Well the top L-Pers I watch are:

1. Chaoticmonki [AKA Cry]. He is awesome :D Without him I probably wouldn't know of freebird games so yeah, thankyou Cry :vikonsmile:

2. KSIOlajidebtHD. His reactions are really funny when he gets scared or angry XD He is generally a funny guy.

3. PewDiePie. His reactions are funny when he gets scared.

4. UberHaxorNova. I mostly watch him for the happy wheels series he does [I don't watch every episode, only the odd one or two] and sometimes I also watch other things he does [E.G he's started doing a playthrough of heavy rain. I also watched the short playthrough of dark souls he did]
The sentence below is false
The sentence above is true

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.

That's an interesting site, Jude. O_O

I'm too lazy to go through and search for Kikoskia, though. XD

.___.

Kiko will be gone all weekend... NUUUUUUUU...

Who is your favorite Let's Player, and why?
Right now, Pewdiepie. Something about the way he reacts and talks, makes alter-egos and talks through objects with different voices just makes me laugh.

Have you ever watched one and went, ugh?
A lot of Uberhaxornovas lets plays. His rage-videos are hilarious, but the ones where he just casually plays... ugh.

Why do you watch LPs?
Depends on what game it is. If it's games like L.A. Noire, then its just boring. Nothing really happens that makes the player go "WHOA". But when it's games like Amnesia - especially considering that has custom stories... then it's a bit more interesting.
Or when people play slender. It's scarier to see people play it than it is to play it yourself, because you have NO control over the movements, and that makes you all the less prepared for the jumpscares. If you play the game yourself you can curl up and go "He's around the corner" and be prepared, but if you watch someone else do it, you never know when they'll turn around or turn a corner to find slendy-man standing there waiting.
Same with Amnesia, really.

I hate to go off-topic, but I disagree. :vikonsmile:

I find what makes horror games scary is that you do have control, which means you're the one who has to force themselves to keep going, instead of the guy you're watching.

Sure, watching someone play can be scary, but no more so than, say, a horror movie. What separates games is that you're the one experiencing it. Forcing yourself to keep going, even though you know you don't wanna see what's up ahead creates a sense of serious dread and fear that you won't find in any other medium.

Carry on.

That and the whole over the top reactions just ruin any atmosphere.

Unnecessary screaming irritates me in LPs, especially when there is absolutely no reason for it.

Only watching two let's players, Morfar and Pewdiepie, but I long from all watch all their videos (only the ones I find interesting, obviously)
