Hello folks, RomanCandle here!

Anyone else a fan of Let's Plays? Let's Plays are usually videos people upload of themselves playing a game and commentating. This can be anything from Speed Runs, 100% Runs, or even Blind Runs, or where you play a game for the first time.

Some of my favorites:
- CaptainSparklez
- NintendoCapriSun
- Chuggaaconroy
- TheRunAway Guys

Aren't those walkthroughs? I thought Let's plays are live commentary

Pretty much all of the people I listed do live commentary. Let's Plays can basically be walkthroughs, yes.

I'm quite a big fan. If I'm majorly unsure whether to buy a game or not I watch LPs for a while to see if it would be something I'm into.


Only subscribed to Zero19 who does them. Funny guy, inactive as hell though :(

I saw one for Conker's Bad Fur day, pretty funny, but not a great way to spend that much time...

I like the old Super Kaizo World LPs, (Proton Jon IIRC) and I enjoy the occasional speedrun, but I wouldn't exactly call myself a fan of Let's Plays or anything.

There's a fun Earthbound one kicking about that I watched about half of when I was hungover once.

I was unaware of that hangover cure, maybe I'll fire up my nes next time I feel like shit...
