    Why do you watch youtube gaming?

    We’re a group of students from the IT University of Copenhagen, doing a project about gaming culture. More specifically, we’re interested in the segment of people watching gaming videos via youtube, and the reasoning behind this choice of entertainment. So, assuming you watch gaming videos on youtube, we would like you to explain why these videos appeal to you.

    First of all, why do you watch youtube gaming? Is it purely entertainment? Do you watch it to get a higher skill level? Do you watch it before you buy a game? Or something completely different?
    We are well aware that you can have a multitude of reasonings behind this choice of entertainment, and you shouldn’t feel obliged to choose only one. What we’re interested in is your individual reasoning, so if you feel something is important, please write it.

    Secondly, how do you use it? Do you use it as a main source of information, or does the videos serve a purpose closer to being background noise to some other activity? Maybe you like watching it while playing a game yourself?

    What do you feel is the most important part, the person playing, or the game being played? How important is the personality of the entertainer to you?

    Lastly, we would like to know how you find your videos on youtube? This is somewhat in relation to the aforementioned question, but when you try to find a video, do you search for the channel or the game?

    We realize that we’ve asked quite a lot, and would appreciate any type of input from you. You shouldn’t feel obliged to answer every question, but of course, the more detailed an answer the better.
    We hope you’ll take your time to reflect upon your choice of entertainment, any answer will be greatly appreciated!
    Thank you in advance!

    Mark, Charlotte, Peter, Mikkel and Emil

    To see video of the game in action before purchasing, mostly.

    The game is far more important than the presenter.

    I search by game title, unless it is on TotalBiscuit's channel as I am subscribed to it.
    The Medallion of the Imperial Psychopath, a Napoleon: Total War AAR
    For the Emperor!, a Total War: Shogun 2: Fall of the Samurai AAR
    The Red Blades, a Battle Brothers AAR
