Annoyances when watching LP's

This was done before, but it's a interesting topic.

What are your pet peeves when watching a LP?

Mine are:

People who include intros. WHAT IS THE POINT?
People who try to be like others. I've lost count of how many times I've seen "Season 1 romhack review"
Romhack reviewers who don't review hacks. Extreme example: Moltov.
when they insist on not using save states, but then fail epically and keep re-starting the level #w{:<}

My biggest pet peeve is chimpmunking.

I don't mind it if it's just fast forwarding a part for taking too long.
I have alot so let me make a list.

-Sped-up crappy editing
-Raging
-Being too quiet
-Skipping levels their not good at
-Horrible quality
-Bad sound
-Unoriginal lines/sayings

Yeah, I think that is all that bugs me.

--------------------

There's only one thing I hate.

When someone is so stupid you just want to yell to him trough the computer screen.
Here comes slippy!

I find that funny sometimes and annoying sometimes.
There are a few annoyances for me:

-People who include intros especially when they last like a minute, they're annoying.
-When I have to see the same part again and again because people don't use rewinds or savestates or just edit the video.
-De-syncing.
-When they suck at playing.
-When they try to be funny but aren't.
-When the videos to quiet that you can't hear anything, not even the game.
I swear there's one more, but I can't think of it.
These are mine:

  • People who refer to drugs/profanity.
  • People who swear all the time in their LP's because they think it makes them sound cool.
  • When they think they are brilliant at the game, but really they aren't.
  • Like reghrhre said, when you have to see the same part over and over because they don't use rewinds, savestates or video editing.
  • Free counters!
    When the player is terrible and you are forced to watch the same parts over and over again because they don't use savestates. Also when the person tries to be funny, but they just fail.

    I really don't get mad at much, besides these.

    Few generic anoyances:

    - Too long intros (I don't mind a 5-10 sec intro, but I hate those ultra long ones).
    - Too long/much chipmunking parts in a video.
    - Desync is anoying (Tough I don't blame the lpers for that).
    - Sound problems (Could be random mic/pc sounds, soft sound, etc).
    - Lame jokes.
    - Ohai, I just spend 10 minutes on 1 part of the level videos. I never understand why they just don't cut those parts out like raocow does if he dies alot.
    - Annoying voice(s).
    - Random loud sounds.

    --------------------







       

    My Rips/Exgfx:
    01|02
    When people use a video camera to record, or hypercam. JUST USE AN EMULATOR OR CAMSTUDIO.

    I agree with this. I also hate it when they use a video camera, and the screen is constantly shaking, so you can't see what's going on that easily.Free counters!
    - Doing the level agaqin and again. USE Savestates.
    - Crappy Quality
    - Intro's that take forever.
    - Desync
    - Suck at playing(unless it's hard).
    - Speeding up, I'd rather litsen the music
    - Lazyness
    - Random Shouting
    - SLOW
    - Tons more that I can't think of.
    -If someone constantly keeps complaining alot, even after they made their point.
    -People that LP just for the sake of doing it.
    Those are the things I think about but also some which are already mentioned before which I'm not gonna say again.
    Anime List
    Manga List
    D³ Releases: RL1, [RL2], [RL3], RiS
    SMWHacking? I rest my case.
    SMWCentral? I leave it to rest.

    -Saying that he/she is an expert at the hack and that the hack is easy, and then dying ten times and using Savestates
    -excessive profanity
    -mumbling and humming during dull parts of a level
    -background noise

    Consequently, the best LPs keep a good dialogue about the hack and point out flaws/good parts.
    I use savestates,I don't like it so much,but I can stop of using it!



    --------------------






    I hate when LPers try to hard to be funny or if they have a really obnoxious and annoying voice, like Raocow, excessive screaming or yelling, or if they're extremely boring with a monotone voice.

    GVirusG imo is a perfect example of an LPer who doesn't try to be funny but is in the end, I really enjoy watching his LPs.

    --------------------
    I think a post layout goes here somewhere...

  • Alright I think that is a common misconception of people who swear. No one does it to look "cool", most of us have just been doing it for so long that it just becomes natural.

    But honestly, who gives a fuck(LOLOLOLO)
    They are just words that people take offense to because they were raised too. :|

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanywayyyyyyyyyy

    Another peeve I have are people who never finish the game they are playing and constantly switch :\

    -Skipping levels their not good at

    Meep, I do this if I think that there's no reasonable way I could do it and make it fun to watch at the same time, or if I don't think I could do it at all without gratuitous amounts of slowdown... or if I hate what I'm playing.


    -When someone is so stupid you just want to yell to him trough the computer screen.

    It's worse when you want to yell at yourself after watching it over. It's not often I feel like that, but it happens.

    -When they suck at playing.

    :C

    - Anything involving desync or sound quality:

    If anyone can help me fix desync in my videos, I will bend over backwards, and mention them in the next 100 videos I make. Thus far, everything I've tried has failed miserably.
