Favourite New Youtuber Finds of 2016

Hey everyone!

Oh my goodness, I just got my Macbook back from repairs. It is working! Finally! And I bought a new keyboard protector, and it feels so amazing to type. And I thought it would be a waste not to just post more things on my blog after being so deprived from it.

I thought one good thing I could make a list of, a new one, is one of my favourite new youtubers. These youtubers are not meant to surpass the ones I’ve always been following, and because they are new to me, doesn’t mean they are new at all, but just to put the new ones I’m following this year, and have fallen in love with, into the spotlight. (Not that they need it.) Oh, and I also wonder if I did start following some this year – a year is both long and incredibly short – but they are definitely youtubers I fell more and more in love with.

I feel like for a lot of these youtubers I’ve jumped on the bandwagon so so late. But I’ve just absolutely fallen in love with them. So, in no particular order:

1. Dodie Clarke, i.e. doddleoddle

Dodie just might be my spirit animal. Her voice is sooo beautiful, and when she is off on her little chats, I feel like grabbing a warm tea and just cozying up on the couch. She is just so relatable as a person to me and I can only wish her so much success on her path to pursuit more music and more happiness.

2. Carrie Hope Fletcher, i.e. ItsWayPastMyBedTime

Okay, I feel so behind the bandwagon for this one. But Carrie is sooo amazing! She’s so articulate and insightful and at the same time so so talented and cheery. She’s another British youtuber who I just fell in love with this year.

3. Alex Rainbird Playlists

And this last one is less of “youtuber” and more of an entire music channel that I’ve just loved. I’ve been collecting songs to create a playlist for my wedding dinner, and a lot of my songs came from Alex Rainbird’s monthly indie playlists. I would just play them while I have a shower, and just note down whenever I fell in love with one – which was honestly extremely difficult because I would love an entire string of them and I’d be like “CRAP I NEED TO LIST THEM ALL DOWN!” But it’s a happy problem.

Anywho, those are the three channels! They also feel like ones that will be staples on my subscribe list. (I usually recycle some yearly so I don’t go overboard with Youtube videos – if you’ve read my blog you’ll know how much Youtube I watch … it’s a proper addiction.)

Well, till next time!

Favourite Games of 2015

5 tgfyv - friday

Hey guys!

Happy New Year! It’s finally 2016, and I have a really good feeling about this year. I have yet to make any concrete plans or resolutions, but I have a nervous excited energy about this year. But, before we go on and prepare for all our plans, let me take a quick look back at all the games I’ve loved last year.

Now, personally, I’m not the type to play many games on my own. Mostly cause I suffer from Player 2 syndrome – which I personally classify as a co-op, safer, perfectionist kind of attitude when it comes to gaming. I’m also kind of a backseat driver kind of player. I like to watch other people do things before I give it a go myself so I can assess what can probably be done better. So, a lot of the games I do end up playing on my own have the tendency to be low-risk, creative games. So this list has nothing to do with games I play on my own, and more to do with games that I loved to watch and fell in love with watching.

So here goes:

10. Town of Salem 

Party, strategy | BlankMediaGames, LLC | Browser Steam (software)

Yup, Town of Salem is still a favourite from 2014 – which seems apparent from my most recent, previous post. But it definitely has slipped a couple of notches in my favourite list. Mostly because the servers nowadays are overrun by either people who understand the game enough for each game to be too straightforward, or trolls who are completely trying to ruin the gameplay, or flakes that leave immediately when the game starts leaving either the town or mafia vulnerable.

Favourite Youtubers for this: ChilledChaos, ZeRoyalViking

9. Mario Kart 8

Racing | Nintendo EAD Group No. 1 | Nintendo 

It is the fact that it went up to 200cc and that there are amazing new courses and characters that were added into the gameplay that keeps Mario Kart 8 on my list of favourites. 200cc definitely added to the salt that was already accumulating in the videos of the Derp Crew. Plus, I just love the Big Blue course (final course of Bell Cup). It is a thing of beauty.

