As the world’s second-largest platform for watching video game content behind Twitch, YouTube Gaming has seen its audience and the number of content creators skyrocket in the past years. Today, the top gaming YouTubers have hundreds of millions of subscribers who have watched their videos tens of billions of times. However, one name stands out.
According to data presented by SafeBettingSites.com, PewDiePie is still the absolute king of YouTube Gaming, with almost 29 billion lifetime views.
The World’s No.1 Gaming YouTuber, Despite Stagnant Growth
The world’s highest-paid Gaming YouTubers earn millions of dollars through subscriptions, advertising, and brand sponsorships. Some of them made a few million before even turning 20, which is no surprise since their subscribers are counted in tens of millions. Still, no name is even close to PewDiePie, despite his channel experiencing stagnant growth.
According to Social Blade data, the popular YouTuber has accumulated almost 29 billion views on his channel, more than Fernanfloo and Mikecrack combined, while maintaining its audience at 111 million subscribers since December 2021.
Fernanfloo has the second most-popular channel on YouTube Gaming, with 45.7 million subscribers as of last week, or less than half PewDiePie’s audience, while his videos hit 10.2 billion lifetime views.
Mikecrack follows Fernanfloo with 37.1 million subscribers, but his videos have 5.2 billion more total views.
Statistics show Total Gaming has the third most-popular YouTube Gaming channel counting 34.6 million subscribers and 5.3 billion lifetime views as of last week. An American gamer-commentator, Markiplier, rounds the top five names with the same number of subscribers but with a much larger 19.7 billion lifetime views.
Although far behind the top five gaming YouTubers in the number of subscribers, Jacksepticeye has the third most-watched channel. The Social Blade data show the Irish YouTuber hit 15.9 billion lifetime views last week, the third highest number behind PewDiePie and Markiplier.
PewDiePie has the Seventh Most-Subscribed YouTube Chanel
Besides leading the chart of the most subscribed and watched gaming YouTubers, PewDiePie ranks high on the list of Top 50 YouTubers.
According to Social Blade data, with 111 million subscribers, PewDiePie has the seventh most-subscribed YouTube channel in the world.
India’s largest music label and movie studio, T-Series, still holds the number-one spot with 238 million subscribers. YouTube Movies follow, with 163 million subscribers, respectively.
