I've also never found one where I think the person is funny. Although I do enjoy the videos Hamster makes from time to time. I don't have the money to buy every game ever released. So i usually watch a lets play to see how the game's story plays out. I'm guilty of doing this for Deadspace 1 and 2. That's probably it for me as well. I just don't see the appeal. I also don't really see the appeal for the Endurance Run on GB either though. I watched a few, and they were funny, because the GB crew actually are pretty humorous, but I can't watch it all.
I do have to say though, I forget who it was, but one persons Let's Play of Europa Universalis III did help me both learn the games mechanics, and decide to purchase it for myself. But I only watched four of his videos of the game. This one is really excellent. It's done very professionally and features a game that's pretty much unkown by most. But yeah, for the most part I agree. It almost makes me wish Youtube had some kind of quality control, the majority of LP's are absolutely abysmal.
I've been known to watch Let's Plays for games I like but ones I know I'd never be able to finish on my own. WinterSnowblind said:. I suppose I could see this being interesting to someone involved in game design, and it certainly seemed informative. Unfortunately it was also dreadfully boring. There are plenty of games I don't plan on playing, but I'm curious about - so I'll watch someone else play them. For example, I hate scary games I can't even play Quake 2 for prolonged periods - but I wanted to know what Amnesia was all about, so I watched Jesse Cox play Botha Let My People Go (Mix 2) - Dennis Pickett - Botha Let My People Go (Vinyl) through.
I'd never touch Deadly Preminition on my own - but thanks to GB, I have experienced the story without having to suffer through the agonizing gunfights. Right now I'm watching Deus Ex, Crysis 2 and Dead Island playthroughs because I'm interested in them, but not enough to spend money and play them myself. Not only pleasant to hear but gave a shitload of helpful tips. His "esophagus" problem part in particular. BulletproofMonk said:. Going to throw another vote in for Chip Cheezum and General Ironicus.
I have watched all the LPs on their site and enjoyed them all. I like watching LPs for different reasons. Sometimes it is because I love the game and I like seeing other people's approach to it or to hear their insight and thoughts about the game. Other times it is because I have no interest in playing the Botha Let My People Go (Mix 2) - Dennis Pickett - Botha Let My People Go (Vinyl) and I would like to see the story etc.
Lastly, in the case of Chip and Ironicus I just generally like the personalities and much like videos on this site I will watch a video about something I don't particularly have an interest in just because I enjoy the discussion and chatter of the people being recorded.
Well at the end of the day, Giant Bomb are the original and best at these kind of gameplay videos, Botha Let My People Go (Mix 2) - Dennis Pickett - Botha Let My People Go (Vinyl). It helps as they have an extensive history with games, plus the wit and humor to pull it off.
After that, pretty much everyone else is going to seem like second best, but they do it because Giant Bomb does it. They just can't do it as well. EuanDewar : "Got away with murder!
Well, I didn't really get away with it. I've got a license to murder License to Murder doesn't sound as cool as License to Kill. What is shitpile? Subscribe to RSS.
