YouTube Series - You've Got 5 Minutes...

    Hey guys, I started a new video series called "You've Got 5 Minutes..." (YG5M) on YouTube. Essentially a series of videos between 5 and 10 minutes long of me just playing the start of the game. I may or may not have ever played the game before, but the mission was twofold: 1) Play some of the games I buy, instead of not playing them. 2) Bring more content to the public and/or fans of DownToForit X.

    This video series achieves both of those things. I'm at least trying games I normally wouldn't have even installed on my PC and it's allowing me to do something constructive with the games I'm trying out and showing. I don't have tons of time, being my dad's full time carer doesn't leave me with a definite amount of free time a day, so a short video or two a day that takes up less than half an hour seemed like a good shout.

    If this interests you, you can watch the series so far, which is 22 episodes deep and a variety of genres. If you have any suggestions on games I should cover, you can put them down in this thread or hit me up on twitter @D2FXPrime. My HD PVR crapped out on me, so I can't really cover any console based games until I get a new one, but feel free to list PC games here and I'll consider adding them to the list.

    Here's the playlist so far for You've Got 5 Minutes!

    One other thing; it's a new series, so I haven't actually hit my stride yet. But if you guys do enjoy what I've done so far, please consider sharing the playlist on facebook or twitter? Thanks ever so!

    I've definitely been enjoying this series! A nice brief introduction to each game. It's helped me solidify some purchasing or playing decisions for the near future. :)

    And I'm spamming you with comments, haha

    haha, I didn't even realize that was you. Every time I think "Boric", i think of your avatar here. :p

    Thanks for the feedback though, much appreciated!

    Yeah I like this series. For one it's short so I know it's not going to take a lot of my time and secondly you are covering games that aren't getting a ton of press and games of the past.

    Haha, yeah, my avatar on here was a contestant from the PSN show The Tester (I think Scooter from the second season). I paused the show like that one day, and thought it was a fun picture :)

    Lol, I have wondered what the heck that picture was of! For along time I thought it was actually you, and then I think I saw an indisfest or mgs and was like ... okay nope.

    Twenty-nine episodes strong, people! Still going! Hopefully there's enough interesting stuff out there I can make use of to keep doing these videos! I've also noticed some of the games desperately require more than 5-10 minutes of looking at, so I'm open to suggestions on some of the games getting a deeper look into them. Something like Pixel Piracy for example just plain needs more time to get into and understand, so if you feel like I need to spend more time on a game, just let me know on the game's video page comments section and I'll certainly see what i can do about it!

    If you've still not seen YG5M yet, here's the link to the playlist so far!

    If anyone has any games they'd like to see covered, please suggest them below... preferably something cheap and cheerful, i don't want to be buying something for £40 or anything like that! Like cool wee indie games and whatnot!

    I was going to suggest Castle in the Darkness, as I've been playing a ton of that, but I see you've done a video on it already that I haven't seen yet.

    You might be able to get somewhere interesting in Life is Strange, but it might take more like 10 minutes (assuming you don't examine everything you come across)

    174 episodes so far guys! I'm thinking of doing a special 200th episode of some kind... got a few episodes to think of what I'll be doing though!
