YouTube's recommended channels feature sucks. Can you guys suggest to me some of your favourite gaming YouTube channels that are mature. I'm looking for any sort of mature gaming content, presented in a mature way. For example I really like the channel rev3games. But i'm looking for channels where it's just one person who loves games and presents them in a mature way. I hate all of the dumb Minecraft/lets play channels that YouTube is over saturated with. I'm not entirely against lets plays as long as the commentator isn't screaming at me and is actually presenting me with interesting game play and commentary. I really like informative content and and background information and stuff like that.

Anyway we'll go from here i'll let you know on the suggestions what I like and dislike more.

So what mature gaming YouTube channels are you subscribed to? Any suggestions and help would be awesome!

@SomberOwl:

I got into http://www.youtube.com/user/Northernlion for a good coverage of indie games. It's mostly a one man operation but he's pretty good.

Of course, there's also http://www.youtube.com/user/EpicNameBro for all things dark souls, demon's souls and some other stuff like an insane run of cave story on hard.

I don't know, the guy Mark seems like a nice chap but he's not the most knowledgable reviewer and he usually covers up his unfamiliarity by making references to old 80s films/games. Sometimes I think he should review movies instead of games, honestly. I think I unsubscribed when he started reviewing toys. Not sure why he thought that was a good idea.

I think you may be approaching it from the wrong angle. It's not meant to be a "serious" take on game reviewing, like Giant Bomb's or any other major gaming site's, and that's I like CGR exactly for that: he doesn't take himself seriously. It's a breath of fresh air when a "reviewer" can say something nice about a game, no matter how awful it is.

@JoeyRavn: I agree.

Fair enough, he just wasn't for me! I like bad games too though! I own all versions of Rogue Warrior, for instance.

But Rogue fucking Warrior is a fucking terrific fucking game, for fuck's fuck!

I have finished that game an embarrassing amount of times... but lets not get too off-topic.

Metal Jesus Rocks. The name's dumb but the guy's awesome. He's like CollectShun Jeff but with an organized nightmare.

Has all sorts of cool videos and seems to live the dream. Play guitar, collect video games, with a wife that's into it, too.

Research Indicates did one of my favoritest LPs because he treats you like the intelligent human being that you (probably) are. Watch this, and then the following playthrough.

i hear pwediepie is hella mature

Smudboy is you want the Mass Effect series torn apart in a intelligent way. Not irate hate just inconsistencies and plot holes in the series and storytelling of all three as well as Deus Ex HR and Dragon Age 2.

I agree, let's not :P

NakaTeleeli is a really great, mature LPer (with his sometimes not-quite-as-mature friend who's on now and again).

#21 Posted by believer258 (11773 posts) -

Totalbiscuit?

I feel like when people constantly repeat the word "mature", they actually mean "an adult that uses a lot of curse words and talks about porn". You know, instead of a kid that does those same things.

Sorry, that's just me being cynical.

Totalbiscuit.

Totalbiscuit, indeed.

I also enjoy Angry Joe's channel. I know angry videogame channels may be a bit passe now, but I find this guy funny, honest and most of the times his taste agrees with mine.

You can find him here

As far as Let's Plays are concerned, the already mentioned Zemalf is good, although a bit of an acquired taste. LuckyLoremaster is good, too (both are quite slow players). My favourite is by far Veriax

Generally, if I am to watch an LP, I prefer someone that plays seriously, either roleplaying or ironmaning, rather than someone who tries to be witty or funny all the time.

If you want to watch multiplayer FPS/TPS (primarily Gears, Halo, Planetside 2 right now) arCtyC is pretty good.

#25 Posted by Phatmac (5724 posts) -

Toegoff is a great game commentator.

#26 Posted by BigDaddy81 (319 posts) -
#27 Edited by SomberOwl (649 posts) -

These are some good suggestions but i'm not really looking for lets plays more of showcasing games, game news and reflections and informative gaming related features.

@Getz: Though I did watch a bit of the Trespasser LP from research indicates and man that is some quality! Good lets play suggestion.

