The Top Ten

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.
My friend came up to me and said " You have to watch this guy named Chuggaaconroy, he's so funny and makes good lets play videos! " At first I was skeptical but after watching his Pokemon FireRed lets play I was Amazed on how good he was! Now I watch his videos every day of my life. His best are his Paper Mario and FireRed lets play.
[Newest]He is funny. His Let's plays are all in full and he provides information on how to get this and that in the games. Its really easy to follow and I always laugh at all his videos thanks to his jokes and puns.

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.
JoshJepson definitely deserves a spot this high on the list. He's not the best but he's funny and immature in so many ways! His lines like "OhMyGodWasTheHeckTheWhatTheWhatTheWhat?!?! " "SWIIRLY" and "Don't let your (insert weird thing from OoT) go at an angle" he's hilarious and one of the best. Definitely the best.
Its not supposed to go at an angle

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 paper

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!
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.
I've been a sub since 30,000, and I'm so proud to say that. He's so funny and just always cheers me up. I watch all of his videos and always can't wait for him to upload a new video. He is personally my favorite lets player of all time. I mean I love game grumps and jontron, but Mark is the clear choice to me
[Newest]He needs to be higher

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.
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!
She's hilarious, pretty, makes stupid but funny jokes, specializes in mostly blind lets plays, and is number ONE for me!

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.
Very hard to decide between the three RunawayGuys, but my gut tells me to choose Jon.
Someone has to piss off Emile

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 laugh

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.
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.

9Achievement Hunter
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.
[Newest]These guys make my days worth it

This girl has style, go drunkbells, you rock!
Love your lets plays
Donna are your boobs ready- Tyler Sedarwall Mario Galaxy Versus

The Contenders

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.

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
[Newest]Best lets player ever

I still remember every moment from Mario party
Maybe the best lets players together.

14Two Best Friends Play
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.
This guys are totally hilarious
While not as popular on their own channel away from Machinima, they still retain their raunchy yet hilarious charm.

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.
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 does
StephenPlays is my favourite let's player of all time. His content his very funny but not in an inappropriate way like attackingtucans. Things only get better when he plays games with his wife mal who adds an extra layer of fun and hilarity to the mix. He updates daily so you get new content everyday at the same time consistently and he genuinely cares about his fans. He also has a vlogging channel (stephenvlog) which is just as good and gives you an insight into their daily lives.

My first LPer, has a sarcastic/dry sense of humor but when all the creatures are together no one is more hilarious.

This guy is the only let's player that I've found so far that I can actually tolerate. This is because he picks games that he knows extremely well, and games that have great stories. The way that he plays these games makes me feel like I'm watching a movie with a little bit of commentary. His play through of Skies of Arcadia is my favorite.

One of the most laid back Let's Players I've known. His Fortune Street and Mario Party videos really stand out.
Kirby kirby kirby he's the let's player you know...

Funny and informative, every time I see one of his videos in my sub box it puts a smile on my face. He not only respects the games he plays, but the viewers that watch him. He even has a great partner to boot! This student of life is a gem of the "Let's Play"-ing community.
Nakateleeli just makes the most entertaining videos I have ever seen. His 1 update per day, flip - flopping between lps is a good system, and he chooses great and often obscure games. He deserves all the attention he gets and more.
Naka is the best lets player I have ever seen.
He is funny and very skinned at gaming, he even lets his subs pick a Lets play. He will all ways be Number 1 in my books

Really great videos. Puts a lot of work into her videos, and they are very entertaining.
Cares about her viewers and is really entertaining to listen to.
She really is the best out there I love her she is truly amazing


Most informative let's player I've seen; he really takes the prep time to make good videos. Will often show the "fun" way to get through otherwise tedious parts of games.
He does a lot of classic rpgs, but shows how to do them without tons of grinding.
Funny, smart, (while still somehow being energetic), and excellent at presenting games. Shows them the best way through the first time, never slips up.
Knows everything about the game his playing, very informative. Also likes to add some humor into his lets plays as well!

