What's wrong with Modern Warfare 2?

Anyways, I frequently go to the Something Awful LP forum, which currently has ongoing LPs of Mega Man Battle Network, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, and Mega Man Legends 2...that one hasn't been updated in a bit.

I'm also subscribed to qzecwx (Has he been to this forum lately?), Darkmatt717, and Darkkefka on YouTube.

I'm not an LPer. LP's must have vocal commentary, otherwise it's just gameplay.

That said, the only LPer I really follow at all is Retsupurae, if that even counts. I prefer to just search->options->newest for the handful of games I care to hear what people have to say on.

Screenshot LPs. Also, *my* LPs use annotations for commentary because I find it to be more efficient than talking over it. My voice would also likely make the videos unwatchable. Remember my AW1 LP? Good! Don't watch it! >_>

Also, "LP", "Walkthrough" and "Playthrough" are all pretty much the same thing, commentary or no.

But I'm not here to spark confusion over what counts as an LP or not. I'm here to talk about things that people do in LPs that I HATE when they do it.

Five such things:

- Attempting to LP an entire game in one sitting. Speedruns? Yeah, they're cool. But LPs? Don't hurt yourself over them.
- Getting stuck in the same location for several minutes and not cutting to the part where they actually get past it. Who's gonna watch it all?
- Actually bothering to show themselves grinding in an RPG. Nobody wants to watch grinding! Cut forward, asshole!
- Annoying voices. If your voice stinks, don't talk over the video. Use subtitles or annotations or whatever.
- Related to the above: READING THE DIALOGUE/TEXT WHICH IS ALREADY VISIBLE! Double points if the LPer is attempting VOICE ACTING. Why?! We can already read the text which is already visible. (I would think, anyways).

Its sad you think that cause I personaly thought that LP was really good. And you really underestimate your voice sometimes its really epic.

You make a lot of good points though plenty to help improve though I have other problems as well.

1st: one I dont like that one too much it really depends on the game if its possible. remember my RE4 Playthrough on TSS. Ya... thats the one I followed this rule on.
2nd: Depends on the grinding. really random encounters useally skip but other grinding same place somehow ya. >_>
3th: Is my voice annoing? be honest.
4th: It Really depends on the mood of the lper but again if they aint in the mood they shouldnt work on that lp.

To be honest its mostly the online play that pisses me off. Its just bs luck because every gun so broken in its own way and bs stuff that make the game a camp fest sometimes.
Story great though.

It does I'm not just talking about just lp'ers. Anyone that makes gameplay videos counts. So if you ever find any list them. What made you like them in the first place. Speak your mind.

Um, Ephraim, I was disapointed when you didn't use your voice. The ability to add my own anotations was fun, but short lived. IMO i preffer voices.
