I just don't get around to checking out everybody's game they recommended in the recommend a game thread... At my slow pace I only remember to try just a few of them!

So that's why I wanted to make a new thread, for ease of use! (lazy/not enough time) to show off a game you want to recommend. That's right, this is the post a video of a video game thread :)
And keeping it to one video to show off a game would be ideal...
But if you have more than one video per game feel free of course!

So in summary this is a 'post a video of a game you want to recommend'~


*Update*
Thanks to SkyeWelse's suggestion I believe I might be putting up a website to show off some of these games soon... Having a place to show off all of the best or my favorite games that I find, including mods and hacks would make a good site I think..!

The amount of research it takes or dumb luck to find some of these great games is far too haphazard to reach most people... But the more people that talk about the games, the better the chances are to reach us...

Well until I get a website up, I've used youtube to try to organize some of the games :

If you check under video responses you'll see categories like : action games, visual novels, strategy games, etc...
then under each category you'll find the games available under video responses...
and if there are any further videos on that game it will be under the game's video~

Pretty intutive I hope :)
Nearly all of my videos have been uploaded for high quality, so you gotta click high quality to take full advantage of them...
(currently no commentary, just like if you turned on the game and tried it for yourself.)
Also if you add &fmt=18 to the end of the video's link it will play stereo.

It's nice quality though, right? :p The actual games look 50% smoother though... (my videos are only 30 fps... when the games are 60 fps)

hmmmm
You know ... I haven't been considering how long these videos might take others to download at youtube's High Quality setting... I mean the files I'm uploading to youtube are between 400 and 800 megs each..!!
lol obviously youtube squishes the size down a ton... but I guess it still could be pretty hefty...
Still I'd always recommend watching it in high quality, but if someone doesn't have the time to wait, then change the last number of my links.

Usually I have it set as : &fmt=6 which is normal high quality.
if you change it to &fmt=1 it will be low quality and download much faster. (but.. but... the quality...)
...
There's a third option as well.
If you change it to &fmt=18 it will be reasonable quality, AND it will playback in stereo sound..! lol

Choices, choices...
Oh and it might improve the speed of the downloads if you set your general region in the icon on the top right.

Oh, and if other people add games and a video, do you think I should add it to the first post? Maybe add user ratings? 1 to 5 stars per game? [only if you've played it though!]

O_O..... You really should compress them..... that would take you hours to upload...

It only takes 10 - 20 minutes to upload... and it doesn't pause during playback :p

I've updated the games again. Just doing it casually though; later I'll make it a little neater maybe, with more information such as what system it's for etc...
These are all enjoyable games in my opinion ;) [which is why I uploaded them; mostly for my benefit :p But perhaps someone will see something they like]
