You may be wondering...what is this, another Let's Play group? How will this be any different than the other ones I've seen/joined in the past?
Well, let me give you a small look at some of the big plans we have for this group!
Let's Play Directory
There will be a directory page where you can submit your Let's Play channel for everyone to see and follow. It'll be easy to navigate, and everyone will be encourage to submit their channel information! The main goal of this page is to get the word out on our community Let's Players, so the first stop should always be our up-to-date directory!
Weekly Featured Let's Plays
This will be a Mod project where, each week, we will select videos from the community to feature on a news update. There will be an easy way to submit your videos for consideration, and they will be organized by theme so that multiple videos will be posted each week. This means it is important to share your videos and submit them for consideration so you can be featured in the group!
Encouragement to Collaborate
This isn't just a directory page, it is also a place to meet Let's Players and discuss! I know a lot of people are looking to collaborate, and this would be the ideal place to do so. This means that you, as a new member, will get as much out of this page as you put in. Stick around, make forum posts, join the discussion, and maybe you will find a local member you can record videos and gameplay with!
Safe Place To Get Advice/Feedback
Finally, the moderators in this group are looking to keep this as a safe zone for all of our members. This means that we encourage you to take a risk and post your work. If you are new, know that we will work hard to make sure our members only give the best advice possible. There is a difference between advice and criticism, so feedback form is important whenever someone comments on a post. Know that we are here to help you develop and grow, both in viewer count and in general strategy. We will be posting questions and discussions to help encourage people to learn and grow as Let's Players, so make sure you join in!
At the end of the day, remember that this group only can be successful if we have YOU here to contribute. So please take the time to check in and give feedback, let us know when you have a new video or series, and always remember this is a community working together to help each other grow!
Are you going to be at Gencon on August 15th? RSVP and let's see if we can get enough people to meet up! If not, maybe we can wear our RT gear and try and find each other somewhere in a sea of 100,000 attendees!

So, apparently I'm a featured user!
Let me take the time to introduce myself and shamelessly promote some of the things I'm doing here on the site!
I'm an active gamer that loves to play on PS4, Xbox, 3DS, and some retro stuff. I'm always hanging around the sponsor chat, because of course I have nothing better to do. Not as if I should be working or anything like that...
There are a few things I'm trying to do to give back to the community. Rooster Teeth has shaped how the world, and how we, perceive gamers, and I think it is something we all should be proud to be part of.
Here are some of the groups I'm actively working on to help shape the RT experience for myself and others:
This group is dedicated to sharing the word about our fantastic community and the people that stream. If you have a schedule, you can post it in the group for all to see! If you have a group, you can share the word and get some new fans! If you are looking to watch some streams in between the weekly Let's Plays or Podcasts, stop on by this group and check it out! You can join the fun here!
Achievement Hunter Go! The Card Game
In Achievement Hunter: Go! (working title, I'm also thinking of Rooster Teeth: Achieve, The Card Game), you will be able to take on the identify of your favorite Achievement Hunters as they fight to overcome the trials and tribulations in their favorite (or not so favorite) video games! At the beginning, your deck will only contain simple tools to claim achievements and build up your score, but as you progress you will be able to unlock supporting players, in-game advantages, and strategic locations to help you reign supreme! You can join the development team here!
Community Let's Players
This group is dedicated to sharing the word about our fantastic community and the people that create Let's Plays. If you have a channel, you can post it here to be added to the directory! If you are part of a group, you can share your videos and get some more followers! If you are looking to find a new series to watch now that you are all caught up here on Rooster Teeth, stop on by and check out the weekly featured videos! Join the group here! This group LITERALLY was made today, so a lot of changes are about to make it AWESOME!
Community Podcasters (In Development)
Much like the groups above, this group will be dedicated to keeping track of all our awesome community members that produce their own podcasts. It also will be a safe place for people to share their ideas, collaborate, and get some support from others. Watch me as I will be putting up links as I set it up!
Shameless promotion aside...THANK YOU for taking the time to check me out on my FU day! This was so unexpected, and I am really excited to be featured and to potentially meet a lot of new faces here on the site :) Now, I apologize for not accepting all the random friend requests, but you can always join me in a Sponsor Chat, one of my groups, or message me if you really want to be friends!
The internet world has become saturated with individuals and groups who are creating Let's Plays. While we all have our favorite series and authors we love to follow, sometimes we do stray and find the new group that has the content we desire. But what exactly makes a Let's Play worth watching, and a series worth following?
Contribute below with some of the good, the bad, and the ugly things you have seen on the internet. Out of respect for the authors, please do not include links to the videos. This is more for productive discussion, so share what you think should, and should not be done with a Let's Play channel. Let's learn from what we see, and work to figure out how we can improve ourselves in order to produce some awesome content!
Are you planning to stream sometime this week? Please post your time here you are planning.
Post it in the format kind of like this and I'll make sure to add it to the announcement!:
