Best Youtubers

The Top Ten

1 PewDiePie PewDiePie Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, better known by his online alias PewDiePie, is a Swedish web-based comedian and video producer, best known for his Let's Play commentaries and vlogs on YouTube. He is known for being the most subscribed-to YouTuber on the website, earning over 50 million subs.

Genuinely, I think that aside all the swear words and the controversies that is surrounding him, he is pure at heart. His internal character is One of the best, he is extremely kind and generous. Most people mistake him to be a bad person just because he is swearing a lot, but if you watch his videos daily, you will understand that he is a good person. He is one of the few people in YouTube who actually has common sense, and he also understands the problems and fears of other people, and their internal character as well. He knows how to act in front of children and adults, and behaves accordingly. He is also one of the few people on YouTube who, if did a mistake, admits that he did a mistake, regrets it, and genuinely apologizes. He also became more and more mature now, and nowadays he just doesn't game all the time, but also makes some comedy, gives advices for new YouTubers, etc.. Shortly, he doesn't put on an act in front of the camera, but just stays as the person who he is. It ...more

Pewdiepie is just a good person. I honestly think that, deep in my heart. None of his videos feels fake or forced; when he's scared he seems genuinely scared, when he's mad he seems genuinely mad, and when he's having a blast, you can tell he's having a blast. A lot of people may ask "What's so special about a guy yelling at a video game and recording it? " My response: Don't tell me you never yelled at a video game while playing it.

What a schmuck! I would have agreed with this a year or two ago, and I understand that this list may not have been visited in awhile, but come on! All he does now is force out laughs, promote merchandise, make fun of cringey kids, and rant about everything wrong with the internet. He hasn't played an actual game in months. If anything, Mark should be in front, as he is both funnier and donates WAY more to charity than this moron ever did!

He swares way to much

2 Markiplier Markiplier Mark Edward Fischbach (born June 28, 1989), known online as Markiplier, is an American YouTube personality. Originally from Honolulu, Hawaii, he began his career in Cincinnati, Ohio, and is currently based in Los Angeles, California.

Of course we all have our opinions, but, I would really like to say that Markiplier has all rights to be higher than Pewdiepie, I do not hate Pewdiepie but he is a bit repetitive now a days.

Mark is my favorite youtuber. Everyday he makes me smile and I cannot help but admire what he does. Words can't explain how much I look up to him and enjoy his presence even from the other side of the screen. He inspired me to be my best and to never give up. Even when I am down, I can't stay that way because Mark cheers me up immediately. Mark is like the best friend I never had. Even though he doesn't know I exist, I know that he cares about me, and I care about him. I love him to death, and nothing can ever change that. Thank you Mark for everything. Your hard work and dedication have helped so many people and helped to make you a success. Thank you so much. I can't ever thank you enough!

Inspiration to us all. I subbed to PewDiePie but quickly unsubbed and then I found Markiplier. He is now, and will be my favorite YouTuber. Mark is a really great person. He is grateful for having what he got. He motivates and encourages to do what you're passionate about and never give up. He is a grateful, inspirational and funny person who can be serious and mature. I guess PewDiePie just doesn't have what Markiplier does. And also, Markiplier doesn't have that much haters. I don't think there are any people who hate Mark. He always puts a smile to my face.

What I like about Mark is how tragic his backstory is and how he turned it all around with YouTube. He is my inspiration. He always makes me laugh no matter what and he always comforts me at low points. His content is of a wide variety and I love his quirky nature. Markiplier, you are the best friend I have ever had.

3 Smosh Smosh Smosh is an American sketch comedy YouTube channel created by Ian Andrew Hecox and Daniel Anthony Padilla. Anthony Padilla created a website called in 2002. He was later joined by his friend Ian Hecox.

PewDiePie is awesome. Don't get me wrong. But he usually does the same old thing; talking in front of a camera while playing video games. But these guys mix it up, and the results are hilarious. Ian and Anthony are some of the funniest guys on the planet, and the way they play off of each other's characters in their skits is hilarious. I know that Anthony recently left to pursue his own career, but I'll probably still associate him with and as a vital part of Smosh. Smosh is the greatest channel in YouTube history. Period.

