** On the topic of that last part, Chugga's earlier years featured a rather notable amount of miscellaneous videos, with one of them being the first video he uploaded on his channel. His "Fifty Facts" video was removed after some of the eponymous facts became outdated, and most of his 2008 ''[[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Pokémon Platinum]]'' videos[[labelnote:Note]]Not to be confused with his 2016 LP of the game.[[/labelnote]] were removed because he was disappointed with their quality (they were recorded on a camcorder). However, most of his miscellaneous videos are still up on his channel, buried between his earlier Let's Plays.
* WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}} was notably a ''lot'' harsher when it came to their jokes and criticism in regards to the Let's Play they were currently [[{{MST}} MSTing]], to the point to can come off as DudeNotFunny to some. Part of the reason that, while they still take jabs at the Let's Player they're Retsupurae-ing, they make a conscious effort to not go too far with it is because they admit to being [[OldShame openly ashamed of how harsh some of their 'jokes' were in their earlier videos.]]

* Creator/{{Zero9teen}}, one of the earliest Let's Players on [=YouTube=], initially started out making videos of him messing around in the ''VideoGame/DeadRising'' demo. His first true Let's Play on ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'' utilized {{Emulation}}, while most other videos involved the age-old method of filming the television screen with the camera. Eventually, he started recording gameplay footage for his Let's Plays using a capture card, and after several long hiatuses, nowadays streams live on his Twitch account.

* Just take a look at ChipCheezum's early videos of ''VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil''. The audio quality was quite poor, they talked over cutscenes without editing out their commentary, and General Ironicus ''didn't even have his name''. Chip Cheezum even admits in the [=YouTube=] description that [[CreatorBacklash they had no idea what they were doing at the time]].

* {{PewDiePie}}'s original talkthrough of "Amnesia The Dark Descent" lacks most of his trademark quirks. Most notably, in the first video he says that he hasn't played a lot of horror games. He also actually collects the tinderboxes, is a lot more scared, has a thicker accent, and isn't constantly [[NoIndoorVoice yelling]]. At one point he throws [[CompanionCube Stephano]] and runs. Perhaps his most jarring difference is that he doesn't have his rivalry with the "[[AlwaysChaoticEvil BARRELS!]]" The Alien Abduction custom story is when he becomes the persona that is either loved or hated by so many for what tend to be the exact same reasons.

** The first two or so seasons of their machinima series also plays up their routines (Pat as the angry, abusive one and Matt as the dumb, childish, goofish one) far more. They would also feign ignorance on numerous subjects, the most obvious examples being in their ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' video. It's jarring to watch their full-lengthed LP's and later Machinima episodes, where they act far more naturally and display a thorough knowledge of video games and the industry, then go back to their ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' episode and watch Matt obliviously and ignorantly dismissing the game as bad for trivial reasons and Pat going into sputtering rages over each and everything he does.

** ''Let's Play Minecraft's'' EarlyInstallmentWeirdness is the series' first ten episodes. At the beginning, only Creator/GavinFree knew how to play Minecraft and would constantly {{troll}} the other AH members. The Tower of Pimps was a creation of that trolling before it became a MacGuffin for the series. Achievement City was [[spoiler:a troll attempt on Jack Patillo by Geoff Ramsey and Gavin]] before it became their starting hub. They wouldn't get their trademark skins until episode 10, when the events and the Tower of Pimps became commonplace. Jack, Geoff, Gavin and Creator/MichaelJones are the only four members still around - Creator/RayNarvaezJr was also one of the originals, but he left in early 2015, Caleb Denaour was the group's SixthRanger for the early days until a cheating incident lead him to being pushed out and replaced with Ryan Haywood.
** Like with ''Minecraft'', ''Let's Play Grand Theft Auto's'' EIW is within its first few episodes. Most of those were both Things to Do In and just screwing around in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV''. It wasn't until they started doing "Cops n' Crooks" that things would begin to go into the "Let's check out the game modes on this thing", also, they only stayed on ''GTA IV'' for a few months, essentially waiting for ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' to come out.

* ''LetsPlay/{{Patterrz}}'''s earlier ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' playthroughs are weird to watch now, since he is overall much slower and calmer. It wasn't until his Emerald Eliminationlocke that he began to be much more upbeat during the entire run and talked louder.

* The first year of ''GameGrumps'' consisted solely of Arin playing games with Jon. Barry and Suzy were often mentioned but [[TheGhost never seen]]. The spin off series like ''SteamTrain'', ''TableFlip'', and ''Grumpcade'' didn't exist. Danny, Ross, Kevin, and reoccurring guests like {{Markiplier}} and ProJared weren't in the original series either. It was after Jon left the show in 2013 when new members and shows were being introduced.

Added DiffLines:

** For better or worse, LetsPlay/{{Markiplier}} is really loud. But even he started out this way, relatively speaking. Compare his original Amnesia LP to his recent Mario Maker videos.