Favourite Youtubers for this: TomFawkes, GaLm, ChilledChaos, YOGCAST Kim

8. Depth 

FPS action | Digital Confectioners | Microsoft Windows

Humans vs. Sharks! Depth is another one that was created in 2014, but became a lot more complex and interesting in 2015 with new maps and new game modes and new sharks.

Favourite Youtubers for this: Ohmwrecker, H2ODelirious, GassyMexican 

7. Life is Strange

Episodic graphic adventure | Dontnod Entertainment | Square Enix

A girl who discovers she can turn back time. I kind of expected Life is Strange to be my new To the Moon – but it didn’t really have the same oof to it. There were parts of it that seemed like a generic teen narrative – and then there were some really strong episodes like ‘Out of Time’ (Chapter 2) and ‘Dark Room’ (Chapter 4). So it still makes it in my list because of those unforgettable moments that really took up chunks of my 2015. Plus, spending quality time watching an LP I loved from YOGCAST Kim made it so much more rewarding. I honestly hated all other LPs of it. Kim made choices I would have made.

Favourite Youtubers for this: YOGCAST Kim 

6. Until Dawn 

Interactive drama, survival horror | Supermassive Games | Sony Computer Entertainment

Eight teenagers in a cabin – with something after them. Try to help them survive with the help of the butterfly effect totems. I remember the first time seeing this game I stumbled halfway into a livestream of it on Chilled’s channel. I thought the “Don’t Move” feature of the game, using the motion controls of the PS4 to be amazing – and also I knew that if I ever ended up trying to play this game I would fail miserably because of my naturally shaky hands. So I proceeded to watch every other youtuber do well – or really really horribly – through this game. And honestly the reactions were some of the best parts of my 2015 youtube gaming experience. And I have this game to thank for it.

Favourite Youtubers for this: ChilledChaos, Markiplier, Achievement Hunters

5. Don’t Starve Together / Don’t Starve Shipwrecked

Action-adventure | Klei entertainment

I kind of cheated and put the two together, but they are all under the same game, i.e. Don’t Starve. While I have been watching Don’t Starve for a while now, it is only most recently that I’ve found the right Youtubers and that the new updates make for much more challenging and engaging gameplay. I love the artwork of this game so much and all the small quirks. I so want a beefalo plushie or a chester plushie. Everything in this game just screams out to me.

Favourite Youtubers for this: MathasGames, GassyMexican, OhmWrecker

4. Rocket League

Sports | Psyonix

Okay, it may seem really crazy, but this game is incredibly addictive to watch and, having watched too much of this, I get way too into it. On the surface it seems like just a game of cars playing soccer, but it is so incredibly well-made with slow-mo goals and speed boosters. I think the two friends I suggested this game to immediately became hooked on it for how great it is. Just for the sheer pleasure it brings, it definitely deserves to be high up on my list.

Favourite Youtubers for this: Ohmwrecker, Chilledchaos

3. Undertale

Role-playing | toby fox

What first appealed to me for this game is that you can choose to either fight or talk your way out of a fight – and that all choices you make, the game remembers. At first, I thought that was all the game had going for it, but it really surprised me how much I loved it. It sort of breaks the fourth wall at many points within the game and really pulls the finger of the RPG genre. Because of how original and unique it is, it definitely will be remember as one of my favourites this year.

Favourite Youtubers of this: Game Grumps (Barry and Ross) 

2. Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes 

Puzzle | Steel Crate Games

When I first saw this game being played by Ross, Arin and Barry on Steam Train, I absolutely fell in love with the concept immediately. Basically one of the players will be playing the game (you can even use the oculus rift) and the other friends all have a bomb defusal manual to help that person defuse the bomb. Neither can look at what the other one is doing and they need to rely on one another to get the bomb defused. There are different levels and they get progressively harder, either by increasing the manuals you need to do, the types of manuals or simply just by reducing the timer. Because of how creative the concept is and how impressive it is to watch a person defuse a bomb, I absolutely count it as a really high favourite in 2015. I’m also impartial to puzzle games. It also means I have to be incredibly subjective as to who I watch play this game – because sheer stupidity can be a huge wet blanket. But then again, some people watch it just to see people be stupid.

