Top Ten Let's Players
The Top TenXW
My friend first introduced me to one of his Pokemon let's plays, (we were both very much obsessed with Pokemon at the time, and I still am) and I've been hooked ever since. His videos are great and I enjoy watching them. His jokes and puns may not be the best but they still succeed at making me laugh. The walkthroughs are easy to follow and though he may not be perfect, but he IS an overall good lets player. He has my vote because he was the first lets player I have ever watched on YouTube (and it sort of helps that he plays all of my favorite games/games that I actually own or need help on) and he is by far my favorite let's player.
The first let's player I ever saw a full let's play of was Chuggaaconroy's. It was Super Mario Sunshine for the Gamecube. He says it's his least favorite, but I liked it. Then I saw his Earthbound let's play, and it taught me a lot about him. And my favorite part about him is that he makes bad puns! Oh, the bad puns! How many times I've told a bad pun and I'm the only one laughing. He also gives me lots of information about video games and his Walkthrough skills even are great, as I followed his Wind Waker Let's Play, which I can't wait to follow again once the release of Wind Waker HD comes around. He also had the first let's player I ever watched work on his Crystal Let's Play, he did some of the art design. His name is Koshisushi, not a bad let's player himself.
Set the scene, small nerd, 2009, didn't know much about gaming at all. I'm looking around on YouTube, and managed to stumble upon a little game called Mother 3. Game opens up, I hear Emile's voice. Over the entire series I'm completely enveloped in his comedy, his puns, and his overall bouncy personality. Chuggaaconroy was the one who introduced me to gaming and will always have a special place in my heart. I highly suggest watching him if you haven't already.
Chuggaaconroy was one of the first people I've seen on YouTube period, and he just got stuck to me for so long that I can't not vote for him.V42 Comments
Josh is one of the very few Let's Players who actually try to please his fans. He has an excellent sense of humor that never gets old when trying to watch his videos. Truly one of the best Let's Players, and definitely deserves a spot on this list.
Its not supposed to go at an angle
For sure one of the funniest people I have seen on YouTube! Not too random (Pewdiepie, Markiplier) but not entirely boring (Captain Sparklez). Nice job Josh!V1 Comment
NCS is quite the rarity. In Psychological terms, he can easily be seen as a child trapped in a grown man's body. I belive that his let's plays displays an unrivaled look at games from the initial view most of us had when we began to play games.
I totally agree. His game choice is on the niche side, but he's quite genuine in his enthusiasm about the games he plays. That's an important (and rare) quality in YT Let's Players.
And win the bathroom... Plants vs zombies I see balloon zombies get some more toilet paperV5 Comments
Very hard to decide between the three RunawayGuys, but my gut tells me to choose Jon.
Proton Jon is so great, I put him in my Pokémon Red LP. Bottom line, Jon can never be paralleled. Not even chuggaaconroy can match Jon in epic humor. I do like both, but my vote goes to Jon.
He might not be the very best Let's Player ever (that honor goes to Chuggaconroy), he's still a really good one and deserves a higher spot. Even Chuggaaconroy himself thought ProtonJonSAwas better than him!V3 Comments
Why did I vote him? He's the best. he's funny, like really funny, but not in the stupid way. He cheers me up, and for some reason I just like his voice... he's not annoying, and he interacts with the watcher. I enjoy watching him. He's (mostly) clean in his videos, which is a plus for me, and he is the one who got me to actually LIKE video games. And shout out to my brother, who got me to watch him!
I voted for Markimoo because he is great, my friend who showed me him about two years ago and I have never looked back and have watched every single video. everything about him, his personality shines though you are griped in to the game just as if you were playing them it like he is in the room with him. he has a fantastic voice and so funny you are laughing with him not at him. he also actually appreciates all his views and interacts with you. what more can I say, he is the best. King of squirrels and FNAF!
Markiplier is fantastic. He always makes me laugh with his videos and His voice is incredible. His jump-scare LPs are so funny. I think my favourite has to be his LP of "The Witch's House". Anyway. All in all a great guy and he's so appriciative of his fans and what they've brought him. Such a big heart and great humour. I love him.
Mark isn't just funny, he's relatable. No matter where he is or what's happening, he cares about his fans. He even posted to videos from the HOSPITAL just so he could reassure us that he's fine.V47 Comments
Lucahjin is such a good let's player. She has great voice acting, good humour and plays good games. She is probably the best female let's player. Furthermore, "miss no arms" also thinks she's the best.
Lucahjin is incredible, she's my favorite let's player hands down and beats the boys by a mile. She's hilarious, has awesome commentary, and includes her viewers better than any other let's player I've seen. My hat's off to Lucahjin, that chick flat out rocks.
She's hilarious, pretty, makes stupid but funny jokes, specializes in mostly blind lets plays, and is number ONE for me!
An amazing lets player! He current superstar saga lets play is amazing, and her super paper Mario lets play was the best lets play of 2014! Funny, cool, and just awesome!V6 Comments
If you want hilarious immaturity, he's your guy!
He's probably my favorite Let's Player. With hilarious inappropriate jokes, funny reactions (Majora's Mask Spider House Freakout), funny gags (Congratulations, it's a grandma) and more, he is definitely one of the best.
