I've watched a few - the occasional horror game (that I could never get through myself) or some Minecraft survival maps (mostly for the commentary).

I've certainly watched my fair share of Let's Plays over the years. ^^ I even tried running a screenshot-based LP of my own here on Elliquiy once, though I wound up quitting it due to lack of readers.  It was for a rom hack of Pokemon White, and one where things were made more challenging than the standard version of the game.

I'm actually debating starting up another screenshot LP, as well. ^^; I'd be playing a different Pokemon game this time, though, and setting a little challenge for myself to make it more interesting.

I missed seeing that one, Kuno - but I have been enjoying Neysha's rendition of Sarah Palin in Fallout: New Vegas.  (I didn't know that screen-shot based LPs counted.)

Yes, and you were pretty much the only reader there at the end, from what I could tell. ^^; Though, I will admit that my own decision to catch all 649 Pokemon in the game certainly didn't help.  I was stuck at a point in the game where I was having to repeatedly grind for money, just so I could get enough Pokeballs to catch everything.  That wasn't very fun, and since most of the people that had shown interest in the LP at the start had vanished anyway, well...

It's a mistake I won't be making if I try to start up another LP, though. ^^ In fact, for the challenge I've got in mind, I'd only be catching perhaps seven Pokemon in the game, total.

I missed seeing that one, Kuno - but I have been enjoying Neysha's rendition of Sarah Palin in Fallout: New Vegas.  (I didn't know that screen-shot based LPs counted.)

I missed the Sarah Palin in Fallout LP, myself, so I think I'm going to be doing some reading, tonight.

I watch A LOT of lets plays

And a lot of lets players including:

Game Grumps.
Two best friends
Pyschadelicsnake - If you ever want a good laugh at someone freaking out at a horror game watch him
Vash12349 - Awesome lets player, perhaps one of my favorite, especially when he dies a lot and speeds it up and becomes chipmunk vash

And the odd minecraft stuff around as well.

In regards to Let's Plays, I tend to go for the LParchive.org for completed Let's plays.

People that I preferentially follow for LPs include:

Psychedelic Eyeball (Races, Super meat Boy, impenetrable accents)

Geop (Assassin's Creed, AC2, Shadow of the Colossus, Dark Souls, and preparing to do AC: Brotherhood)

Vicas (Mario 64 with his feet, co-commentating/trolling Geop for Dark Souls, Yoshi's Island, 'Competent' Runs of Metroid Prime Trilogy when Slowbeef was bumblefucking his way through, Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, and a few others)

Kuvo (Formerly lead of Tipping 40's, now solo/co-commentator)

Squint (Probably The Definitive Demon's Souls LP, several strategy games)

Dazzling Addar (Mostly co-commentating, 100% of Donkey Kong 64)

PoptartsNinja (An amazing Narrative Lp of Star Trek Online, the Snarkiest Light-side Sith warrior ever in the ongoing LP of SW:ToR, and an ongoing 'Let's rewrite battletech' LP where the clans invaded in 3032, instead of 3050)

Gravedust (Tabletop game designer; created 'Battlepods' as a concept for a tabletop game that became glorious as it's a fusion of playtesting and balance, LP shenanigans, and well-written (plus well-drawn) fluff and character profile assets.)

Skippy Granola (Bulletstorm, Rage, Several french adventure games such as Syberia, and ongoing Co-op shenanigans in Saint's Row 3; genuinely loves the games he plays, even if he roundly bashes the parts that would frustrate anyone. Also has the funniest co-commentators, such as PanzerSkank)

Chip and Ironicus. (Check their page, start at their oldest Lp, and go from there; these two guys are amazing and riff off of one another amazingly well)

Coolguye and TheLastRoboKy, aka Timewarriors. (One aussie, one yank, amazing friendship and a love of cool games)

Accounting Nightmare. (Another Aussie, She ~destroys~ all 3 PS2 Devil May Cry games, on their hardest (not-gimmick) difficulties. her DMC 4 LP is on hold due to her PS3 killing itself, plus RL obligations.)

Yoshesque. (Why do Australian players like twitch games? She ~mutilates~ Bayonetta, getting platinum medals on all parts.)

