Prepare to Suffer: Let’s Play as Well Played
Moses Wolfenstein, Paul Berberich

It postulates that the Let’s Play (LP) narrated video format is an optimal modality for documenting a well-played video game. The authors explore this idea through their own playthrough and LP of Dark Souls by From Software. In addition, they examine how the LP can serve as a record of learning.
