The game Minecraft is super popular and young kids want to watch people playing and explaining what he's doing and he's doing exactly that. My brother watches him and he said that he likes him because he makes it interesting to watch.
I am subscribed to a couple gaming channels on youtube, one of the people im subscribed to posts gaming videos occasionally and i watch a lot of youtube so gaming videos are just another kind i watch. they can be really funny to watch. it's not for everyone though.
My boys love to watch his videos as well. I'm still trying to figure out the fascination, so thanks for your opinion.
I think his videos are popular because they're original, interesting and funny. I follow a guy named VanossGaming who does funny moments while playing games. I follow him because some videos leave me dying of laughter.
Making funny videos makes sense, but do you watch VanossGaming videos to help you with your gameplay, or simply because it is entertaining?
I think he is popular because he is creative. His videos also make people laugh at the same time as teaching them something about minecraft. I think that also once a lot of people know about them they will just become more and more popular because people who like them will tell others.
I am not following any gamers on youtube because I don't play video games very much.
It is amazing how with some creativity, good word of mouth advertising and a ton of YouTube views can make someone living in his parents home a millionaire. I think you are right, his creativity is likely what separates him from other gamers who post videos online.
As has been said in prior posts he is very creative in his work, and he makes it entertaining.
Having just now watched one of his videos I can honestly say it was quite entertaining.
One thing that is nice is that he doesn't curse, which I notice many Gaming Channels do.
I am subscribed to several gaming channels but I only actually pay any attention to a couple.
Excellent point Christian. The fact he keeps his commentary clean, means that parents are less likely to keep their kids from watching, and it speaks to his intelligence, that he doesn't need to swear.
Like other posts have said, he is creative and funny in his videos, making people want to watch more videos from him. This makes him popular.
I don’t follow any gamers on YouTube; I would rather play the game than watch someone else play it. I only watch walkthroughs which help me get past difficult parts in the games I play.
I think that Dan Middleton’s videos are popular because of his creativity and expertise in Minecraft. Also he makes his content kid friendly, and therefore the majority of his subscribers are between 5 and 10 years old. I do not subscribe to any gaming channels, because I don’t really play any video games. However even if I did play video games, I wouldn't subscribe to any gaming channels, in my opinions that would take away the fun of playing the game.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
