My latest video is now available! You can check it out here:
Whenever I’m working on a video, I always worry about how it’s going to be received. “What if nobody likes it? What if everybody hates it?” I’m constantly imagining all the different reasons that somebody might dislike the video. Although I really enjoyed working on this video, I have a strong feeling that I know exactly what people are going to think while watching it –
“He spent over 10 minutes talking about…a yakuza? Why? What makes the yakuza so important? Is this his top priority? Does he think this is what we want?”
Before the comment section fills up with angry messages, I’d like to explain my reasoning.
Most of my videos are about game development; it’s probably safe for me to presume that most of my viewers come to my channel to see game dev stuff, and not to hear me talk about a yakuza character for over 10 minutes. I wish that all of my videos could be about exciting game development progress, but sometimes it’s not possible. When I’m unable to deliver a development video, I try my best to produce something fun and interesting instead. I really enjoy talking about the yakuza character, so that’s the direction I went in for this video. This doesn’t mean that the yakuza is my top priority, or that I’m going to shove the yakuza in your face all the time; it just means that it was time to make a video, so I chose a topic that I’d enjoy talking about. If you’re disappointed about this, I’m very sorry. Please wait for my next video, which is almost certainly guaranteed to be development-focused.
I’m not sure whether or not this is obvious, but I love making videos. I love writing scripts, I love recording narration, I love editing footage, I love creating effects, I love syncing sound effects, I love adding music – I absolutely love every aspect of making videos. Video editing is probably the only thing I enjoy more than game development. When I get to make a video, it’s like a mini-vacation from developing the game. Sometimes, when I’m creating a video, I tend to go a bit overboard – a video might become much longer than it needed to be, or it cover way too many subjects. It’s just so much fun to make videos that sometimes I just can’t stop myself! I think that’s what happened with this video…but I hope that it’s still possible to enjoy it anyway.
