Inb4 lock.

If you really want people here to watch your videos, you are gonna have to have face time in them instead of just playing them.

Let me begin by saying that your accent is lovely. Aside of that, well done. It's nothing earth shattering in gaming video blogs, but I do enjoy a good gaming video and yours are pretty good.

The sad part is people WILL only watch these because she's a girl.

It's like when girl doing a guitar cover gets about 500,000 to 1 million views, even though she's mediocre, and some other guy who's much more talented gets about 500 views.

I'm sure your videos will be of top quality and very informative and analytical on the state of the video game industry.

It's all about the videos thumbnail, I assure you.

Thumbnail related to the subject of the video = 1,000 - 100,000 views
Thumbnail clearly showing cleavage = 500,000 - 1,000,000,000 views

This topic was in the wrong forum so I've moved it over to Primary Games Discussion.

Thanks for sharing the link and be sure to post regularly to gain post count. People don't like drive by shootings (pasting a url but not sticking around in the community).

Lol, very true. Sex sells and always gets the most attention. I have nothing against females doing anything but they limit themselves by stating they're a girl gamer or a girl whatever. Why not just be a gamer or whatever it is and let people decide from there?

Holy crap this thread came back to haunt me in another section of the forums. Inb4:"OMG ALL GURL GAMERS ALWAYS WANTING ATTENTION BLAAAAH STAWPIT!"

Though I gotta agree with some of the people who've already posted. You don't have to capitalize the fact that you're a girl so much, just be gamers and post good videos.

Don't do top 10s / insert number. Or Let's Play's; unless you somehow work out an interesting spin on the tired formula. Talk about something specific in gaming you like and you're knowledgeable about; interesting content is what saves good gaming channels from being part of the horrible deluge of bad gaming channels on YouTube, consisting of people who either scream into their microphones or people generally rambling or thinking their opinion through a mic carries some sort of weight. So yeah, that. And first and foremost; what the others said about using your gender for self promotion, you're not special because of it.
