RT Docs: Let's Play Live: The Documentary

Let's Play Live: The Documentary follows Achievement Hunter as it turns online gaming into a first-of-its-kind live event. The documentary not only explores why Let's Plays are so popular, but also how the convergence of gaming and community are redefining the stages once reserved for only the biggest of rock stars.

    I'm really hoping that perhaps one day the event will come to the UK. Ofcourse that would mean alot more hassle with travel. But again it would amazing to see all of them play together!

    I have never been to a concert or any major event like that, other than a circus once. And I've never really wanted to before either. But after watching this documentary I really want to go to a Lets Play Live. I just hope they are still having the Live shows once I have enough saved to go to one.

    Gosh, that moment between Geoff and Jack almost brought tears to my eyes. It's so rare that we actually see them get serious with each other - especially Geoff.

    When ever I watch things where the people seem nervous, I get nervous. I have that tingling sensation in my gut right now, and it's just making the video more intense. Also, that moment between Jack and Geoff was so sweet. We rarely get to see the guys get serious with each other.

    I love this documentary so much. I always get asked why I enjoy watching a bunch of dudes play video games instead of playing them myself. I could give two flying fucks about the game, I watch it for the people. I have been a huge RT and AH fan for a while and I can throughly say as cheesy as it sounds I feel like there family. Being in on inside jokes with them, learning new things about them and myself, but most importantly feeling like I always have someone to go to. They might not be able to talk to us directly but yet they still do. I cried when I saw Jack and Geoff hug it out cause I know how much that ment to them and how hard they worked, I was nervous and scared for them before the show, when the mics didnt turn on at first my heart sank, and I have seen this before and still felt all those feelings. This is not just a group of buddies or coworkers, this is a goddamn family. Jack is responsible and passionate, Geoff is tough skinned yet soft, Micheal is rage filled yet bubbly, Gavin is the smartest idiot, Ryan is crazy in the best way, and Ray is a cluster fuck of everything. These men with all these different personalities, views, environments, and pasts all manage to come together to form the greatest dysfunctional family in the history books. Because no matter what happens they have each others backs and they would do anything to help another, they have achieved the perfect line between whats comedy and real life. That family bond they have is what brings me to tears. The fact that no matter what they do they will be there for each other when needed most. That my friends is why AH is different. You can watch 30 concerts in a row but this is never anything close to that because here you feel and see a family bond and you get to feel like your somehow apart of it. I never would have thought I would be this proud of a group of men but I fucking am and I am not ashamed.

    As a stagehand, this is really fucking cool. I would have loved to have been a part of this. I've worked on some of the most technologically advanced shows on the road right now, but this still is a marvel to behold. Someday I hope I get to do something like this or work with y'all. This is amazing.

    if it wasn't for how successful the first Let's Play Live was, there wouldn't have been a second or third one. i am happy to say that I went to Let's Play Live at the Dolby Theater and I have to say it is one of the greatest times I've had in a live event! I can't wait for their next event that they have in L.A because I will definitely go to it!

    Wow, this put a smile on my face. Makes me wish I could have gone to the one this year.

    Also, anyone who gives Jack crap about not being the funniest or most entertaining... he is a hard working, talented guy, and I couldn't be more inspired.

    Watching this, it wasn't one of those times where and smiling and laughing like mad, but I just had a soft smile for seeing just how far everyone has come and how much farther they can go. I didn't manage to be able to go to this one, but if there is another time they do this I'm going to try my best to go. This was the most heartwarming thing I have seen because you could feel the connection, the love and fight between all of them, and it's just an amazing thing to be able to feel and see. I know that everyone will go a long way!

    I remember when I first heard of roosterteeth. I was browsing youtube in 2005 or 2006 looking for halo stuff. I was only 8 at the time and wasn't really allowed to watch this stuff, so I had my volume jacked way down in my media room. As I'm browsing I come across this thing called red vs blue. I don't remember which season was the newest at that point but I do remember that I cried laughing while watching this. and for a time that's all they were. fast forward four years to twelve and I'm a kid struggling with puberty and the realization that autism and ADHD are going to be a part of my life.....forever. I make way to youtube and once again, I find myself on RvB. this time thou, I dug a little deeper. Its there that I found Geoff and Jack. I had finally gotten a halo game ( reach ) and saw a thumbnail with a halo reach screenshot titled fails of the week. I DIED laughing and it provided me with a distraction that I sorely needed. later I found out that they were a part of this thing called achievement hunter. I found their channel and DEVOURED it. every video, every guide, every n00b ass fail, and I loved it. then I saw a thing called a lets play on the RT channel. it was my favorite guys doing what they loved and having a good time. I remember when the AH channel was abandoned, when the lets play channel was invented, when GO! and HUNT both aired for the first time. And now I'm here. An 18 year old college freshmen ( starting in august ). I have a job, a car, a girlfriend, and, for the first time sense sixth grade, have a peace with who I am and where I belong in the world. The entire time RT and AH have been with me. I always knew that when I had a bad day that I could come home and just tune it out listening to Geoff lose his shit, Gav and Michael fight, Ryan be a crazy psycho, Ray be....whatever the fuck ray is, jack be fat, lil j be a constant source of short jokes, and matt be a fucking dumbass. I couldn't have asked for a better group of guys to help me. And I know this probably wont be seen, but I feel like I need to say it. Thank you Geoff, Gavin, Michael, Ryan, Jack, Jeremy, and Matt. Thank you Burnie, Gus, Barb, and Lindsay. Thank you RT and AH for everything you've brought to the community and your dedication to us.
