But forums also allow people to easily hide parts of their posts, which lets the streamer decide which help he wants and doesn't. I think on the whole that balances it out.ano0maly wrote: ↑ But I'm putting emphasis on that difference. In a live chat it would be not only distracting to the streamer, but impractical for everyone, to post advice and details about everything. But in a recorded format that is discussed on forums, people have a lot more to say and the structure makes that practical.
Obviously some unsolicited advice is worse than others, but when it's so easy to include the "solicit this advice y/n" in any post, you might as well.
In that case, if I was especially looking forward to that LP, I'd be pretty disappointed if backseat gaming was super rampant. But on the other hand, maybe "this is blind" is pushed aside in importance for the sake of the bigger project. I can't really say. If we want to tighten up on backseating in other LPs, ATMM can join in or be an exception.Some of the Megaman playthroughs were actually blind (such as Zero). That was quite different from playing Classic games with self-imposed stipulations like reverse boss order; it was in fact "experiencing this fun game for the first time".
