The Best Big YouTubers.

As a response to the The Worst Big YouTubers-thread, I decided to kick a discussion going the other way into life. Now, I'm fairly sure that there's several, might even be hundreds of threads like this from before. But this is now. And also, on a completely unrelated note, I have been idle from The Forums here for over a year, so I need to get my shit together, and my activity up again.

So, who/what do YOU think is the best YouTubers out there? I won't judge you, so be honest. If you like RayWilliamJohnson, no one will lynch you for it[1].

My favourite YouTubers include:
- HuskyStarcraft: Because he's quite the StarCraft 2 commentator. Entertaining and humorous, especially when you're an avid StarCraft player.
- Day9: same reason as above.
- DailyGrace: Because she is probably the most awkward human being on this planet, and she looks like and behaves like one of my best friends. They're both equally awkward and adorable, so that's why I love them I suppose.
- KassemG: "California on", nuff said.
- NicePeter and ERBH: Epic Rap Battles of History and NicePeter are equally fantastic channels. Discovered NicePeter through KassemG and their Street Music videos. Also, watch the Obama vs Romney Rap Battle. It's brilliant!
- PistolShrimps: Humorous channel known for spoofs and parodies of known films etc. Most known for their Trolling Saruman video. They've got a lot of high quality content, and they're from the same place as me here in Norway.
- Tobuscus: Over the top, sometimes very random and what-inducing, but overall funny and original due to his apparent madness. If you watch too many videos at once, you might grow tired though. His alternate channel, CuteWinFail is also something to check out, as I love them.

That's mine. What's yours?

[1] I think

I'm a big fan of those dang ass game ass grumps as of late; it's the dream team that nobody saw coming!

Big fan of Matt and Pat from Two Best Friends Play.

I only subscribe to two channels. Daily Grace because she's frequently hilarious and reminds me so much of my cousin, and Sykkuno because of his skill at teaching me how to suck less at League of Legends with constant good nature and a massive surplus of excitement. I don't know what counts as a "big" youtuber, but these two are my definite favorites.

Freddie Wong.

Yeah, I know, his videos are silly and usually redundant, but they're high quality, and for the most part, really fun. Also, it's nice to see these guys stay up until 5 AM editing in post-production to get their effects right and getting a lot of views as opposed to iJustine fumbling her way through Portal and getting hits off of recognition for...dancing in Apple stores?

As a side note, a lot of people didn't like Video Game High School's uneven tone and lame dialogue even with the admittedly top notch production quality, but I kind of thought of it as endearing and charming. I think they're going to improve upon the show's concept in the 2nd season that they're shooting currently.

What this guy said. GameGrumps is the first time I've EVER been able to watch a gameplay commentary from start to finish and still be entertained. No one else has done that for me.

Also, I kinda like TheAmazingAtheist. Yeah, he's said and done some stupid shit, but he learns from it and improves himself and his act because of it. He generally makes good points about religion, politics, and other shit, and his podcasts with Howard Bloom are really insightful. I really wish he'd do more of those.

I like TotalBiscuit. Is he a Big Youtuber? I don't know, if so him if not I don't think anyone.

If you know of Freddie W, I take it you've seen Corridor Digitals stuff too?

Oh yeah, they're pretty awesome too. I didn't mention them because I haven't had enough time to get through any of the stuff they made beyond very recently.

I have a few youtubers I truly enjoy:
For one, I like The Amazing Atheist, not because I agree with him on every single thing he has said or done, but because he is amusing and sometimes also thought provoking.
I enjoy ooJLEoo's work, especially the "Gentleman's"-series.
I like Freddie Wong.
And I also like Epic Meal Time.

The biggest YouTubers I watch are GophersVids (almost 50,000 subs and over 12 mil views) and PrinceofMacedon (75,000+ subs and 46 mil views). Would they count as "big YouTubers"?

I enjoy watching Vash12349 and the Radbrad's videos. I am watching Radbrad's Cry of Fear walkthrough as I am typing, and I must say I am enjoying it immensely.

