Mario 64 would be my go to, though if they don't know anything about gaming they might not really understand the technique that goes into a good run.

They don't play games at all? I feel like the best hook for speedrunning is finding a game someone thinks they know well and showing he or she a speedrun of that game.

are you looking for a good speedrun or a good GDQ run with commentary?

for the former, Mario 64 0 Stars is a pretty good short "what the gently caress is going on" kind of video

for the latter, CovertMuffin's Jedi Knight 2 run is a pretty good "I'm explaining thing as I go along" kind of deal that's entertaining and not 3 hours of

It's always like this. Capital-G Gamers love to hate GDQs. They hate being told not to swear, they hate being told not to be racist/sexist, they hate that GDQ allows women and trans people to be on screen, etc.

Thanks for the too tired;didn't watch recap.

I feel like tracking donation stats and doing analysis numbers, right now, it's just the hourly values and the pace it puts us on.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...fkSo/edit#gid=0

Anything anyone particularly would be curious about? I'm thinking each hour's average over the week (ex: 1-2 AM each day, 1-2 PM each day), whole day average, game by game amounts, and maybe some kind of formula that gives a "balanced" amount per game based on the hourly averages (basically, games in the middle of the night don't get as much, even if they are good, what would they get if they were midday).

Cross posting this since other thread is too fast and it'll get missed by morning crew.

I still maintain that Halfcoordinated's Transformers run is great: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APVsIGyX7sM

Impressive skill, clear commentary, relatively short, and, if all else fails, really dumb puns and everyone cracking up and slash or groaning. I've gotten two people to watch the whole way through. Then they started quoting the dumbest puns and I regretted everything.

Good morning everyone, I really don't like these kinds of posts, I think they are silly and damaging to us all. It's weird that every single person here because of what we're enjoying this week can be considered a "gamer" for sure, but we're using that term now as a weird self-flagellation because we don't like aspects of the community? That's giving that mentality we don't like the win and full permission to let that behavior take ownership and define how we interact with each other. Please stop it. Every single fanbase on earth is overflowing with shitheads and gaming is the first time I've ever seen people en mass just give up. I'd rather be optimistic, like what I like and enjoy things with people I like without this elitist shame-fest I see going on.

What I fear with SA is an arms race out-do each other with this BS and eventually become this sad person, joyless rear end in a top hat:

Bringing this over here so Data Chat doesn't clog up funposting


This data is great

Looks like yesterday evening was incredibly strong (compared to AGDQ '17) up until what, 11pm when it started to drop off in a big way. The first night overnight block was relatively strong in '17 in comparison to this year

'17 11pm-4am: $16,001
'18 11pm-4am: $7,055

In those overnight time slots last year were

MGS 2
Devil May Cry
Silent Hill 4

This year was

Part of Arkham Asylum
Littlebigplanet 2
Prinny 2
Battleblock Theater

Obviously looking at the data without a full 2018 is borderline meaningless, but last year's first night was definitely like, "Gamer Games"
