@KillScottKill While I agree that many LP channels maintain viewership with their personality, you cannot begin to deny the fact that the different games they play make an impact on view count for various videos. I, for one, have skipped or watched many Game Grumps episodes depending on what they're playing; and I'm not alone. For instance, the first episodes of their LPs for Mega Man 7 and Kirby Super Star (Nintendo game) were released the same day about two years ago. Kirby Super Star holds almost twice as many views. The same holds true for comparing their first LPs of Pokemon Emerald Version vs. Goof Troop (1.78 mil vs 1.06 mil views). Specific games make a huge difference in the viewership the LPers thrive on, so I don't know where you get off thinking they're entirely entitled to that difference, let alone all of the rest..

The thing is that even though it's "free advertising", does it really significantly affect Nintendo (not the initially unknown games that are beside the point)? If you look at the view counts for different videos from one let's-player, I think that you'll find very different numbers from the different games that they play; and we can attribute this to the fact that viewers want to see a let's-player play a particular game. In this case, are the let's-players promoting the games more, or are the games promoting the let's-players more? I think given such a question, it's silly for people like Pewds to feel so entitled, especially when he may very well have never gotten any viewers to begin with without a popular video game to ride on.
