(IGN)   Nintendo: That's a nice "Let's Play" video you have up there on YouTube. It would be a shame if someone were to insert ads with all the revenue going directly to us   ( divider line

For those of you who have never seen a "Let's Play" video, allow me to spell it out for you:

1. "Hey guys!"
2. "Today... um... we're... uh... going... er... to play... urmmm... [game title]"
3. Watch somebody else play a video game you could be playing yourself.
4. Forced humor and intentional overreaction.
5. Um. Um. Um. Um. Um. Um.
6. "Thanks for watching! Make sure to, uh, like, comment and, ummmm, subscribe."

FutureWars: I don't understand this ads in youtube concept. Everyone is smart enough to use adblock plus, right?

That was my response. "YouTube has ads?"

Nintendo does not want to block videos containing content that it owns from appearing on Youtube (as many film and music publishers have), but it wants to place ads at the beginning and the end of videos featuring Nintendo games, such as Let's Plays, with that revenue going to Nintendo as opposed to the creator of the video.

For people that don't understand, even non-painters watched Bob Ross paint.

ZeroCorpse: I really don't understand this whole "watching other people play games" thing. How is that fun? The point of games is to play them yourself, not watch them being played.

They have their uses but not many. For example, yesterday's Crusader kings 2 thread reminded me that I wanted to give it another try, but I am just too dumb to understand the game without having my hand held or watching someone play it.

Or, like my buddy who is too pussy to actually PLAY amnesia so he just watches others play it LOL