Favourite Youtubers for this: LtHummus, Game Grumps, Ohmwrecker

1. Splatoon

Third-person shooter, platformer | Nintendo EAD Group No. 2 | Nintendo

And my favourite this year is Splatoon! You’re a kid/squid in a post-apocalyptic world where you’ve entered the Squid Wars, teams battling each other for ink territory. I fell in love with music of this game, the entire game play of it, the lovely art. I also thought it was a wonderful idea for a third-person shooter. Incredibly dynamic – except when there was incredible amounts of lag. So I salute Splatoon as no. 1 in my heart for 2015!

Favourite Youtubers for this: GaLm

So those are my favourites for 2015! It was a good year of Let’s Plays and gaming, especially since I made a concerted and conscious effort to record all of my favourites down. One of my plans this year is definitely to continue doing this. 2015 was definitely a year of progress in my love for video games. I personally managed to complete Portal 2, three chapters of The Walking Dead, Game Dev Tycoon and, as usual, play way too much Sims 3 (I refuse to play the newest version). I hope 2016 I can continued this investment into a nerdy part of me I just refuse to give up – but at the same time I want to be able to negotiate it with my love for books, movies and tv shows as well. So I’m still trying to find a middling ground.

Once again, happy new year! Hope you are all healthy and loved.

Till next time,

My Top 10 Favourite Derp Crew Town of Salem Games of 2015

2 childlike ideals - tuesday

Hey guys!

So indulge me here while I make a list of my top 10 favourite Town of Salem games this year. I made a steadfast effort this year to save all my favourite Let’s Plays into a playlist on Youtube and definitely one of my favourite series has to be the Derp Crew playing Town of Salem.

If you’re unfamiliar with Town of Salem, I made a post a long while ago about it that you can read here and familiarise yourself with. I used to be so addicted to this game late last year and earlier this year and played it continuously. It was so addictive; it feed the logical and curiosity-driven side of me. Long story short, it is a lot like the game Werewolf – or Mafia – or Polar Bear, depending on how it is called when someone probably taught you about it.

All of this being said, here is the countdown to my favourite episode of them playing it. I’m not going to describe any of what happens. Discovering the roles and what happens in the end is the best part after all. Plus, when I go back and watch this I want to be surprised all over again.

10. Grandma The GodFather (The Derp Crew: Town of Salem – Part 59)

9. MIND BLOWN: The Plot Twists! (The Derp Crew: Town of Salem – Part 29)

8. Pokemon Murder Theme! (The Derp Crew: Town of Salem – Part 86)

7. PART 100 SPECIAL!(The Derp Crew: Town of Salem – Part 100)

Note: Referring to the first game only (0:00 – 20:48)

6. MY BEST GAME! (The Derp Crew: Town of Salem – Part 37)

5. THE TRANSPORTER GOD! (Town of Salem QUAD FACECAM w/ The Derp Crew Ep. 29)

And to watch it all unfold from another perspective: The Ultimate Mafia Plan! (The Derp Crew: Town of Salem – Part 30)

4. PIE WARFARE! (The Derp Crew: Town of Salem – Part 48)

3. The Fail Highlight Episode: ZePeePee and Kim Jong Un Dong (The Derp Crew: Town of Salem – Part 32)

Note: Watch 2:25 into the video till 4:53.

