Mass Effect 3 in The Game Archive
The Game Archive series is a new form of Let’s Play. A “Let’s Play” is a video of a gamer playing and running through a game. Views get to watch the gamers choices and play style as they make their way through either to story or the multiplayer version of a game. A Let’s Play of the same game from two different Players can be very different. This is due to the style and the features the gamer wants to show off.
The different between the Game Archive series and a regular Let’s Play is the commentary and editing style. First off, there is no commentary in the Game Archive. Instead the Game Archive put the game front and center for an immersive viewing experience.
The editing difference between the Game Archive and a Let’s Play is duration. Let’s Plays are very often tightly edited showing only the highlights of a game. Sometimes just the glitches or funny moments. The Game Archive is recorded in a live to tape format. Meaning that the Game Archive is the entire game. The good parts, the bad parts and the parts of struggle and parts of triumph. It’s all there, making a truly unbiased representation of the game.
