Oh COME ON! Who DOESN'T love watching a good (really bad) Let's Play? Why watch a boring walk through when you get to see what you need to do EVERYTHING you don't need to do in a Let's Play? Tell me I'm not alone here
Walkthroughs are cheating for me, unless I've reached my utter limit and just need a little hint -- or if I'm replaying a game, then I don't care. Tobuscus's play throughs are funny. Otherwise, I don't watch any. I don't have much time, anyway!
Try a Blind Let's Play,meaning you have not played the game before,never glimpsed through it(or if so,have forgotten),and not use online walkthroughs or use spoilers from the comments. :3 They're really fun,but frustrating at times(I tried Majora's Mask Blind last year,and I didn't understand what was going on in the beginning and had to use a walkthrough because I ragequitted xD
It depends. I watch Let's Plays for entertainment purposes mostly, just for fun. It's funny listening to their commentary. If there's a part of a game that I can't figure out and need help with, I turn to walkthroughs, since they're usually more thorough and tell how to do things better.