2. LoveMyNuts: The PERFECT Game (The Derp Crew: Town of Salem – Part 78)

1. How To Get a BoyFriend (The Derp Crew: Town of Salem – Part 61)

And to watch it unfold from Ze’s perspective: THE EXECUTIONER’S CHOICE! (Town of Salem QUAD FACECAM w/ The Derp Crew Ep. 58)

Well, that’s all from me! Hope to come back to these videos next year and watch them all over again. And, while this list is mostly for my amusement, if you end up watching all of the episodes, do let me know which one you would consider your favourite. 🙂

Till next time!

2015 Update: My Top 5 Favourite Female Beauty Youtubers

5 tgfyv - friday

Hey everyone,

I know, it’s surprising. I haven’t been blogging for about two months and now I’ve posted six days straight. Maybe consider this my version of Vlogmas – just without video, and less Christmas-related and more of a review of different things this year.

So, on 25 April 2014 I made a list of my favourite female beauty gurus on youtube and I realise that a lot has changed from that list since then. Therefore, I present to you an updated list of the female beauty vloggers I watch and love watching currently:

5. Wengie

Wengie is an Asian beauty vlogger from Australia and she’s most well known for her comparison make-up videos like the one above. I’ve recently moved away from Western foundation as my face base to Asian CC creams and it’s always interesting to see how the formulas are different, so her vids are really informative.

4. Suzie aka HelloOctoberxo

I can’t really remember how I found Suzie, but I really have been watching a lot of her videos because she is really personable and friendly. I’m more of a fan of her make-up videos, like the one above as opposed to her fashion hauls. Her style isn’t really up my alley, but I could watch her make-up tutorials forever. Plus she is so beautiful.

3. Zoe Sugg aka Zoella

Yup, Zoe still stays on my list! I feel like she is a staple, especially when it’s currently Vlogmas and I squeal in the middle of the night whenever I see her new video is out. She’s just so bubbly and every single video is just bottled-up happiness. So yeah, Zoe. I love to watch all her videos really – plus her second channel videos. Actually, I like her second channel videos more for some reason. They’re wonderful to just play in the background while I’m doing other things.

2. Poppy Rawson aka MeMyMouse1

Okay, Poppy is love. Poppy is so much love when it comes to beauty vlogging. I feel like she’s always on-point with all her choices when it comes to technique, make-up brands, camera angles and make-up hauls. Of course, it absolutely helps that she has such flawless skin; every single foundation, highlighter, bronzer and blush just looks amazing on her.

1. Tanya Burr

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of Tanya Burr – outside of her makeup tutorials. But if there is one thing that Tanya does amazingly it is to create makeup looks that are just breathtaking and so precise. So I would definitely put her in my number one list for beauty Youtubers.

Again, like last time, if you know anyone like these girls, let me know. Other than that I hope you yourself have discovered some wonderful new vloggers.

Till next time!

Things to Make the Week Bearable

1 silver lining - monday

Hey guys,

Yes, yes, it’s been a while since I’ve written anything on this blog. It seems like the past few days just have been a series of ups and – well, who am I kidding – it’s just been a load of downs. I think even my dreams have been reflective of how psychotic my mind has been. Thankfully I’m somehow so tolerating of bad dreams that I’ve been more fascinated by what warped visions my brain can conjure up, as opposed to shriveling under my covers in fear.

And such dreams so happen to contain wall-and-ceiling crawling apparitions bathing me in voodoo curses, to shark-infested killer waves staining the seas blood red, peppering body parts all over the surface, to blood-thirsty hitmen grabbing me by the throat unexpectedly, to high precarious staircases that I’m forced to navigate to shipwrecks and more drowning in shark-infested waters.

Psychoanalyse that, why don’t you.

But, among all the bad, I think this week I’m finally reaching the light at the end of the tunnel. Please let it not be a dud.

So here are a few wonderful things that have made my life a lot better:

1. The Lizzie Bennett Diaries

LBD

So yes, let’s address the obvious thing here, I’m slow on the bandwagon. Exactly two to three years slow. But better late than never, I suppose. I was never a fan of 19th century literature such as that of Jane Austen or the Bronte sisters, so please excuse me with this very reason as to why I never watched this Youtube series (despite hearing so many snippets about it from random friends).

