Worst Youtube Gaming Channels


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.

No surprises here. I like how he immersed himself in the horror genre in gaming, but honestly, I cannot watch his videos for more than 2 minutes because all he does is talk & talk & talk while waiting for an opportunity to scream like an idiot. He screams like this is almost every video & it can get extremely boring after a while. More importantly, he has the worst fanbase in youtube history. The fanbase consists of mostly 12 year old kids who shouldn't be on the internet in the first place & if they see a gaming video of the same game PewDiePie has played, the fans automatically accuse the other youtuber for copying PewDiePie & honestly, this is perfect example of immaturity. - PlaystationArchfiend

I'll keep it simple he clearly doesn't release quality content and is generally not funny. His fans give him a horrible name and are generally 12 year olds (In how they act). There are so many better gaming channels that review games (Which are high Quality) and are better LP channels (Lesser Quality) than Pewdiepie. The only reason he got so popular is more. Than likely because he is international.

PewDiePie. How do you even like this guy? I'm pretty sure he does his videos for 1 thing only; MONEY.
Many other youtubers do the videos for viewers, and because it makes them feel good. Nope. Not PewDiePie. And in his Horror Gaming, all he does is scream like a little girl.

2 DSPGaming

This guy is an insult to the gaming community. He is obnoxious, acts like a child, insults and blocks his fans if they dare criticize him, sexist and racist remarks in his videos, not to mention his need to throw out cheesy sex jokes every time he is presented with boobs on his T.V. screen, and possibly one of the biggest hypocrites alive.

When he is unable to have progress in any of his playthrough's he resorts to swearing and insulting the game and it's developers. He lacks every definition of the term 'common sense' in his playthroughs. He is unable to read hints and tips, and resorts to asking streamers what to do. He whines like a little child in most of his videos, which has given him the nickname of 'manchild.' This is a 30 year old boy who makes his living off of youtube. His sole purpose is to make money, and nothing but. He refuses to stream regularly because it "Doesn't make enough money." And when he does stream, he manages to split a 1 hour recording into ...more

Where to begin...
He doesn't have nearly as much of a following as others on this list, but there is a reason for that. When presented with a tutorial, hint, or text box from a game he is having trouble with, he will say "f@*# you, " and when he doesn't know what to do because of this, he resorts to insulting the game developers for not explaining it. It is unbelievable that he uses it as his job. I believe he needs to see a psychologist. There is so much wrong with this guy, his videos, and the way he treats people (including his fans). He is a massive hypocrite who can't take criticism, or even the blame for his own failure in a very well known game. What's worse, he never learns. He played through MGS 1-3, and got frustrated trying to play them like Call of Duty. He never edits videos and uses a camcorder to record his T.V.. He give BS excuses as to why he doesn't direct capture. He might use direct capture now, but insulted whoever tried to help him through it. One of ...more

Wow...So a guy set up a FREE website and gaming desktop for him to use and he just insults him? And he didn't even show SOME appreciation? I already hate this guy and haven't even seen a single video of his. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

I feel like some of these guys don't actually take themselves seriously, are just trolling for the sake of garnering YouTube views, and at the very least realize they're appealing to a demographic primarily composed pre-teens, tweens, and people with traumatic brain injuries. This cannot be true for DSP Gamer whose hubris, inability to accept responsibility for his actions or criticism for his shortcomings, and complete lack of gaming skills make him the living embodiment... the actual personification of Terrible YouTube Gaming. That may sound like hyperbole, and a tad extreme...

I assure you, it is not. He is complete lack of anything even resembling actual gaming skills, coupled with his claim that he is not only a pro gamer, but one of the best gamers in the country, makes his whole act especially ridiculous. His incessant whining along with his constant assertion that his failures are always the result of some external factor (e.g. the game design, lag, cheap tactics, etc.) ...more

Phil treats his fan-base terrible despite them donating money to him. Blames everyone and everything but himself on his mistakes. Phil lost a sponsorship from OPSeat after they did research on him. He's a manchild who throws a temper tantrum if he doesn't get what he wants.

3 SkyDoesMinecraft

He used to be funny, but now his vocabulary consists entirely of 'squids', 'butter (spelled 'budder')'and 'majestic'. His videos are completely idiotic as well as his jokes. His terrible fanbase consists of 5-13 year olds, that are vicious if you refer to gold ingots with their proper name instead of their 'majestic budder'. I can not stress this enough: Avoid this channel at any and all costs.

