@strife: I don't have any decent video capturing abilities, but if I did, I would do gameplay and commentary videos. My thought process is that when I was thinking about getting the game and even when I'm daydreaming about it now, I wished there were certain gameplay or strategy videos. I think I could provide that to people who wish the same because of 2 reasons: 1) I have the skill and like to dream up new strategies and ideas, and 2) I think I'm a fairly interesting person that people might like to watch.
It just seems too... easy. I mean, has no one seen Sequelitis, JonTron, Spoony, or AVGN? People who spend hours writing, shooting, animating, and editing gaming videos that are jam-packed with content. (Even Dunkey twists up the whole Let's Play scene with his absurd editing pace.)
I understand the educational (combos and such) side of it, even I have delved into that by just providing visual aids for some AP Bursts. But commentary is usually applied to something more... substantial. Like a movie, or a competition.
Once again, not trying to discourage anyone. In fact, just the opposite, I think the gaming community is capable of much more than screaming in a mic for 10 minutes while playing Amnesia.
