Notability in the Let's Play community
There are very little people that has managed to gain popularity as quickly as Pdp, in the art of Lets Playing. It can be quite baffling, as new Lpers who attempt to gain popularity Via playing obscure titles, usualy remain unnoticed. But what makes pdp stand out in the crowd of the many L Pers that has tried and failed to maintain a decently sized fanbase, can be summarised in a word that makes pdp unique: Character.
When a person watch Pewdiepies videos, there is always an ongoing activity of some sort. Very rarely do Pewdiepie wander in the dark engulfed by the atmosphere; He is always try to lighten the mood with his enthusiasm and cheeriness for the viewer, who otherwise would be viewing what would be painful padding of aimless exploring. Even that rarely occur, as pdp has a tendency to be in running motion for the most part. Most likely because of his time limit of aproximately ten minutes for each video. He also has a tendency to name make characters out of objects in the games he play, who he carry around and speak with whenever it is possible.
Only a few things slow him down when he himself doesn't want to. Once Pdp seriously get stuck in a game, he quickly resorts to using a walkthrough, or ask for help from the Bros (activity with the community is something of a priority of his.)
Speaking of which, aside from his first videos he almost always have a webcamera recording himself. It shows his reactions to events in the games he play, and he communicates with his viewers through it frequently. That is another great difference between him and other Lpers; he is seen the whole time. The viewers relate to him much easier, as if they were in the room with him as a couple of friends, and is most likely why fanart is made of him in a frequent pace.
These are some of the reasons why Pewdiepie is different from the whole Lets Play community seen today. His way of making the LPs are too different from the ordinary formula, and that makes him easily memorable.
