YouTube favorites

Those of you who I chat with know that I've been watching YT LPs ("let's play") since last spring. They're an obsession of mine. Hilarity from enjoyable commentators plus the benefit of seeing games that I won't (or can't!) play. It started off with me watching an LP of Amnesia: The Dark Descent and expanded from there. Anyway, I wanted to leave links to my favorite people.

1) Tobuscus' gaming channel is under TobyGames. He was the first LP'r I watched and he's still basically my favorite. Hilarious and is the only person I watch who avoids swearing, lol. If you don't care to watch his LPs, search for "Tobuscus literal trailers" because they are the most hilarious things ever, I swear. (My favorite is Dead Space 2 literal trailer.)

2) MangaMinx has great videos and she's tied for my favorite LP'r. She's quicker on the uptake the Toby and finishes her games in far less videos (plus they're longer vids than Toby's 10min). Warnings do apply in that she swears - so maybe watch with headphones on if you live with someone, lol.

She's no longer on that channel and has moved to The RPG Minx. It's only been up for a month but the videos are wonderful. She's nearly done with Vampire Masquerade: Bloodlines as a single-player, but she's also go co-op vids. Watch anything with her and Deafinition - they're amazing together. I also highly recommend the "Skycraft" videos (especially if you know/play/have played Elder Scrolls and/or Minecraft).

3) Cry is a new favorite of mine. He cracks me up (which is like the #1 important thing for me and LP watching), videos are a good length, he plays a lot of games that my other LP'rs don't, and he does a nice editing job. He's played a ton of Amnesia custom stories, which is awesome.

4)The Heartless is someone I've also enjoyed. His LP of Amnesia cracked me up because he seemed to have the worst damn luck with running into monsters all the time. I really enjoyed the LP of Alan Wake, mostly for the interesting game than the commentary, I'll admit.

I also watch Helloween4545, though his commentary doesn't entertain me nearly as much as those mentioned above. He's played the twisted American McGee Alice games, which I recommend if you don't have time/ability to play the games yourself, they're really interesting.

Unlike others, I cannot get into iJustine. I don't even watch the vids that Toby teamed up with her for co-op for. I... don't like her commentary, to the extent that I'm actually mentioning it her and recommend you not watch her videos. :p

ANYWAY, that's me listing my fav YT peoples. Now you know what's usually playing on my computer while I write or browse the net and whatever else. :p

I have never heard of these Let's Play Youtube video things you speak of! It definitely seems like something to look into the next time I'm lost on Youtube, which happens often.

It gets addicting, I'll warn you! xD But they're sooo much fun.

It definitely should prove to be interesting as I'm a gamer but I'm currently without any way to actually...game. Solitaire is the best that this piece of metal junk can manage.

Ooo sad. I've usually been a console gamer, but when I updated my laptop in November I had in mind my steam account and some games I've been hoarding. I got 2 games as gifts plus I got myself Dragon Age: Origins... Last week I bought Minecraft >_> which really is addicting. But yeah, I have a ton of games now. I still prefer the first L4D (though I admit I like using the katana in L4D2 xD )