Their videos are all very creative, all differing. They always come up with some sort of a new, unpredictable gig, and that's what I like about them - their videos have effort put into them, they always have an original concept, and their humor is just funny and not feeling forced to appeal to someone. Oh, and they actually do something outside of shouting at the top of their lungs at a video game.

My friend and I always watch Smosh. They never fail to make us smile

Smosh is really funny. But it got downhill when Anthony left, but it will still leave a place in my heart. - MissRWBY202

4 Nigahiga Nigahiga Ryan Higa, best known as his YouTube username nigahiga, is an American comedian, YouTube personality, and actor. He's best known for his comedy videos, which have been viewed over 3 billion times. His channel was once the most subscribed on YouTube from 2009-2011, longer than any other channel, besides more.

The only YouTuber who has gained my respect. He has this unique style of humor and always keeps his videos unoffensive, relatable and entertaining from the start till the end. It's just that he doesn't often get gets appreciated for all that efforts he put on his videos... He deserve more views and subscribers than any of the other YouTubers, yeah that includes pewdiepie too.

Ryan Higa is literally the best YouTuber. He puts so much effort into his videos, and I feel he is underrated. Was once the most subscribed YouTuber, and literally has an awesome personality. So many other YouTubers are so overrated, for example Pewdiepie. Pewdiepie puts no effort in his videos. If you're not subscribed to Ryan, you are literally living under a rock... he's just so creative.

(by the way, the most shocking thing about him is that he doesn't have a girlfriend! Who wouldn't want him as a boyfriend?! )

Ryan's videos are so creative and funny, and the quality is amazing. You can really tell that he puts so much work into them.

I love Ryan, he is amazing as a person and a YouTuber and makes great quality content for anyone who's looking for a good laugh. Not offensive, not stupid humor or graphic content or cash grab( cough Jake Paul, cough cough) truly a gem. Won't find anyone else like him on the internet. - SassyEquine

5 JackSepticEye

Jack is one of the greatest YouTubers out there along with Markiplier who is also amazing, jack is so dedicated to YouTube and hasn't failed to upload two videos a day for the past few years, he cares so much for his fans and he's so modest and genuine unlike a lot of YouTubers he doesn't let the fame get to him and he thanks us everyday for being with him every step of the way, Jack is a wonderful person and he brings so much joy to millions of people everyday, I think Jack should be #1 he deserves so much more than 59th place, though he will always be number one in the eyes of his fans~

He is good, but his enthusiasm annoys a few, not me! And I think he deserves 2 or 3, by the way I don't know who half of these dudes are - EliHbk

Jack is definitely one of my top favorite YouTubers. He is so sweet. He is such a genuinely happy person that he just lights up the room, even on a screen. He talks to his fans like real people, like my other favorite YouTubers on this list. But he also makes sure to reach out to his fans with depression and anxiety and tells us that even if he might never fully understand just what we're going through, that he will always be here for us and that we can think of him as a friend always there to lean on. I love him so much.

Jack septic eye is the best. Sometimes ( like 25 times a day ) I watch the video All the way. Mostly because HE is technically singing it. It makes me feel so good to watch his videos as he is the best, he is only not number one because he doesn't have the most subscribers, if the top ten list was based on quality videos he would be on top. I don't know why people are mean against each other but he is genuinely the nicest coolest guy ever. Also what some people are saying bad about the you tubers why are you criticizing them? Like, seriously they worked hard to get here. I give respect to each and every YouTube thatvis genuine and non-mean. So sometimes when you guys read this go watch his videos, like, subscribe, and make sure you aren't mean to people based on YouTube.

He's a really nice guy, which is why he's such a good youtuber. He's also funny and helps me feel good whenever I have a bad day. - psiddy42

6 Nostalgia Critic Nostalgia Critic Nostalgia Critic is an American web series created, written, edited, directed and performed by Doug Walker.

