    Hello. My name is bigtennessee and i just started a youtube channel that is mainly going to be based around doing lets plays and playthroughs of current, new, and relevant games. i ask the question because i feel that this area might be to saturated. then again i could be completely wrong. my goals of course surround gaining success on youtube but my main focus is on the now and growing a consistent following. i feel that it all comes down to the person in the video, to the reason why people come back to watch more of their content. i might have just answered my own question but would like to here what others have to say. Thank you.

    Well this is kinda a hard question to answer in one way only, There are a lot of different people that enjoy longer videos and some that like shorter videos, It all really falls on a time thing with most people and sometimes it is just preference at the end of the day, I would say try doing full playthroughs and then do some shorter playthroughs kinda edited down like highlights so both sides of the audience get the thing they want and none would miss anything from the game and be on the same page.

    You don't have to do this, but what I would do is upload some other types video's. It might increase your channel, because new viewers might be like: "hey, this youtuber does rants and let's play's. I like him and his opinions and I enjoy his commentary on the latest video games. I'll sub to him."

    Not everyone will be like that, but at least it might grow your audience.

    It's really hard to get a lot of views on YouTube these days ;(
