Best Obscure YouTube Channels for Gamers in 2018

1 of 9

When it comes to finding fresh -- and good -- content on YouTube, it can be a bit daunting. This is especially true of video games, which everyone seems to hit upon at some point or another for a quick boost in viewers.  But a lot of these people aren't really all that fun to watch.

If you're anything like me, you probably find a lot of channels to follow on YouTube either through the system's suggested stuff, which can be iffy at best or via your friends, who tend to be more reliable in suggesting things you like.

There's just one problem with this. YouTube (and often our friends) like to suggest channels that are already extremely popular, because obviously none of us have ever heard of that guy with millions of followers. So, a lot of other really good channels with solid followings that just don't make the follower count cut can be overlooked.

Since we've been pondering this, it occurred to us that it might actually be helpful if we compiled a list of some of the somewhat more obscure game-centric YouTube channels that are worth a watch. Keep in mind that when we're using "obscure" a bit loosely here. On average the channels in this list have about 100k followers. That's nothing to sneeze at, but they deserve more.

So, you might wonder what requirements we used to pick out these channels. Well, aside from subscriber number we looked at how entertaining the channels actually are. We also made sure they've uploaded content recently. There's nothing worse than finding a new channel you really like and discovering it's inactive.

As a more or less personal goal, I've tried to avoid making every channel listed here Fortnite or Minecraft related, my goal is to offer a nice variety of channel suggestions.

Now, with that addressed, let's get down to the actual list!
