Mike & Chewie Play Nidhogg | Dork Vs Dork

Welcome back to Dork Vs Dork! On this show, various dorks and I will be playing some manner of game with each other! This episode is Nidhogg, a super sweet fencing & running like hell simulator. It’s a LOT of fun and I highly recommend it!

My opponent dork is Mike, a cohost on The Mana Pool podcast! He’s using a keyboard, so he can’t help it if he sucks. I’m using a controller, like a decent human being should.

    Hey Chewie. I’ve heard here and there that youtube money making and such is aided by putting out videos that keep people watching all the way through (or something along those lines?). The game grumps channel for example sticks to around 11 minutes per video as a rule, it’s the ‘sweet spot’ they say.

    Now I’m not saying I’m an expert at all and I’m sure you’ve put more thought into this than I have, so I’m wondering: is there a particular reason you rather stick to a longer format? For the Hearthstone or Magic episodes I can see the longer format being more appropriate with the longer games and all but for a play session like the Nidhogg or VVVVVVV one you could more easily cut it into multiple videos. This would provide viewers with daily videos and a smaller time investment per video. I do think this would entail more work on your part though, but I’m not sure how much more.

    Again, not an expert, not a youtuber, just wondering about your process and about the choices you’ve made for your channel. Also I’m liking the Nidhogg vid, it’s so much frantic fun.

    Hey buddy! This might be a conversation best done directly, but I’ll answer your question here in case anyone else is wondering.

    I’m not gonna be the type of YouTuber who splits up perfectly good content into smaller chunks for the sole purpose of making more money. Thus far I haven’t made ANY money on YouTube, so that’s not really a problem just yet, but that’s beside the point. I believe videos should go on as long as they have to (like Fight Club!). I try to end everything at a natural stopping place rather than artificially cutting it off because a timer went ding.

    To be perfectly honest, I’m gonna create the kinds of videos that I’d want to watch. I’m not gonna min-max it for “optimal” whatever. If people want to watch, that’s awesome and I appreciate it. If people don’t want to watch, that’s fine too.

    It’s also entirely possible that this is my wide-eyed new-at-this optimism showing through and that my opinions will change in the future. I lost my scrying glass, so I can’t peer through the mists of time and see it. But now my younger, more innocent perspective has been put up on the internet for people to direct me to later in life when I become a cynical old business-tuber :p
