TECH TUESDAY: Five gaming YouTubers you should subscribe to

Video sharing site, YouTube boasts countless great channels.

Have you ever considered just how many game titles are released each year?

Given the vast array of topics, genres, styles and themes, it’s unlikely a person will play every single game they want to in their lifetime.

That’s the basis for the appeal of gaming YouTubers.

While finances and time constraints might prohibit one from experiencing all the titles on all the consoles, here are some worthwhile channels:


Don’t let the name fool you – the UK-based Oxbox team has plenty to offer all manner of gaming enthusiasts, from title and tech reveals, discussions, must-watch listicles (277 and counting!) and engaging let’s plays.

Mike Bettencourt

Full of energy and a font of gaming lore, Chuggaaconroy is a one-stop for let’s play videos for titles such as Legend of Zelda, Mario, Sonic, Pokemon.

Foxy Areku
