Default Do you prefer TR videos with or without commentary?

As somebody who does a lot of Tomb Raider videos on youtube I'd like to know if as a whole people prefer videos with commentary or without.
It only takes one person to be right.

Depends whether or not is a game dialogue-heavy, if it's a game I'm well familiar with or not, if I'm looking for a walkthrough or a bit of some timekilling entertainment (or both ofc), if a guy's commentary is actually worth my ears or not, etc.

However, TR specifically I'd rather watch something with a commentary. I'm far too familiar with the games to watch it just to see some gameplay. Also, if you're not keen on your commentary and/or you don't have a good mic and/or you can't be bothered, there's always the option to just add a bunch of annotations (preferably not the YT ones) which, if you know how to handle them and don't want to do commentary, is often the best way to go.
Your whole life has led up to you reading this.

As long as the commentator is funny and/or interesting, I don't mind.

As with all game videos, without. I just want to see how things are done, not hear somebody who's not funny try and act like they are.
No regrets, Mr Freeman.

With. If I want to watch a game as it is, I would play it.

The Walkthroughs without commentary. I prefer subtitles telling you Hints rather than listening to them they annoy me most of the time.

Usually without. Most videos with commentary have really bugged me due to their annoying voices and useless chatter.

With. But the new TR videos I don't like any kind of commentary because sometimes I can't understand what Lara's saying
