I thoroughly enjoy watching playthroughs of games on youtube. I don't always have the time to set up and play a game on my own. It's nice to watch someone else play, and it can be a good way to figure out if a game is interesting to you if you don't have access to trying the game without buying it. You can also learn the basic rules and ideas of the games in this manner. If I had the time/technical savvy/cameras, I would start my own channel, but unfortunately I don't. Instead, I get to watch others on youtube. My dream would be for someone to film a series of an entire campaign of Descent or something along those lines (I like watching different scenarios/playthroughs of the same game). I know of a few channels that I enjoy watching, but I'd love to find more to watch. Please post any that you find to be entertaining.

Black Belt Gaming offers many walkthroughs of mostly solo games and even some proper RPGs. His playthroughs of the D&D adventure boardgames are my favorites of his.

Watch It Played is another good channel to watch. Rodney's rules explanations are top notch, and while his videos may move a little slow, that is due to his explaining everything so that you may not get confused. Gameplay videos are rather entertaining. He plays with his family members usually, and viewers are invited to submit decisions for gameplay as well.

Box of Delights presents some incredibly entertaining playthroughs of often complex games, including Mage Knight. I went out and bought Mage Knight immediately after viewing his series, and it has quickly become one of my favorites.

Mythos Gamer has some complete games of Arkham Horror posted, although he hasn't posted anything in quite awhile. It'd be great to see more videos if he happens to see this.

A Lonesome Gamer also has gameplay videos, although this is a new discovery for me and I haven't watched many yet. Nevertheless, something to check out.

A few years back there was a fantastic game/component reviewer by the name of Jeremy Salinas. He did a series called Man Vs Meeple Video Series.

Sadly, about a year ago he stopped doing the series as there was some conflict about his video being used by a publisher without his express permission. Anyhow, Jeremy's series of component breakdowns stand out for me as the best of the best as far as game explanation and component breakdowns go.

Inittially I HATED Rahdo's reviews because of how the camera moved around so much and here was this guys (seemingly ADD) trying to explain a game whilst moving. After I got over that initial stuff I realized after watching a review of The Castles of Burgundy that Rahdo gets you exited about games because he is playing the game right in the moment. He explaints the game as he is playing with a pseudo-girlfriend (who is real) Jen. What Rahdo does best is that he gives you the true feel of a game and how tense decisions can be for any given game....I'm hooked!

Michael also has an excellent series of Walkthrough vidoes. Many of them are of the Eurogame variety, but he also shows games like Core Worlds and Sentinels of the Multiverse. They are very well done.

Scott plays through two encounters of "A Fat Goblin" (and many other games) as part of his Critical Plays series of vids. He does reviews, interviews, and whatnot as well, but the Critical Plays section is what is relevant to your geeklist.

The Cardboard of the Rings is all playthrough vids of LotR LCG. While it's only one game, they offer plenty of videos showing all aspects of the game and its many additions.

Markus has a nice mix of Euro and Thematic game playthrough videos as well, and they are well produced.
