Should I start posting some more Virtual Reality gameplay?

I currently run a small YouTube channel (might be getting sponsored soon) And my VR videos seem to be really popular on my channel. So I wanted to hear what you guys thought.

Here's a small list of my Oculus Rift videos I've uploaded 🙂
Modern Warfare 3 (Spec Ops) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbcL34WQgZ8
Counter Strike (Global Offensive) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wGPP4QOXGU
Black ops 2 (Multiplayer) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bf7UCp7DzpU
Black Ops 2 (Zombies - Town) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzSkM14STD0
Counter Strike (Source) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9ChiSuSCc0
Team Fortress 2 (Man Vs Machine) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MCMpwhFxwk
Fallout 4 News (Feat. Fallout 3 gameplay) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOTJZxZh19w
Combat Arms - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXi0ndKeIqs

Please tell me what you guys think, as of right now my counter strike GO video is the most popular on my channel.

Note : I don't plan on doing any facecams right now (but I do in 2014) once I get a better microphone (I plan on getting a Samson Co1u) which would be perfect for doing rift videos.

I await to hear your feedback.

I would say yes if you play something else rather than war games...

totally, I actually usually enjoy playing mystery games like amnesia (in 2014) once I get my samson C01u microphone. (so I can do some Face cam gameplay) I think horror/mystery games especially like outlast would be amazing to post on my channel 😄

Making videos is a noble gesture but you are going about it wrong.

Whenever I click into a you tube video for the Oculus and there is no commenary, well it really pisses me off. :lol: When people watch Rift videos they want to hear how the experience is for the user. Let them know how the 3d was, tell them what level of immersion you are feeling, if the scale is off and you hands seem like they are bigger than a Ford pickup truck then share that piece of info with the viewers.

If you don't inform people of nuances of playing with the Rift then they might as well watch someone else who is playing the game normally without a Rift. There is millions of videos out there already so make your videos Rift specific by sharing your experience. Watch some Cymatic Bruce vids and you will see what I'm talking about. If Bert made videos and didn't say anything then they would be very uneventful videos. :lol: Right now the only value your vids add is to be able to watch them in the Rift but they could be so much better.

One last comment to drive home the point, I once saw a You Tube channel where the guy posted over a thousand game play videos but never said a word on them. Do you know how many subscribers he had? Three subscribers - that's it! If PewDiePie had videos without any input from him then I promise he wouldn't have 18,000,000 subscribers. I'm not saying act like an ass like he does but at least have something to say.

So, invest in a microphone and let viewers in on your excitement.
“My ally is the Force. Life creates it, makes it grow. It’s energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we…not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you. Here, between you, me, the tree, the rock…everywhere!"

Yeah the videos really need commentary, it's boring to just sit there and watch someone play in silence.
Whenever I see Rift videos, with no commentary I immediately move on.

It's a point of view. in my opinion, I prefer videos like your's (a simple capture of the screen), instead of videos with commentaries and facecam but with just one side of the screen. That sort of demonstration very commonly used (Pewdiepie...) can be funny, but useless for estimating the 3D immersion of the simulation.

The pictures can talk by themselves.

Otherwise, I could only suggest that you precise the different settings used in the injector.