@believer258: I do like TotalBiscuit, he puts up a lot of content I don't care for though, such as Planetside 2 stuff and dota stuff. I watch most of his WTF is? series.

#28 Posted by jayjonesjunior (1087 posts) -

InecomCompany (CGR), AngryJoeShow, 3killabytes, simracingtonight (they review arcade games too) and Dazran303 (WiiU/CoD comentary (i hate CoD but he plays using a WiiMote which is interesting))

#29 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7614 posts) -

Totalbiscuit is pretty good. Covers a lot of games pretty indepth, without any of the goofyness or pretending to be angry.

#30 Posted by SomberOwl (649 posts) -

Any suggestions for a gaming news show, where they wrap the days news up? kind of like IGN's daily fix if you've seen that, a little more in depth though.

#31 Posted by skooks (85 posts) -

I really like Happy Console Gamer, he does some awesome series retrospectives and I generally just like the cut of his jib.

#32 Posted by gogosox82 (424 posts) -

TotalBiscuit is pretty good. I also like EpicNameBro for darksouls and demonsouls and other games as well. You can also try Northernlion. He does a lot of indie games and usually produces pretty good content.

#33 Posted by BaconGames (3358 posts) -

None of the dumb stuff I've done over the years. I'll be honest and say that I can easily make an argument and justify the content of what's there and why that's compelling, but in terms of tone and pacing you're not going to get particularly insightful or measured commentary on games. It's a take-it-or-leave-and-first-let-me-tell-you-some-things-up-front-kind-to-understand-what-you're-watching kind of thing. I think it's more about the fact that I can and am willing to do that is the important part, not that it's anything better than your average "let's shoot the shit and play these games".

SuperGreatFriend is a brilliant LPer. He plays a lot of weirdo japanese horror games, like D 1&2 and imo the best Deadly Premonition lp. He is really informative, real calm, and doesn't resort to the stock youtube video game dude screaming and cussing up a storm. He also covers Xblig games.

I used to watch Force. He does news, previews and let's plays. Kripparian is another good one, he just talks about whatever game he happens to be playing at the time.

Oh good god no. The guy is a moron who knows nothing about games, instead just choosing to mirror whatever trivial bullshit his forum of idiots seem to be currently moaning about. Not to mention the man is painfully unfunny. Hes the complete opposite of mature.

Good suggestions! The Force's Force Feed is pretty much what I was looking for.

#38 Posted by BillyTheKid (484 posts) -

http://www.youtube.com/user/phreakindee This guy reviews a lot of older PC and DOS games but I really like him. He is slower and sometimes very sarcastic. He does a ton of Sims 3 stuff for whatever reason too. Even if they do not seem to interest you watch the video his humor is very good in my opinion.

http://www.youtube.com/user/matthewpatrick13 This guy does some really cool stuff. I would not say that it is necessarily "mature" but cool and entertaining. As well as not just some dude in the dark playing slender over and over.

#39 Posted by Rave (370 posts) -

Davidr64yt is really good and has some good lets plays, he is doing a farcry 3 run right now and one of the videos was him playing poker for over an hour good stuff.

I also have to say Northernlion has become one of my favorite people to watch, he is mature and really shows off games well.

Helloween4545 is pretty good as well with alot of horror themed games.

For history of type stuff I like, all your history are belong to us, DYKgaming, and lophatjello.


For less mature content but still quality stuff I recommend yogscast, seananners, and angry joe.

#40 Posted by Zrais (144 posts) -

Thanks for all the stuff guys..found a lot of new channels to help pass the day at work.

I admit I don't follow him that much to know what goes on in his forum, so maybe you're right about that, I don't know. He does have a rather silly (which is not necessarily a bad thing) way of presenting his reviews, but because of the fact that, to me at least, he seems to not be pulling any punches when he dislikes games and to be actually using the whole range of the 10-point scale - plus, he does some collaborations with TB, which is also the reason I was reminded of him - makes him mature enough to be mentioned.

Funniness can be subjective, so I really can't argue with anyone who doesn't find him funny. Why do you say that he knows nothing about videogames, though?
