what are your thoughts on character story lines in lets plays?

7 posts in this topic

Lets Plays have become a major part of online entertainment, hell its probably the biggest second only to porn, and so its very difficult to break out of the sea of recruits and take your place among the old guard. one thing that makes it so hard is your style, which is getting pretty hard to have one of your own with so many, so i had the idea of having Atop the fourth wall esque story lines in my lets plays, maybe a story line a series or every couple of series, and i was wondering what other people thought of the idea.

Well, I think it has potential, provided you could act. Though it could be tricky to balance out the acting with the playing. And the stories have to be pretty darn entertaining for people to tolerate time in the video that doesn't show gameplay. I know with some I tend to skip sketch stuff sometimes just to get to the "meat" of the content so to speak. But, if you could figure out how to weave it all together so that not one part of the video is taking away from the other, I say give it a shot.

Are you saying doing Let's Plays from a roleplayer's perspective? Because that sounds like it'd be great

Don't think it's the second biggest entertainment out there.

doing a "roleplay" in let's plays could take away from the original point of the video, being an actual let's play

i hate let's plays, but if you wanna do try it out go ahead

I tried something like this once.  I'm playing Overlord and one thing you can do is outfit your minions with armor and weapons.  One of them picked up a giant deer skull and wore it as a mask.  I liked it so much I made a backstory for him.  Then he died.
