In this day and age, there are countless YouTube content creators (or YouTubers for short) to watch. You could honestly replace all TV shows currently out there with what you find on the video sharing site and still have plenty leftover. It’s been impactful enough to have television executives take notice.
There has also been plenty of controversy from these internet celebrities, which tends to take over the narrative. That’s not what we’re going to focus on here. Instead, let’s take the time to celebrate the folks we enjoy on YouTube.
As far as positive people go, it’s hard to find anyone who fits the bill better than Dan Avidan. The singer/comedian is a joy, whether as the lead vocals of Ninja Sex Party or as one half of Game Grumps. There’s also Funhaus composed of Adam Kovic, Bruce Greene, Alanah Pearce, and more who regularly release entertaining gaming content. They have even extended their humorous take on the industry as a regular news show through the Inside Gaming channel. I would also be remiss to not mention SNES drunk who makes brief but poignant videos on classic titles, ROM hacks, and even non-SNES games. And last but not least, shoutout also to our own Brett Medlock!
However, I’ll give the spotlight to my personal favorite YouTube personality, Maximilian Dood. As a fighting game fan myself, I was always on the lookout for others who shared my passion. When finding Max’s channel, I was pleased to find he not only loved the fighting genre but even the same games and characters as I do. It was a perfect match. And having just reached 1,000,000 subscribers, Max has become the major voice for fighting games online.
