There are many YouTube channels focused on gaming. Actually, there are so many that the Xbox One has an achievement in the YouTube app for watching them. With so many options, it’s easy for channels to get lost, or for users never to find them.
Did You Know Gaming?
This YouTube gaming channel dives into the history of various video game franchises and titles. Included in the videos is what sort of issues emerged during the game creation process, localization issues, interesting facts and alternate titles. Every episode is narrated by a different YouTube channels host which results in an interesting concept.
This YouTube gaming channel was created by James Rolfe and initially began on its own website with the Angry Video Game Nerd. James’ nerd persona critiques older video games and consoles while becoming angrier about the gameplay.
Later, more shows were added such as Board Games! and James and Mike Mondays in which the pair play a game in an unscripted way. But be warned – a lot of it is NSFW because of foul language.
For this YouTube gaming channel, games trailers also feature a deep-voiced narrator informing viewers on exactly what standard game trailers don’t, such as DLC, bugs, flawed plots and anything else that annoys gamers. This YouTube gaming channel is sure to get a laugh out of you.
Another history YouTube gaming channel, Norman Caruso takes an in-depth look at different gaming companies and games. The information and trivia involved in the Gaming Historian videos includes founders, company backgrounds, and more.
This YouTube gaming channel is slightly different to other channels on this list because it is not only centred on video games. It is a channel ranging from celebrities to video games to movies.
Another comedy review YouTube gaming channel, JonTron does not only look at all kinds of video games, but a few other items as well. His viewpoint is also skit-based, but with higher production values than Cinemassacre. Although it does not contain as much foul language, JonTron is capable of being totally off balance, which is why we love him.