Bobbin Threadbare. (Quiet, Low-key, very informative; has done LP's of Loom, Acadamegia, All 3 Thief games, and a dual-LP of Alpha Protocol, one as a no-kill, one as a 'I am a murderous asshat', and is just wrapping up on Rogue Galaxy)

And, of course, a pile of other LPers that I can't remember the names of.

I can't recall how long it's been since I've started watching them, but I think one of my first was HellfireComms.  They kind of got boring after a while and I moved onto others that seemed more active.  I guess because of this NintendoCaprisun is one of my favorites, other than just him being generally more humble and down to earth than a lot of others - people talk about PewDiePie being bad, but I don't understand why either Chuggacconroy or JoshJepson are popular either because they seem to be pretty full of themselves.  AlChestBreach seems to have a bit of nonsense in his videos but they are still funny, and there's a lot of neato pc games and mods he shows off that I can't experience myself considering mine is pretty bad. :P

Two best friends is pretty great.  Used to watch Game Grumps but Jon's left recently.  Have tried watching some with the new guy but he's just not really funny to me.  Retsupurae is awesome, though they're more about making fun of bad LPers. :P  I'd hope they wouldn't make fun of me but it's possible if I ever get to have more than a couple subscribers...that said I haven't been able to continue any of the LPs I have up at the moment unfortunately.  Anyway, through them I learned about Chipcheezum I think his name is and he's pretty good.

As far as not-so-favorites go, there's Lucahjin, AttackingTucans, Quadraxis14(though it seems he's been very busy for a long time now), MageCaptainGilshanks, probably a few others I'm forgetting.  My girlfriend started making her own recently and they've been fun to watch but I may be a bit biased. :P

I had no idea the thing I was doing even had a name.

Outside of reviews and tge occassionsl speed run I don't think I've ever watched a LP.

No wait there was one I saw for Amnesia the Dark Desecent which was hilarious because the guy apparently disliked horror games greatly and played it with lights off and headphones on.

I've heard rumors of that game.  Gotta wonder what the 'replacement clothing' bill was after that.

Not on youtube, but TheDarkId did a rip-roaringly hilarious LP of RE4 (Followed by all the REs that preceded it, actually). Lunethex is just finishing a LP of RE6, which is so over-the-top ludicrous as to be amazing, and there's at least one Co-Op LP of RE5 in the Archive.

http://lparchive.org/Resident-Evil-4-%28Screenshot%29/ (TDI's LP; It's a bit old, but the man is made of snark and uses alternate character interpretation to make things even snarkier)

http://lparchive.org/Resident-Evil-5/ (RchimpCola and Sintrapod Co-op and shenanigan their way through half of Africa)

http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3532369 (Lunethex' almost-completed LP of RE6; he's just about to finish up with showcasing Mercenaries mode.)

I'm a big fan of Chip Cheezum and General Ironicus.  I'm currently watching their Metal Gear Rising LP, and it's great.

Lowtax and Shmorky of Something Awful fame recently took up Let's Plays.  They specialize in Grand Theft Auto rip-offs, Cry of Fear (an ill-designed Swedish survival horror game), and weird and offbeat online games.

I'm a fan of Chuggaaconroy, NintendoCapriSun, and Proton Jon are very skilled.  They have a preference for Nintendo games, although that's not the only ones they do.

Yes to both of those!

I'm a big fan of all the Mindcrackers, I especially enjoy Veckz and Etho though I subscribe to all of them, except BlameTheController (due to his penchant for bragging) and DocM (I hate his lip smacking).

I also follow Joe Hills, Biffa, KaralisSkyzm and Pungence from Hermitcraft (Cleo too).

Rosie is one of the most determined players I have ever seen. In her current LP of Vechz's Super Hostile map, she keeps derping, but refuses to be defeated. She's winning by sheer stubbornness. 
 
Cricken is hilarious in his edit skills.

2girls1minecraft are an adorable duo. They are awesomeness.

SpagersHat were hilarious but they died off.

I watch Honey and Phorxy when they do stuff, but it's not frequently.

I read/watch a variety of LPs, but I don't think I will ever get tired of group LPs of New Super Mario Bros. Wii.  Even if people play with the best of intentions (not that anyone ever does), people inevitably get in each others' way and it dissolves into a beautiful frenzy of griefing.

The Mercenaries 2 LP by helloitsdan and lithuanian dad was also amazingly funny.
