone else play.
Yea, games are meant to be played. I didn't write this lol. But don't you ever watch videos of a game on Youtube. Like cool kills and stuff?
The reason why I didn’t include MMO’s on the list is because this top five is strictly single player experiences. If I had done the list with Multiplayer in mind, it would have shooters and MMO’s. I would also have included the creation side of Minecraft, but that is mostly done in the multiplayer.
To be honest the story of cathering intrigues me. The gameplay with the puzzles anoys the shit out of me. Having said that i will be to busy playing other games than to watch one on youtube. But its an intersting idea.
I only watch Minecraft to see creations Its very boring to watch a person play a game
Good list. I agree for the most part. I'll start playing Catherine tomorrow, but after playing the demo, I feel like I would get a kick out of watching someone else play. Also, why no Limbo? =P
Haha, I see you’re a fellow Limbo fan. I honestly didn't even think to add Limbo on to the list. But, I don't regret not putting it on the list.
An interesting list. I can kind of understand watching a game if there's a particularly good story, but the gameplay isn't your cup of tea. Or if it's a system exclusive that you can't play - I've watched some Heavy Rain and Uncharted in YouTube to see what I'm missing, but definitely not the whole games.
i've watched a few walkthroughs and let's plays on youtube. mostly to see the story, though let's plays are entertaining for the commentary the player gives, one guy tobuscus, his real name is toby, he's funny as hell, he totally mental but funny. ^_^ i'll watch a walkthrough for a game i get stuck on, and i want to see the end of it. i'd definitely give catherine a watch, the game looks cool but i just didn't like the block climbing puzzle bit, and that seems to be most of the actual gameplay portion of the game. and with adventure games like the back to the future series it's fun to watch the story unfold, kind of like watching a movie. best to watch those after you've played the game though. though i did watch a walkthrough of the longest journey, great game, great story, but some of the solutions to the puzzles were a bit out there. and i got stuck, a lot, i started just watching it for solutions to the puzzles, but then i just watched it for the story. some of the later solutions are really involved, like the one with the potion mixing. at least now i can play through dreamfall having got all the story from the longest journey.
A good companion article to this would be good games to watch other people play. Like in a group setting. Something that gets viewers involved/engaged without them grabbing for the controller. That was one thing L.A. Noire actually excelled at.
