Default Prime's Alex Carlson: "It’s become something so common (and in some cases derivative) that it’s become almost an unwritten standard to have at least one Let’s Play on your gaming Youtube channel. But behind this massive following, something definitely has emerged. The Let’s Play format isn’t just a Youtube fad; it has literally changed the face of gaming culture, giving the typical gamer power that was originally reserved for elite gaming journalism outlets."
