He is awesome. Very very awesome. As soon as I discovered him, I'm totally addicted to his videos. :D He's funny, and love his sense of humor! BROFIST.

Are you 5? "I love his 'sense of humour'" All he does is curse and scream into a mic! - Brobusky

2 VanossGaming VanossGaming

Got turned on to VG two years ago and have been watching since. He and his friends are hilarious and make it much better than those playing solo and providing commentary. I too really like how he doesn't show himself in his videos as I don't care what he looks like while playing or what his facial expressions are. Just a good group of dudes having fun playing together. He's also humble about his success and doesn't push for his viewers to "like" or "subscribe" like the majority of these "let's play" folks out there. He also does some great video editing work and it's gotten better and better over time. My only complaint is that he doesn't put out enough videos. It's a decent amount but I binge off his videos and also crave more. Keep up the good work. I also want to shoutout to his friends. They don't get the love they deserve and this channel wouldn't be as great as it is without them.

Came across his channel one day by accident, automatically fell in love with the humor of the Call of Duty videos. Reminded me of playing with my friends and all our good times and now he has moved on to computer gaming and the videos keep getting better and better. I haven't been able to find another gaming channel that I like because none compare to VanossGaming

I been watching his videos sense his first mw3 video and I enjoyed every video sense with a big laugh before I go to school been subscribed for long time

I LOVE Vanoss and his friends. They are so funny and definitely someone you want to be subscribed to.

3 markiplierGAME markiplierGAME

Mark is extremely funny and is very kind and generous because of his charity live streams. He doesn't pose for people and doesn't think his fans or subscribers are just numbers. Plus, he can actually finish a game, even if it is terrifying. Mark should totally be in the top tens. When I'm having a rough day, I watch his videos, then I'm in a fit of giggling. Even though he is not number one on the list, he is in my book.

Mark is a great person, I'm not the one of the first fans to watch his lets plays but I love how he comments about the game as a whole and keep his character open to all us fans. people say that he's getting like some other YouTubers where he's just doing silly voices and screams all the time. while its true that his scream and shouting frequency has increases over time. he doesn't just scream but actually shout out some fairly hilarious things from time to time.

And the random shouting... don't we all do so too? Like when I play games or watch/read things, I just feel like shouting out random stuff that don't really make sense. talking to myself is kinda like a hobby to me now.

I just think he's gotten more confident on front of the camera, like if I'm watching something by myself, I speak a whole load of random rubbish without a care, but with other people around me, I try to keep as quiet as possible. this is relate-able to a lot of people.

Also at the end of ...more

Great guy with a big heart and the kind of level head a gamer is expected to have. Go check him out if you haven't already.

Markilpier has the best gaming channel in YouTube. His funny gaming and funny face makes it more enjoyable. Some how his video keeps me watching it to the end. Where in other videos, I usually skips or click away.

4 RoosterTeeth RoosterTeeth

I think they are the best. Reason one. They are all friends having fun playing games. Two. They are more than just a letsplay channel. They also have a weekly podcast and a various info about games. Five facts, This is... , Achievment hunter weekly update. They even have their own site dedicated to having achievement checklists and forums. I watched pewdie before he was cool but now he feels like he sold out a bit. Yogscast are just plain stupid. I get so pissed off when I see them make retarded mistakes and wonder "oh what happened? Why did I just walk off a cliff" Roosterteeth isn"t great at miecraft but at least they are better than them.

Also the biggest part of rooster teeth is Red vs Blue which EVERYONE online has seen. Everybody has at least seen the first episode. Its even in halo. I have yet to seen a person/group from online make it into a major video game like Roosterteeth. They were featured in a documentary on discovery channel. They truly are the best

They have the best variety of videos, every day new content is being uploaded and the best of all is the Monday, Wednesday, and Friday Let's play. Never get tired of watching these guys laugh their ass off and the community is such a tear jerker. Just watch the video on how Red vs. Blue is started and how all the original members had to sacrifice to become what they are today. Pure AWESOME!

Red vs Blue, Rage Quit, Achievement hunter, FOTW, Achievement Horse, RT Shorts, how can you not love these dudes?

