Didn't see a sticky for game recomendations... What is a good game to do a let's play of? I tend to gravitate towards shooters, but I DONT want to do an FPS because YouTube is so saturated with them. I was thinking I would do a more tactical game, but I obviously want it to be forgiving enough so I won't be repeating checkpoints over and over (that gets boring fast). Also, please keep in mind that I don't have the best PC (ATi Radeon 3450) and will be running fraps.

Perhaps do an RTS game, such as Starcraft 2, Dawn of War II. Or maybe look into Dragon Age, Knights of the old Republic?

Rpgs are most entertaining LP's imo Fallout , tes series etc. just avoid linear games those are extremely boring to watch even if you havent played the game ...

I'm totally wanting to buy a new game. The games I have on PC are not good for let's plays (TF2, Halo CE, and I'm not making one for minecraft). I was thinking about Freedom Fighters or Arma 1. (can you get rid of that aiming dead zone in Arma 1? It's like a Wii FPS or something!) KotOR is a great idea too. Also, what do y'all think of trying RE4 or something like that?

You may look to abandonware games. Those can be fun. HardWar, Descent (Which can lead to lulzy meltdowns from the LPer

Too many Let's Plays for my liking. Do a humorous one of either Deus Ex, Half-Life 2 or System Shock 2.

That is a good idea, maybe do a run on an rpg where you try and get through the game with minimal shooting. I.e. see if you can actually do any of these games by not killing the AI or not following the mission progression tree and see what the game does.

What is System Shock? I see the review but it doesn't jog my brain.

What's a blind LP? Just a guess, an LP done by somebody who never played the game? Oh, that's gotta be good...

I don't believe anyone has done a let's play in English for Heroes of Might and Magic 4 or 5, also UFO Afterlight. I would like to see any of those games in a let's play.

I've been turning into a Star Wars nut lately, especially with The Old Republic coming. Been playing Knights of the Old Republic 1 and 2 because of it. I would suggest those.

The best "lets play" I have ever seen is "Coe's Quest" for minecraft.

Lego games always make great ones. Also remember you need a good commantry of preferably two or more people to make it good.

Agreed. Blind LPs are the only ones I will watch.
