It's the Thought That Counts... Again? by ThatOneNPC It's the Thought That Counts... Again? by ThatOneNPC
And this is why we shouldn't let Emile buy gifts.

From episode five of LittleBigPlanet, the video opens up with the Runaway Guys and girl receiving gifts from our favorite polo-clad Let's Player, resulting in some mixed reviews on their presents: Tim got a plush Yoshi as he does with every TRG meet up in a fabulous pink, Lucah got My Balls, well, a Barbie horse at the very least, and Jon, of course, get a very special T-shirt.

As you may be able to tell, disaster has struck. My beloved Bamboo Create tablet has mysteriously ceased to work whatsoever! :nuu: So, since I'll probably be without one for the next few weeks, it leaves me no other option but to go back to the basics with a pen and paper, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It feels pretty good to work with a pencil again, but I forgot how painstakingly slow the process is! :saddummy: Welp. What can you do?

Question of the Week: Since I can't think of an interesting one pertaining to the picture, I'll give you a more personal one instead. How did you get into watching Let's Plays and who was the first LPer you watched and why?

Happy Sunday, everybody!

Even though Super Skarmory is actually the first LPer that I have watched, it was actually Chuggaa who made me watch non stop. The first LP I have watched from him is his Paper Mario: TTYD LP and I have been following him since, until I came across the RunawayGuys.

First LPer I watched was Chuggaaconroy, he made me check out video games like Pokémon, Legend of Zelda, and the Mother series. Thank you Chuggaa, you made this girl who she is now!

(Eh I'm late by probably a few years so I hope nobody minds)

Well to be honest I used to hate commentary in a video game. I just found it stupid. After playing a good marathon worth of super smash brothers brawl and I was very interested in the character of Ness and Lucas. So I searched up on YouTube for a walk through of Earthbound. The first result that came up was Chuggaaconroy's first 
let's play of Earthbound. I tried to ignore it and look up some other videos. After a giving up I eventually watched the first episode. Surprisingly, he was pretty funny and I seriously haven't laughed so hard in years. I actually called my sister to come and watch this let's play. It became a daily routine for the two of us to grab some popcorn and other junk food as we watch Chuggaaconroy's let's plays (all the way up to Okami, then we started watching his other videos separately now). I guess after that, I did enjoy let's plays after all.

Yup, this is late, but well, is the thought that counts, right?
My older sister was laughing so hard at something on the computer, and I wanted to see, so I went over and asked what was so funny. She then proceeded to show me chuggaaconroy, and then, I got obsessed. Thanks, Maya! I already clearly stated that Emile was my first Let's Player.

I know I'm a bit late with this comment, but I'm going to answer the question anyways.

 

So here's how I got into LPers and video game related channels on Youtube in general. One day I was just browsing around and came across PeanutButterGamer. Watched some of his videos and decided to subscribe. It was around the time he posted his MySims Agents video, so I would say this was a little over a year ago. So then I found out about JonTron and ContinueShow. Time had passed and I found out about Pewdiepie. I started watching his Happy Wheels videos and a little after that my friend got me to watch more of his videos. I subscribed a little bit before he started his Bully Let's Play, so I would say that was about October or November of 2012. Through Pewdie I found out about Cry and TobyGames. Some time after that JonTron announced the GameGrumps channel and stuff, but it would be a little while after that 'til I actually watched their stuff though. So then not too long ago, I came across a video with all of Chuggaaconroy's legendary pokemon freakouts. So I checked out what he had played and saw that he had played Pokemon Colosseum. I decided to watch that playthrough first because I remembered that I liked the game when I was younger, so I was interested, and also surprised that someone had actually done a let's play of it. So through his channel, I found out about TheRunawayGuys. After watching them play Mario Party, I went to check out ProtonJon and NintendoCapriSun's channels. So I watched Jon play Don't Eat the Mushroom, a couple episodes of Superman 64, and some Mario ROM hacks, along with both of the Mario Early Years videos. And I am currently watching NCS play Conker's Bad Fur Day ( ya know, IN THE BATHROOM ). So yeah, this comment was probably much longer than it needed to be, but here's the whole backstory and everything. Sorry about this being such a long, drawn out comment though...

I needed help with something in Okami, I googled, I watched Chuggaa's race with Kai. I did my game. Then I got curious cuz he had so much energy so I went back and watched the whole thing. I still watch (and re-watch) his LPs because his energy makes it so fun. I really only watch Chuggaa and TRG still...

Chuggaaconroy is the main reason why I'm addicted to LPs and then The Runaway Guys. I must admit, I watch them more for the commentary than for the actual gameplay XDDD
My very first video that I watched from Chugga was Super Mario Sunshine then I got into Jon because of the ROM hacks and lastly Time due to Zelda. And I'm glad that I got to know them. I just hope that I can meet them in person one day <3 <3 <3 I would cry from happiness if that happens <3

My first LPer: NintendoCapriSun and the first LP I ever watch was his Banjo-Kazooie LP. My favorites are his Majora's Mask, Sunshine, Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie (though I watch the latter more), and the race he did with ProtonJonSA, SuperJeenius, and Pcull44444 (if that counts). I also like his contributions to The Runaway Guys.

