Let's Plays
« on: August 13, 2012, 11:45:39 AM »
I'm bored, lols.

Does anyone here watch Let's Plays or make them? XD

Let's Plays are basically playthroughs of a game with commentary attached to them. Hopefully hilarious commentary, but still.

Some questions to get this started! YAY!

Who is your favorite Let's Player, and why?
Have you ever watched one and went, ugh?
Why do you watch LPs?


Me:
Who is your favorite Let's Player, and why? Kikoskia, because he is darn friggin funny in all that he does. xD

An example:

P.S. Kiko is the voice of an antagonist in Ghost Shards because I asked him so. ^__^

Have you ever watched one and went, ugh?
Tons of times! My least favorite time was when I was watching someone LP one of the old Elder Scroll games, and in the middle he webcammed his face playing the game. I was like... Oh dear, I don't want to have to look at you and the game. o.o

Why do you watch LPs?
I'll be honest. I am not a good gamer, nor do I have the money spend on games I want to play/played from my childhood. So instead, I'll watch someone play the game for me, and I can enjoy it that way. :D

Not only that, if I know I want to play the game, I will watch them play it first and take notes for when I play.

It's how I roll. B)

I haven't seen many LPs, because I get too excited about it and want to grab the controller, so I close the window and play the game myself xD (if I have it)

What I've been checking lately though is live streaming, which is somewhat the same but the player interacts with a live chat and it can get pretty funny. Last night a friend of mine did a stream of Super Meat Boy and we had a lot of fun (he has like 30.000 subscribers on youtube, so plenty of people showed up to the stream)

Oooo, now I want to play Might and Magic VII. D=

The guy I showcased, Kikoskia has about 30,000 subs himself. He needs moar!

Yeah I like watching LP's. Mainly games I used to play that I can't play anymore like Paper Mario for instance.
I also watch a lot of MC & LoL videos but I'm not sure if you really classify them as legit LPs xD.

No, I've never seen one. I probably wouldn't watch one if I hadn't played the game, to remain spoiler free and whatnot. :seraismile: I'd like to watch some on games I've played though.

Spoiler: show

I've been watching a lot of Game Grumps, with JonTron and Egoraptor (two hilarious YouTube gamers by themselves).

It's not a traditional Let's Play in that, even though they play the game together, it's more like us watching the game with them being completely goofy and silly. And they only play older games so far, like Goof Troop, Megaman 7, Pokemon Emerald, and A Link to the Past.

They swear a lot, so it's not for everyone. :p

I personally prefer Chuggaaconroy, Proton Jon and the final member of the Runaway Guys, Nintendo Capri Sun. They can be quite entertaining at times. ... Juuust don't watch Proton Jon's Super Mario TKO LP. That's not one of the better ones.
If I could, I'd turn back time, forget it all and leave this mess behind.
If I could, her love would always be around.

Superman 64 that is all.
Old River was as dead as a doornail, this must be distinctly understood or nothing wonderful can come of the story I am about to relate.

I watch quite a few "let's plays" and minecraft videos. I have a habit of subscribing to people after watching one of their LP's and then never watching anything else from them because I don't like the other games they are playing.

Haha! I've totally done that before! ^__^

I only honestly watch Kikoskia now, but that's because I likes him a whole lot. <3

Oh, we broke up, so thus he doesn't care anymore. XD

He already knows I like Kikoskia. ._.