I like the fact they have a second channel, where they post making-of videos, as well as some interesting stuff about the gear they use. I saw a video of the Corridor Digital guys playing a LAN session of Farming Simulator, it was bloody hilarious. FreddieW was there too!

Jacksfilms! Awesome stuff. Their "Your Grammar Sucks" series is hilarious.

ERB of course. Do I need to explain?

Do we count Rooster Teeth?

JWittz is pretty awesome, especially his... everything.
He started of making pokemon card game videos but then moved onto other pokemon stuff and now he does gaming in general.
You can't beat his Spelunky play through.


He's getting more and more subscribers these days so I like to call him big.
Though his biggest channel only had about 130000 subscribers.

Seeing as how Day9 and Husky have been mentioned, gonna have to give dat dere shout out to the fine bouses of LifesAGlitchTV, NovaWar and MaximusBlack! Lower league SC2 commentary like you've probably never heard before.

Also, TotalBiscuit. Because TotalBiscuit.

-Retsupurae are my favourite channel at the moment; I think I've watched most of their stuff at least twice.
-Achievement Hunter are also brilliant, but I'm way beyond on all their content.
-LtMkilla better known as the guy from Rage Quit at AH is the only LP'er I ever watch.
-Egoraptor's Sequelitis series is one of the best things I've ever seen, but sadly he never updates his channel since starting Game Grumps which I'm not a huge fan of.
-Oh, and Jaboody Dubs is brilliant too, although I've not checked out the channel in a while.

I think Total Biscuit is the only big YouTuber I watch regularly. I'm aware of the work of a few of those mentioned above, but don't really follow them.

Wait are Yogscast big? Not sure but I dip into and out of their stuff fairly often.

FreddieW and CorridorDigital
Totalbiscuit
Criken. Not too sure he counts, but he's got over 200k subscribers and gets mentioned on Kotaku all the time. So I think he should.
331Erock. That mans metal covers are the shit.

They're the most watched British YouTube channel, and second-most subscribed after One Direction.

As for me, I watch the YogsCast often, Total Biscuit when he has something relevant (ie not Content Patch) on, and once in a while I'll catch up on Captain Sparkles.

I'm a huge fan of Achievement Hunter/Rooster Teeth, the only 30+ minute let's plays that I'll watch are their minecraft ones. Also a fan of videogamedunkey and penguinz0 for their game commentaries. Froggy Fresh is legitimately my favorite rapper, cuz the character has progressed so far since he started as krispy kreme, and its all so "clean"

Game grumps for the motherfucking win.

Jon and Arin are so damn funny.

I tend to keep updated on Acheivement Hunter's "Let's Play Minecraft" series.

Other than that, the biggest YouTuber I watch is either Boy in a Band (93K subs, 19mil views,) or Dan Bull (182K subs, 37mil views.)

EDIT: Must not forget Lindsey Sirling. Definitely watch Lindsey Stirling.

I find Bro Team to be quite enjoyable especially since he is a pretty nice guy for a person who yells at video games for a living.

I also subscribe to a bunch of random channels which upload gaming related stuff varying from gameplay to mocking the culture which is starting to surround video games.

I'm not sure any of these are considered BIG, but:

TheAmazingAtheist
Psychicpebbles
LazyPillow
Did You Know Gaming?
Ashens
ADoseofBuckley

I like to watch anything these guys put out.

Charles St. Michael Became famous for his "It Doesn't Get Better" video which he warns bullied gay high school kids that they should take martial arts and don't be afraid to use it. You'd be surprised how many people get pissed when you suggest that people should fight back against their harassers. He isn't afraid to state his opinions, and stand behind them, even if they aren't popular ones.

The Yoggscast While I don't watch Let's Play video because... I'd rather play video games than watch someone else play them. Even if the people playing them are hilarious. But my girlfriend is down right obsessed with these guys and does fan art of them all the time.

