The Worst Big Youtubers

This entire thread is suffering from a lack of understanding of subjectivity. I feel that if someone sets out with the goal of entertaining people, and a large amount of people are entertained, they have suceeded. If someone attracts massive amounts of devoted fans, they are good at what they do. Mabey you don't like them but that is all about your personal tastes. Personally I really like Tobuscus, find PewDiePie passable, and don't like Ijustine... that doesn't make any of them worse or better, thats simply what I personally find entertaining.

On the Amazing Atheist, he makes good points often enough that I will stay subscribed to him, and watch most of what he puts out, though I have also relagated him to the pile of scumbag for insulting people in responses... but usually the non ad hom points are good enough for me to watch, and I agree with some of what he has to say.

I may look like a hypocrite for saying this (as I did just shit on a popular Youtuber), but you're absolutely right.

Carrots_macduff:
what do you expect from the biggest ever purveyor of pointless cat videos and fail compilations? most people dont look for intellectually stimulating entertainment on youtube and understandably so, but that doesnt mean there isnt any to be found.

oh yeah and all that about opinions and assholes too

He sold out, and now his channel's dead. All he has now are 3 TERRIBLE movies and a pocketful of regrets. HAPPY END.

Does anyone have any thoughts on CaptainSparklez? He's not funny, but he's entertaining, talented and overally harmless.

OT: Yeah, yeah, the usual. RWJ, Fred (who sold out, because he's a complete idiot.), tobuscus, SkydoesMinecraft (I've subbed him for the mods and the chuckles i get out of him, but his squid thing recently has been just OBNOXIOUS.)

A Homeless Pie:
I used to watch Tobuscus all the time but now he's sold his sold to youtube he's become boring. RWJ also sucks. KSI is my favorite youtuber

I totally agree, I liked his earlier stuff but now most of it annoys me. Either he dumbed his stuff down or I got sick of his style of dumbed down comedy, I'm not sure which.

I have nasty suspicion I just genuinely like that kinda crap but I'm not bothered to go through his back catalog and verify how good he used to be.

Anyone with an absolutely disgusting hivemind fanbase and huge viewcounts on their videos that goes onto less-than-popular games/servers which I regular.
They could be not that bad of youtubers but their fanbase is just despicable. (Cough Yogscast)
Gmod servers flooded with 100x more 12 year olds than there already were... oh, how it makes me miss the Russians.

I understand that you may not care too much about vegetarianism, so allow me to attempt to translate it into an insult against gamers.
A video titled "Gamers FAIL" where this guy attacks gaming and makes it look like [insert a game you hate here] represents every game. And then starts praising movies and how they reflect our personalities and souls and stuff while gaming is just a waste of time.

Retsuprae. Go ahead and keep that claim to fame about Let's Play like some high school football achievement to your names, most of the Internet does not give a single shit (never heard of you) and you never had nor ever will have a sliver of the dignity, respect and talent of some top Let's Players on YT. Should just stay in your corner of the Internet at SomethingAwful where you're Gods among other bored, cynical, Internet-hating egomaniacs still living in 2006.

They're also not very good at what they do.

Cpu46:
Anyone who has a picture of their overreacting face shopped over over whatever they are going to talk about for 90% of their thumbnails

Roughly this.

Words cannot describe how badly YT needs an "avoid" list where channels simply disappear from all feeds and search results.

Okay, "subjectivity" is not an excuse for avoiding any and all criticism. If you were to post the same thing on a thread about Michael Bay or Twilight, you would get torn apart, because the fact of the matter is that some "subjective" things are just fucking terrible. Twilight lacks depth as a movie, is poorly acted, lacks decent writing, sends a terrible message to teenage girls, and just outright sucks ass. It may be "subjective," but that doesn't stop it from being terrible. That is how criticism as a whole works. Period.

I watch quite a lot different let's players and game reviewers. So many lets players take the highway and scream from top of their voice and curse a lot. When I was 18 I liked AVGN, now days I can't stand the guy anymore. Why must everyone scream? For me that is the biggest problem with any youtube personality.

It would be nice to see more softly-spoken presenters.
One reason why Yahtzee still works for me is his voice and very dry british sense of humor.

squidface:
I dunno about ones I don't like... Jenna Marbles was mentioned, her videos are ... just ... yeah. It's like "hey guys look at me i'm a pretty girl with opinions" kind of thing. And it's like she's trying to lecture us about her opinions, not really... share them.

One youtuber I DO like is the guy who makes the "how to" videos. C:

She strikes me as being a lot smarter than she looks, and that the bimbo thing is just her comedy shtick. She normally only talks and jokes about bimbo stuff, and even then, she's surprisingly erudite about the subject.

Xdeser2:
Meh, I Guess I'll ramble off the same list I always do:

Sxephil, RayWilliamJohnson, the Amazing Atheist, Pewdiepie, Tobuscus, Ijustine, KassemG and the like

IMO, their all either bandwagoning, Intolerant of others, Fakes, or just using stupid humor to shill, pander and get views. Usually some combination of all Four. However, Really to each their own, who am I to say that someones choice of channel is wrong when its just Opinion anyway?

