New YouTube series about Mac games

Hi everyone,

I recently started a video series about old Mac games! There are already a few videos up there, both with and without commentary. The most recent video is about the classic game Pathways into Darkness.

Check it out here (like and subscribe, etc.):

Feel free to leave feedback. I'm a bit new to video stuff but have been getting the hang of it, I think. I'll be posting a few special videos eventually, too.

If anyone has anything in particular they'd like me to cover, let me know!

I'd quite like to see some coverage of mods and fan-made levels. Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Quake, Marathon, Glider 4/PRO, World Builder, Bolo, Maelstrom, the Escape Velocity series, and several other games had thriving sub-scenes within the 90s Mac gaming community. But there's been very little public exposure for them. (And I didn't have much room to cover them in my book, unfortunately.)

Lots of Ambrosia fan content still available on ambrosiasw.com. There's also a good number of mods and levels in Stephen Thomas Cole's Vintage Apple Mac Collection and at this wonderful "Gamers Stop Here" page.

I'm planning to do some of that (especially with Avara) but not too much, at least not at this stage. Right now I'm mainly focusing on exposing people to games. Plus I need to do a few more bigger games to bring in some more subscribers!

On the other hand, I could do them as Patreon bonuses if I run out of HyperCard stuff. I wouldn't do Doom or Quake though, there is enough of that stuff on YouTube due to being huge hits on PC

I'm trying to get more subs and attention. Which games can I cover that will get people REALLY excited and make you share the video?

A not unremarkable percentage of the comments I get in my videos ask how to play games on modern systems. If your using an emulator as your setup for capturing footage, then a popular subject might be a walk-through of how you set it up and got it running.

As well as covering lesser heard of games which have no footage on Youtube (which is awesome by the way, keep at it), in-depth topics based on popular games can often have a very good reach as well. One idea that comes to mind is perhaps a comparison between the version of Myst that ran in Hypercard vs the later version that had its own engine. Maybe also compare MS-DOS games with their Mac counterparts, your tapping into two different audiences there.

These are great ideas!
