Around 2001 or 2002 I was a child living in Ecuador and would spend the vast majority of my time watching cartoons like Digimon & The Powerpuff Girls but I remember very distinctly that one night I stayed up later than normal & was surfing the local channels & saw these two men, maybe in their 20s, sitting on a couch in what looked like a studio closet playing Star Fox Adventures. I don’t remember what channel and I honestly don’t think anything else was broadcast on it but these guys would go on every couple of nights & play through the game until they finished. I don’t remember any other games they played but looking back at that memory I realize now that this may have been the first example of what we know as modern Let’s Plays.
My question to you is, does ANYONE know who these people may have been?
And does anyone have any other similar stories of people who broadcast themselves playing games before it became part of pop culture?
