Best Obscure YouTube Channels for Gamers in 2018

Writing On Games

Of all the channels in this list, I might be most partial to this one. But I'm also a sucker for stuff like this. 

Writing on Games is a channel dedicated to -- as they put it -- "in-depth analysis and opinion pieces on games, their designs and their narratives." Here, gamers can find the occasional review and discussions on the industry, gaming history, genres, and a variety of things we often take for granted when we sit down for some play time.

Unlike other gaming review and analysis channels, Writing on Games is doesn't go the "angry gamer" route -- although they're not afraid to tell you what they think.

For the most part the videos consist of relaxing narration layered over gameplay. And the videos are typically pretty short, coming in at around 10 minutes. So it's easy to get a quick listen in between other activities. 

But, maybe that's too much talking for you right now and you'd just like to watch some gameplay without having to listen to anyone's voice. I totally get that, so this next channel might be for you... particularly if you're a Nintendo fan.