RoosterTeeth is arguably one of the best gaming channels for its variety and amount of content as well as the community. The company has several branches, each of which produce their own shows, including gameplay, podcasts, animation, and even game shows. Nearly anyone can find some show that they enjoy produced by the company. The community is extremely vast and welcoming. There's even a yearly expo hosted by RoosterTeeth! In addition, the channel is very modest. They ask for help only when necessary and don't go around flashing their success. They help other creators and promote interactions on their website. I can't express my appreciation for the channel enough. If you can, I'd really suggest giving their content a look.

5 OfficialNerdCubed

My favorite channel. He is very funny and edits some of his videos so it isn't boring. He is very under rated and deserves more views.

This fantastically humorous man is capable of beautifully editing videos, only swearing when it is appropriate, and having an overall very relateable personality. He is by far the single best YouTuber of all time. Ever.

Nerdcubed is my favourite YouTuber in the whole world! He is hilarious and just cool! I don't know why he is not in the top ten or even the top five. This guy deserves it all. He puts out videos daily which I love too. Let's make Nerdcubed higher here!

Nerdcubed one of the first YouTubers I've watched and one of the funniest gamers out there Dan is positive and funny especially with his Father #FatherAndSonDays

6 UberHaxorNova UberHaxorNova

He is hilarious. He is very down to earth and very funny and charismatic. He is fun to watch. His crazy personality and his hilarious freak outs are well worth the subscription. My favorite gaming channel.

Nova(James) was the guy that made me addicted to you tube gaming. He is funniest of all the creatures. I love most the creatures. I also watch Achievement hunter, ssohpkc, and other gamers, but he will always be my favorite!

Nova and sp00n are definitely my favorite of the Creatures. Why has Nova reached 1 million subscribers and none of the others have? Because Nova is just that cool and hilarious.

Love nova

7 CaptainSparklez

His music videos are the greatest! His most viewed video has around 45 MILLION views! That is incredible for a gaming channel and a lot more than any other gaming channel in history! He also has over a million loyal subscribers! Truly the best.

He never fails to keep me entertained, his music videos are very good and is something I'll recommend to anyone who is looking for a good parody. Also, his modded survival is the best, starting out as a simple survival map that risen to be the most popular thing on his channel. Which is something, because 2.8 million subscribers watches his videos. In other words, he's a very funny guy and I'll recommend it to anyone who likes a good laugh.

He is the best because he is never annoying, he is funny, all of his videos are great and he must be rank #1

CaptainSparklez is the best I couldn't believe that he would play mine craft story mode

8 Jacksepticeye Jacksepticeye

Funniest gaming videos I've ever seen.. Also he puts like 2 every day.. Also seems very humble.. I find him better than nerdcubed and pewdiepie.. Can't believe he's so low in the ratings... But that just might be because he's new... But he's definitely gonna rise above the rest... Because he's the bos...

Jack is one of my favourite YouTubers ever he always knows how to make you feel special, and when you watch him it's like you are play/watching a game with your best friend, he loves everyone one of his subscribers and treats us all the same he respects everyone of us, and he never takes anything for granted he never lets the fame of YouTube get to his head, no matter how many subscribers he has he is still always humble and down to earth, he communicates with his fans through social media and even does a series reading your comments where he answers his fans, he now has over 9 million subscribers and he definitely deserves a lot more but he is amazing he always speaks his mind and can make anyone happy no matter how bad their day is.

Jack is absolutely amazing. He's down to earth, never ungrateful for each and every fan, and hilarious. He interacts with his fans on YouTube, Twitter, and Tumblr! He opens fan gifts like it's Christmas, and takes each present to heart. He's so fun to watch, and I cannot watch a single one of his videos without laughing until I cry. He's simply amazing, and he'll definitely make his way up to the top ten.

Nice youtuber - RealDREWSkeleton

Simon and Lewis are the greatest. They have over 2 million subscribers and they get around 6k subscribers a day! They are hilarious and put a lot of effort into their videos. Deserve to be first.

You will die with laughter every day when subscribed to these guys. Their videos are not just funny but high quality and there range of other channels like sips, sjin and duncan are sure to keep you entertained for hours.

These guys are like the funniest people I've Evah seen! 2 Million thumbs up :D!

They are hot

10 SeaNanners

SeaNanners is the original. If you don't know who seananners is well, shame on you. He has over 1 million subscribers and was one of the first gamers on YouTube. He is still around and still has a ton of fans. Number 1 in my book.

