A "Let's Play" is a narrated walk-through of a game. A master of the genre is Super Great Friend, and as he wraps up his rendition of the cult classic Deadly Premonition, he has announced a new website that collects his work in a single location
What sets SGF apart from other let's play narrators? He plays each game as closely to 100% as he can, often providing the viewer with backstory and insight, and doing so with a pleasant voice, and a dry wit. He let's the game speak for itself while still providing his own unique spin on the experience. SGF's wheelhouse is survival horror, and to date he has LPed the following games
Wikipedia links follow, with minor to major spoilers in each. I'd recommend reading the summaries only if you want to view the videos without spoilers.
SGF operates mainly out of the Let's Play forum on SomethingAwful
. If you'd like some more information about Let's Plays, or want to check out the work of some other narrators, you can do so at the LP archive
Deadly Premonition was discussed previously here
, and despite its flaws it comes highly recommended.
