Let's Play Live: The Documentary

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.

    There have been people that have taken theatres and filled them to the brim to watch them play video games, game grumps live, but lets play live i feel would be an entirely different ball game

    edit: never mind I hadn't seen the dates before i poster this comment, Lets play live came before game grumps live...oops

    It was so emotional up until 14:50 when they go into the empty room, turn on the light, and then close the door and leave. I laughed so hard at the waste of electricity and took me out of the moment hahaha

    I will most proudly admit that I teared up at some points. It is truly amazing what these guys were able to do. Now they have even done an entire tour of Let's Play Live!

    I couldn't be prouder of these amazing people. They thrive on self-deprecating humor, but at this moment in time I wish I could tell them in-person how wonderful and inspiring their dedication is and have them hear me and believe me. 

    This is the kind of experimenting and crazy ideas that make me want nothing more than to work with Rooster Teeth and Achievement Hunter.

    At 14:24 made me tear up a little. It was surprisingly tender and caught me off guard. This is why they've been able to function as a team for so long, the willingness to apologise and move on.

    No matter how many times I watch this, it always makes me cry. I'm just so proud of everything these guys do.
    I had no idea what Rooster Teeth would become when I was just a teen watching silly Halo videos some guys made. I left the realm of internet videos for quite a few years, but when I came back Fails of the Weak popped up in recommended videos. Imagine my surprise when I found out Achievement Hunter was part of Rooster Teeth, who was not just a little group of guys making Halo videos anymore but an entire company of people making content in many different styles, with their own freaking convention.
    I've been a rebirthed fan since early 2014. All because Fails of the Weak led me back.

    Achievement Hunter is what initially led me to Roosterteeth. I still remember stumbling upon like their 4th minecraft video (the first RT/AH video I ever watched) when I was younger and becoming hooked. I eventually discovered all the other videos the company produced and I've been a Youtube subscriber of the channels ever since. Today I became a first member and seeing the behind the scenes of this video has already made that money well spent. Long story short, thanks for everything AH guys and I hopoe the train keeps rolling

    Having gone to LPL Orlando back in April, being on a Greyhound bus for 3 and a half hours both ways, this made me cry. As part of this community, I want to thank everyone who's made any of these shows possible, especially Jack. Thank you so much. Let's Play Live is genuinely the coolest experience I've had in my life. I hope that you guys can do more of these shows, they're amazing. Thank you

    I absolutely love how they go from they super touchy, sentimental moment where jack and Geoff are making up after fighting briefly, to walking into the completely empty room and seeing their mystified reactions. To go from tears to laughter so quickly was an odd, but welcome feeling.


    It's kind of cool how the First Let's Play Live kick-started this idea of live video game stage performances, and now they have annual LPL's and they're on tour, and in turn, this video kick-started the RT Docs series, which is now one of the best forms of content on this website. Two amazing things that have changed, and will continue to change, what Rooster Teeth is, began right here thanks to Let's Play Live.

    I'm going to the New Jersey Let's Play Live. Watching this has made me even more excited to be going and to have the meet and greet. This doc makes me so emotional seeing people getting to do what they love and share that with people who they don't know, but love anyways. The RT community is a beautiful thing.

    Listening about how this was started, thinking about it now makes me think "Of course this would be successful." But listening to the planning makes me realise how big of a jump this concept was for AH.

    shame they didn't use the gopro footage of the entrance of the venue, though it was probably for the best since I was staring into the camera creepily for a solid portion of it being there.

    I finally gave in to try the free trial to see this documentary. I am so happy with it. To be completely honest, I have never wanted to go to something so badly. And Im sad that I'm poor and cant go to the east coast tour which is really close to me. One day I will though. Jack did a FUCKING AWESOME JOB AND I HOPE HE IS PROUD OF ALL THE WORK HE AND EVERYONE ELSE PUT INTO IT.

    Having been debating forwards and backwards whether or not to get First for this documentary in particular, I am glad I did.

    Even more so since I am very much so interested in what an event like this entails, especially when it comes to tech and production.


    Great documentary. I hope I will some day get to attend an event like this <3

    Watching this again after how long and wishing so much once more that I could one day be involved with this company in some capacity. Whether that be attending a live event, working there, or just interacting with somebody for even a few brief moments. Can't help but love these people and everything they do.

    This is a great video. I just started my subscription and the first video i wanted to see was this one. I can agree with what they said in that for those like me who are somewhat shy or nervous of meeting people or being in the spotlight, that there is a community here at Rooster Teeth that can embrace who we are and make us feel special. Thank you to everyone here at Rooster Teeth for what they do and changing my life in many ways!