Nostalgia critic in my opinion is one of the best Internet reviewers of all time. He is funny,entertaining,and also knows how to keep you interested with the movie even if it's bad. It really feels like your watching the movie with him while he reviews it. This man has the best reactions ever and has changed lives even mine. I was going through a rough time cause I just moved away from my abusive parents and moved in with my grandma.

Now I've never heard or seen videos about him. This was the very fit's time I've ever seen this guy. I was in the living room on the couch with my computer and I wanted to see if I could find one of my favorite movies go watch. A simple wish. I grew up with this movie. Sadly I couldn't find any results on YouTube for the whole movie. Stupid copyright but then I saw something that caught my eye. Nostalgia critic simple wish review. I was like who the heck is the Nostalgia critic? No I'm not clicking it nope. These fingers will not touch this video. ...more

I agree that his newer reviews are even better. I think there's more actual analysis, even though it remains very funny. - FuzzySlippers

The Nostalgia Critic is one of the greatest and one of the most funniest movie critics on planet Earth. His reviews make me laugh so hard, but at the same time they really make me think. His jokes are incredibly smart and original. When I eventually start putting together my own YouTube channel, I will always look back on his videos for inspiration. Heck, even when I can't think of a good joke I turn to him. His reviews have caused me to think differently on how to view movies. He has inspired me (along with many others) to start making reviews of my own. Keep doing what you're doing Doug!

I have so much respect for Doug Walker and his crew. Not only is he extremely funny, but he also examines film in such a deep and thought-provoking way. It's obvious in each revew that he's having a blast and his passion leaps off of the screen. Every video is funny and teaches you something about movies that you didn't know before. The Nostalgia Critic is really what sparked my passion for film and critiquing, and I look forward to what Doug has in store for the future. - phillysports

7 Jacksfilms

One of the funniest YouTubers that I have ever watched, Jacksfilms is the quintessential YouTuber and a genuinely great guy. He started way back in 2006, but whilst other YouTubers of that time or even later have come and gone, Jacksfilms is still around today, using (and parodying) the latest trends to keep himself relevant and entertaining throughout the 12 years he has been making content for the platform. I'd even go as far to say that he is the face of YouTube and a representative of YouTube's past, the present and the future. It's a shame though that he has relatively few subscribers compared to other YouTubers at a comparable level, but in the end, the amount of subscribers that Jack has is irrelevant to the conversation when you are talking about the quality of a YouTube channel and a YouTuber and that is what matters in the end. Me me big boy!

Jack kills me every time I watch him.

This is the epitome of quality content. He makes hilarious parodies, uses audience participation as a way of keeping his fans watching, and makes fun of everything. He's been around since 2006, and yet is only at 4 million subs. The dad of Youtube should be up there with PewDiePie. We need more YouTubers like him. Me Me Big Boy! - nathanherbst

I personally think that TheFineBros are the only YouTube channel which has non bias content. Its fair and all ages can watch. Other channels may be too explicit, overreact, show arrogance in their wealth or hardly upload, I think TheFineBros are the perfect example of the best YouTube channel.

Fine bros is terrible trying to own reacting channels all together like really? They even reacted to their announcement like what the

9 Bart Baker Bart Baker Bart Baker is an American entertainer, web-based comedian, video producer, singer and parody artist. He is best known for making parody videos of notable songs, which he posts on his YouTube channel.

When I first discovered his channel I absolutely loved his videos because it was a 100% music videos parody channel and not just a comedy channel, and it was more specific and it made people aware of what they would see in there. Some of his parodies are incredible and they still make me laugh to this day such as Wrecking Ball, Blurred Lines and Happy.

Bart baker is so awesome, pretty good and creative and he exposes the behaviour of the celebrities and also tells his reviews in most of his songs. He is the best

Great parodies! They don't feel forced, their jokes are genuinely funny, and they actually look decent. His humor may be at times crass, but it's a good kind of crass.

