    What YouTubers do you watch on a regular basis?

    My list has gotten pretty small over the years.

    The only ones I seem to watch every single video they put up are Pewdiepie, Jontron, Binging with Babish, SomeOridinaryGamers, Thoughty2, Simon & Martina, Sam the Cooking Guy, and The Film Theorists/Game Theorists.

    Some of these channels don't even do daily videos. It is an odd mix as well but I enjoy each channel for different reasons. I used to have several different videos daily to watch now on average, I get maybe 2 or 3, sometimes more if there are holiday videos happening.

    I've got a few. I really like Red Letter Media. They do a lot of really good reviews. What I like about them is that they don't go into groan inducing comedy that people like the Nostalgia Critic does. Oh sure, they do skits during the review but it's brief and never outstays it's welcome. I also like that their reviews don't just bash a movie for the sake of bashing it. They get snarky about it but you get a sense that they gave the movie a fighting chance and goes into a movie's good points as well as bad ones. They do other content as well like the Nerd Crew which makes fun of shill nerd channels like Collider. It is a hoot to watch just because it's so sarcastic and spot on with how a lot of those channels feign enthusiasm for certain franchises but are obviously kissing corporate ass.



    Speaking of movie reviewers on youtube, another one is the critical drinker. He isn't quite as in depth as Red Letter Media but his drunken ramblings about the shit that gets released nowadays is always a fun listen. He also brings up a good point about something I wish people got through their heads more...that having themes in and of itself does not make your movie inherently good.



    I also watch oneyplays from time to time. I normally don't watch let's plays but the banter is fun to hear, especially when making fun of the Nostalgia Critic.

    My subscription list is ginormous and I do check out most of their videos (unless I've been unsubscribed or "de-belled" by the algorithm) occasionally. There are some I'll rarely miss a video from. Some I watch because... reasons. Obviously, I'll have to exclude YouTubers who have left the platform for a long period of time. So, this won't be short, but off the top of my head and looking at what pops up in my sub video list...

    What YouTubers do you watch on a regular basis?-tnxqmai-png ReviewTechUSA

    “Skibbity bop'm da da!"

    This is Italian-American Rich Masucci's (informally known as RTU) channel. Ironically only a handful of his content actually involves reviewing tech, but I find most of everything else he does quite entertaining. It's primarily gaming news content but sometimes more general. He used to get caught up in YouTube drama and was prone to trolling. Over the years he learned to simply not feed them. He seldom reports on politics because of the negativity it produces within his audience.

    Back in the day he was morbidly obese but has lost a lot of weight (still overweight though) and often speaks out against body positivity. What I like about Rich is that he's simply a very straightforward guy. He just delivers gaming (and other) news as promised and doesn't beat about the bush. Sometimes his videos are funny as fuck. Usually on-camera, I find him charismatic and generally likeable. This contrasts with YouTubers who cover similar topics such as MundaneMatt (Matt Jarbo, also known as Matt Mundane or Boulder Man) who is quite narcissistic, dull, and engages in nefarious practices like false-flagging.

    Sample



    What YouTubers do you watch on a regular basis?-oaf7opp-png GenoSamuel

    “What made him this way? What is the attraction? What keeps us fascinated? This is the story of Chris-chan."

    I'm not the only one here who watches GenoSamuel's videos. He is most well known for his documentary series about notorious internet legend Christian Weston Chandler. (We have a thread on him.) Sure, there are lots of channels and video series out there on YouTube about notorious people, but what makes GenoSamuel's documentary special is the level of detail and effort he puts into it. Chris-chan is fascinating, perhaps for all the wrong reasons, and Geno is managing to condense this insanely long history into a more digestible medium. (Still long, though! Currently at part XXX. )

    His narration is fantastic and he even composed a soundtrack for it himself. He's definitely the kind of guy I could see becoming a professional documentarian. Outside of his Chris-chan series, he occasionally uploads videos about his other journey as a musician and selections of his songs.

    What YouTubers do you watch on a regular basis?-npz7rm5-png Ashens

    “Hello!"

    Stuart Ashen—usually known as Ashens—is probably the first YouTuber I became an active follower of! Yes, he's an OG, and I must apologise... there's a good chance he isn't for you! His style is very British. Most Americans just "don't get it" but he does actually have a fairly big American audience. You could call Ashens a comedian. You could call him many things. But first and foremost, he is a guy who reviews British tat placed on a brown sofa. "Where's the appeal in that?!", you ask. I don't know. It's just good.