Game Grumps Again, a let's play group my girlfriend is a raging fan girl over. I've watched them a couple times. They're pretty funny.

I was all set and ready to dislike Epic Rap Battles from their view counts alone, but man... those are some high-quality videos. Costumes, accents, green screen... not to mention funny, and the best part is that they almost always give both sides some good lines against the other.

I can't recommend 4PlayerPodcast anymore. It's really too bad, but I honestly don't find it entertaining the vast majority of the time anymore... and that's just watching the Highlights! Watching the actual feed drags a lot more.

No, my true Youtube love is Two Best Friends Play (or better yet, Super Best Friends, which includes Woolie and sometimes guests). They were a little more gimmicky at the start, with more editing and playing up their respective personalities, but it turned out to not be necessary. They ALREADY act like that, and they're already hilarious (although of course the played-up episodes are hilarious too, see Vampire Rain and Shadows of The Damned). The way they talk to each other, their in-jokes, it all makes you feel like you're in the room with them, and you have fun. Their full playthroughs are just as much fun for me, if not more so, than their condensed, for-the-masses Machinima series. Matt and Pat, I hope you read the Escapist too!

Aaaaand... hm, Gabriel Iglesias? He's an amazing stand-up comedian, although I never liked DAMN TV... and of course I should think we all love anything by James Rolfe (the AVGN). Although, I usually watch his website, not on Youtube.

Clearly the best thing on youtube is you guys.

Criken. Not too sure he counts, but he's got over 200k subscribers and gets mentioned on Kotaku all the time. So I think he should.

Criken should be more popular. Without comparing him to some OTHER Youtuber who thrives on video games and has a comparatively high voice, Criken and his allies are just funny without trying too hard (other Youtuber take note). They're just screwing around and having fun in their favourite games. I mean, that's all I ever wanted. No forced jokes or played-up reactions. It's amazing what he's done for comedy through creative use of subtitles alone!

Not so huge on Jwittz. I enjoyed some of his videos, but he reminds me of some other people with AS I've met. Doesn't know when we get the point and he can stop talking now. Repeats himself a lot too. I could see myself watching again with some better editing on his part.

-Angry Video Game Nerd -- This guy never gets old to me.
-DashieXP -- This guy is hilarious. To me, anyway.
-RoosterTeeth: Rage Quit -- He's so over the top. In a good way.
-psychicpebbles -- His videos are funny AND true.
-Ukinojoe -- Another funny animator.
-GameGrumps -- Egoraptor and JonTron play video games together. What more could you want?

I'm not sure if they count as big to Youtube, but TeamFourStar and their Dragon Ball Z Abridged videos are fantastic, and hit millions of views each time.

Right on all counts. Nice to know there's someone else on this site who knows who Criken.

Ye gods, how could I have forgotten those magnificent bastards?!?

I think the phrase "Big Youtuber" is a bit vague at the best of times, but I'd say TB counts, if only to agree with you. It helped that I first heard about him from his Warhammer 40k stuff, for which we both make a noise roughly equivalent to a chainsword hitting power armour. I know a fair few people that don't like him just because they don't agree. So yeah, deffo TotalBiscuit.

Also, it may be ridiculous, but I really enjoy watching Epic Meal Time. I can definitely see why people wouldn't enjoy it, but the OTT nature really appeals to me. I totally wish Muscles Glasses was my homeboy.

On roughly the same principles I also really like My Drunk Kitchen. Yeah it's no advancement on human civilisation, but the silliness makes me laugh for a few minutes, which is all I really want out of my youtube entertainment.

Jacksfilms...for the love of God Jacksfilms. He is amazing. The Your Grammar Sucks series is genius and all his other parodies are hilarious. Also, Tobuscus is also in some of his videos.

ERB. The Epic Rap Battles are just genius and that's all I'm gonna say about that.

Not much of a YouTube person but there are a couple I've actually subscribed to...

Selene8056 does a really nice job combining rock music with video game animations.

FreddeGredde is a really good musician/ vocalist.