Shendijiro has to be one of the craziest let's players out there. Her random singing and "fail" moments never cease to make me laugh! Definitely a lot of potential to be seen from her! Totally recommend her!
Plenty of potential and talent behind this one. She delivers plenty of good material and is a hard worker. She's adorable and her videos are fun to watch. Give her channel a check, I recommend it.
I've seen all her videos! They're very entertaining and well made, something you don't see very often :D She makes Minecraft and Zelda lets plays.
[Newest]I recommend her. Her videos are always fun to watch!

Awesome Pokemon let's player :P

I vote mo yay mo


I think Cobanermani456 is the best LPer in the world because he LPs some of the best games ever and he is funny, has a great personality, has an awesome camera, and he has an awesome room!
He is so awesome and funny


I think he is my favourite YouTuber because he plays sonic games makes Q&A LIVESTREAMS and many other stuff, plus he is so funny

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.

In my opinion Gronkh is the best of all Lets players because his LPs are made with love and soul and he is a great entertainer. So check his Channel out if you speak German.
Cool and funny German Let's Player with over 2,400,000 subscribers now and 1215 Minecraft videos
Absolultly genius and funny German Let's Player. Has over 1,700 000 subscribers and over 1000 Minecraft videos.




Gotta catch em all, subscribingmon!

His Mario sports LPs are some of the most engaging I've seen on YouTube! His commentary is fast-paced and exciting. Highly recommended!

33TealGameMaster (TGM)
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!

The first LP by that I saw by him was... Silent Hill Downpour! I was surprised when I saw that he was a white guy. He has his curse words and phrases, but isn't vulgar. He has a great way of talking while playing, and rarely get's hung up.
He's amazing! Always makes me laugh! He should of been first in my opinion
No doubt about it, Hands down the best. His commentary is relevant and humorous, he is dedicated and is definitely my favourite let's player, possibly even YouTuber.

Good humor? Check!
Crazy editing style you won't find at any other LP? Check
Help me found some losts gems in the gaming world? Just check him out already.
He is a comedic genius.
This guy is hilarious and makes gameplays of a wide range of games on all platforms, I especially like his Grand Theft Auto online videos that he does with Yogscast Martyn. I am actually suprised he isn't in the top 10.


Great and cool lets players. Spencer, Chris, Tyler and Tyson... They will keep you intrigued!
Love new super Mario bros wii
These guys are awesome. Love their smashing sundays

Out of all the really popular Let's Players (I mean out of the top 100 most subscribed on youtube), Sparklez is probably the best. He's really funny, and seems genuine rather than just cashing in on the gaming channel trends. My favorite videos from him are his Surgeon Simuator videos, which are comedy gold.


40Omfgcata (Jesse Cox)
He does many lets plays and they are quality entertainment he may not be good at the game but he is very humorous and he has a lot of it and will finish the game as well as doing fan fridays every week
All hail the almighty space butterfly. May its wings flap for all eternity.


Great Let's Player! Full of enthusiasm and determination. Very laid back about situations unless its a horror game, then its all a different story. I love him! You should definitely check out his channel
Funny, laid back guy who's a pleasure to talk to. Enthusiastic.




Amazing Let's Player! Mostly horror, but he's funny and he loves his "Minions! " <3 Dedicated to making an amazing channel and many high quality videos for his subscribers.
I just love him! He loves to play horror games (he also play other games too) and is really funny!


He's just straight up funny
The man is crazy, and we love him for it.

He just says the most random things that make his videos so good.

Best voice ever, he is like a bald, Canadian, Morgan Freeman that plays indie games. Must watch!
Such a great voice and that baldness can only be achieved by this devilishly handsome man!
His bald shine makes my day







I love how loud and crazy she is
A wonderful and hilarious LPer. From screaming at monsters to murdering video game friends, there is an unique and charming comedy in all of her videos
The best female lets player out there. Constantly laughing, and what a laugh she has. Her play throughs are some of the best on YouTube, especially her Corpse Party play through. All Hail To The MangaMinx!


His humor is just the best!
Puns and jokes galore with this one. His casual, feel good videos are just fun to watch. This is his own channel away from the dynamic duo he is a part of in Retsupurae. He recently had an LP done with Mario Galaxy 2, and LP'd other games like Metroid Fusion and BattleToads.

