Top Ten Let's Players

The Top Ten

1 Chuggaaconroy Chuggaaconroy

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.

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.

Is there anyone more likable? No, there isn't. Put Tim at number 1, he deserves it.

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.

I LOVE NCS. Him, ProtonJon, and Chugga are the BEST. Watch NCS, trust me, you will laugh. He was also one of my first YouTubers. He makes excellent videos. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

3 Lucahjin

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!

Insane streams & chicken wiings! :D

4 JoshJepson

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!

Josh was the first lets player I ever watched and he introduced me to all of these LPers like chugga, attackingtucans, donnabellez, NCS, Lucahjin, and protonjon

5 Markiplier Markiplier Mark Edward Fischbach (born June 28, 1989), known online as Markiplier, is an American YouTube personality. Originally from Honolulu, Hawaii, he began his career in Cincinnati, Ohio, and is currently based in Los Angeles, California.

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'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

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.

6 ProtonJonSA ProtonJonSA

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.

Someone has to piss off Emile

He's just too good

7 PeanutButterGamer

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

He's a perfect kids channel

Awesome channel. - Marxcute19

8 MasaeAnela

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.

She is a human.

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!

MasaeAnela is my favourite female LP'er and 3rd favourite of all time. I love her Zelda LP's so much that I watch is over and over again.

P.S. She's so CUTE! - SupahGenie64

9 AttackingTucans

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 versus

10 Achievement 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.

They have the term "Let's Play" Trade Marked. I'll let that sink in. Also, they just make hilarious content. I agree with another voter that they have Let's Plays down to a science. They know what people like, how to connect with their community, and somehow satisfy that little primal urge for occasional chaos we all crave.

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.

11 ZeldaMaster2010

He does a variety of games and doesn't always stick to just Legend of Zelda. He is also very funny when it comes to co-op stuff with his friends

ZeldaMaster was my first Let's Player I ever watched when I got into the whole Youtube Gaming Community, and was my inspiration for my Let's Play portion of my Gaming Channel. He's The BEST! Unique, consistent, and very funny, his voice is what keeps his comedy on point. And he is one of the most EPIC Let's Players of all time, with the little epic touches he adds to his videos! :) :D

12 Donnabellez

Love your lets plays

This girl has style, go drunkbells, you rock!

Donna are your boobs ready- Tyler Sedarwall Mario Galaxy Versus

13 PurpleRodri

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.

I always loved his Pokemon videos. I also loved his New Super Mario Bros. U gameplay. - SupahGenie64

My favourite color is purple as well

Nice pokemon lets player

14 TheRunawayGuys

Should be higher on the list, a very entertaining group.

I still remember every moment from Mario party

Maybe the best lets players together.

Easily the best co-op channel EVER.

15 UberHaxorNova

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.

He's such a likable dude and his videos are so entertaining. God bless Anal

16 Two Best Friends Play

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.

Best jokes consistently.

17 Shofu

One of the more entertaining Pokemaniacs out there.

Hilarious, and chilll. Despite him being hilarious when he gets mad, lol! His Pokemon Rom Hack LPs are unmatched, and if you haven't played them either, it's even funner to watch and react to the fan made storylines with him! :) :D Also, "Hello?! " Where is that Pokemon Insurgence UPDATE, Mr. Creator, I want to see Shofu continue this amazing Let's Play and complete this amazing fan game! :) :D

18 StephanPlays

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 does

Yeah, chugga a good lper, but I prefer stephenplays

V 2 Comments

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

Seamoose is the most sarcastic Let's Player. He's also quite the Dark Souls expert.

His sarcasm will always make him my favorite YouTuber. - ClicheUsername69

20 SlimKirby

One of the most laid back Let's Players I've known. His Fortune Street and Mario Party videos really stand out.

He should be higher than 18th.

Kirby kirby kirby he's the let's player you know...

First YouTuber I watched. Loved his Mario Party let's play. - ClicheUsername69

21 MunchingOrange

TheTopTens sucks mo should be1st

I vote mo yay mo - e9090

Very great LPs

He is very fuuny and does awesome Pokemon playthroughs.

22 GameGrumps

When I go to the Grumps channel, I often find games that I've never heard of, and games that I wouldn't think of playing. It brings a splash of life to a site dominated by fnaf (even though they played it). The humor of the grumps is very different from many channels, and I often anticipate the next episode because I want to hear the epic (or not so epic) conclusion to one of the grumps' stories. The main show on the channel features Danny and Arin, who both have different types of comedy, but compliment each other's styles. It used to feature Jontron, who was also amazing, and those episodes are still up, having attracted much of the fanbase. One thing I love about the grumps is the Nintendo games. I'm a bit partial to Nintendo, and I always love to see a channel playing their games. Overall, the grumps are just a bunch of friends having a good time, and I have a good time watching them.

The Game Grumps are amazingly funny. The thing that they have that few other channels on YouTube have is that they're just like friends hanging out and making each other laugh. I can't count how many times I've watched a video crying with laughter. They are the nicest, loveliest people who care so deeply about their fans. They consistantly upload 3 videos a day, so if I'm ever having a bad day, there's always something new to make me laugh. They can go from making me laugh so hard my sides ache, to talking about their lives so openly and sharing so much about themselves that they just make me love them so much more. They are such inspirational, humble, hilarious dorks who make every day better.

I can easily say that the Game Grumps are what got me addicted to online Let's Plays in the first place. I came in after Jon had already been replaced by Danny, but I still loved all of their videos. Even Ross and Barry have their own charms that make them funny and likable. But as for the best Grump, the award goes to Arin hands-down.

