I actually checked out your channel, and I can agree it's pretty good. I would approve of you doing an LP of Monster Bash... Much more than that fat retarded idiot JonTron. (May the fleas of a thousand camels infest his armpits)
Keep up the good work, and congratulations on not having an annoying little-kid voice.

Not towards him, but towards other young LPers.
I can see how that could be construed as an insult, but I truly meant it as a compliment, as in "you're an exception to on otherwise detestable age group".

What amuses me is LPers that don't read game manuals then complain when they don't understand something.

THAT IS WHAT THE MANUAL OR HELP SECTION IS FOR! READ DAMMIT!

Oh my goodness, tell me about it. Something that irritates me probably more than it should is seeing novelty "retro-gamers" molesting the DOS classics and complaining that they're too hard or that the controls are bad. If I could master them at the tender age of 4, then that either means that I'm a gaming god or those manboys are as unskilled as they are unkempt.

Be quiet, nobody will be able to laugh at E.T. anymore if they read the manual and discover that it was competently designed.

And that is why I stick with games I already am familiar with and just stick odd constraints on my run. Boring? Maybe, but it's better than blindly playing something someone shoved under my nose because he wants me to make an ass of myself on Youtube (I'm looking at you, Kaizo Mario fans)
There was something here, but my yorp ate it.

To be fair the original kaizo Mario video was terribly funny at the level exit. I am almost tempted to put a similar trick in one of my mods, perhaps near an optional exit.

I just don't watch LPs. Partially because my internet connection is garghouse but mainly because if I want to see the game played I'll play the bloody game!
Keening_Product was defeated before the game.

There are nifty video downloaders that let you watch LQ youtube videos, a whole hour and a half movie can be as little as 35MB of data!

I don't know how anyone has the patience to watch an entire LP, personally.
Unless there's something special about it, like speedruns, I'm generally not interested. If I do watch one, I skip around for key parts or to spoil the ending.

The episode where raocow completely loses his patience with keen is pretty funny.

LPs of Sonic 2006 are especially atrocious, because it should be mandated law that everyone experience Sonic 2006's holy greatness by playing it.

It depends, the best LPs are the ones that are either insanely skillful, which keep you in constant awe and wishing you played that well, bumblingly stupid, which keep you amused with the sheer ineptitude or are just an honest run of the game, which let you share the experience of just playing the game.

Speedruns for me fall into category 1 (Even tool assisted ones) a few blind plays in category 2 (The ones where the players acknowledge that the bad playing is their fault.) #3s are the best, such as this walkthrough of Kingsley's Quest that the player obviously enjoyed, likes to share and frankly isn't the best at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrlD43whfm4

Reasons why I'd watch a Let's Play:

1) I want to know about a game, but not enough to play it.
2) The players are entertaining to listen to.
3) I want to see how someone else reacted to certain parts of a game that I've played.
4) Someone has done a really impressive playthrough (speed, skill) and it's entertaining to watch.

Sometimes, it's some combination of the above.

I'm just gonna use a little dark magicks to bring this thread back. Weoeooohoooyoooo!

So I just did a playthrough of the Ocflore & Keen Meets the Meats demos for my channel and I figured chu guys might like to see them.

Here's a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1XYXzfxMDM

and as fair warning, I curse. Not a whole ton, but it's there so shield thine virgin ears if you're concerned about that kinda garg.

It's still processing at the moment but i'm just gonna post it now, I really need to go to bed.
