Favorite Streamers


#1

I’m looking for some streamers to watch, but outside of journalists I recognize, I don’t really know where to turn. Can anyone recommend their favorite streamers so I could get a good handle on who to watch?

Thanks!

Old LP recommendation thread has a lot.

Since that thread, this collective has started up so recommended to give it a look over for some channels to try:

They don’t stream that much anymore, but the Idle Thumbs guys have a channel and it’s very good (If you aren’t familiar with them Idle Thumbs is an excellent gaming podcast Danielle was on back in the day (Danielle and Rob now have a sort of spin off podcast called Idle Weekend which is also very good)).

They have a series where they drink and attempt a blind run of Dark Souls. It’s probably my favorite thing on Twitch, it’s all archived on Youtube now:

Chris has recently been doing Heat Signature

I’ll have to check that out. It’s always fun when they play games that lend themselves to emergent disasters.

I haven’t watched anything from Men Drinkin’ Coffee but I’m a big fan of supergreatfriend. And not just his livestreams, his produced/edited stuff is also always top notch. He goes the extra mile to show off all the extra/side/hidden stuff.

yeah, he’s more of an archivist LPer than a “streamer” persay, but he’s still got my all-time favourite youtube channel where someone talks while playing games. he’s done the definitive playthroughs of a bunch of titles: Illbleed, Deadly Premonition, all of Kenji Eno’s work.


#12

I’ll second Northernlion! Haven’t watched him recently, but his Binding of Isaac videos were a favorite for a long time. Very chill streamer/LPer with plenty of references to mid-90s Canadian rock groups, truly a streamer after my own heart.

the only streamers i bother with are the retropals. they’re very funny and play plenty of strange games, often kusoge, that i’ve never seen anywhere else. i basically show up for anything they do since i enjoy the banter and their community.


#14

I watch Retropals’ stream archives quite a bit. Been getting in to them more over time, actually. Which is my problem with streams: I never really bother to show up when people go live.

The only person I make time for is my friend Chess. Here’s her stream archives. She just generally seems to play games that I like, the community around her is very friendly, and I like her commentary. I always try to show up to any stream she does.

Watching Dan from Extra Credits playing through Dark Souls is the first LP/game streaming I’d watched, and it’s what piqued my interest in the series in the first place. Now they’re some of my favorite games.

I still don’t watch a whole lot of streaming though. Just a few here and there when I’m not busy. I think some of the most entertaining people are the ones who aren’t necessarily good at the games, but retain a persistent positive attitude.

I’ll also add a little shout out to AGDQ, since nobody’s mentioned them yet.

I like Jerma985, I think he streams quite regularly and you can find a load of archived stuff on YoiTube. My fave is definite the series where he messed with New Vegas.
