The "Let's Play" series is from Deep Silver and I wouldn't class them as shovelware.
The games in the series I have tested so far have all been much better than expected. They're not going to set the gaming world on fire, but they are well put together games, and certainly quite a bit of thought has been put in to them, as opposed to some of the more thrown together efforts by Ubisoft for instance.
The subject matter isn't going to be for everyone, but that no reason to call it shovelware. Nearly any subject can be turned into a game, but whether it's good or not is usually down to how much thought and attention is put into it's creation.
