    I'm beginning to to start to create a social netwerk revolving around a youtube channel about popular games I like. (Like FIFA, FM, Battlefield, CS:GO, Fallout 4, Battlefront, Mortal Kombat X, perhaps others).

    I'm a journalist, but journalism and getting paid for had pretty much dried up and the fun been taking out it. 15 years ago, you'd call a concert promotor and you'd receive a free press pass and backstage ticket. And get great stories. I did bands like Bad Religion, Henry Rollins, Madball, Sick of it All, NOFX, Pennywise, Millencolin, Green Day, ...

    True gonzo journalism is what it was. Sadly those days are over. Security checks, legit press cards, getting frisked for booze. Goddamn ClearChannel is my Nixon.

    Got another job, at the government. But I like gaming (I can't start a music channel because copyright issues would be all over me. Although Anthony Fantano pulls it off, but he usually only does indie releases and only show the record and talks about it. No sound clips.)

    I made some money re-selling steam keys, but I hit the limit pretty fast where Paypal or my Bank is legally forced to alert the taxman and I'd have to pay taxes, which would eliminate my profits and get me fired from my day job.

    So I'm just going to try to make videos and talk about games I like and broadcast versus games in FIFA and MKX and add commentary afterwards. Like watching a real game. But tips and tricks and whatever works.

    I have no experience with that, so I'm checking this site out to see if I could pick up a few tricks.

    edit: Also, how's the community here? Friendly, helpful, welcoming, mean, noob-unfriendly, trollish, flamers, ...
