@WALK and @LILAC(is she still on this site?) I need to know what I can do better to get women to watch my videos.
Honestly I would stop making them. I lost interest in all COD related videos toward the middle of MW3. Then I lost interest in all FPS gaming videos a little after that. Then I lost interest in all gaming videos except for anything related to Borderlands 2 or gearbox/2k Games and then it has to be put out by them and not done by someone just playing the game.
You just cannot win Syn. Your videos will not be popular enough to skyrocket you into youtube stardom. Not because of you however it is because gaming has changed so much.
You will want to put out videos that show skill and map knowledge. That try to teach people how to be a better player and show the fast paced action of running and gunning. Today's COD and most FPS people are not interested in that type of material. Instead of skill and knowledge, they want to know where the best place to head glitch is and they want to use the cheapest training wheel options the game has to offer. Instead of a desire to learn they want the short cut to throw up large numbers and all they care about is killstreaks. No one cares about running and gunning because they have to protect that KDR.
So you pretty much cannot win. Let me put it this way I am so off from watching gaming videos that I don't even watch Speedbumps Twitch feed while she plays games and she is using face cam too so i get to see her anger face.
Plus I am going to be 31 this year and I really am not interested in videos anymore because even with people claiming that "so and so youtuber is a pro/good/awesome/down to earth playa", I shrug in inevitable disappointment because I know that they are never many of those things and are more often than not none of them. I also do not believe in "Pro gamers" as anything because there are not any games out today that require any type of skill, everything has been dumbed down or ported to PC.
I used to watch all of your videos actually a lot of videos from a lot of people on here or the old site and I just stopped one day. I never watched your videos because of any particular reason but mainly because I knew you and it was the right thing to do to try and help you out.
EDIT And none of that was meant to be mean or sh*tty.
EDIT That is if you were being serious. If you were messing about and truly enjoy making videos regardless of how many watchers you have or how popular you become than by all means continue and enjoy doing it.
