    I'm seriously considering starting a YouTube/twitch channel on gaming but wanna do something a bit different. Some people have been saying they would be interested in videos of old classic games instead of the latest releases - thoughts ? Would you prefer/be interested in watching old games or do ppl only have an interest in the latest releases?

    Whatever you name, there are people that are already doing it, including old games. If you're going to be a part of the videos, showing your face and talking over it, then people will only watch if you're entertaining and know how to market yourself, the game itself doesn't matter. If you're just showing the game, then people are only going to be watching to get an idea about it, or to see the level they couldn't get to, or how to get past a point.

    New releases if you want views. Classics if you want to play good games.

    Playing old games and recording it isn't exactly different. I can think of 10 youtubers off the top of my head who do that a lot.

    Good idea and seek more ideas from those who are doing it.

    I was thinking of doing something similar. I find myself going back to old games for nostalgia. And cause I know I'm getting a good game that I enjoy. Plus new releases are more expensive and at times buggy. But I agree that a few YouTubers do that.

    The market is so ridiculously oversaturated that what you choose doesn't make a difference. It's your personality that matters. Just remember that it will take months and months to see any results unless you're very very lucky.
