I loved the FUCK out of the Silverwing trilogy as a kid. I would read anything with sentient talking animals (Redwall, Guardians of Ga'hoole, etc), but Silverwing, Sunwing, and Firewing all seemed significantly darker and more violent than the other stuff. I still feel a little something when I think about the conclusion.
I was a shitty judge of quality as a kid, so it probably sucked.
I've done a few LP's, and I've always been adamant about keeping my stuff ad-free. Mostly, it's because I don't believe I should profit off of games that I didn't make. I just think I would be more comfortable with Nintendo extending that same courtesy to the LP community. They are not providing the personalities and commentary in the videos, so they should not receive the ad revenue from them. Money never should have entered into the practice of recording yourself saying dumb shit over videogames.
