    "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."

    "Fraps works amazingly well with any DirectX or OpenGL games and software. I am able to record my gameplay and have put together many tutorials with this program. Fraps also allows me to track my FPS within different games, which is a nice little feature."

    "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."

    "ShadowPlay has allowed me to simply record any moment of gameplay on my PC with ease. I no longer have to burden myself with using software like FRAPs. Shadowplay uses less system resources and causes less of a performance hit so I can secure footage of my favorite gaming moments."

    "Wow, I had no idea such a product existed for recording my gameplay. This has totally changed the way I can create my gaming videos. The best thing about the Elgato, is that as my channel gets bigger, they offer more products to further enhance my gaming recording. I also love how clear and organized their website is, and their customer support is great as well."

    "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."