Shout out to some GOOD channels though (not that some really need the help at all, just want to add some positivity): Quill18, OMFGCata, Damo2986, SapphirePhoenix08, and ElderGeekdotcom

I can agree with everyone of those except for KassemG. I'd say his content is still original and while though there is something predictable about him, I feel that the videos he create are not exactly bland and repetitive.

I have to say that I completely loathe Pewdiepie. Now, don't get me wrong, I am aware of the fact that people find him amusing and that there probably is an aspect to it that is funny, but I can't avoid wanting to hurt him every time I see his face. Maybe it's the unoriginal content, maybe it's every single stupid gimmick that they overuse, *cough* barrels *cough*, maybe I'm just unable to view anything he does in an unbiased way. I will for some reason never not hate him.

Berithil:
It's not just Youtube. All you need to do is look at cinema and television and you'll see the same thing. Why is it that Jersey Shore gets 7 (or is it 8?) seasons, and yet Firefly gets cancelled before they finish their first?

The same reason why rebooting the DC Universe with a Superman/WOnder Woman pairing (RRGH,Dang it,DC! Really?!)continue to make money and have a fanbase, while Frankenstein:Agent of S.H.A.D.E. and Wicked Powered are either cancelled or put on hiatus. It's a frakked up world,madam.

boots:
The Amazing Atheist, though that one's been kind of obvious ever since Redditgate.

Agreed. I don't particularly care if someone gets a lot of views for acting over-the-top annoying, but for his soapbox persona that guy's just offensive. .

Definitely TheAmazingAtheist and RWJ. The latter is uncreative and works off of other videos' success, and the former is a grade-A asshole.

While this is the case with all media, it does sting more now that it's happening in a free, uncontrolled environment. Bloody mankind. If a "The day the Earth stood still" scenario happened tomorrow then we'd inexorably be wiped out.

However, there is one person who's more of a waste of digital air than anyone else I've come across - and its Hannah Minx

I dont know if you can really call him big (at only 8641 subs), but Hardyt3kyoyo has bothered me for a while. I get theres only so many times you can do a pokemon video and keep it fresh, but the "greats" (if you want to call them that) Like haydunn, shofu, marriland,and i bleieve its chuggaconroy or something to that affect (havent actually watched his channel), as well as the smaller greats like Black Light Attack, all do something to keep them interesting. when i watch one of hardy's videos, its just boring. he talks and half the time is completely unsure of himself, makes a mistake he'll chastise someone else for, and more often than not uses an idea right after one of the bigger names does it themselves.

and after he started branching off into the car talk videos and that girl he makes obvious he wants you to believe theyre dating starting making videos at his push its just tiresome.

Other than that... pewdiepie is hard to listen to if youre not in the mood.

I dont know anyone after that really. other than the all encompassing VEVOinsertbandnamehere channels, but thats more against VEVO than the bands themselves for advertising in the way they do.

At least she looks better then PewDiePie, I mean her channel is softcore porn.

Pewdiepie. Has any one seen Game Grumps? Because I watch Game Grumps everyday to remind myself that people like Pewdiepie don't exist.
Tobuscus. You could have stayed a vlogger, but noooooooooo you want the views so badly so you call yourself a gamer. Nice act douchebag.
TheAmazingAtheist. I would have respect for you, your beliefs, and your good points if you didn't treat people like trash. Have fun been being treated like trash.
RWJ. Boring. Stale. Flat. Why Ray still gets views is a mystery to me.

Special good youtuber shout out:
Main Event TV aka He TV aka Event Status aka the youtuber with the Iron Respect.

It's the mentality of McDonalds. Nobody thinks McDonalds tastes incredible. Nobody praises them as a 5 star quality restaurant. People enjoy awe-inspiring, incredibly funny, thoughtful, and interesting things. But day to day (the majority of the time), they want something comfortable and simple. Something to just pass the time with. Something that is a little bland or normal. And so, they eat McDonalds, and they watch subpar youtubers.

For me, its not so much specific youtubers that I dislike, but rather, specific contents. Any sort of Let's Play that's gone on for 100+ episodes, Happy Wheels, Slender, Terraria, episodes are wastes of time IMO. The main problem is that they're all exactly the same. The same reactions to the same games. Nothing particularly enjoyable. Oh, and College Humor. That ship has sailed. They use to be funny, but now most of their comedies are Jake and Amir, sex jokes, and other juvenile shenanigans.

I think you make a really good point here. Some of these channels are downright terrible and perhaps deserves to be maligned. However many of the examples listed don't really reach those depths and have enough redeeming qualities that their popularity does not constitute proof that you have to be a slack jawed moron to get some entertainment from them.

Personally, I can't stand TotalBuscuit. Even worse is that people will bash a game just because he says it is bad without ever trying it, or even learning to think, for themselves. I've tried so many games people said were horrible, and they were rather fun.