He's so annoying! All he says is BUTTER which is extremely annoying, Worst fan base EVER (little 11 year olds who say butter all the time) and kids watch his videos but sky cusses so much!

He is completely stupid, he is not funny, and completely destroyed YouTube.

All he does is the generic minecraft video format, occasionally insulting squids and use the term "budder". This guy's channel deserves 0 subscribers and have all his "budder" and himself killed using a pool of H2SO4 (sulfuric acid). - MChkflaguard_Yt

4 TobyGames

This guy is just pathetic. When I thought Sky was bad, I looked at TobyGames. Now I actually like Sky. His jokes suck. He thinks if he talks in a fake, annoying voice, he will be funny. If you have watched one of his videos, you will see what I mean by the "fake voice." I can't STAND his fans, they bash people that simply say they don't like the channel. Sure, Pewdiepie's fanbase is worse, but TobyGames's videos are worse. When Pewdiepie tries to be funny, (but fails) Toby just talks in a weird voice. Even though I hate Pewdiepie, TobyGames is Pewdiepie number two.

He's entertaining in short bursts, but you can tell he's just puppy-milling out content. It's like he has a timer next to his computer to stop-watch an "episode". Happy Wheels is the best example. He'll play it to crank out an episode, make voices, squeal, then wrap it up and post it. I guess he does this for like 4-5 other games during the day. He cranks out a lot of content, but it's like he's only really "playing" them for an hour a day. Sweet gig. Play games for an hour, post 6 videos, sit on your duff the rest of the day. Watch the ad revenue roll in. He's got a schtick and at least he sticks with it. Consistency trumps quality. But, it gets old fast. And the production values are non-existent.

Pathetic. This guy is face in front of the camera and he's obviously copying other people but at the same time, he's actually TRYING to be different. There's one problem, it was just so obvious on all the things he do. It's just so obvious that he's trying to be different, and it's just so obvious that he's faking all his reactions to "entertain" the viewers. He laughs at anything, even if he doesn't find it funny, and he gets angry, even though he's not really mad. He's just acting all this up to show what a reaction is on a video game reaction video. All I know is that he's just a big waste of time to watch and has no sense of humor in video games or any other of his videos

Not good

I think he's fine, like whats wrong with him?

Sean is doing good he is not a sellout and he cares for his audience unlike a few YouTubers.

Its bs how people are saying he is telling people he will help with their depression as a hook to manipulate. Because when it was about half a year of watching him I went through depression and was very upset. I heard nothing of him talking about depression and helping so I wasn't "hooked" because of something he said like that. I watched one video, then another and another and so on. You know why? Because it made me laugh, made me happy. I liked that he was always loud and positive, it helped. I know I have a 1% of him acknowledging me, and I don't really care. He still makes me laugh. I don't blame him for not being able to reply, he has A LOT of subscribers. It's stressful, and it's not like he can be Santa and reply to every single person in a few hours. Oh and his so called repetitive and trying-to-hard jokes? So what? It makes him him. It makes me laugh, along with millions of others. Is that such a sin? Yeah, you and others may not like it, but you don't need to talk ...more

Over hyped bs. Wished he’d stop being a loud. Thinks the commonly misguided thought that LOUDER=funnier. Curses way to often in the same fashion. Wouldn’t be bad if it were just a normal level but everything must be shouted. Jokes are meh quality at best.

You guys do realize his entire channel is a troll channel.

Just hates on everything he reviews. He gave M3 a bad review.

This guy is bad at Sonic Games so he thinks they are bad!

Stupid digimon lover... Enough said.

7 Markiplier

I don't think Markiplier is the worst, I actually enjoy his videos. But the fake reactions and trying too hard to appease fans is just too much. I go on the comments and I see the most annoying children, immature people, including bronies, furries, roleplayers etc. and it's because of the negative turn his channel has taken. 2013, he was the bomb, my favorite YouTuber. Now my favorite is ChilledChaos because he doesn't fake everything and is okay with being offensive, and his fans aren't a bunch of unintelligent kids who are always roleplaying and crying about how bad their life is.