If you too have not heard of it (*high five*) it is a Web series that does a wonderful job at adapting Austen’s novel, Pride and Prejudice for the modern audience.

While it was initially difficult for me to fall in love with Lizzie (the protagonist pictured in the photo above), being brutally aware of the blatant hypocrisy in which she speaks of the pride and prejudice of others and yet was desperately ignorant of her own, it didn’t take long at all for me to warm up to her and feel like she was deserving of some respect and, perhaps, adulation. I was immediately in love with her older sister Jane and her younger sister, Lydia.

And it only took me this weekend to complete the 100 episode series from beginning to end (don’t worry each episode is only 3-5 minutes long, so it was such a heavy feat as it sounds).

I am resisting the urge to post any pictures of Bing Lee (Bingley) or Mr Darcy as I felt that the surprise at finally seeing them was paramount to the tension and addictive nature of the series. So if you have yet to take up the task, then I suggest you start at the beginning and refrain from any sneak peeks!

2. CrashCourse

CrashCourse

Another Youtube channel that just made my weekend – or more like my day (specifically today) more bearable is CrashCourse. Again, possibly late on the bandwagon. Specifically, it’s the World History playlist from this channel that I am oddly addicted to.

What’s it about? Well it’s John Green – yes, The Fault in Our Stars, and Paper Towns John Green – serving a dish of historical pie to the supposed History last-minute exam crammers. Surprising the audience for these videos do not merely include those who require some historical education – or maybe not surprisingly cause John Green somehow makes civilisation-learning fun – but it also contains a whole bunch of people who binge watch it for entertainment. Yes, world history as entertainment.

And because of these videos I had the etymology of barbarian, Barbary Coast, ashur, pantheon and Zoroastrianism clogging up my tabs.

My head almost exploded after the perspective-taking of the Persians and the Greeks – empire vs. democracy – speech that I had to take a break today.

3. Teen Wolf Season 5

Teen-Wolf-Season-5

It’s been a pretty grim beginning to the new season of Teen Wolf and I’m already slowly developing my own theory as to the role and purpose of these new nemesis, the ‘Doctors’.

There is nothing much to say really, apart from the fact that, since the episodes come out on Tuesdays, there is always something for me to look forward to at the start of these weeks. Which makes everything so much better when I can see Kira and Lydia slowly growing into their element.

Well, those are the three things that make my days slightly better. They could also equally be the contributing factor to my current wild dreams – at least I know that Teen Wolf should be partially to blame for them. No psychoanalysis yet?

Oh, and sideline things making me happier, I made a pre-order purchase of Ernest Cline’s new book, Armada, that is, according to Book Depository, on its way to being shipped. If I manage to finish it, I’ll probably do another book review. As you can probably see from my Books Read List of 2015, 2015 has not been my year for reading. It’s been abysmal at best.

Let’s not dwell on that – have a bearable and, maybe even, amazing week, guys!

Till next time,

In the Spotlight: This Wild Life

5 tgfyv - friday

Hey everyone!

It’s definitely been a while since I’ve posted a TGFYV. But I thought it was apt, after having done the 30 Day Song Challenge, that I share this band that I just found and have been listening to for the past few hours.

They are called This Wild Life and are an acoustic pop-punk duo with Kevin Jordan on vocals and Anthony Del Grosso on guitar. I heard their song from Becca Rose; they were the background music to her makeup tutorial. But I had to stop the tutorial just to look them up. But enough talking, I’ll let you hear how wonderful they are.

and lastly, I thought this song was very apt because it references Easter … but only in words, not theme:

Enjoy your weekend, guys!

My Top 10 Youtube Gaming Channels of 2014

5 tgfyv - friday

Hi guys!

