a term that evolved on its own in the gaming/YouTube culture

Yeah like, two kids and a ball beat YouTube and gaming by hundreds of years on that one I think.

The phrase "let's play" being used as a noun is a new phenomenon.

Got it. Like, "just do it" or something.

The connotation is completely different though. "Let's play" the statement has been around for centuries. "Let's play" the term/genre is a fairly new phenomenon, and to equate those two things would be disingenuous at best and ignorant at worst.

Well, call me ignorant then. Which I don't think is worse than being disingenuous by the way.
