What should be mine, or other users, first videos be? I've heard numerous things and I kinda want to know which may be the best.

I would just go with a game that you are comfortable with that isn't stupidly difficult, though that's just how I did it.
I do things at ParmaJon's Pizza Palace and on my own channel. Also sarcasm everywhere.

Yeah same here. I just edited some happy wheels footage. I didn't even talk which if I could redo it, I would have.

But what should be normally said? Should I tell them what I am having done to my channel?

I'd go look at Puddykitia's intro. She did pretty good. She explained what she was gonna do on her channel and a little bit of why she started a channel (I think).

Golly, thanks Blew  :D

I wouldn't worry too much about your first video. For me, getting the first video out was a major hurdle.  I'd been reading a book called "Whatcha Gonna Do with That Duck?" It talked about how if you want to become a writer, or if you have writers block, the best thing to do is just write things and put them out into the world for people to see. With time and practice you'll get better at it, and knowing what sort of things you should write (or youtube about in this case) but the first step is to just start putting things out there! For me, that was a revelation. To just turn on the camera, say a few things about what and why I was doing stuff. Don't worry about it being bad. Don't spend too much time mulling it over. Just start making things. Something that you could use as a typical "Youtube trailer" might be something to aim for.

It's no biggie Puddy I just thought it was a really good intro :)

 Yeah I need to break down and make a feature video to play on the front part of my channel but I procrastinate. I feel like it'd be a good way to introduce my channel since my real "intro" never really clarified anything about it.

Your first video and all your future videos should start off with a 30 second elevator pitch about what the video is about. Obviously, LPs are a little different but the attention span of the general user that stumbles onto your video is going to be very short. So say what you need to say in under 30 seconds.
