slowbeef - arguably the father of lets play - he didn’t invent the concept but he definitely coined the term. mainly streams nowadays, including “wifestreams”, in which his very vg unaware wife gets to grips with a variety of games in the most endearing manner possible
diabetus - slowbeef’s partner in crime but a very competent lper himself. broke in with an lp of battletoads (a notoriously difficult game), but does a whole range of games
voidburger - big silent hill fan - she’s done very comprehensive lps of the more notable games in the series. also streams a lot too
chipcheezum and general ironicus - chip is voidburger’s bf, and has been doing lps with his pal ironicus for about the same length of time. tend to do action games like uncharted and the wonderful 101
narcissa wright - speedrunner and smash player. she’s taking a break from that kind of thing at the moment but has been talking about getting back into speedrunning once breath of the wild comes out, so keep an eye on her
sheshellssheshells - common collaborater with voidburger. also goes by Kamoc and tortoiseontour. tends to stream goofy horror games but has a fun little series called “everything wrong with everything wrong with…” in which he nitpicks the nitpickers of youtube
boilingheart - mostly does overwatch stuff. has a series of cute videos in which she attempts to make friends with the enemy team during matches
additionally, the following people aren’t exactly lpers but they discuss games critically in interesting ways
hbomberguy - mainly does videos in which he criticizes the alt-right and its associated groups, but also does a number of videos talking about various media, including some really interesting long form video essays about why fallout 3 is shit and bloodborne is really good. also a very funny guy
mark brown - short video essays about game design. currently doing a series about the dungeon design of legend of zelda which is very interesting in its own right
hamish black - kind of like mark but more scottish. does some longform in depth analysis of games as well
push to smart - has some really interesting videos about women in games and stuff like the bechdel test. unfortunately seems to have stopped making videos but there’s still some good stuff in there
i should note that these people aren’t perfect in any way (who is) and especially some of their earlier stuff has some off colour jokes, but they’re people who have shown that they are open to criticism and are willing to change and be better people rather than do something like, i dunno, make a number of heavily anti-semitic videos, then double down and claim innocent victimhood when it blows up in their face
(I didn’t post a video last week! Sorry!!!) But I’m sharing with you some Spanish speaking youtubers, so you can start practicing your listening skills! :D
I chose these youtubers because, aside from being entertaining, they don’t say a lot of bad words and swearwords as other youtubers, which I personally don’t find attractive or funny; and I don’t think it works for your Spanish learning. Of course you’ll hear a lot of swearwords in Spanish speaking countries, and most of these youtubers use them, but in my opinion, in a more moderate way (and also because if they swear a lot they don’t get money).
HolaSoyGerman.[Chile; +31,700,000 subscribers] With just 137 videos, he’s the most watched Spanish speaking youtuber. He’s funny and his videos are very simple, and he’s very charismatic. Now he’s not very active in this channel, but he has another one where he plays videogames, here it is: JuegaGerman Warning! He speaks really fast, even for native Spanish speakers. So, don’t get discouraged if you don’t understand at first, you will eventually (I believe in you!)
elrubiusOMG [España; +24,400,000 subscribers] He’s the most popular gamer in the Spanish speaking community. His channel is basically about gameplays, but he also makes some other videos where he trolls people, plays pranks, or travels.
Yuya[México; +18,300,000 subscribers] She’s the most popular youtuber from México. She makes DIY’s, make up tutorials, dessert recipes and so on. She has a very peculiar voice, and a very cute way of speaking.
enchufetv[Ecuador; +14,100,000 subscribers] This is a group of people that make short videos. They’re very creative and funny. They make parodies about real life and modern times situations.
Luisito Comunica[México; +5,800,000 subscribers] He’s always traveling, trying new things and asking people for their opinion on several topics. His videos are very interesting and entertaining.
YellowMellowMG[España; +1,500,000 subscribers] She’s very outgoing, interesting and funny. Her channel is mostly about personal opinions and experiences.
Gonzok[México; +630,000 subscribers] He’s a less popular youtuber, but in my opinion he makes really good videos, very well edited and he’s very funny. He makes the typical “Kinds of people” videos. He says that the key to be happy in life is to subscribe to his channel, maybe you can try it! :)
superholly[USA; +450,000 subscribers] She’s from the United States but has lived in México for a long time. She’s fluent in Spanish, she could be Mexican, I thought she was Mexican. She makes each one of her videos in English and Spanish, so maybe you can first watch her video in Spanish and then watch the video in English and see how much you understood.
CuriosaMente[México; +380,000 subscribers] These are educational animated videos that talk about science, history and culture. These videos are interesting and the narrator speaks very clear.
Inna Moll[Chile; +320,000 subscribers] Within her first month uploading videos in Youtube she reached 100,000 subscribers! it seems that everybody is loving her. She’s a model from Chile, and her channel is basically about her trips and personal life.

Please, we want the memey s/o, we're begging you, this is what we really want

It’s honestly a mystery how the two of you met in the first place. 2D doesn’t get your humor at all, and wonders why the fuck you always send him strange pictures and videos instead of actual words.
Most of your conversations look something like this:
SOME pictures and videos he finds funny, but it’s very rare that he actually laughs at the weird shit you send him.
He tries to make you laugh too, but the memes that he sends are so fucking crusty, you have a stroke every time he sends them.
The only person that gets your humor is Noodle and the two of you bond together whenever she tags along to some of your outings with 2D.
Sometimes you scare him with some of the bass boosted videos you send him, especially if you’re texting him at night and he opens one. It takes like 10 years off his life and he usually flings his phone onto the floor, cracking the screen.
He catches you bopping to some songs on your headphones and he’s curious as to what you’re listening to. When you place the headphones on his ears, he stares at you in amazement and confusion as he asks you how you could listen to something like this:
He doesn’t question it.
He doesn’t question anything.
You scare the shit out of Murdoc especially, waking him up in the morning with the entire discography of J Cole, which sends him into a coma because it’s that bad. sorry j cole fans if you exist
2D eventually gets tired of your bullshit one day and just dumps you straight up, except he sends this meme:
You thought he finally was understanding your humor at first but he never responds after sending that.
You go to visit him, but you’re detained by the police upon arriving to his house.