    Poundland is probably the most popular British "dollar store" and Ashens is known for reviewing (that's one way to put it) their crap. This might be as simple as looking at crappy toys, or it could be a taste test of nasty food. (One time he tried an entire chicken stuffed into a can imported from America... yikes.) It's hard to explain why people watch his content. It's like a morbid curiosity. Outside of cheap tat antics he's pursued a few projects. In 2013 he released a feature-length film called Ashens and the Quest For The Game Child on Blu-ray and DVD. The full film can be watched here. Its sequel, Ashens and the Polybius Heist, releases this year.

    What YouTubers do you watch on a regular basis?-ohtobt4-png Slope's Game Room

    “We all have the ability to start a crowdfunding campaign; the ability to make a video and share our brilliant idea to the world! And although sometimes that works out pretty great... other times, not so much."

    Known as Slope, Daniel Ibbertson is a Sega fan with a plan: to create hundreds of "complete history" game videos, with other more miscellaneous content in-between. He is definitely my favourite YouTuber that I discovered in the past year. (Okay, truthfully it was right at the end of 2018 when I did.) With over seventy game history videos, each lasting around 20-40 minutes, there is so much great content to binge. Despite him being an avid Sega fan, these videos cater to fans of most formats and genres. That's only one slice of this pie.

    One of his most popular ongoing series is called KickScammers. I frigging love these. It's mostly about exploring the history of the most infamous of crowdfunding catastrophes, typically on Kickstarter as well as the other usual suspects like Indiegogo. Be it learning about a game series' rise to glory or a crowdfunding trainwreck, I never get bored when I watch Slope's videos.

    Sample




    That's enough for now. I become pretty comprehensive with my recommendations... clearly. Maybe you'll find something you'd like!
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    LOL, I forgot about Ashens. My husband (who is British) got me watching him. I unsubbed a while ago as I wasn't really interested enough in the content he was putting out at the time. I'll have to go back and sub to him again. Spice up my subscriptions. Anytime he ate the old/outdated food I'd nearly throw up in my mouth lol

    Compared to most of the above, I don't watch many who are a personality, so to speak. Most of who I watch don't have a particular character they play or a shtick, although I do like JonTron & PeanutButterGamer who are very much that type of thing.

    All-time favorites include:
    The Super Best Friends (defunct) - Listened to their podcast weekly for 5 years, watched thousands of episodes. Quite literally listened to them throughout every second of my free time & hour-long commute daily from age 19 - 24.



    Gaming Channels:
    SuperDerek RPGs - A mountain of quick, dry JRPG reviews.
    Soldier_1st Class - Final Fantasy news.
    Night Sky Prince - Final Fantasy news.
    Final Fantasy Union - FF discussions/reviews/character discourses.
    RedCoat - FF discussions/reviews/character discourses.
    YongYea - (mostly) unbiased game news source. Has a tendency to hop on popular topics and really milk them, however.
    Zeltik - Zelda
    Commonwealth Realm - Zelda/general Nintendo
    Happy Console Gamer - The dude is like 46, I love hearing this Boomer's stories from the late 80's/early-90's growing up as all the classic JRPGs were hitting the scene.
    SsethTzeentach - Mock game reviews


    Music:
    BitSymphony - Incredible (and faithful) re-creations of JRPG music.
    STEEZYASFUCK - Basically where the "lofi beats to relax/study to" crap comes from
    EDMS
    デーモンAstari - mumble rap/emo rap
    OSEAN WORLD - TRIPPY AS HELL
    Yuzion - Korean cutie



    Other:
    It'sAGundam - anti-SJW pretty much
    Mister Metokur - shitlord
    GenoSamuel 2.1 - Chris Chan Comprehensive History
    Count Dankula - anti-SJW
    Billiam - Okay, so this is my most basic-bitch subscription. I like the material he covers, but oh boy is he...the YouTube standard. Just look him up, you'll see.
    Donut Operator - ex-cop/SWAT oficer shares a lot of good insights. Does shooting breakdown videos & bodycam footage.
    Hickock45 - guns
    Forgotten weapons - RARE guns
    Whang! - Internet...stuff?
    Explaining Computers - Old British giga-Boomer who, well, Explains Computers. Each video is a new topic and he does a bang-up job.
    Beyond Creepy - UFO/Cryptid encounters
    penguinz0 - c'mon everyone knows him
    Internet Historian
    Nexpo - Formerly Nightmare Expo. Self-explanatory
    Night Mind - ARG/mystery coverage at a deeply-autistic level
    Kurosai - I don't know what this really is. A husky black dude voicing over anime girls.
    Top 5 Unknowns - mysteries/unsolved disappearances
    "Out of the ground, raze all greenery with flame! Fire2!"