The end of 2014 is upon us. I remember it being February and I thought to myself how long this entire year would be and how I felt like I would never make it to this point in my life – but then suddenly everything was swept up in a Wizard-of-Oz-esque tornado and right now I feel like Dorothy, having experienced an entire adventure that required more brains, courage and heart than I’ve had to muster before.

But, enough of that. Along with the entire experience of 2014, I’ve realised, after collating this list, that my taste in a lot of things have changed. And, I thought it apt to sum up my favourite Youtube gamers of 2014. Maybe the year after I can do this again and see how things change once more.

Firstly, a special mention …

Special Mention: REACT channel by the Fine Bros

REACT Channel - Outlast

I love watching the kids/teens/elderly react to all kinds of videos, but this year, I believe the Fine Bros made a smart move (among many other smart moves) to create a channel in which their “victims” react to all sorts of other things. Among the things they react to, besides food, giving advice, and toys, is video games. For those who aren’t the usual viewers of gamer channels on Youtube. I feel like this is a good channel to start.

Now, let’s get to the actual list …

10. YOGSCAST Kim

I got into Kim’s Channel mostly because I was so addicted to Mario Kart 8 videos and all the usual channels I’m subscribed to had been exhausted. Kim of the Yogscast was exactly what I was looking for. After that, I watched a lot of her other videos and I’m absolutely in love with them. It helps that she plays the games I’m typically interested in, which include Steam Indie Games and Nintendo Games. She’s a good one to also start off with if you’re not much of a gamer yourself but like to watch a group of people have a fun time instead of having a fun time yourself. (‘Cause I’m sad like that sometimes.) 

9. Polaris

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I mostly watch FriendZone from Polaris. There are some cast members I absolutely love, like Dodger, the occasional GameGrump(s), NintendoFanFTW, and CinnamonToastKen, but others I find are rather (excuse the pun) dodgy. And because of this they’re not higher on my list. But they have some really lighthearted content that you can just click on and be sure that you can waste a good hour or so with: playlists such as “Sort This!” and “Table Flip” and “Strippin’s Got Game Show”. And probably because of this, this gaming channel has dug itself a nice warm spot in my heart this year.

8. GassyMexican

For me, it’s been pretty difficult to figure out who to watch when there’s a huge group of gamers that are together and play the exact same game and will generally have to same audio but somewhat different footage. I’m not the type of person anymore who will waste their time watching the same played game from four or five different perspectives (cue meme: Nobody’s got time for that!) Before this year GassyMexican had been the gamer that I’d see from another person’s perspective and never gone on his channel to check out his. But, by the end of 2014, I’ve realised I really like this guy’s personality and now he’s crawled his way up to one of the few that I’d probably only check the perspective of.

7. Lets Play (RoosterTeeth)

Maybe a year ago the guys from Achievement Hunter would have been at the top of this list, but this year they’ve lost a significant amount of their charm for me. (Cue a completely unexpected rant:) I used to get so dang excited about their next Minecraft or Grand Theft Auto videos, but now I leave their Minecraft videos on my Watch Later list for weeks before I watch them and I don’t even blink at their GTA vids anymore. I avoid their comment section at all cost because everyone seems to be so negative. But that doesn’t mean I don’t love their content. Personally what I enjoy the most from this channel lately are the more random games they play. If anything those are the games I wish they’d play more. Personally I completely disagree with Geoff that their best videos are their GTA vids. If anything, they need to stop having Minecraft and GTA as continuous series – heck, even get rid of their Versus, Hunt and Go – and cater to the numerous other games out there that have yet to lose their charm from overplay.

6. SeaNanners

For such short 2-3 minute videos, SeaNanners’ Channel is amazing. His personality is infectious and you instantly fall in love with it, and this is probably why he has such a loyal following. My favourite videos of his include when he plays The Hidden and Garry’s Mod Prop Hunt. The only reason why he’s probably not higher up in this list is because he’s not much of an all-rounded gamer. Garry’s Mod is his territory and often you’ll realise you’re not watching it for the game itself but the creative conversations and mini-games he and his friends create within it – which is amazing sometimes and other times can be complete misses for me.

