Fun Interactive Games on Youtube to Learn Japanese

Something I've been trying out lately on my Youtube channels is creating a game that allows one to practice some basic Japanese grammar and/or vocab that I go over in my video lessons. It takes sooo much time to make! Not only is it more complicated to film than most of my other stuff, but I edit the game into several different videos and have to add a bunch of annotations to make the game work.

That being said, I really love the concept and have a lot of fun making these. As a kid I had always wanted to make my own computer games through video like this, and now I'm able to do it through Youtube! And I hope other people are enjoying them and learning from them as well. :)

If you're interested, here's the first episode of what I'm hoping will be a continuous series of this game (as of now, I've made two parts, and even have a little story that will be tying them all together).

Aaaand part 2!

Let me know what you think! And also let me know if you know of anything similar. I haven't seen any other games like these on Youtube for Japanese learning (or any language learning, for that matter), so if you know of any, I'd love to see other people's take on this concept!

    OK, this is absolutely great and made me feel inspired! I'm sharing this with my friends and students right away! More to come, right? :D

  3. Thank you so much! Yes, I definitely plan to make more! It may not be for several more weeks, though, as I'm just starting classes and work (and these do take a lot of time unfortunately). I really appreciate the support!! :)