Awesome pair of girls, best friends and they have fun with everything that they do, makes it enjoyable to watch them
They're really funny, and really interesting to watch. I hope I will expect more from these girls.
Great gamer girls, very interesting.
[Newest]I love your survival games lets plays! Do more!

I was first introduced to SuperJeenius through The Runaway Guys tournaments, and decided to look at some of his LPs. He's quickly become my favorite Let's Player. His commentary is witty and fast-paced, and he always puts tons of effort into his projects. He's extremely entertaining, and I highly recommend his LPs
SuperJeenius is amazing. He got me into the Persona series, his commentary is hilarious, and he is a very easy let's player to watch for viewers of all ages.


He knows what he is talking about and is really far from being a noob.

A lets player with a lot of potential

Clement deserves to be higher o this list! He is currently doing lets lays/ lets look at's videos on every Sonic game, and he is very funny, making jokes and running gags across multiple LP's (particularly calling Knuckles an idiot) and he always gives great coverage and playthroughs of every game he does.
The go to let's player for all things Mega Man and Eggman related. There's something just comforting about his commentary style.
He does series in croniclagual order main series for him is megaman and sonic series favorite videogae of all time sonic the hedgehog 2

The most thorough and informed player on YouTube. A joy to follow.

Super Replay always brings a great laugh, especially with horrible survival horrors like Overblood, Blue Stinger and Illbleed.



Nice german Lets Player and a friend of Gronkh. Plays very good games.

TheQuxxn plays The Sims franchise. Unfortunately, she recently passed away but her sister Aleisha has taken care of her channel.
I love her! I have her name to tribute


He's one of the few LPers who genuinely loves to do what he does, and he even donates his YouTube cash to charity, now that's something.
I LOVE this guy! He has a very dry/dirty humour, I love it! For once I actually laugh while watching playthroughs :P I might just laugh myself a 6-pack at this rate @__@


73The LightningSpirit78
Probably the first LPer that I ever came across on YouTube. Who says that girls can't be gamers?


Good variety and consistently funny.




The most thorough player I've ever seen.
"The Rambling, Gaming Dude" has his moments of hilarity, but covers Pokemon in depth as well as anyone.



Wish he was in the top 10

82Quill 18
This guy is a logical let's player who puts a lot of effort in to his lets plays, He does a wide range of games, mainly strategy games. I particularly like his lets plays of CIV5 and SimCity. This guy deserves to be in at least the top 25
I really like this lets player, I am really into strategy games and I prefer watching his lets plays than actually playing the games myself. "What could possibly go wrong? "

Combining an amusing accent with some of the most random and bizarre commentary you'll hear, raocow is absolutely hilarious. He tackles a lot of ROM Hacks and fangames and attempts to do them all WITHOUT savestates.

Slowbeef is easily one of the funniest people on the internet.
This list might not exist without him. His Retsuprae channel that he does with Diabeetus really stands out. Plus slowbeef himself is an entertaining fellow.
Sharp on wit and humor, he has been in the LP scene for years and possibly the one to start the trend of LPs to be more mainstream from the site SomethingAweful back in 2007. On his personal channel away from Retsupuae, one LP from this guy to check out is Snatcher on the Sega CD.

Spawning from SomethingAweful back in 2007, Slowbeef and Diabeetus been riffing on games and even other Lets Plays to this day. While not the most mainstream channel, they've developed quite the cult following playing and watching obscure games as well as other LP channels.






His channel is so great. He is always uploading videos of my favorite games. He is so readily available to talk about videos or to take constructive criticism. His channel may be small now but will definitely grow fast quickly. He is my favorite Let's Player
His channel is unbelievable. Really interactive with his fans and really enjoys what he does. Not a huge fan base but for a new channel growing very quickly.
Hilarious Let's Player Of horror games. Entertains his viewers with a perfect mix of humor and personality. Cares about his viewers tremendously.



He does a lot of DS games, and, other than chugga, is my fave, even if he's not well known.



A tiny undiscovered channel with so much potential. Deserves a signal boost.
This is the funniest guy on the YouTube website!


He is a great MC mod-showcaser.He's funny and he made a few cool songs on of my best favorites "I'll play minecraft".
