Who Are The Best Youtube Gaming Celebrities?

In the world of YouTube it’s hard to not get lost in the thousands upon thousands of channels, well I’m here to show you a few necessary gamers that you may or may not have already subscribed to. Over the years gamers have went in and out of popularity, due to various reasons. But there are a few that we just can’t get enough of. The ones that we always connect to, never fail to make us laugh, or always have something interesting to say. Check out these guys!


PewDiePie in a spotlight from 2015.   

Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, or as you may know him, PewDiePie has been the most popular YouTube channel for quite some time. You may wonder how a gamer could earn such a title, but there is a very good reason. He’s funny and entertaining! This Swedish comedian represents the classic dream. After dropping out of college, he was unable to receive any support to focus on his YouTube channel. He worked his way through early productions by working at a hotdog stand, and a couple of years later, he became the most subscribed channel on YouTube. This just shows us that with determination and passion, you can achieve your dreams one way or another…so keep playing video games!

Ian and Anthony just being themselves.

Ian Andrew Hecox and Daniel Anthony Padilla are the duo known as Smosh. Over the years they have paired up with many other actors and YouTubers on their channel, but the original duo are who make up Smosh. The diversity they add is what really makes them so entertaining to us, the viewers. Most of us have heard of Smosh, but did you know that they started out as a simple website of flash animations?  Later they began their journey by lip syncing to their favorite nerd themes. They took what we all do in private and shared it with the world, making uber -mega-bucks. In 2015, they even created a Science-Fiction comedy movie, Smosh: The Movie, which also featured some of our other favorite YouTube gamers.
