very interesting thoughts. there needs to be more fans like you instead of all the haters out there. as to video reviews, prose vs video is really a personal opinion, but i can respect if you prefer prose. i suppose it has to do with whether a video can hold your attention or not. there are of course several video hosts who have weak voices, or don't know quite what to say, very unscripted (tho my vids haven't been scripted yet), and just fail to hold one's attention, depending who you are. i'm doing videos because i'm a very large fan of James Rolfe (Angry Video Game Nerd) and Doug Walker (Nostalgia Critic), who are both thoroughly entertaining and easy to hold attention, and am trying to get my own webshow started, and the few vlogs i've done so far are the early starting points of doing so.