He's hilarious! - Elijah_Cook

He is the Best out off ALL! Back me up is he the Best:-)

He is really funny and he has hit more than 15 million subscribers. He is so awesome, if I could actually see him in real life. I would shout so loud, I would love his autograph and phone number. I will subscribe to his channel. I've watched a lot of his videos, it is amazing and also, he is a bit like me though. Example, if he messes something up, he says Oh no, I forgot to offer them my cookies, Um oh well, you know what let's go let's go. It is unreal. Finally, keep up the good work. I would be looking forward to see your future videos. BIG FAN OF YOURS DAN.

He is the best Minecraft person EVER! Love the horror maps

What the H? this guy should be over pewds. he has never used any actual curse words and he actually changes his content from doing Minecraft videos, Roblox videos and so on. the only controversy he got was the one about him burning an animal but he didn't do anything like make a bunch of Indians dance and then review that video. #TEAMTDMFORLIFE

The Contenders

11 SkyDoesMinecraft

Used to be my favourite YouTube channel 3-4 years ago. Now he's like an older YouTube channel but he's still quite good compared to the newcomers

He stopped swearing again, but he is definitely trying to go back to his roots now. He is doing mod showcases again!

His content is really high quality. He is losing subs slowly (basically staying at the same place actually as of January 2017) but I don't know why. He puts lots of effort into his content. His old videos are hilarious. I still watch him and it's fun.

My friend(Jackson)really likes this channel(me too)so I want to vote sense he did not vote.

12 Ihateeverything

He is hilarious I love watching his video's he gives reasonable reasons to hate something instead of ranting like other YouTubers I love his search for the worst videos most. - StarPitfan

Ill vote for him, but please spell his name correctly 'I Hate Everything'

One of my favorite YouTube channels I like how he is reasonable with his opinions of the things he hates and I personally find him funny.

The only good rant channel on YouTube. While most rant channels consist of people screaming at the top of their lungs like an autistic child (not to offend any real autistic people, you guys are probably better than that) just because they think it's "funny", IHE actually does try to be funny and his jokes do really do have me falling face flat on the floor. - OnyxDash

Why is he this low? He's a charming guy that has a good sense of humour. He even makes his own skits for God sake.

JonTron is amazing and makes the funniest skits, and honestly? He should be higher. I'm trash for him. - stromaemaestro

I personally think he's better than Nostalgia Critic. Don't get me wrong I LOVE NOSTALGIA CRITIC but Jon just seems more original. - LeiaSkywalker

14 PeanutButterGamer

He's hilarious! He deserves to be higher on the list! He makes hilarious videos and he makes me laugh really hard. And his Putt Putt videos were hilarious. My favorite video of his was Mario Galaxy Hacking.

Dude PBG is the funniest tuber in the world to the point he inspires me to want to do YouTube his lets plays are funny his main channels funny and he doesn't have to make inappropriate dirty jokes or cuss like a sailor (some cuss worse than a sailor) and I think people who can make you laugh without cussing or saying dirty jokes to the point you can't breath is awesome and the funniest. Should be higher

My friend is so crazy about him. Believe it or not he actually gave up the night for the Super Bowl to see if peanut butter gamer was doing any live cams. I could tell that day he thought it should totally be number one

He is the funniest channel I have ever watched. I was watching him once and I laughed so hard I cried. He is so funny and so entertaining you can watch him no matter how you feel and you will still die of laughter

15 Good Mythical Morning

I love good mythical morning! Surprised to see it this high, the show has been getting much more popular during the year so I have high hopes this might be a couple spots higher later. Rhett and link are great.

Good Mythical Morning will always be one of my favorite channels. Rhett and Link have such creative minds that inspire and enlighten many people on the other side of the screen. I admire them for always putting a smile on my face and always being supportive. They show us Mythical Beasts that with your best friend, anything is possible and you can go anywhere. This top ten list foesnt matter to me because I know that no matter what, Rhett and Link will always be in my top 3. Thank you Rhett and Link for always helping me to be my mythical best and for making me laugh everyday.

Rhett and Link are awesome and their music videos, commercials, and daily talk show are so hilarious and addictive to watch.

