I imagine there were a lot of people on YouTube you followed before GamerGate who you just don’t anymore. I never followed TotalBiscuit because I’m not a PC gamer, and I haven’t seen enough of his content pre-GG to make any judgments. I never followed Angry Joe; he just wasn’t funny, insightful, or saying anything someone else didn’t say better. His recent actions with Nintendo reveals he’s willing to do something he knows the result of, and act surprised when exactly what he expected to happen, happens.
If the usual big names are getting dull, or you just outright don’t trust them anymore, I have a few suggestions to offer as an alternative. I don’t know any of these people personally, I’m just a fan.
The reason I like SFO over several of the pro-GG channels that popped up on radar is the Ppro-GG element of their channel is only a small part of their channel. At their heart, SFO is all about Let’s Plays. Granted, they do have some of the best GG coverage thanks to Cameralady, but those videos are far and few in between due to the extensive research that goes into them.
If you want some funny content, give them a click. They review anime as well, and have a policy of providing full receipts of purchases made with Patreon funding.
A friend recommended I check out Hayesenberg, and while much of his content is very similar to MundaneMatt or Sargon of Akkad, he infuses it with his own personal charm. What i really enjoyed the most was how late he is to the party. This makes it feel like he’s his own character in a fish out of water plot, learning exposition as his audience does.
While I think his SJW deconstruction lacks the bite of Sargon, he does an admirable job and deserves a look at the very least.
If I’m being 100 percent honest with you, I’d tell you how awesome this channel is. Their satire is so spot on, sometimes I doubt its even satire. Gaming Wildlife: pointing out the painfully obvious.
The hamster in a man suit’s videos are in the moment, maddeningly inconsistent, and occasionally drunk. However, any man who talks about horror is a man after my heart.
Orichalcum Road taught me a completely different way of looking at horror. He explained that horror is about the feeling of being uncomfortable, and how that correlates with GG’s opponents and SJWs’ attempts to remove anything that makes them uncomfortable.
With all of the faults and whether or not you like the approach of venting in front of the camera while the thought is fresh, he’s insightful and explains horror in a different way than I’ve ever heard.
While he doesn’t focus solely on games, if you’re a fan of horror, he’s a must watch. He’ll make you proud to be call a shitlord.
Full disclosure, I’ve been following Razorfist since he only had nine thousand subscribers, and I have a slight man-crush on him. I became a fan when he was kicked off GameTrailers years ago for very questionable reasons.
Razorfist has been talking about games journalistic malpractice years before it was as fashionable as he is. His first video in the series “The Downfall of Gaming Journalism” was published March 7, 2013. That’s not a typo: this predates the Quinnspiracy by a year and a half.
He has a love for movie machismo, comics, and all things French with a razor sharp wit. The Rageaholic is consistently hilarious, and the coolest nerd on YouTube. He doesn’t shy away from a fight, whether it’s with the Amazing Atheist or MovieBob, who he roasted on a spit like a pig.
I love him, you’ll love him. God Fucking Speed!
