YouTube is truly a mega platform that brings together people of every single niche — and gamers are thriving on it like never before!

We’ve rounded up the top seven YouTube gamers who are making the platform a much livelier place with their unparalleled skills and vibrant personalities. Are you looking for some fresh YouTube gaming content? Get ready to hit that subscribe button – let’s see who made the list!

Andre Rebelo “Typical Gamer” | @typicalgamer

From Fortnite to Minecraft and Grand Theft Auto 5, this YouTube gamer has proven that he’s truly a skilled professional to be reckoned with! “Typical Gamer” currently has a whopping 11.8 million subscribers on his channel, making him one of the world’s most popular and influential figures in the gaming industry.

On Instagram, you’ll find that he shares everything under the sun like epic gameplays, cute Corgi puppies, and very shiny sports cars. There are clearly a ton of reasons to follow Typical Gamer.

Jack Dunlop “CouRage” | @couragejd

“CouRage” has come a long way since his days as an intern at the Major League Gaming Corporation. He has since participated in the Fortnite World Cup, was featured in Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber’s music video for Stuck with U, and raised over $1.5 million through a live stream for COVID-19 relief! We love influencers who give back to the community!

Also, this YouTube gamer just recently became a co-owner of the elite gaming organization and lifestyle brand, 100 Thieves.

Rachell Hofstetter “Valkyrae” | @valkyrae

The “Queen of YouTube” is here — and her name is “Valkyrae”! She is the platform’s most-watched female streamer of 2021 and has quite a few impressive awards up her sleeve. In 2020, she was named “Content Creator of the Year” at The Game Awards. The following year, Valkyrae was honoured by the Adweek Creator Visionary Awards as “Gaming Creator of the Year.” 

This groundbreaking YouTube gamer, who’s making waves as an Among Us player, is also proudly the co-owner of 100 Thieves alongside fellow gamer CouRage JD. 

Avery Lopriore “Avxry” | @avxry

Early on in his career, “Avxry” first started out playing Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty. It was when he started playing Fortnite that he began to skyrocket to gamer stardom!

The YouTube Gamer describes himself as “just a guy looking to entertain an audience”— and he clearly has succeeded at this mission! Streaming exclusively on the YouTube platform,  Avxry has amassed over 2.26 million subscribers, whom he never fails to entertain with incredible Fortnite gameplay content. 

Jimmy Donaldson “Mr. Beast” | @mrbeastgaming

To say that “Mr. Beast” is a YouTube legend would be a complete understatement. Before he got into streaming gaming content in 2020, he was already one of YouTube’s most popular personalities. Currently, his main Mr. Beast account is the platform’s 12th most-subscribed YouTube channel at 64.6 million!

On his gaming channel of 19.4 million subscribers, he shares content on various games such as Minecraft, GTA 5, and Fortnite

Warning: Mr. Beast’s hilarious energy is incredibly contagious. 

Herschel Beahm IV “Dr. DisRespect” | @drdisrespect

“Dr. Disrespect” isn’t just one of the most recognized YouTube gamers — he’s also a bonafide entertainer! Known for his signature look composed of a black mullet wig, sunglasses, and a fake mustache, he’s taking streaming to a whole new level thanks to the theatrical persona he takes on. His uniqueness has earned him various awards, including “Streamer of the Year” at the eSports Industry Awards in both 2017 and 2019. 

On YouTube, you’ll usually find him sharing Warzone and Valorant content with his 3.41 million subscribers.  

Ali Hassan “SypherPK” | @sypherpk
