Let's Play

A Let's Play (commonly referred to as an LP) is a style of video (or a screenshot accompanied by text) series documenting the playthrough of a video game, usually including commentary by the gamer. A Let's Play differs from a video game walkthrough or strategy guide by focusing on an individual's subjective experience with the game, often with humorous, irreverent, or critical commentary from the gamer, rather than being an objective source of information on how to progress through the game. While Let's Plays and live streaming of game playthroughs are related, Let's Plays tend to be curated experiences that include editing and scripted narration, while streaming is an unedited experience performed on the fly.

The YouTuber in this video really does a good job of parodying a lot of what most Let's Players do these days. It also pays tribute to the mockumentary episode of "Spongebob Squarepants", which is always appreciated.

Great guys plays video games. I like this because I can't afford to buy and play all of the games I would like too, but this gives a chance to still experience the game. Stephen gives great content and commentary, and even gives other perspectives on games by playing different games, and even does games that he and his wife play together!
