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.

    The only reason I became a sponsor is because I wanted to watch this, and I was not disappointed.

    The amount that I am crying right is probably something to be ashamed of. But I'm not. Because these guys are absolutely amazing.

    To see the dedication and how much is put into their work, good for you RoosterTeeth and everyone that works their hardest. I'm glad too see how far you guy's have made it since i started watching you guys 6-7 years ago. For the record, I would come to see this show if i didn't live way out in Canada. If this becomes a thing I would love to see it one day! Also great RWBY Finale! Thank you RoosterTeeth and great work again!

    Absolutely loved this! It's kind of silly, but seeing them get all nervous and stressed about the show reminded me of how human they all are. I really appreciate all the effort they put into their content and I constantly look forward to watching their videos everyday. Thank you for everything guys!

    I knew they worked hard at what they do! And I appreciate what they, but this made me appreciate them that much more! I love all the content they do, I love them all! This almost made me tear to see them fight, apologize and make it a success!

    This alone made me appreciate Achievement Hunter and Rooster Teeth alone. It feels like this whole event was just for the fans, through and through, and they had a lot of money invested and knew the risks that people would not like this event at all. This was amazing, and thank you so much for Rooster Teeth!

      You cannot. This is a documentary. The whole point of Let's Play Live was that it was for the fans who came there to watch it.

      no. They said it was an event just for those who attended. There might be some videos from people in the audience but no official video.

      @licourtix I felt it then and when they were apologizing. It really shows how close Jack and Geoff are after all these years. They may make fun of each other all day but in the end they are still there for eachother. Simply amazing

    When Jack says " I wonder what's behind this door." and then Geoff immediately opens it, I almost shat my pants.

    This was very emotional for me. To see the true colours of Achievement Hunter on stage is overwhelming.

  • IronGamer FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    I gotta admit, I used Achievement Hunter more often than I ever realized possible before I even realized what Achievement Hunter was. Now I get to see how it all even came about and the amount of effort put into a live showing that I really should have gone to. My respect for Jack taking charge on a situation that could have big a big hole in Rooster Teeth's reputation as well as his own has increased tenfold. Keep up the astronomical work guys! (and gals).

  • ItzMateo116

    Aww, that tender lil side touch by Geoff during that heart-to-heart with Jack. XD

    Great documentary though, it definitely felt like a documentary, which is great. I want to show my family and friends because it makes the whole idea of Lets Plays very real, and logical. It explains what they are in a way that makes them sound reasonable, then presents the viewer with a scenario that shows them that it's a job too- a very real one! On top of all of that, at the end of it all, they can see that it's also very very popular, that people really are watching and loving this.


    God, I wish this was on Netflix.

    I became a sponsor mainly just to watch this and I am sooooo glad I did. I'm so proud to be part of such an amazing community following an amazingly talented and funny group of people. I'm going to stay a sponsor and I'm so glad I discovered Rooster Teeth.