....OK, that does it. I've seen quite a bit of your work now, and I've gotta WATCH you. This is one of my favorite works I've seen so far (mostly because of Jon's reaction to the shirt, which I can totally see him saying). As for the question on this one:

ProtonJonSA was actually my first LP'er, and he (along with Chugga and NCS) got me into watching LP's (and Chugga inspired me to start trying to make my own eventually here, if I can find some good [cheap/free] equipment for it...). Short version of the story - I was watching Furious Mario videos one day a long time ago. One of the related videos was ProtonJon's Kaizo Special Stage 2. I watched more of ProtonJon's ROM-Hack stuff from there, but when I ran out of videos to watch (because of upload schedule hiatus nonsense), I got bored. I then decided that, because I really liked ProtonJon and wanted to see more of him, I would just watch some RunawayGuys videos and only focus on Jon. I failed at that task, because Emile and Tim were both amazing as well. Thus, I found all of the LP community.

I got into watching Let's Plays because I'm a cheater. For my birthday, I got a Wii points card and got SMRPG: Legend of The Seven Stars (or something like that). And because I was a cheater, I went on YouTube and searched for a walkthrough for it, and Emile's was the first one. ^_^ That was wayyyyy back in like, 2008.

Boy, I don't even think there was a single video in that LP of his that wasn't inappropriate xD I didn't find any of TheRunawayGuys until I was looking for a LP of Majora's Mask and found Chuggaa's. Finally, I found their SSBB LP.

I was at a very young age when I started watching LP's. I was watching Mario X Peach fan art stuf, when out of no where, there is an ep. of Super Mario Sunshine! I loved that game, and started watching.
And after watching many of the LP's he did, I stuck with them. Then I noticed I was a nerd for watching them and stopped.
Six years later, here I am, on YouTube watching Chuggaaconroy again.
He was my first LPer to ever watch. And I don't regret it. :)

First LPer I watched: Odd story here. A few years ago I watched alchemistiD and thesuperduelist's LPs of Megaman Legends and alchemistiD's Legends 2... then stopped until earlier this year when some friends in a small Nintendo fan group I'm a part of on Failbook [Facebook] were discussing Chugga's Latias e-reader video. I didn't believe that someone would put $140 into one video, so I watched. His dedication amazed me and I instantly respected him. From there I found the R3 among others and I've decided to take a crack at LPing myself. My apologies for the paragraph when others simply post a sentence.

Also, I love the way you draw Lucah; she's very cute. =3

GhostRobo was the first LPer I watched because he just was. Nobody ever told me about him, I fonud him when I looked up Dead Space 2 and it so happens that Dead Space 2 was his 3rd let's play and he was doing it at the time, so I decided to watch and I liked :D I got into watching let's plays because it was fun to watch someone play a game instead of myself (and to watch them fail) and I liked how certain let's players are with the community that are watching them.

I first got into watching Let's Plays when I was just randomly searching for a walkthrough of Wind Waker, my favorite video game of all time, since my copy of the game broke and I only had a vague recollection of what happened in the game, so then I found our oh-so-punny(Had to, I'm sorry, but with the way he is... Can you expect anything less from his fans? XD) Emile. He was the very first Let's Player I watched, and his Wind Waker Let's Play is what I watched fully and enjoyed alot. Then I found out he was doing an Okami Let's Play back then, and I started watching his videos every day. I stopped at his Okamiden Let's Play, although I do have the game, but I still watch him in the TRG videos. He's pretty hilarious as always, and I wonder what hilarity I missed during his Okamiden Let's Play. Can't wait for LP 20, though!~

I definitely liked the first part, I have a thing for cute drawings. But I feel like stuff is missing from the second part but it's still a good pic. Maybe the spacing is a bit too even between them and the plastic bag hasn't been thrown off somewhere in the background.

I was clicking around on tv tropes and stumbled across ProtonJon (somehow from Stephen Fry...). I wasn't going to watch anything but a few days later, I had nothing to do and then I found myself really enjoying his videos. Out of curiosity I clicked onto my first RunawayGuys video (one of the last NSMB Wii episodes) and of all things to be greeting with, it was Tim burping. Let's say it took me awhile to sum up the courage and go back to TheRunawayGuys but since then, I've had a good laugh out of them!

Wow. That is a very good question actually. I actually had no idea what was the first LPer I watched or how I got into Emile in the first place. But what I do know is this: I did not find him through EarthBound (thank Giygas for that) or Paper Mario (used a text walkthrough) and I was already subscribed to him when the whole suspension fiasco happened. I remember though that I found Jon through the "Move Faster Pokey" scene (no thanks to Emile) and I never even heard of NCS until TheRunawayGuys (so sue me).