This comment is going to get a couple "go die in a hole" and "I hate you, you're wrong," and those will only prove the point I just made. If you reply to me denying what he has become, you are either new to his channel, ignorant, or just biased. Believe me kids, most of us stopped enjoying his videos like we used to. If we could travel back to 2013, we would, but that Markiplier is gone, and this ...more

I used to love Markiplier. Sadly he has changed. And his fan base has become toxic. If you make a comment such as agreeing with another viewer wishing to see more lets plays which is what his channel used to be, you will be attack by fan girls and boys who think if they will defend him enough may be he will notice them. It is clear that he is trying to move on away from lets plays but will not admit it because he will most likely lose the gaming community that helped him reach his first million. He even stated he knows this YouTube thing won't last forever and thus why he is taking singing and acting lessons. When I agreed with another poster (mind you both of us were not nasty about it we simply said "Less skits and more lets plays" he allowed fans to attack both of us until he finally jumped in with a "I did not make this channel for you I made it for everyone." Which is odd because if that is the case I am part of everyone and everyone who liked our comments. ...more

These markiplier fans are very immature. Some hipocrite below me says to keep our opinions to ourselves, but he has the nerve to make HIS loud and clear. Another one says to go die. Seriously? You need to grow up. This vote is on worst YouTube gaming channels, not the worst person I think Markiplier is a good person, but I can't stand this overly defensive fanbase who thinks we hate him personally. I also don't like his video content overall, since all he plays are lame simulators and games that people really don't care about. He screams all the time and isn't serious about gaming at all. Go ahead and thumb down this comment if you want, but I'm only being brutally honest: Markiplier's gaming channel is stupid.

Why is Markiplier on this list? I love his videos!

8 Annoying Orange Gaming

I can't even with this dude. His voice is like the Annoying Orange's! I mean, he's trying to be funny, but he's obnoxious and disturbing! I hate this guy, not to be rude, but he needs to get an actual life and stop sitting around playing videos, if you're going to do that, come up with a better username and speak properly! Pewdiepie, Mark and Jack are the only good gamers (and Dan and Phil) that I know. Actually get a life, dude!

Ugh, seriously. He's so damn annoying. (Hence the name) I know it's actually MEANT to be annoying but heck, it's gotten to the point where it's not even funny!

I watched Annoying orange when it first came out. It was good for say, about, two episodes. It's now just a dough raker based off of purely five year olds.

This guy sucks

If you thought ijustine was bad enough, wait until you see her gaming channel. - PlaystationArchfiend

Taking a quick look at the channel will easily tell you that it was just made to make a few extra bucks. I can hear her thinking "Hey, is there any way I can play Minecraft while making money off of it. Wait."

Justine is just bad all around. She should be #1.

I accidentally click his videos because I don't see his face in the thumbnail but when I hear him my ears bleed and I get autism. I want his fans to realise how terrible he is and get him banned. He has a shop, a shop! A place where you can spend money to wear autism. Worse than pewdiepie and enraged cinema.

I use to like watching Grand Theft Auto 5 videos until I stumbled on his channel. I expected a decent gameplay based on the number of views and subscribers. Once I starting watching a video this guy screams as loud as he can during a race, then the others in his gameplay scream back all trying to scream over one another. I figured maybe it's just that video but nope. Every single video is this guy screaming loud, sucks that he's not in the top 10. at least Pewds creates different content in his videos, unlike the SCREAMING KIDS making a fuss because they all crash their vehicles. If you ever watch a video just make sure you turn down the speakers, your ears will thank you.

I hate this so much. He must have some impressive tags or algorithms or something that makes his videos pop up everywhere. Literally everywhere, and it's just him and his equally annoying friends shouting all over the top of each other as they play. The ideas for his videos are good which is infuriating as I keep clicking on them and realizing I've clicked on a zero edited piece of video with the worst people on the planet shouting over each other. Someone please make it stop!

The Contenders

11 xxmysteriousmanxx

Simply TERRIBLE. Whenever he talks, he sounds like a zombie or some guy on drugs, and says "" WAY too much. He complains about everything, and doesn't sound very engaged in what he's doing in his commentary. Clearly doing it for the money.

12 Stampylonghead

I used to watch him when his videos were actually good but he slowly turned into a kiddie channel its like he's ageing backwards. And not to mention that ALL the games he played are at least 10+ and the Sims is T for teen all his Minecraft videos are the same thing build play bye build play bye build crack a joke only a 5 year old would find funny play bye. He is tedious and boring I use to watch his videos for comedy relief but I never set foot in his channel after he blew up the Minecraft slave houses witch were my favorite part of his world. And don't even get me started on the fact that he acts as if whats happening in the game is happening in real life. GET A LIFE MAN

I can't watch his videos for more than 4 minutes without cringing. his fanbase mainly consists of 5 - 10 year olds who shouldn't be on YouTube in the first place. His "fanbase" also acts mentally retarded and immature, and is a pure example of why kids should be banned from the internet. Also known as the "child friendly" side of YouTube. God, since when was YouTube supposed to be for children? This guy is sick and probably a child molester..