The power of the grey shirts will compel you

He's the best person ever and should get a higher rating

11 machinima

THese guys just do it right.. The latest.
though I think IGN has a better game review and rating..
i personally haven't seen the machinima reviews

Wouldn't say Machinima as a whole, but Inside Gaming definitely.

I thought these guys were evil.

Machinima is crap, they treat their employees like crap and they are so vast that you can't really say machinima because it includes too many channels. plus you didn't capitalize it, machinima is using gameplay to make videos shows or movies. Machinima is a dead, not a youtube channel, and contradictory to itself.

12 ChaoticMonki

Cry is one of the few youtubers I can bear watching anymore. His humour varies wildly, sometimes deadpan, sometimes crude but gentlemanly sounding at the same time. The funnies most definitely come from his ability to completely immerse himself in the game, resulting in bewilderment, tears, shouting 'I don't know what to do! ' in a voice befitting a scared eight year old and immobilizing laughter. (WHY DIDN'T YOU JUST GO TO BED RUSS? ) Just a nice guy with a great personality. And his voice is scarily soothing. S'pretty good. - Therru11

Can't even believe that he isn't higher on the list. He updates every day of the week (except Sunday), his voice is godly, he is absolutely amazing at games and he manages to keep in touch with his fans as well.

Cry is amazing. Not only does he play games, he reads creepy pastas and other stories with his chilling, yet sexy voice. He does a live stream with his friends every saturday at 11pm, and he's best friends with Pewdiepie. They're even shipped together. Best of all, Cry is the most mysterious man you'll ever know. He refuses to show his face or reveal any information about his self. He claims that he wants people to like him for his content, and not his face. Cry manages to woo fangirls without even showing his looks, but simply by speaking with that amazing voice of his. Cryaotic's sense of humor is outstanding. I highly recommend watching his videos

I love cry

13 Chuggaaconroy Chuggaaconroy

This guy can make you laugh so much sometimes. Unlike some of the Lper's. His score on the cuss-o-meter is almost never on his channel which makes his channel E for everyone. There are a lot of memorable moments and how charismatic he is just makes him one of the best lpers I've ever seen.

Better than Pewdiepie all said people. All said.

Seriously he deserves to be number 1 due to all of his hard work! So much editting, info and dedication he puts in all of his videos! He doesn't make videos for money he makes them so we can watch them and enjoy them! Now this is a true Let's Player!

Chuggaaconroy isn't like all of the popular Let's Players on YouTube. He doesn't play the most popular games, he doesn't use annoying facecams on his videos, and he doesn't do annoying jokes or yells like the other Let's Players, most of the time. He was one of the main pioneers of Let's Playing on YouTube and, for a while, was the most popular LPer on YouTube. His Let's Plays mix informative and useful commentary with humor that will make you laugh so much, you can't even breathe. Throw in a couple of epic fails and some epic wins, and you have possibly the best gaming channel on YouTube.

14 TobyGames

This gut is all around funny. I love watching his Games, his Lazy Vlogs, and his other videos that he post out. Toby has a really great sense of humor and that makes you want to watch his videos at places you shouldn't; like school for one. If you haven't seen his channel or any of his channels you should give him a look see, you'll love him.

Toby is one of the funniest guys on YouTube! He can take any serious game and make it totally hilarious. The way he tells fake little stories while he is playing is so funny!

Toby is the funniest YouTuber I have ever seen. When I first saw him on Happy Wheels I got addicted to his videos and started watching more of his videos. For people who don't know who Tobuscus is, you guys should really check out his videos.

Hello once again Audience when we left off I died.
LOL so funny.

15 JamesNintendoNerd

James Rolfe AKA AVGN is amazing, he does his nerd reviews, mini movies, gameplay videos, board game videos, and so much more. James is actually a huge inspiration to me with being a collector and a director, I even have his autograph displayed on my game shelf (yeah he is that awesome). James is one of the best directors and gamer I have ever seen, heck he even has a full featured film AND his own video game coming out hopefully within the next year, long story short "he's gonna take you back to the past"...

While PewDiePie is having a good time at number one on this list, the Angry Video Game Nerd is just sitting at number 20. Most people don't really think of this channel as a good gaming channel, but the Angry Video Game Nerd will be more hilarious and more creative than the people higher on the list will ever be.

