Myst V: End of Ages Playthrough!

Don't own Myst V? or your stuck at a part in the game? Well this is the place for you! In this video you'll see Brandon from Mygamesarefun play through the first 15 minutes of Myst V, so you can get an idea of what it is like before you buy it. Also if you enjoy it, or it helps you, feel free to like or subscribe, and if you didn't like it, comment and tell us what he did wrong. Thanks -Mygamesarefun

I've played Myst V many times. I know the game back to front and sideways.
I am watching your video, and I'd like to give you some feedback (as I am watching it)

1. You say you've never played it before, yet when you go to start a new game, you have a save position already, which the game asks if you want to overwrite, which you do. So you have played it before. Don't lie. If you gave it a try already, say so. (you did say so at about 3 mins in)

2. Your sound is not very good. It's very distorted, this could be because your mic volume is too high, but I'm not an audio expert.

3. You are talking over the intro. Don't. Let the intro play, let Atrus talk. Don't talk over the characters. Also, you sound silly doing it. It makes this hard to watch. You do say after about 4 mins you got your sound back. If that happened to me, I'd redo the whole video.

4. You were playing with point & click ... try playing with free movement. I prefer it you might too.

5. Be very careful not to come across as disrespectful to the Myst series or the characters. People will get very passionate and defend them.

6. Your sign off could be better.

This is just my honesty, please don't take this as criticism or "You MUST do it this way". Be yourself sure, but I'm just giving feedback.

You might want to watch this Let's Play for an idea of what I mean
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2xgXF2M ... 702D1E8F73

Your Let's play wasn't that bad, but it could be better.

Also, people tend to dislike huge writing in posts. It makes you come across as very pushy.

Thanks for the advice man! I am new at this and hope to get better. And Kath thanks for the posting advice, I didn't realize that it was pushy looking, I will make it smaller next time.

I haven't watched it but my advise to you is to contact Cyan legal about this, since "Lets Plays" are a gray area and some people don't consider them "fair use". Also this should go on the Cyan forums not the MOULa forums. (not that I'm being nitpciky)

You don't need to contact Cyan legal.
I can tell you now Cyan are OK with people publishing screenshots and making videos as long as they don't make money from it or misuse the content.

But you didn't.

Actually, it looks like a big ol' advertisement and since it was your first post, I almost reported it as such. But, since it was about something Myst/Uru, I took a wait-and-see attitude.... and, I'm still waiting to see where you go with this.

No disrespect intended, but if Ep 2 is anything like Ep 1 ... I'll pass.
If it were me, I'd redo the whole thing from the start (as I have said above), but I'm also a bit of a perfectionist.

I like the element of watching through the eyes of a new player and hearing their reactions. But it needs a more mature, less manic approach. No "stalker" comments and so forth. Think of how a director does commentary. Calmly explain your decisions and how you reason out the puzzles according to the story as it is presented to you. That would be interesting. Think of what viewers want to see, like a tour guide. I would have liked the awesome Descent soundtrack for the elevator ride respected because it's one of my favorite pieces. Allow momentary music and character monologues to be heard completely so that we can follow along with the story. Remember that this is more about the story and the game than just watching you. A historical background discussion would help, though it's perfectly understandable that a new player might be discovering it for the first time; it's part of the charm.

Just for a comparison, I watched another's tour through the original Myst. It was somewhat the same so maybe this is just how it's often done, but folks here are generally core fans and will be more demanding, so that needs some consideration.

Don't quit. Just listen and learn. Otherwise it won't truly be your first time through on your next try. ;)

I reported this thread a few days ago as spam because it's rudely shouting a URL at me. Unfortunately, since the moderators retired, reports are somewhat slow to be dealt with.

I did not say give up, I said redo ... that is not giving up.
redoing something, is knowing or seeing flaws you know you could do better and taking the trouble to do it better.
It's a choice only you can make, I can't make that choice for you. It's your version of the Let's Play, not mine. If you are happy with it how it is, that is your choice.
All I have said is that if I were doing it and saw those flaws, I'd start again and try to do it better.