YES! Rhett and Link are amazing, their content is original, funny, and really just unlike anything else you could find on the internet. Genuinely good people who just want to have fun together as best friends and share that joy with other people. Great guys, great content. Love them both. - SassyEquine

The thing is that people only usually praise him for his music videos, about 2% of his total videos. He sold out and became garbage a long time ago, but people love him because of what he did before being bad. - kempokid

He's a God! He makes the funniest, most entertaining videos of all time! He needs to be AT LEAST in the top five! Shane Dawson and Joey Graceffa are fantastic too, and Lush! - Evry1sALittleBitRacist83

I'm sorry, a god? That's a bit extreme. In my opinion, his sense humor is just as good as a 10-year-old's. Bad. I don't find him entertaining in the least bit. - ServaField

This guy is all comedy. He absolutely sucks at playing, but who cares? He's hilarious! He doesn't use swearing as comedy, and even him re-using jokes is funny, the way he does it. - PrettyParrot

18 Shane Dawson

I love Shane so much because he makes insane and hilarious videos and he is always true to himself in his videos. He is not fake like many YouTubers are nowadays, he is always honest with his audience. Some people complain about how he always makes food videos these days and he stopped playing characters and doing sketches like he used to but I think that Shane is one of those people that can put a unique element to every kind of video he makes and he can make you laugh hard even if he just tries a new food or takes a buzzfeed quiz. Besides, his short films "I hate myselfie" and "It gets worse" are simply amazing and so are his books with the same titles. He is one of the most hardworking people on YouTube.

Shane has had his fair share of controversies and problematic moments, that's for sure. But behind all that he truly is a kindhearted and genuine person. He's changed so much throughout his time on YouTube, especially over the past several years, and it's so great to see him happy and being himself after so many years of playing a character just for shock value. He's one of the realest YouTubers out there, and I'm so proud of how far he's come

I have watched Shane for years now and I honestly think there needs to be more people like him in the world. He is hilarious, genuine and it seems like he always has people's best interests at heart. It makes me sad that he talks badly of himself sometimes, because he is honestly such a beautiful human being, inside and out. Obviously I don't know him personally, but anyone who does, I bet it's an absolute honour to know him as he seems such a humble and honest guy.

He is an OG...stil relevant from 2007

I voted for this guy because at the end of each video like a lot of YouTubers he doesn't start asking for lots and lots of subscribers!

And I also love Minecraft and his Minecraft videos!

Minecraft is brilliant but to have someone like Stampylonghead just makes it a hole lot better

20 Danisnotonfire

Why isn't Dan in the top ten? He is hilarious, sweet, awkward, and so likeable. I fell in love with him ever since I saw my first video of him. He makes me really happy

Daniel James Howell is one of the most amazing people probably on the planet. Apart from his adorableness and awkward innuendos he is one of the most caring and loving YouTubers out there. He really shows intense passion for his work and he is not afraid to show his insecurities and say that he's just a human being and he has made some mistakes in his past. Dan is truly a gift for mankind and we are lucky to have him in our lives.

Dan is a hilarious comedian who genuinely loves giving everyone a laugh.

Passionate, compassionate, hilarious, and progressive. Need I say more? I don't, but I will. He is a relatable inspiration who works his hardest to make sure everyone is included regardless of anything that has a prejudice built around it (i.e. sexuality, race, gender, etc.) and he is a strong supporter of his fans. Honestly AmazingPhil should als be higher. These two are honest inspirations who put out honest, poignant, and hilarious content. The only downside is that they don't upload regularly, but their fanbase doesn't even mind because what they do put out is excellent.

21 AmazingPhil AmazingPhil Philip Michael "Phil" Lester is an English YouTuber and former radio personality from Rawtenstall in the valley of Rossendale, Lancashire. He is best known for his YouTube channel AmazingPhil.

