TheSw1tcher is about the only more traditional LP channel I still occasionally watch, mainly because seeing them suffer through dredge like Omikron has a great 'train wreck in slow motion' quality to it. 

 

Heeeeey. I love The Sw1tcher/Super Best Friends. Their sense of humour matches up with mine so perfectly, and seeing them slowly driven mad by the absolutely godawful Omikron has been hilarious.

 

I don't watch LPs so much as just have them running in the background as white noise and something to flick my eyes over to every now and then when I hear something interesting. It's a great way of seeing games that I have some interest in, but not enough to actually play for myself, whether it's because they're in a genre I don't get along with or, in the case of Omikron, they seem utterly atrocious. I've always been interested in Silent Hill, for example, but I'm too much of a wuss to play scary games for myself so it's been nice seeing the Best Friends play them (constant jokes about fart gas might spoil the mood for some, but not this guy  :P). I'm hoping they're going to do Resident Evil 7 next year.

 

Otherwise, I like ChipCheezum a lot. He puts an insane amount of work into his stuff, making sure to show every little bit of the game and doing multiple takes to get his gameplay looking as interesting as possible. His Wonderful 101 LP taught me so many things I'd completely missed when I played that game. Supergreatfriend is another great one. He picks really interesting games to LP, and he's got a great voice.

 

Occasionally I'll watch a bit of Seraphim17 casually waltzing through every game on the hardest difficulty when I really want to feel bad about myself.

Best Friends Suffer Through Omikron FTW!!!

I typically watch Markiplier, Barbell Gaming, and SplatterCatGaming. I use to watch the Grumps but... eh. The Switcher is also pretty good as well. Since I am a Dark Souls fan, I also visit Oroboro, VaatiVidya, and Fightin Cowboy every once in a while.

Honestly I do not wven watch actual TV nowadays just because everything seems edgy, boring, or uninteresting.

My only experience with LPs is...well, not really LPs, just Jim Sterling's non-Jimquisition stuff. And also being part of (as of now) a low-key series.

 

If streaming my playthroughs of stuff like ME2, 3, random Halo 5 matchmaking stuff and whatnot counts in that dept, I guess you can count that too.

Currently streaming some Overwatch here with Ambad and other folks, for those of you who might be keen.


It should also be noted I have pretty drunk.

That makes me realize I should game with SSLF more. I haven't played Overwatch in forever.

So streaming Overwatch doesn't work too well for me, because my internet is crap and trying to both run a multiplayer game and stream at once just leads to dropped frames and an unplayable ping a lot of the time. I've recorded a few sessions, but going back to do editing (I don't like dumping the unedited, non-live footage) hasn't been something I've had a lot of time to do.

 

That being said, I can stream single-player games okay, but I've found I'm not that entertaining when trying to do commentary on my own. If anyone would be up for joining me in commenting/deriding me to the audience as I flounder through random games, I'd love to give that a whirl; maintaining a skype voice call while streaming should, I hope, still be within the realm of what my connection can handle

Getting popular by making fun of someone's efforts to play games? Sign me the hell up.

I make fun of Hawk all the time when we play games, so I'm sure I could deride someone else as well. ;)

 

And while not technically a Let's Play, I consider this one of the funniest videos on the internet. (Language warning)

You could use Discord instead. It doesn't lag you like Skype does and is supposed to be used in conjunction with gaming and has specific stream settings.

It does lack video calling features, but given your internet I get the feeling that wasn't on the agenda in the first place :P

I've been wanting to be able to stream myself playing games for ages now, and Scorp and I were also trying to find a way to do it together, since we ramble and banter the entire time we play anything. I really wish we could've recorded us playing SWTOR back in the glory days when we were first playing it together... Good times. :P

 

Unfortunately, my internet sucks too hard. If anyone has any wizard tricks to be able to stream while also playing online games at the same time if your internet is the equivalent of a legless zombie trying to drag packets back and forth between your PC and whatever you're connected to, do let me know. I'd love to get in on that, and so would Scorp.

I should get back to streaming some time. Put that 150mbsp download and around 100 upload to work. :P

Tangentially related, I actually made that Discord channel. Should start putting it to use tomorrow night.
