Top Ten Best Let's Players

The Top Ten
1 Chuggaaconroy Emiliano "Emile" Rodolfo Rosales-Birou, also known as Emile Rosales and best known as Chuggaaconroy, is an American internet personality and prominent Let's Player.

Came here solely to make sure that Chuggaa was number one, and I'm not surprised that he is. He's the perfect blend of "Let's Player" and informative walkthroughs. He's hilarious, his editing skills are amazing, he's family friendly, and just an overall pleasant person to listen to. I think the one thing of his that stands out from every other Let's Player though is his passion, and how much work he puts into every single thing that he does. He spends months, sometimes more than 12 even, dedicating time to researching games before he plays them. He's always so into the game he's playing and it's definitely amazing to watch. Truly one of the most unique people out there. I could never say enough good about him.

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 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.

Chugga is the best YouTuber ever. His lets plays nudged me to buy some games I love to this day (like Pikmin 2 and Kid Icarus Uprising), and also got me back into some games I hadn't played much (like Kirby's Epic Yarn and Sonic Colors). Also, he makes puns. I love making puns, and I laugh when he makes them. Also, he has an epic no. Who in this wide open Yoshi Wooly World could hate an epic no?! And he is family friendly (in his later videos at least). Also, he is the person who inspired me to make my own YouTube channel (which has no videos at the moment). So basically, I owe him my life pretty much.

2 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.

He is a wonderful person and his hearts in the right place. He is sometimes clueless in some games but he makes it hilarious anyway. Mark is good at his LPs because he can adapt to many personalities to make his videos entertaining (e. G Warfstache, Darkiplier, etc. ) And I also know that people also hate him but that's just because so many people love him already and little do they know that they contribute to his fame. If Markiplier ever sees this, keep on being a humble and lovely person Mark! You're on the right track!

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!

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!

He's just such a great guy! He always cheers me up, and really can relate with the viewer. He also really is involved in his community, with his Omegle meet-ups, charity livestreams, and merchandise (typically also made for charity.) His LPs in and of themselves are really great too. He's hilarious, and never fails to put a smile on my face. Even his horror LPs are more funny than scary, something that really helped me with my anxiety, for some reason...Anyways, 10/10 great LPs and 400/10 great guy.

3 NintendoCapriSun

Truly, the best Let's Player on YouTube. He is funny with all his jokes and in-game commentary. He has various memorable quotes such as "So Happy" and "Get Some More Toilet Paper" and my personal favorite " In the Bathroom". And many people have said that watching his videos have changed their lives. I know that it did for me. Just overall, Excellent person and awesome commentating skills.

NCS was the first Lets' player I seriously started watching and I have to say that he truly is special. He is one of the few that I feel make it fun to watch with hilarious commentary that make you laugh at even some serious moments. He changes people lives and has some super amazing life stories to share. He is an all around great guy and makes amazing videos of amazing games.

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.

4 Lucahjin

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.

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!

5 MasaeAnela

Masae may be best friends with Chuggaa, but that's not why she's quickly becoming the most popular female Let's Player. She has her own personality, and one she's not afraid to embrace. Masae has come a long way since her low-quality, camcorder LP's of Ocarina of Tme and Majora's Mask. She has shown that it doesn't matter who you are, if you have passion for what you do you can make it anywhere. She's an unstoppable force of positivity.

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!

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!

6 ZeldaMaster2010

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

7 ProtonJonSA

ProtonJon is the best let's player in terms of hilarity and information! I especially enjoy his commentating with another person, but by himself he is very funny too! He has this "lemony narrator" aspect between him and he is my favorite RunawayGuy as well!

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!

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.

8 Shofu
9 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's awesome, quirky and so funny! I love his videos so much, especially his top tens. Him, attackingtucans and purplerodri are the best.

PeanutButterGamer isn't a Let's Player. You're thinking of PBGGameplay. But regardless, he's a fun guy to watch.

He is hilarious and I haven't watched one of his videos without laughing

10 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.

One of the few LPers out there that actually know their stuff and have great chemsitry, always catch myself calling things hype. Just brilliant.

The Contenders
11 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.

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!

12 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 think that Game Grumps has recently started to truly hit their stride. While Steam Train probably should feature someone instead of Danny as the main member, both Game Grumps and Steam Train do a beautiful job of playing the game for fun. Where they might not be the most informative or...y'know...good at said game, they make up for it with great stories and immature jokes. Grumps comes off as a casual group of friends playing video games and actually having real fun instead of forced fun.

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.

13 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.

The Creatures as a whole, but Nova on particular, are some of the best current YouTubers around.


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.

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

She really is the best out there I love her she is truly amazing

16 Necroscope86

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

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.

17 SlimKirby

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...

He should be higher than 18th.

18 SuperJeenius

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

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.

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.

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

19 PewDiePie Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg (born October 24, 1989), better known by his online alias PewDiePie, is a Swedish web-based comedian video producer, and commentary channel. He is best known for his Let's Play commentaries and Vlogs on YouTube. He is known for being the most subscribed-to YouTuber on the website, more.

A Swedish let's player who does mostly horror games. He is known for his frequent exaggerated screaming over the games that he plays. He uses profanities as part of his features. His channel grew from his Amnesia: The Dark Descent playthrough videos.

Well this dude is the guy to watch if your feeling sad or lonely. He has incredibly funny outbursts that make you feel like your right next to him.
He is a very good youtuber who deserves to be 1st because of all he's been through to get this far. (With 8,000,000 subscribers too! ) Brofist!

Really funny and just a really nice dude! It's hilarious to watch him suffer terror through horror games and always tries to make his viewers happy! He is my first LPer and my favorite by far! He's stupidly funny and plays the best games to boot!

His reactions to horror games are the best and I absolutely love it when he teams up with Cry (chaoticmonki) I am a proud member of the bro army bee size of his hilarious and chill commentary. Go bros!

20 StephanPlays

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.

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 very small currently with only 25000 ish subscribers. Yet he is THE BEST. He never cuses, he likes to say Piss a lot instead. He works with chugga at times, and in my opinion is WAY BETTER THAN HIM. Stephen did a hilarious an amazing 100 episode minecraft LP and is doing a really long skyrim LP. He keeps a very solid schedule and usually cycles in a loop 3 different games, now 4. He almost always posts by noon. Every Monday and Thursday he posts memorable moments of his lps. So defiantly go check him out, it is way worth it.

Provides a wide variety of great content and works hard to release videos

21 Thekwings
22 Achievement Hunter

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.

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 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.

23 Kikoskia
24 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!

25 Cobanermani456

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!