Phil deserves to at least be in the top ten. People really underestimate his personality and creativity. First, he's literally been around before YouTube was even a year old, and even from his very first video, he was warm and welcoming and not afraid to be a lil' kooky. It's since been ten years, and he has accomplished so much, and improved the lives of millions. His videos are always original ideas, and consistently inspires YouTube trends. He has such a heavy influence in the YouTuber community. He's extremly creative, even being able to take the simplest idea and create a whole video about it. His style is bright, also very clean cut, and appropriate for any age to watch - as he's aware that even kids as young as six watch him. He's an excellent role model for people - he has such a bright and positive perspective on life, which is an absolute miracle in this day and age in social media. He even met his best friend (Dan Howell/@danisnotonfire) through his channel, pulled him out ...more

As one of the original YouTubers, he definitely deserves more recognition, especially for the challenges he has created. He is way more than just Dan's best friend, he is the creator of the famous 7 Second Challenge, Tumblr Tag, as well as other content that is now ubiquitous. His positive personality, sweet nature, funny sense of humor, and creative mind are apparently not enough to earn him respect, but the shallow viewer or subscriber will overlook or even downright disrespect him in favor of "more conventionally attractive"(and usually very unoriginal) YouTubers. Fortunately, he has a fanbase who adores him and his content, most notably the aforementioned Dan.

Phil deserves to be so much higher, he's so underrated. He is such a wonderful person. Extremely funny, talented, completely and utterly adorable... There isn't even enough words for me to describe just how amazing (oops) Phil is. He always puts a smile on my face, whether I'm watching his videos, or just reading any one of his tweets. Ugh, my little angel bean is just too much. I definitely recommend him to people who haven't seen his videos.

He is sooo funny, I can’t help but laugh when I watch him. His channel has grown a lot and I like the way he improves his videos and puts a lot of effort into them. There so many other things I could say but can’t explain😂 He’s amazing 😍😂

How on Earth is this number 285?! He makes excellent points on everything he does and his jokes are absolute gold!

This is a guy who actually really deeply cares for the state of YouTube and unlike many who lets what's wrong with it stay he actually wants those problems to be fixed

He has great points to make and always has clever things to say.

23 theodd1sout

There's just so much people that don't know about this guy or animation at all and that needs to be different. He's growing really fast and that's how it should be (I discovered him a few months ago) because he's the type of YouTuber that once you find him you watch all of his videos multiple times and want new content immediately (like Nigahiga). Very entertaining (like Nigahiga), only thing that's kind of stupid is the time he needs to make a video (LIKE NIGAHIGA) so I give him a 9/10 (12/10 for effort though, LIKE NIGAHIGA)

Completely hilarious! Never watched anyone else this funny!

I've seen all of his videos I have not seen one that I did not enjoy

Love James with all my heart! So pure and unique, him and Jaiden are both the rare kind that offer family friendly content that can be enjoyed by everyone. Real gems, those two. - SassyEquine

Why so low? I'd rather have a buffalo take a diarrhea dump in my ear than see him all the way at 39.

Nostaligia Critic, Jontron, and Angry video Game Nerd. Should be 1 2 and 3. They actually Write quality material and have a show. Most others on this list are utter trash. Smosh, Pewdiepie.. It shows you 12 year olds run the internet, just like the music industry

26 Cryaotic

I've watched Cry for many years by now, and I can confidently say (well, as confident as you can get without actually knowing a guy) that he's completely genuine. As another commenter mentioned, Youtube tends to be filled with people that have loud, big, exuberant personalities. At times, all that screaming and amplified reactions can exhaust a viewer. Of course I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with that; I'm just saying that it can be a refreshing break to watch someone with a chill personality for once. The other people writing here seem to have already nailed him down pretty well. In summary, Cry is a chill, humble, genuine, helpful, caring person. That's the very reason why I adore him. It doesn't feel like he puts on a fake persona to appease his fans. He seems like an actual person.

The unique thing about Cry is that, while he respects his viewers, he really only plays games that he thinks he will enjoy. Because of this, he is less jaded than other YouTubers who tend to play what they think their audience wants to see, and it makes for overall a more sincere experience with no fake reactions. He has charming commentary, but allows viewers to experience the game with him rather than just watch him react.

Cry has an awesome voice and manages to keep a stable upload schedule. He's funny and most of all, he doesn't scream annoyingly like a few gamers on YouTube.

Irrelevant top 10's, too many anime top 10's, they even make lists on very small things in video games, movies, etc.