Why is this at the bottom of the list? This guy is annoying, immature and all he does is scream in his videos and act appealing to 5 year olds. What the heck? This dude is on the YouTube popular gaming section everywhere and oh my god is this guy annoying.

I have a great connection to "stampy", he was the first youtuber I ever found on youtube. After of a few years of not being up-to-date, looking back, stampylonghead is a terrible channel. Joseph brags about how he makes a minecraft video per day like it's a good thing. No editing, poor execution, nothing original and overall bad. The innocent tone is in my opinion not good. I don't have a problem with channels appealing to younger audiences, but pretednig you're Disney or something is too much. I know its not Joseph's fault that his audience (which he annoyingly pretends to be part of) is so cringy and stupid, but such age groups shouldn't be called out by making a whole amalgamation of channels (the infamous magic animal club). If we ignore the whole thing about the community, the videos (as I said before) are really poor quality, and the attempts at "jokes" and "scripted stories" are just... ugh. PS. anyone looking for a more honest and mature dose of Joseph's content, check out the ...more

Not really a gaming channel. He's just a troll.

"Intelligent" and "Call of Duty fanboy" can't work together.

The name is an oxymoron

This is the worst name ever it makes me cry evertim

14 The Irate Gamer

It's also worth mentioning that the Irate Hack is notorious for ripping off and plagiarizing the Angry Video Game Nerd in some of his videos.

Irate Gamer Sucks Blog. Check it out.

He only cares about skylanders, doesn't know Metal Gear, and doesn't talk about modern games such as assasin Creed, Grand Theft Auto, and Halo

Basically, this guy is a plagarist after the Angry Gamer trend was burning due to the success of James Rolfe. Due to the fall of the Angry Gamer trend and only few survived like AVGN, AngryJoe, JonTron and few others I think? While this along with other plagarists fall due to the aforementioned plagarism - YourWaifuSucks

Why is he here? He is not even as famous. In fact, pewdie stole his stuff

What? James is awesome, he's my favorite YouTuber. He's hilarious lol, not like all these other boring people mentioned here... He's the only one I'm subscribed to in this list and it's for a good reason. Why do some of you hate him? He doesn't act like a douche, the fame didn't get to his head, he's part of a crew of YouTubers (the creatures) and he's the only one who has more than 2M subs. He never talks about it. (never talks about his sub count compared to the others) He kept both feet on the ground, stayed real and funny and didn't really change over the years. He's still the old same hilarious dude I'll always watch. If you hate him, could we possibly know why? Because I really don't see how you could hate on him.

Why Is Nova on this list? He's actually good. He hasn't sold out, he cares about his fans, his videos are still top notch, and he's still the same funny dude he was back in 2011. He never brags or mentions how much subscribers he has, he plays good games, he still has funny commentary, and he actually realizes what fame can do to people. In FACT, Pewdiepie ripped off some of his style back when he was still a small channel. Someone, please give an explanation as to why he is not good?

Take him off the list. Nova is a great youtuber. He's funny, he cares about his audience and he's has never had a beef with any youtuber to gain popularity or to create drama (Unlike the rest who make stupid vlogs complaining about everything). He has his own style and he never hides his true colors (like the majority on YT).

Yes I hate her videos - ActorMan123

I don't know I'm just upset gamers keep ignoring their fans like come on

Annoying, you can tell she doesn't actually care about the games, (Going on her phone during the cutscenes) and pretends to be worse at the games than anyone even could be.

I don't think shes funny, just boring.

17 TotalBiscuit

It actually makes me laugh that people hate YouTubers because of their accents. Like, jeez! It's not their faults!

Why is he on this list

Why in the name of god is TB higher on this list than bloody DSP?!

He has well thought out opinions and fairly decent critique skills, so why is he disliked? There's a few reasons, he can be very obnoxious when talking about consoles or PC hardware, he gives off an incredibly smug attitude in this regard, always quick to gushover his horrifically over done specs (two gtx titans? Really? ) And he is outright childish on frame rates or fov, claiming he gets sick or ill when their too low, like come on man, finally whenever he talks with other people, if they aren't completely in his idea of 'mature' his tone always gives off a sense he thinks he is superior, tl;Dr good YouTube's, awful ego
