Hey folks,

Just figured I would drop in and ask you lot about a task I am having difficulties with on my Twitch and Youtube channels. I am planning on switching up my Youtube channel from being all minecraft to start to include some other stuff. I am not sure whether I should focus on a particular genre of gaming or if I should play a mix of all types of stuff. What do you guys generally watch on Twitch/Youtube (if anything at all)?

Any help/advice/ general ribbing is appreciated :-P :twisted:

I think a mix is good, I know that's what I look for.

However, my daughter is Minecraft mad and she only watches channels based on that game in a playlist fashion.

But I'd think you'd attract more visitors by having some variation

I've always wanted to get into streaming I just need to get myself into gear and sort it out.

As for what I watch I go for anything- more about the streamer than the game for me. I watch channels that are dedicated Day Z and Destiny but also Horror channels and streamers that host different games each day/week.

I think it depends on what audience you are trying to attract. My kids would spend hours if we let them watching Minecraft, teraria and Fifa Ultimate Team video's.

I think a mix would benefit, I usually watch the funny glitch type videos, and anything battlefield. BATTLEFIELD!, that's where I probably went wrong on my own channel, enjoyed filming the games nights uploads.

a mix is the best thing to survive, there's just too many 1 game focused streams/videos to count. Minecraft is one of the main one's......and then there's cod...and fifa :()>

one bit of advice is don't join the day one release crowd as it gets crazy for the first week or so especially if its a well talked about game and the chances of getting a good viewer count is slim.

Variety is good, but I'd say just play what you want to play and stream that. If you're a likeable enough person and sound passionate about what you do then people will want to watch whatever you put out there.

I've seen a lot of youtubers and streamers get worn out from playing just 1 game all the time. The odd vlog or a casual playthrough of something different every few videos might help break the wall of minecraft content. Might be worth doing a video asking your YT subscribers for feedback and explain the things you're thinking about.

Thanks for all the advice guys it has been quite helpful. I am planning on throwing a mix of stuff on there and hopefully that will sort it out for me. I never do the AAA day one stuff as everyone is doing it, I prefer the quirky and different games to play
