Well, I don't mean to discourage you or anything... but...  I guess... I might? :nyoro~n:

When I watch a video LP, I want the commentary to be more than a running description of what's happening, as it happens. I have eyes, I can see what's going on; plain narration adds nothing. There needs to be something interesting going on; I need to learn more or understand more or even just laugh more than if I was watching straight gameplay footage. Saying "damn I blew up" when you blow up just doesn't cut it. The only thing I know about Post Apocalyptic Mayhem that I didn't before I saw you play it is that it's a game that wants to be Twisted Metal really bad, and I didn't need a 12 minute video to figure that out.

A screenshot LP can get away with plain narration because without it then the reader has no clue what's going on. But even then, if it's nothing but gameplay description then it's at the very real risk or being spectacularly boring.

Now what do you need to add to make a compelling video? Heck if I know. That's for you to figure out!

I'm serious about the advice I'm about to give. It will sound like a joke and may sound mean but I really mean it and you should try it.

Next video? Just make fart noises the entire fucking time.
Just "START! PFFFFFFFPPPPPPPPPPPPTTTTTHPPPPPPPPTHHHHHHHHHHFHFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFALAPALAPAPALAP*squeeeeeeaaaak*FFFFFFPPPPPPPPPPPPPPTTTTPTPTPTPPPPPTPTPPH!"

Problem is a lot of us have set a precedent of getting drunk and playing badly being good entertainment.  Other problem is I think we then proceeded to grow the fuck out of it.

If you're gonna keep doing LPs, go with what Zed said, otherwise, hang up the gloves.  If you must make it a video, use Research Indicate's LP of Jurassic Park: Trespasser as a guide (EDIT: Or don't since I guess it got spanked off the Internet.)
