Who was the biggest inspiration to your lets play career and what's your overall view of lets playing as a whole?

In order: @ThaRadBrad, @tobyturner, and @SSoHPKC
TheRadBrad because right when I started my channel, he messaged me some very kind words, featured my channel at the side of his channel, and I've always admired his work ethic. He's given very solid advice for me the whole way through.
Tobuscus because he too was nice and helpful, and he and I both had been on YouTube doing non-gaming content for awhile prior.
SSoHPKC because he played my Super Mario World ROM hack and in general had some friendly advice.
