Do you watch lets plays over actual games?

Recommended Posts

Do you guys ever watch lets plays for actual games you want to play? Or games you think you never will play? I've done my fair share of this myself. I usually watch horror games played out, as I'm never any good with them, and it brings me anxiety to play them lol. 

I find lets plays to be fine to watch. Sometimes I'll watch them with commentary, mainly because I like the person streaming. But other times I just want to see and hear the story play out. Some games I can't play, and some I just don't want to because the controls weird me out, or it's a game I know I'd suck at. 

Do you guys do this? If so, what games did you watch instead of play?

Lets play = gameplays? If so then yes, the reason being a lot of physics based games and the puzzle games are harder to solve on our own. And we have to check out for the gameplays in that case. 

Yeah pretty much. Though they will also show the story in full, so all cut-scenes will be played. I like to watch a mix of commentary and no commentary. I only watch games I plan to never play, or wish to play and can't. And I'll sometimes watch them to help me through certain levels.

I never watch let's plays of games I haven't played.  You don't get the full experience by watching a let's play and if it's a story driven game then it's going to be spoiled for you.  Gameplay > let's plays every time.

Yes I also do watch game play when I buy new games and I stuck in games. When I bought Fifa first, I have to watch it before I understand how can I control the games and how I can build of skills. It's quite fun to watch it before you play the real game.

I only watch gameplays with no commentaries, when I want to get a new game.

But youtube does not allow that considering it leads to duplicate content. so they prefer having the commentary.
