Haha, no way do I have the attention span to create something like that.
In all seriousness, the entire video walkthrough took me about 20 hours of extra time (non-gameplay), but it's something I don't mind doing as much. When I type for too long or I'm tired, nothing makes much sense where as I've conditioned myself to edit video decently without needing any energy.
Some games are also much better at being portrayed through text. Never played Darksiders, but Hitman seems like a hard game to walkthrough with text, as there is so much waiting, and you are trying to show an exact pattern in enemy movement for the split second where you can make a clean break. I think a trying to follow text through this game would be more frustrating than doing it yourself.
