Top YouTube Gamers you should subscribe to

Ever feel like not watching TV? A 30-minute or hour long program isn’t really what you are looking for? Watching YouTube videos is a great alternative as we are in an age where videos with the least amount of time gets the most amount of views.YouTubeGaming2As an avid gamer, I spend hours a week watching YouTube videos posted by other gamers. Whether if it’s just for entertainment or scouting to see if a game is worth buying, there are gamers who consistently post binge-worthy content to YouTube. So if you like video games, this is something you might be interested in.

In no particular order, here are some gamers to watch on YouTube:

Agent 00 (Over 600,000 subscribers)

A Canadian YouTuber known for his NBA 2K gameplay, Agent 00’s posts usually contain content from MyPark/Playground and Pro-Am. Additionally, he frequently posts his thoughts regarding game updates or yelling about is disapproval of NBA2K games even though he knows he’ll get the newest game when it comes out. Either way, his posts are very entertaining and it’s fun watching is gameplay and the commentary he adds to it.

StoneMountain64 (Over 1,500,000 subscribers)

I just recently started watching StoneMountain’s videos and it is by far the funniest I have ever seen. Some of his content involves trolling other players and the way he does it is so creative as he remains in character. I began watching his YOLO (Yankee, Oscar, Lima, Oscar) on the Battlegrounds videos and realized he did this for other games such as Fortnite, Battlefield, and Division so his videos have definitely kept me busy lately.

Chris Smoove (Over 3,900,000 subscribers)

His commentary is just flat out amazing. He now primarily posts sports gameplay such as UFC, NBA2K, and Madden as he uploads gameplay of him facing off against other players or the AI. He first became notable because of his Call of Duty gameplay as he would troll random players he faced off against. I mostly watch his videos for his commentary. He truly has a voice for Broadcast Television or Radio.

theRadbrad (Over 8,000,00 subscribers)

He is actually the first person I watched play video games on YouTube. This was back when I owned an Xbox 360, and The Last of Us came out for the PS3. I was so disappointed I couldn’t play the game but watching his videos became a good silver lining. theRadBrad posts story gameplay from various games such as the Far Cry series, Assassin’s Creed, Monster Hunter World, and much more. It’s been great to see his channel grow over the years, and I typically check it whenever I am interested in buying a new game and looking to see what the gameplay looks like.

I know the ones I listed aren’t the most popular gamers out there, but the YouTubers above typically play the games I am interested in and, above all, they make it look like so much fun.


What are your thoughts? Is there anyone you would add to this list?

Date night or Game night: Video Games that will make you want to stay in over going out


Ever had one of those, it’s a Saturday night and I have nothing to do, moments? OkCupid is slow or not enough money to take your girl (or guy) out? As someone who used to have this issue, I know the feeling of trying to salvage a Friday or Saturday when you are at home and looking for ways to have fun. Below are some binge worthy games if you are looking to have fun and interact with people at the same time.

Jack Box Party Pack 3


Jack Box is a game best played when you have a group of people over and looking to have some fun. All you need is the console to load the game, and then instructions will be  displayed to have up to 8 players enter the room code on his or her phone to start playing. That right’s, instead of a controller, all that will be required to play is a phone. There is an online component to it too if you want to play with others virtually instead of having everyone at the same location.

Like most games, to win in Jack Box to have to get the highest score. To start, each player is given a prompt which appears on their phone, and each player is given a time limit to enter a reply or draw as necessary. The game collects all replies and, often times, gives players the opportunity to vote for the best answer (excluding their own answer). The game as severals rounds and at the end of each round there is a ranking with each player’s score. There are several different modes you can play: Quiplash 2, Trivia Murder Party, Guesspionage, Tee K.O., and Fakin’ It.

NBA 2K18: Run the Neighborhood


This fantastic new feature in NBA 2K18 can allow for endless hours of fun as you are playing with your friends online or if you are looking to make friends online. As you log several hours upgrading your created player, you are also giving him unique attributes, hairstyles, and buying or designing his clothing.

From experience, the better your player is the more willing others will be to pass you the ball. The PlayGround and Pro-Am are the most popular when it comes to playing with others online. The former is what most seasoned players remember as MyPark. Your player is in a playground with several basketball courts, amongst at least a few dozen players looking to prove who is the best at the park. There are opportunities to play 2v2 or 3v3 and winner stays on the court. I play with two others, and we typically hop on a call and communicate with each other as we are destroying everyone else on the court.

Pro-Am is just as fun but it is 5v5 games. If you don’t have a team you can play as a Walk-on where you will be playing with random players you don’t know. I’ve played this mode but you sometimes get a point guard who doesn’t pass the ball and takes a ton of bad shots. That alone really just annoys me so I try to stay away from this mode. However, if you know 4 others who are looking to play, you can create your own team, your own arena and jerseys, and keep track of your team’s win-loss record. Definitely a fun activity you can do with some friends.

Rocket League


This might be a game most enjoyable if you’re knocking back some beers and with some friends as you play. Rocket League is a popular, online-based game where each player controls a car and the aim is to hit the ball into the goal. Yes, it’s soccer but with cars. No matter a persons thoughts on the game, I bought it for $5 and now the price is $29.99. So clearly the game is doing well. Matches can be played from as many as 1v1 to 4v4, and you can play with friends on the same console or with each other online or you can play with random players online.

The game is definitely worth a shot and will make anyone with a competitive bone in their body quickly addicted. Here is a video of my favorite Rocket League YouTubers as they play the game.

Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds


Imagine you parachuted onto an island all with 99 other people, and you had to scavenge for weapons and supplies, and survive until you’re the last person alive. No this is not The Hunger Games, this is PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. You can enter a match solo or with a team of up to four people as you face other players online in a last man standing death match.

As the match progresses, the playable area of the map shrinks causing players outside of the safe area to take significant damage so all players have to converge into the safe area which typically calls for an epic showdown. This is definitely a game that will require strategy if you want to be the last person standing and can also be a lot of fun if you are playing with friends.

Destiny 2


Date night or not, Destiny 2 is worth the buy. This online-only multi-player game will likely be in the mix for game of the year. You get to choose from three different classes: Hunters, Warlocks, and Titans. As your character progresses, you can obtain better equipment and upgrade attributes. In various modes, you work with other players to kill alien races or you can go head-to-head against other players to test your skills in combat. If you’re interested in role-playing and MMO games, this is the game for you. And this game is definitely most fun when you are in party chat with your online buddies. I plan on getting it this week so I can binge play it on my day off from work this Friday.

Let me know your thoughts. Are there games that should be added to this list? Any that you would take off?

Till next time…
