Do you play any games that you don't record? Any mmos? I am afraid to try to start recording videos personally because I don't want my hobby to feel like it's becoming work.
Not very many, honestly. I’ll go through a phase where I’ll play something daily for a week or two, but it usually fades away pretty quick.
I don’t know that it’s just because gaming is part of my work, though. It’s definitely a factor, but I also have a lot of other things besides gaming that I like to do in my free time. Alsoooo I don’t let myself take very many days off, or allow myself game time. I need to get better at that.
I don’t think starting to record games will automatically feel like work, though. It’s when you start putting deadlines on things, and forcing yourself to record/work on gaming stuff when you’re really not in the mood that it starts being tedious. If you just record yourself whenever you actually want to, I think you’d probably be alright. And you could always call it quits if you feel like you’re losing your hobby.