Give him guys the spot he deserves! He's one of the pioneers of the gaming channels on YouTube

AVGN is not only my favorite player but also the best videos on all youtube...his directing chops really shine through on all his videos.

16 GameGrumps

It's about friends having fun. It's not about speed-runs or exploiting secrets or doing every possible task in a game, but when these good friends get together, jokes will be made and you're going to have a good time. Watch it as improv comedy. Don't watch it as an example of how to play games. They will not read manuals and rarely on-screen instructions, so they'll get stuck. They'll do it wrong, sometimes. But be honest, we've all been there, and this is more about the experience than just the game.

I would usually say JonTron's better, but this is basically JonTron everyday. People criticize them for being a Le's Play channel, but they get it right. Besides, they said they don't want to be called a Let's Play channel. They should be at least 3 and PDP shouldn't even be on the list.

I have no clue why this isn't higher, the Game Grumps, along with Seananners are my favorite gaming channels on YouTube. However, I know that people font have the same opinions, so instead of gushing about the channel, I will go into specifics and give my two cents. The thing I love about Game Grumps is that it's not necessarily about the game. Sure, we've seen them get emotionally invested in a game, to a point where they are screaming at the screen, and Arin punches a wall. However, Game Grumps, Steam Train, and all the other shows that have been on their channel have a very Seinfeld-esque aspect to them. This is the gaming channel about nothing. They will often not talk about the game, and ramble on about what they did that day, and any of their hilarious improv commentary and hilarious voices. They let themselves be themselves, which can often lead to some really racy stuff, which some other YouTubers may try to reserve, but that's what's so likable about them, their honest. If ...more

The "comedian's comedian" of let's players. The big names like Markiplier and JackSepticEye are huge fans (and friends) of the Grumps, and that speaks volumes in and of itself.

17 SkyDoesMinecraft

SKY ARMY! Does Minecraft mod showcases and gets a TON of views on them! A very fast growing channel that managed to reach 1.3 million subscribers in less than a year!

This guy is just hilarious, him and his friends make a game like Minecraft extremely hilarious because of the jokes they like to say. But the most hilarious thing about SkyDoesMinecraft is his laugh, it literally sound like a cross between a monkey and a parrot

How come no one put Adam on this list? Go butter!

18 TheSyndicateProject TheSyndicateProject

He is the most entertaining out of all of them and he is a complete BEAST at Call of Duty and Minecraft. I enjoy all of his videos and he well deserves all his fame and subscribers.

Syndicate puts a lot of effort into his videos and has a very entertaining and upbeat attitude. His Mincraft Project series is amazing but I was blown away by his Animated Minecraft Series!

Are my eyes lying to me Syndicate is 7th he deserves to be 1st by far due to his dedication and frequency of his videos

He has awesome content and gives his fans what they want

19 Jontron Jontron Jonathan Aryan "Jon" Jafari, best known by his internet pseudonym JonTron, is an American comedian, reviewer, and internet personality.

This so far, is one of the best gaming channels out there. But with his game reviews, top 10's, and his other gaming channel Game Grumps, he is certainly one of the greats along with the others many people acknowledge. Personality wise, he is a wild and fun guy to be with, and not fun with IT'S JONTRON :D:, No, he's just the guy who would be cool to hang out with in real life. Just look at Game Grumps.

His wonderful works are very rare to come by. They require much patience and discipline for anyone to admire them.

But when he releases a video, it's heavenly.

Why is Jontron at 42! He is a lot funnier than PewDiePie and should be #1. He has tons of hilarious videos like Goosebumps and Banjo-Kazooie Nuts and Bolts.

He is good

20 DashieGames DashieGames

Dashie should be way higher than the 44th spot. Don't take my comment for proof. Go and watch his channel. He also has two other channels full of hilarious content. He's his own person. Not concerned with what others are doing in their gaming videos and also tries to steer away from what they are doing because he doesn't want to be one of those guys. But as I said... Just go to his channel and you'll see that he deserves a higher ranking.

DashieGames is not the best gamer around, but his humor in his gaming videos are funny and enjoyable compared to Pewdiepie's annoying way of yelling and screaming.

This is a guy that definitely deserves more attention. His high energy, loud voice, and constant dirty mouth will keep your eyes glued to the screen and your stomach hurting from laughter.

Mai boy 22 and do real! Number 1