5. ZeRoyalViking

The above video is probably the weirdest and best videos I’ve seen from Ze. If you had asked me last year who my favourite Youtubers were, Ze probably would not have been on the list. In fact, he wasn’t someone I even probably could identify on Youtube – yet. But this year, I realise that I’ve been watching a lot more of his videos; videos such as DerpCraft (I preferred his perspective as he was the one who was actually building a lot of things – albeit bridges – among the others) and I felt like I’d been on an emotional journey with him as I watched his series on “My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant” – which was amazing beyond belief. And, because of these unforgettable moments, he’s climbed up to my 5th favourite Youtube Gamer of 2014.

4. Game Grumps

Game Grumps had some beyond amazing moments for me this year. A little lacklustre towards the end of the year, but incredibly solid videos in the beginning and middle of this year. I absolutely fell in love with the entire cast: Arin, Danny, Ross, Barry and Suzie. Their humour is always so on par. They have incredible stories and conversations during their videos and they really make subscribers feel like they’re part of one huge family. I would love to have Arin or Danny as an uncle, Ross as an annoying brother and Barry as a supportive one and Suzie as an amazingly creative and sweet sister. The only reason why they’re not higher on this list is because they cannot master “storytelling” video games, which is a real bummer. When you watch a Game Grumps video, be sure to be entertained by their fails and successes, but usually never with the backstory of the video they’re playing. And because of this, they cannot surpass my next favourite Youtube video gamer …

3. Markiplier

I’ll be honest and say I’m not that much of a loyal follower of him, I don’t watch every video he comes out with every day, every week of every month. But the three series that I did watch him complete, Outlast, Outlast: Whistleblower and Among the Sleep, were some of the best series I watched this year. Watching Mark play a game, you can tell he is so respectful and admirable of the video game developer’s craft; he is so immersed in the story, and some of the lines he screams out are genius. I can guarantee that I’ll start 2015 with a newfound respect for his videos and definitely catch more of them in future. I also personally appreciate that he takes the time to finish the videos and pay attention to details within them. If there were any Youtube Gamer out there who shows genuine appreciation of his career and the content he deals with, it’s Markiplier.

2. CriousGamers

It’s really difficult out there to find a Youtube gamer who has a good mix of everything in his/her channel and in themselves. ChilledChaos definitely does have a whole lot of everything that makes him one of my most go-to channels for gaming. It is (almost) safe to say that in this entire year I’ve watched at least one of his videos every day. Chilled has charisma, intelligence, is (sometimes questionably) a nice guy and is a more than decent gamer such that he won’t make you cringe when he takes on a game or goes in a competition against other gamers. He will make you cringe in other departments – such as his terrible cosplay of Princess Peach – but, that’s okay, you can skip those videos if they’re a bit too risque. All that aside, because of his consistency and dedication to his channel, he’s still up there (and probably will be up there for a long time) among my favourites.

1. OhmWrecker

This one is a surprise to me, because if I was told in the beginning of this year that I would put OhmWrecker before RoosterTeeth and ChilledChaos in a list of my top 10 favourite Youtube Gamers, I would have not believe you, but I admit, it’s true – very very true. OhmWrecker has the knack of finding games, like Don’t Starve Together, Depth, Evolve, and Town of Salem, that I will just watch the heck out of. Some nights have been spent this year going on marathons of Ohm’s videos, staying up to as late (or early) as six in the morning finishing off, just one more, Town of Salem video. What makes his videos even more appealing is the friends he surrounds himself with and the personality that he projects in his video. Because of all of this dedication to his channel, I would gladly put him at the top of my list.

And that’s it! That’s the list. Among all these amazing Youtube video gamers are hundreds of thousands of video games played, and a whole range of them to satisfy anyone’s cravings. If you had to follow just ten video gamers on Youtube, I suggest that you follow these guys. 😀

Till next time!
