Rather than make a well written article like Ryukouki, I decided to express my opinion in a few sentences. Gaming is Dead because of this: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=lets play http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=gmod http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=pewdiepie Lets play! Dear tempgodz, these abominations are the true reason gaming is dead. Yes, you heard me right! "Let's Play" this, "Let's Play" that; You can't search for a classic Garry's Mod animation without being bombarded by some ****** that posts videos of himself playing a game while talking stupidly. "OMG I DIED HAHRAHRHARHAR SO FUNNY!!!!!" TheTruth by SpeedoSausage (Explicit) Why do these people continue to stockpile cash and ruin video streaming websites? The answer: YOU Yes, that's right! Gaming is Dead because everyone is too fucking attention deprived to actually play a game themselves. What's my proof? Let's Plays and their popularity. Comments on these videos are just sad. "OH MAN SO FUNNY CALL OF DUTY IS THE BEST!!!" Yet the person never played the game. They are watching it. Videos like walkthroughs and reviews are good for the gaming community. They help a person see gameplay and decide whether or not a game is worth buying. Let's Plays, on the other hand, are completely worthless. I am not a journalist, (clearly, this 'article' sucks!) but I hope you can see the truth behind why gaming is really dead. Save the games. Not the players.
