Hey, it’s Katy…remember me?
I am very selective about what I will play. I used to play everything, but sometimes I just can’t tolerate having to try the same level over 20 times or doing puzzles to open a door or dying because I didn’t hit A at the exact time to jump. Shawn will ask me to try a game or play a game with him and I flat out say no. He doesn’t ask as often anymore because he just knows now. I feel bad, and I long for my inner gamer that could spend that kind of time without getting really really angry or feeling like I could be doing or playing something else.
All that above is NOT why I started a new Youtube series called “I don’t really wanna play this,” but it is part of it.
Toward the end of October the game Style Savvy Trendsetters came out on Nintendo 3DS. I loved the first game that I had found super cheap on clearance and had to have the new one. I had a friend from out of town hooked on the first game too and she was sad the sequel wouldn’t work on her regular DS. I decided to record a few videos of what the game play was like for her, I stuck it on Youtube and sent her a link. Next thing I know I have people subscribing and commenting telling me to make more. O_o
My friend didn’t end up getting to watch more than the first video, but 86 Style Savvy Trendsetters game play videos later I might actually get paid by YouTube some day. I gained 100+ subscribers, have some regular commenters that I also swapnote game pics with and all because I record a game I am playing anyways.
So now that I am hooked, I want to put everything on YouTube where I could possibly get revenue. Playing the games I like is one thing, playing games I don’t want to sounds like it could be funny. Shawn and I have recorded a few already, please check them out.