Phillip DeFranco

I hate that guy, in fact that whole clique with that blonde comedian girl with the jugs, that bespectacled geek, bearded douche with hot wife, the lame Womens Hour show thing they have going really irritates me. But Phil, he's a cunt. He talks with that stuttering blogger edit crap, he values his own opinion over the news he's regurgitating more than the news itself. He's arrogant, and his attitude rubs off on his clique, making them insufferable. For example, blonde boobs comedian was always quite entertaining, funny videos, a good personality for youtube. I can't even remember the last time I watched one of her videos since she joined that clique.

So if I ruled YouTube, the following people...

Phil DeFucko
Lisa Something (jugs) who seems to think she's youtubes answer to Oprah.
Awkward specky geek dude who thinks he's funny.
Bearded douche and hot wife.

Would be put to death.

They'd better not ruin MissHannahMinx for me, or there will be bloodshed.
P.S. Don't be offended by the word Specky, I'm specky as well, only a specky can call another specky specky... just like only a ninja, can sneak up on another ninja.

I know many have mentioned PewDiePie, but oh man, he's the worst in my opinion.
I think he tries way too hard to be funny by screaming and doing stupid voices. I don't think it's "Felix" playing, it's "PewDiePie" playing. I like to see real reactions, and if your reaction is to do the voice of Consela from Family Guy, then we have a problem.
However, I don't hate him as a person. I respect how he really doesn't care about "Who is the best Youtuber" and stuff, but I have to compare his to two other Youtubers.

Nerd3 gives his full, honest opinion. He doesn't act, he just plays the game and speaks his mind, even if he is barmy.
UberHaxorNova is a nice middle ground. He's crazy, but he still plays the games as "him" and not anyone else.

I also greatly dislike Smosh. They are not funny. They are too loud and immature.

Yogscast I don't find funny, but I find them informative for their mod showcases.

Anyone with over 100 subscribers sucks! All they make is unoriginal, uninspired and annoying videos! Who on Earth would watch this crap?

I watch only the most obscure videos hence i am the most intellectual person in the world.

All joking aside i think that Smosh gets too much shit when compared to others. They're by no means great but their videos are at least watchable and some what high fidelity.

I loathe Tobuscus. His voice reminds of of the voice Adam Sandler uses when he's pretending to be retarded. The only good thing he's done was the dramatic song.

I don't 'hate' any YouTube channel really. If I dislike a video from a channel I just don't watch anymore of them. If I had to pick one it'd be Yogscast and even then I don't 'hate' them, they just aren't as funny as they used to be.

Since this became a sort of side-question, some channels I like are:

TotalHalibut/Biscuit): I don't always agree with him (sometimes far from it), but he's very entertaining, especially some of his WTF Is videos. Always excited to see a new video from him.

Cr1tiKal(Penquinz0): Some of the most retarded and stupid Gameplay & Commentaries I've ever seen...and it's hilarious. Anytime I feel sad or unhappy I marathon a couple of his videos and I feel better.

It appears PewDiePie has been sufficiently mangled. So, I'll move on to Game Grumps.

I get why people like it, but it grew very tired very quickly for me. It was at its best during the Goof Troop play. That was incredibly hilarious. Eventually it just became more and more inane. They say absolutely random, very rarely funny, things and then laugh for half the video at how funny they are while taking something already unfunny and humping it into submission. It's a great friendship, but not a great viewing experience.

I think the main reason I dislike it these days is I view it as a detractor of two of my favourite "internet celebrities" when separate. JonTron and Egoraptor are fucking funny doing their own stuff, and Jon has posted one video since doing GG and Arin none. They claim it's not because of it, but it's hard to not make that connection.

Since everyone else is doing it, my favourite Youtubers are Grace Helbig, Hannah Hart, Roosterteeth and RhettAndLink.

Assassin Xaero:

May I ask for exemples? I seen several of TotalBiscoit's Wtf is... and altought I seen he not liking a game for not being his thing, I yet to see he bash a game for no good reason.

OT: Fred... I decided to try to watch something of him after watching a review of his movie to see if was truly that bad...
Now I am officialy a mass murderer. They are more happy now they don't exist in a world were Fred is allowed to exist. Yes, I will make everyone more happy...

Only page I can think of is iJustine, she is bad at games and doesn't have interesting or funny commentary.
All the other ones listed on this I either don't watch or at least enjoy them.

For the 50th time, Pewdiepie. He isn't "the worst" -- he's just incredibly annoying. But hey, he keeps his fans (mostly of 13-16 year olds) happy, so it's whatever.

Sir Thomas Sean Connery:

Plus, he took the time to write a formal apology.

That is what you call a formal apology? HA!

All I have to say is this. FRED. That kid needs to eat a hand grenade.

It's an apology.

He wrote it.

He went out of his way to write it.

Good enough for me.

Why all the Pewdiepie hate? He is a genuine gamer, he plays (in my opinion) many good games and not just horror anymore. He does his own thing. Just don't subscribe to him if you don't like him. He is a real gamer, cares about his fans and do charity events and such. He is just a good guy playing games for a living with his own style, and he is not fake, which iJustine and the likes are. Those are the one you should hate on. His fans can be real asshats sometimes though.
