What does it take for a retro youtube gamer to get traction?

So I go on Reddit and I ask how to become a YouTube game reviewer?

A guy tells me a looong sentence about how you must review the latest and greatest game and how it's hardwork. You must upload every other day or die.

But do I have to review the latest and greatest? We live in 2019 and there are children that aren't even aware there was a second Playstation. So how do I get a leg up when all I have are old games?

Do I play demos? Cheap ones? Make walkthroughs? What do I do?

The best thing you can do is just start. That guy was spouting what worked for him or what he has heard from others. That doesn't mean there aren't different ways of doing it.

Get started.
