I don't know if you count things like this, but the little Oni was very fond of the works of mariomario54321.  Those are usually less of a 'Let's Play' and more like someone adding 'artistic verisimilitude to an otherwise bald and unconvincing narrative.'  (Lit-geek points if you get the reference!)

"I canít help it. I was born sneering."

Possibly one of my favorite lines out of anything I have ever read.

Also, back to the original topic at hand, I love LPs.  lparchive is definitely my guilty pleasure, plus the occasional video LP I stumble across when I'm looking through youtube.  I will watch anything and everything TheDarkId has put his hands to.  But of course, I would be remiss if I didn't give props to the very first LP I ever watched and possibly the best LP ever.

I like using those for games I've never been able to play or can't currently afford to play or will never have time to play. Lollipop Chainsaw was pretty neat, and a few others from the days before games were on discs.

I love watching LPs if they have anything funny or informative to say. I hate it when there are people who are completely silent for the entire time they play, it's just so boring to watch then and it kinda defeats the purpose of a lets play, ya know what I'm saying?

I adore Two Best Friends Play, Game Grumps and Continue?. I'm even wearing my Game Grumps shirt right now xD It's TENOUTTATEN Though I do watch a half dozen others from time to time.

*Stares forever* The words cannot match my shame for saying I watched one or two of his things..

I wanted to strangle him.

Day9Tv and Two best friends are pretty much my most frequently watched stuff though. If I could ever love a man intimately and without reserve, it'd be Sean Plott. My buddy wants Nick Plott.

He used to be kind of funny Dx then he realized his ad revenue came from trying to devour the webcam while making silly voices.

Joudas is a low-key LPer who doesn't have a vast library of work, but his LP of Bastion lets the game talk for him; He does 100% of the game, and Logan Cunningham's soothing narration as Rucks, the Mancer makes it allllll good.

Its even better when he's on face cam. Watching him laugh and hearing it is just great. He laughs so much at times he almost falls off his chair XD

This one is great:

I love watching Let's Plays, I find them really entertaining and usually put them on when I'm working.

Currently I'm watching SplitableInfinitive's blind run of Final Fantasy IX which I haven't played in years but had a real craving for. Let's Plays are great for me to experience games I don't have the time to play or money to buy and to re-experience those games I love but no longer have access too. I also enjoy watching them for games I do play such as Minecraft and more recently Cube World as I get used to the game myself.

I've really been enjoying CaptainSparklez LP of 'SkyDen'.  Possibly because it reminds me of how much MC I actually know, when I can yell at the screen 'You should do it this way!'  Also, his conversations with the NPCs are funny.  He seems to remember that kids watch his channel, so he 'earmuffs' places where many people would be cussing a blue-streak.

This is a big plus for me as my kids are often around and my eldest enjoys watching minecraft Let's Plays as well. It's always a good thing when I can find some videos where the swears are at a minimum to non-existent but the person is interesting and entertaining.

The worst I've heard out of his mouth is 'frickin', 'darn it' and some inarticulate 'Grrrr's.  (I think it's kind of cute on his part, myself.)

I don't really 'watch' them. But I like the ones where you have these tactical RPGs and stuff which are too tedious to play alone and name the characters after yourselves and laugh at who doesn't survive. Dwarf Fortress and XCom are favorites to watch.
