After reading the YouTube rant earlier in one of the topics from here, I started to wander what interest you as fans of the series, GTA V players, newcomers to the series or just a casual players the most when you are searching for a game's related content on any site that offers video viewing services???
1.) What interest you the most??? (you can answer simply by voting)
2.) What is your base of entertainment when you are looking for a game's content to watch on YT???
3.) Did the game simply disappointed you so much, that you are not bothering anymore with it or you will simply watch just anything, that is served to you via masses of famous YT gamers and probably for the most part, just waste your time with something already seen and done before?
I have to be perfectly clear now. As a GTA fan from day one who has been into the series for 15 years and spent thousands and thousands of hours on GTA games, following every bit of info for years about anything GTA related (I am no different than most of you ), writhing my own GTA stories, doing a few machinimas and a couple of mods back in the day and that sort of things. I recently started to make my own GTA V related videos. A series of episodes that are based of survival from cops, GTA V gangs, army and enemy A.I. in general. A force that we all generally love and appreciate in GTA V.
Let's face it, enemy A.I. in this game is generally improved from previous games. Cops are extra brutal on 5 stars and if you don't act quickly (sometimes I have been gunned down myself with just one shot) or have a proper knowledge of the world, you can end up dead in a matter of seconds. Also, a subject (A.I.'s difficulty) that is being talked about for months now in this section of the forums.
To get on the point, I recorded my own (I could call that a style of play) rampages, where I follow the particular routes while battling the enemy's A.I. on the way to evade the heat and survive. For starters that are extra hard and brutal with a lot of kills (and kill cams) on Free Aim with a white dot, a lot of explosions, cinematic camera while driving or flying and a hell lot of details noticeable to the eye that this (in my own opinion) amazing game has to offer. You see, I actually invested my skills into motion that I posses in the game.
I also recorded everything in the SP (no love for single player anymore?) and most episodes were made in the first shot (it's up to a viewer to try and find where I edited the video). Camera, Lights, Action. Doing everything from the first time around can sometimes be extremity hard and stressful, but very rewarding in fun and experience after achieving and recording something like this from the first try, .
I invested a lot of my free time into my GTA series and a lot of gaming will and skills, primly because I wanted to have some nice memories of my gaming days and to show to the people how to deal with the cops in style and survive or maybe just interest people on GTA Online to try it together. But, when I compare how much of time did I put into recording, editing and trying to make everything look not just watchable and easy, then better than most that is offered today. I start to wonder why can't I for once interest more then a few hundred people into something that I made and find more than special and fun like those people do??? Or at least bring the awareness of GTA players (for starters who are similar to me) who has been there from a day one or are just interested in a old bit of the old ultra-violence with police? Can anyone please explain to me, what am I doing wrong? Or am I so old fashioned and live in the past glory GTA days, when cops rampages were actually fun and challenging to do and this series was to people something that matters? Which is it?
I don't care about subscriptions, likes or dislikes at all. Just about any kind of structured feed or some recognition as a long therm GTA fan and player. Or is that too much to ask?
I would appreciate any kind of feed on this on, because I am getting real tired of getting ignored by the people. The same people who share the love as me for the GTA series.
