    "I love to play the video games and this one is about war so there is much action to be had. The name of it is the Total War: Arena and it is soo good! You can even play it for free, online with other people that are also online. It is a war simulation game and boy is it a fun one, you should play too!"

      "This is one of the best interfaces to use when recording gameplay. I am easily able to tag other users for credits. Plus, it is super easy to share right after finishing a game. I don't even have to do editing if i don't want to."

      "MSI Afterburner helped me increase my video cards resources when I wanted to record my gameplay. My viewers noticed the increase in frames and reduced lagginess and even wondered if I upgraded my PC. I guess I can say I did ;) The after burner helped get more power to my video card which helped reduced the lag on my card."

      "This is a great way to record your game play to save for later. It's great for someone who is doing you tube clips about a particular game. You can start and stop when you want and make small clips to save."

      "Recording gameplay is a feasure of this app, and I like that it does a lot of other stuff too. Basically, it is an all-in-one, with the games, and a social aspect. It doesn't really apply to any other platform though, and I want more information about the computer and console games I play. It feels sort of juvenile, or very niche."

      "As a Twitch gamer, I can vouch for FFSPLIT. I've never had any issues with it, and it comes loaded with features. There are other options available, but FFSPLIT is one of my favorites because of the variety of options available. If you're looking to record footage like the pros, check it out."

      "I have always wanted a good way to stream and record my gameplay on my computer. I have tried a few different products, but it wasn't until I used "Action!" that my problem was solved. I love how it captures video, records music, takes screenshots, and even allows my to add commentary. It was one of the best purchases I have ever made and I'd recommend it to just about anybody with a computer."

      "Being a game designer I know how important it is to give potential buyers an idea about what your game is really about. While taking screenshots is crucial I find that it is even more important to give potential buyers good gameplay videos so they know what they are really getting. Everyplay allows you to do just that and the best part about it is that your can record your gameplay with little or no impact on your actual game performance."
