Hey, how come raocow never plays fighting games? Does he think they don't do for a good LP?
Oui oui. Je suis très jambon.

I know Beat 'em Ups have been suggested, not just here but in Patapon Pools as well, and i don't think they've ever done well. Not sure about Fighting games, though I do know that raocow seems to enjoy them.

I'd be up to watch.

He played one Touhou based fighter, but that was an 'in-between projects' one-off, and he was discussing something else entirely, not even paying attention to the game.

I don't really have an opinion, but I personally don't really play any fighting games, that aren't Smash.

I think the main reason raocow doesn't LP fighting games is that there's a bit of a disconnect with the LP audience that he's cultivated. People watch raocow to see various flavors of 2D (and very rarely 3D I guess) platformers. Anything else is a little risky.

There was that time raocow tried to do a MUGEN thing on SA that I think would up being something of a flop (referenced and linked to here):

Personally I wouldn't be against watching him play a decent fighting game like Skullgirls or Tekken 7 but I'm not so sure it'd make for a decent lp.

just joking the maze at the end where the game suddenly decides it wants to be metroid would make it not worth the trouble all on its own

I agree with Leet in supporting games that are smaller and weirder and further from the spotlight, over The Big Indie Hit Of The Season That All Ten Thousand Youtube LPers Are Playing Simultaneously. I've enjoyed the Hollow Knight and Celeste playthroughs, but it's a much more unique and special enjoyment when Raocow plays something like Jiggly Zone or this:

Plus (though this isn't always the same games on either side of the spectrum) sometimes like five small games can be LP'd in the same time it takes to LP one big one, so the cost/benifit is a thing to notice. I like Hollow Knight but I don't like it five times as much as Escape Goat or Hyper Light Drifter or Mibibli.

keep in mind that for the most part the games on the b-side coming up list are games that people (saucepans) requested raocow play, and publicly showed for support for their playing, out of a very long list that included many smaller titles. For reference, here's the entire list of games that part of the last patapon vote, and here's the final vote tally. While the vote system may have had it flaws (that's up for debate), people wanted to see those games.

I know, the vote was the vote and I'm not saying to overturn it. Just making the case for my preferences. I suppose I'm getting a head start on campaining for the next vote. And maybe I'll influence one or two people in what sorts of games they think to bring up in this thread.

Remember raocow has a habit of just inserting whatever he feels like, in between games that were voted on.

That may not help if you do it here, considering quite a few saucepans don't view the talkhaus.

Sure is great that the talkhaus is abandoned then

People are just gonna vote for Games They Like (Superstar Saga) anyway, which means Popularity, which means that if people suggest something weird it will always be overturned by a somewhat more mainstream game

I just remember when we looked down on LPing games that were being LPed elsewhere and in fact the SMB playthrough was delayed for several years because of how big it was on YT at the time. Doesn't mean that LPing Celeste was a bad decision, or that currently-popular games shouldn't be played, so it's not like that attitude was always right, but what's our identity if we start looking down on weird games? I always found the talkhaus' and raocow's tastes to be pretty punk and I don't know if we are exhibiting that punk spirit as much anymore.

I should probably correct myself: while some never registered on the talkever, some used to frequent the talkhaus but don't anymore (or just lurk)

Also, there were hours of discussion on games in the patapon spotzone during the vote. There was lots of debate on games, though mostly on whether or not it would make for a good raocow lp, as raocow had stated that votes should be for games people legitimately thought were good games and would make a good raocow lp.

Games like Hallow Knight and Celete and whatnot were voted not because it the hot new thing, but because people legit thought it would make a good and fun raocow lp (or, at least, that's what we were told to do by raocow)

I mean you're complaining but jiggly zone happened all of a month ago so I guess raocow doesn't play weird obscure games ever

Alternative take: raocow should do a redux of big fish legend
If I was suffering, I’d cut the ties that were never meant to bind.

I think that was meant more as a joke than anything but the way you were talking in that post honestly did come across as rather hipster-like, lol.

I get what you mean but this is basically word for word something an actual hipster would say.

Also since I'm already making a post I may as well try addressing this bit too. Does the talkhaus actually look down on weird games now? Because I don't recall anything but people being excited for Jiggly Zone. And the All the Mega Mans may have something to do with it feeling like there's less of those sorts of games as well. Between the Patreon list frequently (but not always) populating both the A-side and B-side then Mega Man as the C-side it seems like it's more of a saturation problem than anything.

Mostly the A-sides that are relevant here (though I'm admittedly completely unfamiliar with quite a few of the B-side entries so they could fit as well) but quite a large chunk of his to-play list here seems like it'd fit what you're calling for.

Rosenetc, Necrosphere, and A Rose in the Twilight are all pretty decisively "not big mainstream indie games" imo

So I mean yeah,

It wasn't my decision to delay the SMB LP, dude. build a time machine and bring it up with past raocow if you think that not wanting to LP a trending game is "an actual hipster thing", i think it would have been fine to play, and i made this very clear in my post

Also yes wow there are lots of cool punk games being played by raocow still I know. That is also a "gotcha, you are wrong!" point, can you please just look at this as a conversation and not a thesis to be proven wrong, I never said "we literally never play a certain type of game anymore". I just. Wanted to voice my take, I wasn't looking for "so you believe this, huh? huh? huh? is that what you believe?". ridiculous hyperbole like "oh, so now we can't say this ever again anymore?" as if I'm an authority is just so confrontational for no reason

E: actually alice's post was pretty normal about that point, so no problem with that part of her post. I have looked at the to-play list a lot and, i mean, yeah i am excited for a lot of the A-side stuff for this reason!

But we're not looking down on weird, niche, obscure stuff. We should not rule out those games and consider more than just the new popular stuff, but intentionally trying to pick out obscure games doesn't seem necessary. If a good idea is well-known, so be it.

And there are efforts to help balancing things out. raocow's personal picks (as opposed to the patreon votes), where informal community suggestions can have some sway, is a way to balance that out.

(I'm technically in both the patreon and the general-use discord groups, but I don't use discord much so have only visited them a few scattered times.)
