A Let's Play is a complete playthrough of a computer game, often with commentary provided by the player. The goal of a Let's Play is not to finish the game as quickly as possible, or to provide a simple walkthrough, but to play the game normally, while providing interesting or funny commentary to engage the viewers.
Since July 2009, I have created several of these Let's Plays (the first one was Riven). I play mainly older adventure puzzle games including the Myst series of games and Sierra games. My commentary style tends to be more informative rather than funny, although it varies per game.
I always strive for maximum quality. All games are presented in their correct aspect ratio, with the best resolution possible within the constraints of YouTube (HD for games that support it, or the native resolution of the game if they don't). Game audio is captured directly from the game — not recorded with a microphone — and mixed with the live-recorded narration during editing.
Below is a list of all my Let's Plays, including a link to their respective YouTube playlists.
You find a strange book that transports you to a mysterious island, where you uncover the tale of two brothers. This is the remastered edition of the original game.
Duration: 10 hours, 28 minutes and 25 seconds
I play all the way through Riven, so you get to see how cool it is without worrying about all those complicated puzzles.
Duration: 5 hours, 6 minutes and 44 seconds
The fourth Myst game sees the return of Sirrus and Achenar in what is the most cinematic game of the series.

I play through Uru: Ages Beyond Myst, as well as the To D'ni and Path of the Shell expansions.
Duration: 14 hours, 13 minutes and 55 seconds
Nora and I play through Myst Online Uru Live again. Due to the fact that I've already done Complete Chronicles, the main focus of this Let's Play is those things that are new or different.
Duration: 18 hours, 40 minutes and 23 seconds
The fifth and final Myst game isn't the best of the bunch, but still quite interesting. Join me and discover the fate of Yeesha, the Bahro, and D'ni itself.
