Media these days is all about watching what we want to, when we want to. Preferably for free. And in the gaming space, A lot of the "cover everything" outlets (from websites to TV to print) can't compete with the level of depth of specialists on Youtube.
What specialists do you regularly go back to? Both in a gaming sense, and in general. Who makes you laugh, who provides insights, and who's worth watching?
It'll be no surprise I watch a bit of Dark Souls and Bloodborne content. For lore, VaatiVidya is king. EpicNameBro is great too, though has veered a little more towards the Let's Play stuff for my liking. Vageta was great too, back in the day, with stuff like his one-shot boss challenge.
It's just striking, and a little worrying for traditional media I think, that we just don't have anywhere near the time to delve into these games at the same level. Not every gamer needs that level of depth in their content, but if I'm into a game at all, I want to go straight to the person who really knows what they're talking about.
As for non-gaming stuff, La Liga has a Youtube channel now, and is thus one of my regulars. It's finally easy to see some high quality highlights for Barca.
I've been doing some GameMaker stuff, and have found the tutorials of Rm2kdev (another Aussie) very useful.
Actually, going through my list I've realised how bare it is. How about you?