23 TealGameMaster (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!

This guy, man, this guy!
- Has about 500 LPs on his channel
- Amazing commentary
- "My little Skylanders, my little Skylanders! " Never gets old

24 Marriland

Marriland is one of the most family friendly players and has a great grasp on the game. He's known for his wedlockes and walk through guides.

Awesome Pokemon let's player :P

25 MadameWario

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 - Cartermd

She's really funny because she's super casual.

26 NakaTeleeli

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

How can you not love this guy?
- Has one of the largest lists of LPs I have ever seen.
- Sometimes joined by the also rediculously funny ElementalOgre we all know and love.
- He respects every game he plays.
- I can laugh my ass off at some of his LPs.
- "Damnit Teddie! " Persona 4
- "Cragnons have problems Cragnons cannot solve! " Paper Mario
One of my favourite YouTubers ever =D

27 Necroscope86

I would highly recommend this Let's Player. He is so funny and goes out of his way to explore games as fully as possible. The board range of available playlists means that his channel has something for pretty much anyone.

Shame he's stopping his recordings excellent lets player

The dude is a Brittish LP'er and has done thousands and thousands of videos and so many games. He has tripled his subscribers in the past couple years (81,000) I believe and he is pretty funny. Lots of dry humor but the way he tries not to curse but uses other words is funny and how he makes fun of himself when he misses something or can't solve a puzzle is commical! Please check his channel out! He really is an underrated LPer

28 SuperJeenius

The actually most normal person I see. All else I can say? He's funny. He's really just kind of normal and reasonable. Most of his videos are a bit longer and kind of relaxing.

A very intellectual Let's Player and his LP's are more on the relaxing and interesting side, as he does blinds, which I favor in most Let's Players. His Ace Attorney Let's Play seemed to be the perfect game to best reflect his witty and intellectual style and that's why that LP caught my interest and became his best in my opinion! :") :D

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. - BlackPikmin1998

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

29 HCBailly

Funny, smart, (while still somehow being energetic), and excellent at presenting games. Shows them the best way through the first time, never slips up.

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.

Knows everything about the game his playing, very informative. Also likes to add some humor into his lets plays as well!

Plays pretty much exclusively jrpgs. 100%s every rpg he plays. Edits out all repeat battles and grinding. His lps are well prepared and he never gets boring. He's played all the final fantasies and is on his way to playing every dragon quest game. He also plays a lot of unique rpg gems.

He is my personal favourite let's player. Definitely the best watch if you like rpgs.

34 Cobanermani456

He is so awesome and funny - DizzyKid117

He does very good Mario Lp's.

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!

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

35 Gronkh Gronkh Erik Range, also called Gronkh, is a German YouTube personality, computer games developer, computer and video game journalist, musician and entrepreneur best known for creating and publishing the YouTube playthrough video game series Let's Play.

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.

Share the love of #lafamilia.. being one of the first youtubers I have ever watched, and still do, he has helped me through some tough times. Thank you, Danke Erik ^-^

36 Jacksepticeye Jacksepticeye Seán William McLoughlin, better known by his online pseudonym Jacksepticeye, is an Irish YouTube personality, known primarily for his comedic Let's Play series and vlogs.

Jack is one of the funniest people on YouTube. His mouth runs as fast as his brain, so he ends up sounding loud and outgoing. Some people might find some of his humor somewhat offensive, though, as he doesn't censor his thoughts. In his own words, "There's a fine line between funny and offensive... And I ride that line every day of my life."
Honestly, if you haven't seen him yet, go check out his Reading Your Comments videos for an idea of his humor before you dive in to his let's plays.

Jack is boss. I love his videos and his sense of humor. Truly my favorite Let's Player on YouTube.

He'll always be my favourite let's player. He deserves to be higher on this list, he's an inspiration to us all. - asterflower

37 ShadowMarioXLI

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

38 Shendijiro

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.

I recommend her. Her videos are always fun to watch!

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!

She is the best lets player I kno. ALSO I JEARD you R GETTING ENGAGED WITH KRISM! CONGRATS!

42 batman9502

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.

43 The Super Gaming Bros

Johnny, Elliot, and Matt are all just amazing. They play lots of old school and some modern games. They've also had a lot of funny moments, from when Elliot died in the same pit three times in World 1-1 in Super Mario Bros, to Matt drowning in Angel Island Zone in Sonic 3 & Knuckles, to Elliot's entire let's play of Crash Bandicoot: Warped. Plus they have an extensive knowledge of video games in general.

These guys are hidden gems the best ever lets players

44 BikdipOnABus

What makes Bikdip such a solid let's player is...hard to pinpoint. Very captivating, with a very deadpan style of humor. His videos are not for everyone, but they're definitely a real treat if they're suited for you. - somelifeonaplanet

One of the most underrated youtubers. Bikdip is much different from most let's players, sporting a dry humour and a stoic voice. He is much better than I described, though.

45 Theradbrad

He's good at games, doesn't swear too much, entertaining, should be top of the list

He's amazing! Always makes me laugh! He should of been first in my opinion

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 lit!

These you tubers are the best! I wish I could at least get gaming with them one day! Wiiriketopray has the funniest Mario Party 10 videos! Way better than anyone that has posted a YouTube video! Get gaming boys because I am thirsty for more of your videos. I hop your next videos are about Splatoon! Just remember, I'm your biggest fan! Don't listen to this list because you are number one on my watch! This comment was posted by Brandon! I live in Mount Vernon NY and I hope I can meet you some day! I even want to get gaming with you because I really wanted Mario party 4 and I am willing to see, ore of your best videos!

Great and cool lets players. Spencer, Chris, Tyler and Tyson... They will keep you intrigued!

Love new super Mario bros wii

My only gripe with them is that they often leave letsplays unfinished.

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.

Best boi! :D
