Favorite/Least Favorite YouTubers?

idk I think if one wants to create as many male characters as they please or female characters as they please that's perfectly fine. If you want to do representation, good for you. Just make a great character and I'll like him.

There's also some pretty badass females in games. Samus? Chun Li? Lara Croft? Sonya? Ms. Pacman? They're all pretty old characters too and people like them.

Oh don't get me wrong. 90% of characters I want to make are male, because I want to tell a story using male characters. But honestly, I'm not a large fan of female video game characters in general, males stick out to me more. Major female characters have this tendency to be sexy and a bit homogenized, even if they are badass like Samus or Lara Croft is, and I can really only name like, three favorite female characters in a cast out of all video games I've played that I've really liked (Rosalina and Toadette, both from Mario series and Raine from Tales of Symphonia).

And btw, we're not really talking about the characters in of themselves but the representation of female gaming YouTubers in proportion to male ones (though I suppose that works in tandem with the audience). I don't think there's a big-name female Mario YouTuber from what I remember. Some games however, do have a larger portion of female YouTubers such as the aforementioned Animal Crossing or the Sims but I don't think it's a coincidence that life sim games have a larger female playerbase.

I remember it so you don't have too
Stryder7X is the only Mario related YouTuber that I watch, his videos about are good and I enjoy learning about how the Paper Mario games work.

Ahoy - Longer essay style videos about older games (normally PC games), or videos exploring the history of a gun in videos games.
BrainScratch Commentaries - An LP channel featuring a group of four people who never talk about the game, and will always have one part where they talk about Sonic.
Caddicarus - Videos about PlayStation games.
Gaming Historian - Videos discussing the development behind NES/GameBoy era games and peripherals.
LGR - Talks about older PC games, and goes shopping in thrift stores.
Maxmilian Dood - Streams a variety of games, normally Fighting Games.
Nerrel - Has a good sense of humour.
RadicalSoda - Ignoring the thumbnails, his videos remind of JonTron when he was good.
Scott the Woz - Also reminds me of JonTron.
SomecallmeJohnny - Talks about videos games, is also a member of BrainScratch.
Summoning Salt - Longer essay style videos exploring the history of Speedruns.
The Geek Critique - Longer essay style videos.
Vinesauce (Vinny) - Streams games and consistently manages to make it funny.

Also FUNKe. I don't know how to describe his videos, but their really good and you should watch them.

If we're going to talk about nonMario video game-central YouTubers, plenty that I watch. I think the main reason I don't watch Mario YouTubers is that I already know plenty of the series and I'm more curious about games that I don't know well about.

Jim Sterling: Staunch regular on his videos, talks about the game industry mostly.
Angry Joe: Game reviews, though I don't watch him too often these days, I still thoroughly enjoy classic Angry Joe though and his bad game reviews are the best.
ProJared: Had a controversy that he tried to resolve, so I enjoy his content.
JonTron: Hate his alt-right views so I pretty much stopped watching him because of it. But I used to like his videos a lot.
AVGN: People should know his schtick at this point.
PBG: Like his videos, especially his thrift store games that do have MSB edutainment titles in them.
GrayStillPlays: All of his Sim death videos are great.
Let's Game It Out: Has a blunt yet sadistic sense of humor for all of the games he plays (a lot of them are simulation games), breaks games, and I love him for that. He should play an Animal Crossing game honestly.
We Broke: Guys who laugh at the bugs and glitches of bad games, love them.


The bird bard himself!
Well, I might as well name off the non-Mario gaming YouTubers I watch since I only really mentioned Nathaniel Bandy and Arlo before.

Scott the Woz - He talks about various gaming subjects with the perfect mixture of information, opinion, and humor. I feel he could make a video on anything and it would still be enjoyable.

Oddheader - Makes videos about easter eggs and other mysterious findings in video games. They're very informative and quite interesting.

PeanutButterGamer - Makes goofy videos about various games. He specializes in silly fun.

IntroSpecktive - Smash Bros. focused channel. He uploads pretty frequently and his videos are short and sweet unlike a lot of YouTubers these days.

LSuperSonicQ - Makes videos on lost media and other obscure stuff. He actually covers a lot more than gaming, but he does enough gaming content that it's appropriate to list him here.

AsumSaus - Used to make Melee compilations, but now he makes videos that go into detail on various specific details of Melee. His videos are very well edited and he makes some great thumbnails.

JonTron - He's not even really a gaming YouTuber anymore, but his content is still entertaining. Funny thing is I didn't even start watching him until his recent return to making videos about a year ago.

Raio - A rather small YouTuber who does fairly standard gaming videos but with a twist: he draws a bunch of artwork that goes along with his topic and displays it as the video goes on. Unfortunately, he hasn't uploaded anything for a pretty long time.

NormalBoots - They used to make Madness, a tournament-style show where the judges decide on which games/shows/whatever are the best, but ever since the ProJared controversy nearly a year ago, they've completely stopped that. They said they were gong to start it back up again, but it's been a hot minute....

Loeder - Makes some sweet 8-bit remixes of Nintendo music.

The Game Theorists - Honestly, I barely watch them anymore since I'm not interested in most of their videos and they annoy me to an extent, but I'm still subscribed to them so I might as well put them. I do watch a video of theirs occasionally and I generally enjoy it when I do.


The idiot who puts things in the wrong board.
Don't believe everything you see just because someone is acting like a victim. Ask questions, do research, wait for the counter arguments.

If the Projared thing taught me anything it's that you should never treat accusations as the absolute truth right off the bat.


Edit:I meant to say Projared, not ProZD.

This is like, up for law enforcement to solve, not social media, I don't get why it's talked on social media.

Yeah but for now imma assume innocent unless i see darn good proof otherwise

i imagine the common interest that are often associated with males and females play a integral part in that.

I play The Sims since the 2000's , and im male but im very aware that as of today that particular playerbase is mostly female. Why? for me its totally because the thematic of the game, even if its very ''neutral'' i guess the game's essence of playing with life and being creative when it comes to interior design which is a huge part of the game its mostly something that females are interested.

That and the fact that custom content is a huge deal in the sims , hair and fashion mostly , which is again something very close to female interest.
Also another huge aspect of that series is the social interactions, relationships and in the lastest games emotions , another thing females are mostly interested in.

Mario barely explores any of deep subjects or plays around deeper meanings so the playerbase seems very neutral for me , i have never heard someone saying Mario is for boys or Mario is for girls , but i will always hear Mario is for everybody.

All of that may sound a tad stereotypical, but it holds truth to a good extend.

When it comes to being ''represented'' in games, i just never got the appeal in that. As a gay latino man i will never get the sudden need of that. Games for me are something that are meant to escape the sad reality we live in, not to make it similar, that would make no sense to me.

I enjoy more playing games that have strong and fun female leads, which is what appeals me the most like in fighting games like Soul Calibur i would play as Cassandra or in the Samurai Warriors games my favorite is Inahime
And when it comes to Mario , Daisy irks me to no end since she is a walking contradiction and Peach is a big steretype ... so i go with the best female character, we know who that is.

and When it comes to youtubers, i watch packattack04082 , nintenU and those youtubers that post early gameplays of Mario games and do full walkthroughts without commentary. Aside from that i watch others but they arent from Mario.

Mario in a dress?
you ask well Mcmadness

you don't know how long I wanted to see Mario in a dress in the games :)

well I'm for representation (and there's the whole debate on media reflecting life and life reflecting media worth considering) and I could've sworn I've seen an article on the benefits of having a good representation of sexual minorities, gender minorities, racial minorities just recently