While our leader chuggaconroy really owns the informative side of let's plays, attackingtucans represents the fun and hilarious side that some of those in the top 10 seem to be missing. He introduced versus and shows some of his personal life, and is one of the few who can keep my interest.
Your brilliant please do a Mario galaxy 2 versusV7 Comments
PeanutButterGamer is a great Lets player. I remember watching him a year ago about to go to Michigan with my new computer and remembering how he made things into great jokes. He is very funny and very entertaining to watch even though I'm ok with him being 10th I will still vote for him.
He is hilarious and I haven't watched one of his videos without laughing
I love PBG so much is hilarious I can't watch a single one of his videos and not laughV1 Comment
I had thought Achievement Hunter would be in the top 5, because it's so hilarious. Geoff, Ray, Jack, Gavin, Ryan, and Michael have the funniest lets plays ever! Minecraft, Grand Theft Auto 5, and VS. are my favourite to watch.
These men have the art of Let's Plays down to a science. They always deliver on the comedic gold, have good video ideas and all of them add an element to the group that is irreplaceable. 10/10, would watch at parties.
They produce so many different kinds of videos, there's something for everyone to love. That coupled with their ability to not care what other people think makes them a the best in my opinion.
Some of the funniest guys on the internet!V19 Comments
Donna are your boobs ready- Tyler Sedarwall Mario Galaxy VersusV2 Comments
An amazing lets player that plays legend of Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, and so many other titles I can't even think of right now.
Watching him do lets play's are amazing.
This cat prides himself on capturing the immersive and story-like elements of the titles he plays. What sticks out about him is that he usually doesn't play to win (though he mostly does); he plays to enjoy the game, and he plays to teach. He cares about his community and pretty much welcomes everybody. I rarely see a comment he hasn't responded to. Gamers looking for a mature, more thoughtful, no-nonsense style of LP will NEVER be disappointed.
Main games: Think he started with Total War, but has a big Long Dark, Planetbase, Civilization, and Master of Orion following right now.
Super dedicated and amazing female let's player who definitely holds a place of her own. While a lot of game she does might not be new games, Masae adds her own spin to them and is really just awesome. Also, her artwork is phenomenal.
Not only is Masae an entertaining watch, she is surprisingly more social than what one would think of as a female gamer. She has extra people join her videos once in a while, and helps other people out as well. As an added bonus: Chugganela!
Masae is an amazing and hilarious character. Never a dull moment, especially around Chuggaa.
Nova is personally my favorite lets player because their isn't a single video he has that is boring, and he is one of the only lets players that legit makes me laugh really hard, even if real life videos everything about him is funny.
One thing I like about Nova is the fact that he can make rage videos that are always good for a laugh (The "Yup" playlist is a good example of these. ) and yet at the same time, he can make videos that show his serious side extremely well.
Hilarious and always fun to watch. He may not be the most observant or best player but he has fun with each video, making sure the viewer shares the experience.
Nova is greatV2 Comments
A combination of three funny guys.
. One is charming and constantly spouts puns
. Another is sarcastic and witty
. The final one is the lovable underdog, who has amazing one-liners!
Chugga and Proton are both at the top so technically this spot is higher
Involves many of the top let's players on this list playing games together, mainly Proton Jon, Chuggaconroy, and NCS. They also have several guest let's players like Josh Jepson, MasaeAnela, Lucahjin. I enjoy every video they do.V4 Comments
You are a very great let's player. I'm Tristan. I watch a lot of your Pokemon let's plays. My favorite starter is Zuko the typhlosion.
He's really good, especially at editing
My favourite color is purple as well
I like it that he skips the boring trainer battles.V4 Comments
I first learned about this guy through Chuggaaconroy, and he slowly advanced to my status of favorite lper ever. I enjoy his blind lets plays, his normal lets plays, his collaborative lets plays, his demos, and his collaborations. He does a ton of different things, including quite possibly the best vlog on youtube, and they are all thoroughly entertaining, and very funny.
Provides a wide variety of great content and works hard to release videos
He is the best because he is nice and acctually puts work into his lets plays and also not a sell out and definitely loves what he doesV2 Comments
They some knowledge about how games are supposed to work (mechanics/frame rates/formats due to them actually working on indie and mainstream games occasionally).
They know a fair bit about many of the consoles that have been released from the early machines to the latest gens.
Their reactions to in-game events are genuine and really funny
Honestly they make you feel just like a part of the group. They appreciate their fans and make it feel like you're actually hanging out with your best pals.
While not as popular on their own channel away from Machinima, they still retain their raunchy yet hilarious charm.
Hilarious dudes, with good energyV6 Comments
My first LPer, has a sarcastic/dry sense of humor but when all the creatures are together no one is more hilarious.
One of the most laid back Let's Players I've known. His Fortune Street and Mario Party videos really stand out.V2 Comments
Teal is my favourite, I love when he reads dialogue because he really knows how to make characters seem real and it makes me laugh every time.
Amazing guy very fun cares about fans how much more awesome can you get, oh yeah he uploads 10-12 videos a day cool right he needs to be in the top 25 LPers if not that top 20!
This guy, man, this guy!
- Has about 500 LPs on his channel
- Amazing commentary
- "My little Skylanders, my little Skylanders! " Never gets old