I also like trains

Come on, do you NOT like trains?

How is he not in the top 10?

Tomska is what Youtube used to be all about - A filmmaker who passionate about bringing to life different and fun ideas. While he may not upload as often as some of the bigger channels, anything he does upload is absolutely brilliant, and I think in that respect he's one of the few creators who causes everyone to stop and listen whenever he brings something new out.

It's also good to see how proffessional he is, especially in a place like YouTube. He always makes sure that the right people are credited, to show any necessary content warnings, and most importantly he treads the fine line of making jokes about sensitive topics in the right way. While lot's of channels often get into trouble, because of a lack of understanding of what their jokes may mean, he seems to carry a very strong understanding of what is right and wrong on Youtube. - demisolia

It is pathetic that Chuggaaconroy, the guy who practically defined Let's Playing, is at the 135th place. That's kind of sad.

Chuggaaconroy is one of the best YouTubers, he makes informed let's plays and has a great personality, he should at least be in the top 25.

This is the man who got me to watch YouTube, this can do way better than, already beat the grumps and is catching up to Sean.

Chuggaa is the funniest YouTuber I've watched. He's my personal favourite and he deserves to be much higher on this list. As a long time subscriber, I admire him for practically defining let's plays and being a role model all-around.

31 Game Theory

Definitely my choice for best YouTuber, as he creates YouTube-centric content (not just the YouTube-based stuff, but the topics he talks about and the way he talks about them is very distinctly YouTube), and what he creates is very well-done. Yeah, some theories are not 100% provable, but Game Theory has never sincerely implied or said that the theories are without holes. He's gone into detail on saying that some of them are more holey than the others, and he's not totally confident in them, but he and his team put TONS of research hours into them. How easy do you think it is to know every aspect of every lore of all or the theories? And, yeah, he has made a few screw-ups, which he's admitted to, but it does seem most detractors are eager to dismiss any explanation. He councils smaller YouTubers on improving and growing their channels. Game Theory is, truly, the best YouTuber.

I absolutely love game theory! Ever since I got back into playing tons of Mario games and other games made by Nintendo, this guy has just been absolutely making my day each and every time I watch him! A lot of people say that he ruins the Mario world, you have to remember that he just likes to stretch the concepts and that makes his videos even more interesting! And most of all to all those haters of Game Theory, you have to remember that his Youtube channel literally says "THEORY" so that's all I have to say.

He doesn't ruin Mario his fans does they don't know what a Theory even is! - Aguythatpeopleignores

Game theory is definitely my favorite channel I've been with game theory for years now before there first hundred thousand there amazing

Matpat is my fave! Him and Stephanie are relationship goals! - SassyEquine

She's super funny, pretty, has dogs with their own personality and seems like a cool girl to hang out with. Whats not to love

One of the only YouTube's I'm able to watch nowadays. She's sweet, funny, and keeps it real. I appreciate the effort she puts into her videos, and how enjoyable her content is.

Most entertaining girl by just being simple and herself. Such a character..

Honestly he's better than pewdiepie

I swear.. This Guy needs to be higher on the list.. He is really hilarious and I personally believe anyone can find a little humor in his videos. Hell even his new content is amazing!

I don't know who this is

How is RWJ so low? He's the most entertaining YouTube, like ever. He's created an =3 family & jokes that only the family can understand. He's hilarious, I can never get tired of him

He was the last "real" YouTuber until gaming took over. He's the funniest person I've ever seen on YouTube. I still go and watch his old videos because they are so funny. Definitely the best YouTuber ever.

36 Rhett and Link

Yes, yes YES! They actually take time to make their videos both look good while being hilarious at the same time which is becoming a rare quality on YouTube. They may not post regularly but in my opinion that's a lot better than making horrible, unoriginal videos that have enough jump-cuts to give you a migraine. They put quality before quantity and that's just one of the things I love about them!

These guys should be MUCH higher! There is no profanity in their videos except for ear biscuits, they are funny and their videos are very good quality. Sorry Pewdiepie, but these guys are so much better. Their videos are appropriate for all ages.

