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.

    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.

    This goes to show the limits these guys will go to for the sake of trying to entertain us. It's pretty amazing and this shows how much hard work that went into this one time deal... I'm glad I got to watch this doc. Love this crew...

    This is absolutely incredible. I love Achievement Hunter - I wish you guys all the best as you go forward. Everything that's done here is absolutely f*cking tremendous. I'd pay for plane tickets if it happened again, I really would. I've been meaning to visit Austin. ;)

    Holy hell that was incredible. I had the lucky opportunity to be living in ATX when this went down and I can only say how happy I am to have been a part of that. I was on the third floor front and center. I'm actually kind of amazed at how much stress went with this. I mean, I knew there had to be some. But to now see how much could've gone wrong and was fixed, they never showed it on stage. To the audience, this thing went off amazingly (minus the one or 2 hiccups with map loading, but they still made it hilarious). Kudos to Jack, Geoff, and the entire team. I'm living in FL now but I will without a doubt make a trek to see this show as long as they put it on. Thanks AH and RT, you guys inspire and push boundaries more then you could ever imagine and I can't wait to see what comes next!

    I really enjoyed you guys talking about the conceptual aspect of this all, how as technology progresses, so does how we interact with entertainment. Geoff, I liked you talking about trying to turn this into a modern equivalent of a rock show--and I'm glad you found that this need for connection to art still exists, like it did just in a new shell. Really great to see it working it. ^_^

    I love the shot of Geoff and Gavin before everyone heads up on stage. It speaks so much about the bond between the two. Mad props to Jack, I wish I could have seen the show.

    The relationship that Jack and Geoff have are my favorite out of all of Achievement Hunter by far. Such good friends. It makes me so happy.

    Im new to the community but it feels like I belong here. I have been watching Red vs. Blue for years but I never thought too look at the people behind the screen until i watched RWBY but it feels like i have aquired a new home in Achievement Hunter and with Rooster Teeth in general. And im sure many of the members here feel the same or similar, and im glad I can be appart of it.

      Because they aren't releasing it. The event was strictly for people who attended live, and the documentary is sponsor only.

    Is anyone else getting the 'setup timeout error'? as I can't watch it and a few other videos because of this

  • Femkroner

    Started a little buffery, but I reset it to the start and it was fine. But I think I watched the whole thing in 240 even though my connection is quite good.

    For some reason this is the only video on the website that fails to buffer when I try to watch it after some seconds.

    Anyone else get this? :( even in 240p it stops

    I have never been more happy to see an Achievement Hunter video such as this. I feel proud to be a fan of their videos and I only wish that I didn't live in a state so far away to see this show in motion. Amazing job as always, Achievement Hunter.

    This documentary's great it shows us what goes behind the scenes and how proud the RoosterTeeth guys accomplishing their goal of pulling off this grand performance for us fans from around the world. It shows us that Let's Plays have become a means of entertainment and being able to relate to the ones playing the games while we watch them.
