What If You Made A Let's Play

Earlier today, I uploaded a let’s play vid of Lizzipon playing Jump Ultimate Stars as a little experiment of sorts. (I really need to get a new mic)

All of a sudden, an idea came to me. If any of you guys were going to create let’s plays, what games would you choose and what type of format/style would it be like?

Jun 17, 2012 at 10:09PM EDT

If I were you, Lou, I’d probably do a Let’s Play of some good ol’ fashioned Shaq Fu. Nobody like likes it, which makes it all the more fun.

Style? Most likely a simple “After Action Report” that simply gives mission details and tells of how I did certain things within the game, but in a concise format that may seem a little truncated to the average reader.

The game I’d do one of? Most likely one of my myriad military shooters, though I could easily do one in that style for Fallout 3 or any of the Mass Effect games. Could even do one for any of the aerial combat games I’ve got.

It would be typed out into a forum thread, not posted as videos. Reason being that I don’t have a capture card.

Matter of fact, I think that if I hook up that Turtle Beach Earforce XP500 headset to my PS3, I’d be willing to do a coop campaign as part of someone else’ LP, if they were willing to do Lost Planet 2 or Borderlands.

I’d have games ranging from well known to esoteric, simply because I’m bored. I’d play the game while making several sarcastic remarks about everything (mostly about how I’m doing and the characters).

Most likely RPGs like the Earthbound/MOTHER series. If not, I may find other games, such as the Super Mario Galaxy series or even Minecraft.

Jun 17, 2012 at 10:40PM EDT

Probably RPGs. More along the Sandbox Types like Skyrim or Fallout though.

Jun 17, 2012 at 11:17PM EDT

I’d probably do one of Fallout new vegas or Skyrim.

Jun 17, 2012 at 11:49PM EDT

Hack ’n Slash and RPG games. And NOT recording that with an iPhone.

Pretty much any single player game that’s not Sim or Strategy I have on my PC, Maybe I’ll use an Emulator, If I Need to choose, Portal 2, Cry of Fear, HL: Opposing Force, Majora’s Mask, Or Pokemon Diamond. Oh and Happy Wheels. As for style, I’ll just say what I usually think when playing a game.

A lets play of me doing stupid crap in a sandbox game. Who cares about me playing the story mode when there’s an old lady that I can push over and a car that needs to be flipped over?

I’d do it in the style of Two Best Friends Play with my older brother, since we have too much fun playing games together, even if they’re single-player.

The two of us would play fucking anything, I guess. Brawlers, shooters, puzzle games, things that suck, things that are blue, things that rhyme, and maybe even Dr. Suess.

A game I haven’t played. It can not be a JRPG which I could get lost in for hours not knowing where the hell I’m supposed to go without a walkthrough. So no Tales games for me thanks. Maybe a Shin Megami Tensei or single player on a FPS.

Jun 18, 2012 at 12:19AM EDT

Probably Minecraft or Terraria, not only are they my favorite games but I have a quite unique playstyle of run as fast as I can and kill everything. I’m actually planning to start an LP once I get some cash for a good microphone.

Jun 18, 2012 at 12:23AM EDT

I would do a Let’s Play of a 4 multiplayer co-op game. Zelda 4 Swords Adventures comes to mind, along with any of the Tales games.

Either that or a blind lets play of a Phoenix Wright game.

Jun 18, 2012 at 12:38AM EDT

I’d do something like and half-blind playthrough of fallout 3 maybe portal 2 or maybe amnesia if i was not such a wussy

Jun 18, 2012 at 12:58AM EDT

I’d do Paper Mario and quit after two days and then 6 months later start a stream of Half-Life and stop after a month because people stopped caring.

Jun 18, 2012 at 01:16AM EDT

Yume Nikki.
Probably play it in an ‘Extreme rage’ style.
But with a lot more cursing.
It would be terrible.

Jun 18, 2012 at 03:44PM EDT

Probably an FPS like CoD, Battlefield and Halo.

Or Minecraft.

I didn’t stop caring. I had to miss one stream because of some important stuff. Next thing I know, you stopped them. I actually miss them.

(Sorry for getting off topic)

Id probably make a Tales of Symphonia lets play
Solving most puzzles under a minute… unless it one of those very tedious ones…
Soloing every boss.
Show every treasure chest in each dungeon…or at least tell you.
I do have over 500 hours put into that game…

Jun 18, 2012 at 07:54PM EDT

@KI..D HA, that is by far the worst game out of the pack, especially compared to Dino Puzzle! As for me, I’d do something not totally saturated in the world of LPs. So NO Minecraft, NO FPS, NO big-shot RPGs, NO popular, steadily-rising indie games, none of that! I’d do something NOBODY WOULD EVER THINK OF LPING BECAUSE EVERYONE HATES THEM!! I’d do T.V. franchise games! People just love obvious money-making attempts! Scooby-Doo, SpongeBob, Harry Potter? Yeah, that’s what I’d do.

Jun 18, 2012 at 10:42PM EDT

I’d do one of Mother 3 so people can bask in its glory. It isn’t an overrated game for nothing. It’s actually pretty damn good.

But if we’re talking a Let’s Play of a game we haven’t played yet, I’d er…I guess I’d give one of those “HOLY CRAP THIS GAME ACTUALLY EXISTS” playthroughs, like when Two Best Friends played the Man Vs Wild game. Something PURELY for the lulz. So maybe even a survival horror so people can hear me curse every foul word in English and Spanish.

Jun 18, 2012 at 11:17PM EDT

Beta/Unreleased Games, and Half-Life 2/Ep1/Ep2. Also, all the indie games my dad always pirates and some emulated classics.

For the betas, I’ll just calmly talk in a informative voice, but for Half-Life…

I’ll be over-reacting at the most inappropriate time, such as screaming whenever something not that scary pops up. Also, it will be my first EVER play of the games though, so most of the reactions WILL be genuine.
