Yo wzup. I think this idea was brought up before, but I figured I'd do it again.
LET'S PLAY: OB STYLE (that sounds so naughty.)
So, time to post videos of us people playing videogames and sucking or owning or whatever, with your own voice commentary to it. Or just post videos of other people, that you thought were funny. To kick stuff off, here's my and Lyndy sucking atOWNING Portal 2:
Here's the first part of a 96 gate run of Super Mario World that I played while various theO/OB people commentated over Skype. You can find the rest of it and other archived streams on my Twitch TV channel.
I don't have any videos of my own to post, but I hope to remedy that one of these days...
I've actually been watching more LPs lately, mainly of Chuggaaconroy's Majora's Mask LP and The Runaway Guys's Brawl LP that was just started last week. I'm also rather fond of ProtonJon's output, and I'm a loyal fan of The Speed Gamers [although I wouldn't call it let's playing, they're playing games with commentary, so it...sort of counts, in a way].
On the snarkier side, I also love Retsupurae, usually from Diabetus/Slowbeef, but I've also been watching more and more of ChipCheezum/General Ironicus's stuff as well. For those that don't know, they snark on bad LPs, whether it's because of the commentary, production values [camcorder LPs are perennial favorite], or a combination of that and goodness knows what else. They also sometimes snark on bad Newgrounds flashes, video-game related videos, and other oddities.
The former's recently started doing "Longplays", in which they commentate on less-than-stellar games as others play them. One example is this, which is part one of their first Longplay that they did [warning, they tend to use a lot of salty language]:
I'd link to more but there's way too many that I like. But they're a hoot.
Been having some fun times doing a bit of streaming of my own! My Twitch.tv account is right here. I've been streaming Friday evenings around 11 p.m. pacific time. Just a few minutes ago I finished Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, and next week I'll be starting a secret fun game that I've never played before! Hooray!
This could be quite the fun thread, especially if fighting games are allowed (They're not Let's Plays, but they do provide commentary). Unfortunately, I don't have any of myself playing (I don't even have the equipment for all that jazz, but I do have quite a set of videos to share of high level play along with great comedy of people playing Marvel vs Capcom 3, Super Street Fighter 4, and Street Fighter x Tekken.
Actual video starts around 1:17 mark since they advertise madcatz stuff in this stuff as well.
