There can be no denying the popularity of watching other people on the Internet play video games. Websites like Twitch and YouTube are full of people who enjoy broadcasting themselves as they play through struggles, trials, and successes of almost any game. More and more names of note have arisen in this industry, dedicating their entire careers to doing just this.
Some have even turned this idea into charity, using video games to raise money and awareness for different causes of need (cough Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2018 next month cough cough). You really don’t have to look hard to find a video of someone playing your favorite game.
Over the past couple of years, Nintendo has slowly come to embrace this popular concept, relaxing their formerly-thought-strict policies on live streams and YouTube videos; allowing more to partake in this form of entertainment. Which for us means more streams and videos of Zelda games, especially post-release of Breath of the Wild.
So, who does it best? Who is your favorite? For me, watching Achievement Hunter’s “Let’s Watch: Zelda – Breath of the Wild” series takes the cake. Having a various cast of Let’s Players with different opinions on Nintendo and the Zelda series yielded what I found to be one of the funniest playthroughs I have seen.
