Now that I don't have as much time for gaming as I used to, I sometimes find myself watching Let's Play videos on youtube rather than actually picking up a game and playing it. Sometimes it's a game I started a few years ago and never really forgot about, but will never pick up again; sometimes it's the first in a series and I want to play the sequel; sometimes, I just don't like a game enough to play it, but I enjoy watching other people bash their heads against it (like the old days on the couch). Every now and again it allows me to remember what it was like playing a classic for the first time.
For whatever reason, good Let's Play videos have become some of my favorite video game experiences of the last year.
So I wanted to ask, does anyone know of some spectacular/funny/heartwarming Let's Play videos they would recommend?
I'll start. I recently got hooked on these two fellas playing Minecraft.
I should note that their misadventures are entertaining enough that they convinced my fiancée to put down the wedding planner for the first evening in months and buy the game immediately. Four hours later, she was still playing, and I was configuring a home Minecraft server.
