A new video is detailing some of the challenges behind creating content based on MMORPGs, with multiple MMO creator heavyweights weighing in on the subject.
The video comes from creator Josh Strife Hayes, exploring the topic of MMO content creation, specifically the challenges that creators face when choosing to create video content for the MMORPG genre. The video covers a range of topics, all of which are excellent dives into the struggles YouTube creators (and to a degree, even media outlets) face when covering the MMORPG genre.
What makes this video compelling isn't just Hayes' own expertise on display, but also the commentary and insight from some of YouTube's most prominent MMO creators, including Asmongold, KiraTV, LazyPeon, Zepla HQ and more. The video weaves Hayes' own insight in with that of his colleagues, touching on various subjects such as the nature of creating content for a single MMO versus being a more general MMO creator, the differences between early game and end game reviews, and more.
At the end of the day, the video is also geared towards inspiring more creators to get into the space, but also cautioning prospective creators looking into the space about what they can expect to see.
"This video wasn't designed to scare you away, it was designed to welcome you into a strange career with a bit of look at the truth behind what you're actually going to experience," Hayes says in his closing remarks.
It's a long video, but definitely worth a watch fully even if you aren't leaning into creating content yourself but rather want a more in-depth look at the process to make content, as well as challenges some of your favorite creators face. Get your popcorn ready, or just put on your favorite MMO grind and give it a listen.
