I have no idea why I'm here. The video isn't even up yet but I already know it's going to be a bunch of stupid overlong videos that have no relation to the original question whatsoever.
 
Yes, I'm already negative without even seeing the video. That's how much this feature sucks.
 
...
 
Random smartass: "Hey, why don't you do better ones then?"
 
I am doing better ones than most of the videos here, by NOT DOING A VIDEO. 
 
THAT'S BETTER
 
So there, now let's wait for the video to see how the quality is this week. 
:)

I should've done a video. My birthday is in October for one thing.

Posted by Tiwi

WHAT??
I have no idea what the second last video was! i can't comprehend it !

Posted by Ventilaator

The orgytober one has been the only video in the history of this entire series that has come kind of close to producing a half a laugh out of me.
 
It was the randomness and the happiness in the way he said it. 

Posted by Bunnyman

Wow, that really brought out some real nut jobs. Good job everyone! 
 
And @Ventilator, come on dude... Using your own logic, not posting at all would have been better than what you provided. Try to spread positivity, life will reward you.

Painful as always.

I agree with @Red12b. My birthday lands right in the middle of the big games season, October. ooooh yeah

Posted by Ivanetc

the video that used 'revolution 9' was easily the best QOTW video submission of all time

Huzzah I was chosen. I shall do one for next week also, if it's a good question that is.

Clearly Dom has never heard of No-Shave November.

Another awesome week of videos.

Tons of submissions this week...                                     ....which were all fucking horrible. 
 
I hate to join in the negativity, but this feature just isn't working out.  If Endurance Run and TANG go on hiatus between "seasons", QOTW could use a break too.   Perhaps it can eventually return as a Question of the Month where community members have more time to actually put some thought and effort into this stuff.

The christober one made me laugh. Not out loud, but to myself.

...You know, this is the one regular video feature on GB that I wouldn't mind being cancelled or put on (permanent) hiatus.

Posted by dbz1995

I had an awesome idea, but couldn't do it due to time restrictions.
 
It was gonna be Motherf-october, and I would run to dudes I know, speak some slang to them, and then see their response. :(

i love the persona one

Posted by Oni

Yeah this is all awful. People sitting in front of their webcams talking without any sort of enthusiasm or wittiness about the games they might want to play... great. I just feel really, really awkward even watching these.
 
The ONLY good QotW videos have always been the ones that only barely follow the question, like Luke & gang, and Dan and Lemon or whatever their names are, those were kinda funny. You know, the people that put some effort and creativity in.

@Red12b - Yea. My Birthday is Oct. 13th. Same day Brutal Legend comes out. =D

amazing ringtone!

Posted by DanielJW

This week was pretty good! :D

Posted by jim_dandy

Was that the Hagia Sophia? Did the Christians buy it back?

Posted by natetodamax

The best part was the ending.

Posted by AncientMecha

Thanks to everybody that liked my submission. 
 
To those that are negative, yes, many videos are awkward as hell, but GiantBomb is a community, and this feature is a way to bring the community into the video content.  
 
If you don't like it, don't watch it. If people stop watching it, then eventually the gents down in the basement will say "Hey, nobody's watching the questions of the week. We spend a few hours every damn weekend making it. Kinda doesn't seem like a good way to use our time if it's not getting any views." 
 
Either that, or you're just the very vocal minority. After all, it's human nature to bitch about things we don't like, but to stay quiet about things we enjoy. Look at me, I've got a few paragraphs written to negatively criticize your negative criticism, while I only devoted one sentence to thanking people who liked my video. Let's fix that. 
 
Thanks AGAIN to everybody who liked my submission, I had a lot of fun taking it. It took about 8 takes to get it to the point where I actually liked it, and even then I would have liked to edit it a bit, but you work with what you have, I suppose.

But there are no Giant Bomb memes associated with any of the other girls. SO GET BENT! GHAAA!

No negativity here, I respect anyone that takes the time to do one of these, and the stones to submit in a very non-anonymous way. Just wondering, though, if you'd think of using a "teleprompter" to read your lines, since it would get rid of some of the small pauses where you're remembering what you want to say. You're sitting at your computer, so having your lines scroll up your monitor wouldn't be tough, may decrease the number of takes needed, and may help you sound more natural, since you wouldn't have to create so many adlib lines in a solo performance. Just a suggestion... solo adlibbing is tough. Hope to see more :)

Christober. good work. But ur sad. very saaaaaaaaaaadddddddd.
Posted by AncientMecha
@Fbomb:
Thanks for the constructive criticism!
 
I considered actually scripting, as I do tend to act better with something concrete in front of me, but I wanted to actually look at the camera. So many people tend to look at the screen below the camera, and I always find it off-putting.  Also, without someone else to control a teleprompter, (or scrolling notepad document, in this case) it's really hard to get the speed right. If you wind up going too fast or slow, then you end up with pauses or totally missed lines, arguably worse than off-the-cuff ad-libbing.
 
I'm starting to do voice work, and ad-libbing is much better suited to getting a feel for a character, but when you're doing something fo' realz, then a script is absolutely necessary. Still, I think that some people stick to scripts to rigidly, and then it just sounds like they're, well, reading.

UVic!

So, did anyone like my Bowling clip?? It took so much creative force to really grind that one out

Posted by buzz_killington

Christober was really funny... it had almost a Mega64 feel to it. Nice work guys.

Posted by Spike94

So that's what MetalGearSunny looks like! Cool! Thought he was white for some reason...darn my "almost everyone MUST be white on the interwebz!!1" prejudice...my apologies to my not-white brethren of this Earth. 
Great videos all around, nice job guys, for the most part. Loved the Christober one, especially. Good job. :D
 
Also, AncientMecha (sick ringtone, btw) is dangerously close to being Paw, if you ask me...three cookie jars (full of cookies, of course) to those who know of which person I speak of.

Posted by MeatSim

Well there were more submissions then last week at least.

Posted by RagingLion

Wow.  I real variety of videos this week.
 
I actually laughed at "Orgie-tober" and it seems like some people have gone for an arthouse-style now, which might be a new one for QOTW.  Always love a Chie reference as well.

Posted by troll

Which one was the Chie reference?
