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.
Darksiders is kind of a free roam hack n slash with RPG elements. People have compared it to Zelda because of dungeons and puzzles. Very Prince of Persia as far as climbing and jumping along walls. It would have been somewhat difficult to do a video walkthrough because it would be a lot of stopping the video if you fell off or missed a jump.

Hitman is much better suited for videos, as you can just do checkpoint to checkpoint.