They should be way higher on this list. They're so much better than Pewdiepie. Not to mention annoying orange which should be last on this list.

I've been watching him since 2013 and that guy is just a bubbly, beautiful ball of life. He's super creative and his videos are just great. His passion for photography is well-integrated into his Tumblr and Instagram feeds. He's also one of the sweetest guys out there, he has a great balance humor and serious topics and he's done campaigns to help better the world. All in all, one of the best YouTubers out there.

Connor is so adorable! He's also one of the most inspiring YouTubers I've ever watched- even my Nana thinks so. He tries his best to help with all he can and just make his subscribers happy... I love Connor so much!

Connor is just the best coffee and cat addict I know, he is always so caring and millions of people live him as much as I do (but not more) and he is always busy doing good for our generation! Oh and he's bae too

He's a great guy. He just radiates positivity, with a love for his fans. - Absolite

She is the best YouTuber she tells funny stories based on her own Experience that are most of the time funny but the Face Reveal Video was very sad because of what Jaiden Experienced but she is still a great and Inspiring YouTuber honestly I can't say Anything Negative about Her or Her Channel so she's doing great and I hope she Becomes Successful in her Career

Heck Yeah - SassyEquine

She'll never rise to the top because of the fame of people like Pewdiepie and others, but that's fine. She's just the most adorable YouTuber on all of the YouTube and she makes great animations and tells funny stories. Also she does a lot of things with theodd1sout and that gets her a lot of points.

She great m8

I like the Honest Game Trailers, but they stopped doing everything else I used to like on their channel, such as Why We're Single and their top 5 lists. - Yoshilord

Venturiantale is the best there funny and lovable. Some day I want to meet them! Liked all of there videos subscribed I hope they will be on YouTube for a long time

I love this channel I think in my opinion I think it should be higher in ranking their channel is the best

Honestly. How has no one seen these people? Go subscribe, now! Venturian is among the most popular gaming YouTubers. He has corny comedy fit for kids and teens of all ages from 7 to even 25+ years old. He is a good inspiration and a clean channel. Can't believe this isn't on the list. - iiKyodaiKickz

Edginess pushed to the absolute limit. This channel is only for those who love ridiculous characters, absurd situations, edgy topics, and even edgier delivery. Basically, it's hilarious, but watch at the risk of your own sanity.

MMM FILTHY FRANK IS THE BEST HE SHOULD BE IN THE TOP 10 he so weird but that's what I love about him, he's just so awesome and makes me laugh when I'm upset or angry! He's JUST THE BEST along with pewdiepie

But filthy frank is totally one of the best YouTubers- HE NEEDS TO BE HIGHER

Pewdiepie, Markiplier, Smosh, all those channels are garbage.

This is entertainment.

He should be in the top 10 R.I.P filthy frank

How is PewDiePie above him!?! His awful, annoying, money-laundering, stupid, repetitive, boring, TERRIBLE content has been polluting YouTube since 2010. James, however, has been making videos since 2004. I know technically he started in 2006, but he first made videos in 2004. He's far funnier than PewDiePie ever will be and ever has been, and PewDiePie wouldn't even exist if James never made videos. So, if you're reading this, Felix, you can go to hell.

Smosh and PewDiePie at the top?! This guy is the guy who made video game shows a thing! His creativity, originality and overall talent makes him far better than PewDiePie or Smosh!

Hey avgn is the best along pewdiepie and nostalgia CRITIC

Really PewDiePie above James. The dick Tracy review will make you cry.

She has the greatest personality on the planet. She makes videos that are hilarious yet you can relate to. And she can also make your day better. Whenever you're having a down day, and you start watching her videos on YouTube, you are bound to feel so much better because she's incredibly goofy, witty and loveable.

She is someone you can relate to and knows what is going on in our lives. She can always make me smile and laugh I can't believe she is this low!

She is so wise and I love how she shares that wisdom with the Internet. I also love how positive she is all the time, which makes me smile whenever I watch her videos. She is insanely hilarious and I have and will continue to watch her videos for a long time.

She makes garbage content and is unfunny
