I’ve been following JP since the very early days, I’ve followed pretty much every campaign of his until Swan Song ended, plus i’ve watched every episode of Dropped Frames.
I follow a lot of youtube channels and i really dislike spam in my feed, so his trend of uploading 30 minute segments of game playthroughs was just too much for me, i had to unsubscribe.
JP is a smart guy, I’m sure he understands that youtube isn’t just a place to dump your gameplay VoDs. Twich already exists and does a better job at keeping track of that stuff if someone really wants to see those streams.
What does he gain by uploading these 30 minute videos that each get <500 views, compared to dropped frames and roleplay content that gets 5000-50000 views?
Just look at youtubers like Vinesauce, they only upload edited compilations on youtube. If those 300 people who follow his playthroughs really want to watch the full thing, they could see the compilation on the youtube, where JP could create a link to the full VoD. It’s that easy.
If he really wants that stuff up on youtube, he could just upload it all in one big chunk. I doubt he earns anything from these videos, and viewer exhaustion is a real thing if they see videos from a creator popping up every day in such a situation.
I feel like i’m proof of this, since i’ve followed JP through every endeavour of his from starcraft to dropped frames and roleplaying.
