The Most Subscribed To YouTube Channels in Gaming

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 20 years, you’ll know that YouTube is an enormously popular video-sharing platform. Launched in 2005 it has grown to be the place for video sharing across the internet, boasting 2.1 billion active monthly users and 122 million users per day.

Content-wise you can find everything you need on YouTube, prank videos, family, travel, house tours and, of course, all types of gaming videos. If you’re looking for a video, YouTube is the place to find it.

YouTube also has a unique position where it has no real competitors in the gaming video space. Twitch, the video game streaming site, is another titan of the industry however, most users don’t go to Twitch for dedicated gaming videos. Live streaming allows the viewers to interact in real-time meaning audiences will go to Twitch for this “real life” experience rather than curated videos you would find on YouTube. 

Whereas a viewer would go to YouTube to relive gaming moments in the form of ~10 minutes edited videos or more long-form content such as playthroughs and walkthroughs. YouTube is also used as a place to find specific gaming information such as how to unlock a hidden achievement. The gaming community, like the marketing community, is always looking for the next big creators so we’ve curated a list of the most subscribed YouTube channels in the gaming for you below:
