Hello! Ahh it feels good to blog again!
Now if it isn't obvious, I'm a bit of a gamer myself, and often find relief from stress while playing them, especially first-person shooter types, puzzles, or even hidden object-type games. It was an obvious decision, then, to browse the internet for fellow crazy gamers like myself (ehemm, crazy?).
In the past 2 years, I've been hooked to YouTube, specifically "Let's Play" users. Somehow, I find delight in watching people playing games and raging, getting annoyed, or just enjoying the game, no matter how hilarious it is. So today, I'll be listing my Top 5 YouTube Gaming personalities! Yay!
Note: These are listed in the order I found out about them.
Okay, okay, so it seems weird that all the gamers on my list are guys. The thing is, there are extremely few female gamers out there, which has often made me think about creating a channel of my own gameplay videos. I haven't come around to the decision yet, but the more I watch them, the more I want to try it out.
Without further ado, my Top 5 Gamers!

So there I was, browsing YouTube with my brother one fine weekend, when we stumbled upon a gameplay of NBA2K11, obviously a basketball-based game. During this time, we were also playing the same game on the PC, and were curious enough to want to see another person playing it.
As we started watching, I took notice of the mellow, inviting tone his voice had. His commentaries were just right, and he didn't use foul words in his videos. Also, during his gameplay of Call of Duty and Last of Us, he seemed so much into the game that I couldn't help but be engrossed in it as well.
He also has his own "smoove jargon", like the ever awesome "smoove move" and terms like "cuh", "give that guy a manual", and the popular "spla-a-a-a-a-sshhh", among others. One of the gameplays I very much enjoyed was The Last of Us and The Walking Dead, though his recent videos are just as competitive.
Toby, ah, yes, the "Happy Wheels" guy. No, we don't call him that, but it was through the game "Happy Wheels" that I got around to discovering this guy. From what I've seen in his videos, he gets a kick out of getting frustrated. Haha. Seriously though, he's a heck of a gamer.
Of course, the first video my brother and I saw was a Happy Wheels one, though I forgot the title. I just remembered looking at this gorgeous guy wearing headphones and getting all frustrated about dying at a Happy Wheels game. The rest is history.
Aside from Happy Wheels, he also gameplays other cool games like Call of Duty, Halo, Assassin's Creed, and a lot more. I've always wondered how he got to his routine end remarks, "Bless your face...if you sneeze, then the city will bless you...". Hahaha. Visit his channel!
THIS GUY. What can I say? I'm totally hooked to his videos. They are freaking HILARIOUS and downright entertaining. When this guy rages, he RAGES. I've heard some of the best in-game jokes from his gameplays, and the things he does are just so catchy! He's gameplayed a lot of games including Just Dance, Happy Wheels, Beyond: Two Souls, and a LOT of indie games.
With the amount of videos I've watched from him, I'm finding it difficult to remember which game I first watched from him, though it might have been Amnesia, which he's totally popular for. One of the reasons why he's possibly the reason I go on YouTube these days is that he makes horror games comedic and turns funny games into killer one-liners.
Admittedly, his good looks alone could've earned him the 15 million plus subscribers he has now, but thanks to his funny bone and hilarious commentaries, he's earned them just as much. His "bros" and the traditional "brofist" he gives at the end of his videos have become his trademark, which is also one of the reasons why I find him awesome. His segment "Fridays with Pewdiepie" are also worth watching.
There's just too much I can say about the dude! Check out his channel to see what all the fuss is about!
One of the craziest (I mean, wild "crazy") people on this list. The first video I ever watched was his VLOG, "What is it like to be Black" and his video about KFC closing down (which turns out as an apocalyptic event since his whole family supposedly LOVES KFC). It's also been fun watching him play incredibly easy games which turn out to be nothing close to easy. More like frustrating.
The only thing that isn't really comfortable about this guy is that he swears a whole freaking lot. I can't give his channel for my dad to watch no matter how funny it is, and that goes for PewDiePie's videos as well. However, their total goofiness make up for it. KSI has been on my "to-watch daily" lists ever since I subscribed.
I guess the funniest gameplay I've seen of him is that of the Slender series and a little Amnesia. No matter how funny is gameplays are though, his VLOGs are always a hundred times funnier. Do you know he also created his version of the Harlem Shake?
Finally, we have the most mysterious dude on the list: Cry. I'm not even sure if he IS that guy above though I searched Google over and over and that image kept appearing. He always has a mask on, and fanarts about him depict him the same way. His fans no doubt want to see his face but he has said that if he showed his face, the air of mystery will be gone.
A lot of fan fictions have been written about him, one going as far as saying that when Cry was born, his face was supposedly too handsome that it blinded the doctors who were present. Since his looks were blinding, he had to wear a mask for the rest of his life. Talk about fans and the element of mystery.
The thing is, he has a really nice voice, which suits his commentaries. It sounds really, really cute. He has fun in his videos and has an established fan-fic between him and Russ, which fans totally adore. On a side note, if that picture is really Cry... well.
