I'm finding that making these Let's Play videos is a lot of fun. It's nice to just be doing something that I love, being able to put it out there for the world to see, and not have to worry about people judging me.
Well, that requires explanation. I know that people will be judging me, but I don't mind being told that I suck at a game, so much as I mind being told that I'm stupid for making recordings of myself playing one. I came from a tiny town, and the only person I knew who was into games/anime like me was my best friend. I could never talk about my interests with anyone else, because everyone else treated me like I was mentally deficient for having them - or that I was an immature child who would never grow up.
I haven't gotten any comments on the videos that I have uploaded yet, but I don't have that same apprehension about them that I did about trying to relate to the other kids years ago. Although I was nervous when I made the first recording, I've since become much more relaxed, and I think I'm going to enjoy continuing to do this.
