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.

    I love how Ray was able to be involved in something so great and awesome, and then went off to live his own life. Like he had great timing and was so lucky.

    This video moved me! It was amazing to see behind the scenes interactions between the members of AH (even other Rooster Teeth employees). It's just great! You are all so inspiring!

    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.

  • 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.

    Watched it again because of Off Topic, third time i've watched it and it still makes me emotional. So much love.

  • ChristineMot

    This video, this concept, is truly phenomenal. I couldn't understand at first why I was getting teary and emotional, I kept thinking "these are just the guys I've watched for the past xxx years", but it's SO much more than that. Video games provide such a strong outlet for people and it's a huge bonding catalyst. You guys, RT, AH, all of it, you have provided so much to us, the community and viewers, it's amazing. You don't realize how much of an inspiration you are and how much hope you give to those who need it. There was a moment where the video was on a younger kid and his face was just lit up, in total amazement and having fun. Seriously made me cry like an 8 year old.

    I love this. I want more of it. Make it happen. <3

    This is now the second time I’ve watched it, and I got super teary and emotional several times throughout the documentary both watches. Still so incredibly proud of our boys, and I cannot wait to see what else they have in store for us!

    I'm so glad I was able to ditch work for this event, I bought a ticket like a week out with what was left of my paycheck and made sure to get there early. The energy in the building was simply amazing, so much positivity and I'm that helped this show be such a success, the RoosterTeeth/AchievementHunter community is the best group of people I've ever seen. Seriously love these guys!

  • Fox77

    what I got out of this was the leadership that geoff has with these guys, and the creative freedom that he gives them. The moment when he and Jack were kinda at each other's throats and then it cut to the whole apology, goes beyond a working relationship. These guys are friends and prolly will be forever. They have a great thing going and I'm super happy to call myself a fan of rt for 10 years now.

    Keep up the great work guys and always, ALWAYS, know you have to best fan base out there. Bar none.

    This is the first video I've ever watched on this website.. I've watched for years on youtube, ever since a simple walk into mordor but for some reason today was the day I decided to become a sponsor. Not only am I choked up from seeing guys I've loved for so long do something so incredible but I'm also proud? In a way? Ya know, I've thought about doing lets plays, just like I'm sure most of you have, but watching this makes it seem like less of a daunting task. You guys give a lot of hope to people even though I'm sure it's never been part of the plan. This community is incredible, and inspiring, and I couldn't be happier to be a part of it. You guys are proof that nothings impossible.

    My favorite line was: "If things break, as long as we can play off of the failures as much as the successes, then we can make good content out of it," from Ryan. Like, this is applicable to so many aspects of my life it just hit home for me.

    This is bloody brilliant! Absolutely amazing! This is one of the most inspiring things I've seen in a long time - you guys are seriously amazing! This lit a fire in me I didn't even know I had, all I want to do is put on some energetic music and just create something as creative and as extraordinary as this! God, you guys are all amazing! Keep it up!
