About Zap Zockt
I’m Zap, and in my mid-40s, gamer since 1980. Not only do I enjoy playing games, but I also try to help others, including you, with tutorials, guides, and combined gameplay with explanations to better cope with the games. Games and gaming are very important here. I have a lot of experience with gaming, but still, I will not keep telling you about the “good old days”, because I live in the here and now, the best time is today and I’m looking forward to the future, preferably with you.
The ZapZockt YouTube Channel
There are now more than 600 videos on the channel, as well as guides, tutorials, reviews and news in addition to Let’s Play gameplay videos. Except for the first beginnings, everything, of course, commented by me. There are videos from the areas MMOs (Fallout 76, Fortnite Save the World, Elder Scrolls Online, Secret World Legends), Survival (Conan Exiles, The Long Dark), Economic Simulations (such as Tropico 6, Two Point Hospital, Tropico 5, Railway Empire, Startopia, Planet Coaster), strategy (Spellforce, Civilization) or role-playing games (Elex, Mass Effect Andromeda, Shadow’s Awakening, The Outer Worlds), but also occasionally a small Indie game (Shoppe Keep 2, My Grand Life, hammer helmet).
Initially, the channel had only Let’s Play formats. Meanwhile, the focus is shifting away from Let’s Play gameplay to more reviews and tips and tricks videos.
Background story and stories
The channel has existed for about 3 years now and there are new videos every week, depending on my time. Because despite all the nerd stuff I also have a private life, with family, wife, work and other obligations. The channel is so important, but not the most important thing in my life, please understand if you wish. I try to get everything under one roof, and the viewers have high priority, but not always the highest.
The Zap Zockt Blog
First, just an additional way to point out my videos has become much more out of it now. The blog site now also offers news and posts that will not be published as a video, because there is not always enough time to make a video for everything. The content of the forum is also very extensive (but I would like to use it more, so just sign up and write it down).
I would like to expand this blog area even more in the future. More news, more tips, and tricks, enhanced with screenshots, spreadsheets and other additional information that would often not work or go down in video format.
In addition, I also write about topics such as news and Reviews about tech and hardware and tips and tricks for YouTube, to which I (so far) do not make any videos, as this would not correspond to the orientation of the channel.
Recently, there are also pages on certain mod projects, including from friends to Sims 4 or Skyrim. There could certainly be more to come soon because the topic of modding games is also always very interesting for me.
Can I somehow support Zap Zockt?
Under each video in the video description and also here on the site (right sidebar for example), there are affiliate links eg for Amazon or my partner side Gamesplanet. (more info about this partnership here: https://zapzockt.de/steam-keys-guenstig-kaufen/ ).
If you use those links and shop from them, not just the linked game, but whatever, it will not cost you a dime more than normal, but I’ll get a small portion of it as a commission. From that, I can buy better equipment, new software or hardware and here and there maybe even a game. Ok, at the moment I can’t buy anything, because so far hardly anyone uses these links, but maybe that will be better if you like to use them from now on? Ideally, you simply exchange your Amazon favorite with a link from me and always buy one that would be great animal. Thank you in advance, if you like to support me like that.
Otherwise, of course, you can also send me games, hardware, or other gaming stuff, or general things that you think might help the channel if you want to.
More questions about this?
For further questions, just write me a comment here or sign up in the forum. There we can then discuss and exchange plenty, if you want.
Greetings and let it go well,
