Majority of YouTube Gamers are just downright SCUM now, especially GTAV ones, they steal information from websites like this, claim bullsh*t like they found it, of course we always get that f*cking pathetic money begging chant "DON'T FORGET TO LIKE, RATE, COMMENT AND SUBSCRIBE!", because they're life is so pathetic all they do is make YouTube videos about rumours, lies and exploits just to get some form of attention to their "channel", it's just downright f*cking annoying to see this is what's become of YouTube gaming videos now, you can't even click on a stunt montage without the first words you see being "PLEASE LIKE!", when did these gamers become such needy little emotional wrecks who constantly need to define their worth by the amount of likes or subscribers they have?

Thank f*ck we still have the likes of DasBoSchitt and JonTron around to at least keep me sane.

This depends, do you mean the old school ones? GTASeriesVideos? Pretty much widley agreed the most helpful and informative channel regarding R*'s games and known for their actual love of it. GTAmissions? BJ is a good guy and is also pretty helpful. Mod show casers I  like, especially since I can't run half of them. 


In terms of the new wave of band-wagoners who came to GTA V shortly after release and use cheap videos for their own sanctification? The ones that attract an 'audience' by showcasing exploits that ruin the game and waste Rockstar's time by making them clean up?


I think taltigolt summed it up in his YouTube video about modders perfectly...


Yes I know ironic that a YouTube video is my argument against Youtubers...

I want to state that YouTubers who upload money exploits and glitches are the worst type. Same sh*tty dubstep intro, begs for likes the first 20-50 seconds, and worst steal content from here or reddit (like teddy and dom) and don't give proper credit.

GTAmissions was around for a long time so I kinda give him a pass, along with GTASeriesvideos because they don't have annoying commentary or begging for likes like a street orphan begs for food. But yeah, all the other ones are cancerous.

In my opinion, GTA V YouTubers were at their prime during the year and a half or so prior to the game's release. They were running off of hype, and people simply loved to watch their speculations, or their analyzations of new screen shots and trailers whenever they would so rarely come out. Everyone was just so hungry for new information back then, it was very magical and I get subtle hints of nostalgia from the pre-release hype every now and again.

I would watch these YouTubers' videos everyday, getting caught up in the magic of all the speculation and rumors. This was my favorite part about GTA V - the 2 years of hype and wonder leading up to it's release.

Unfortunately, once the game was finally released, a lot of these 'news and speculation' YouTubers fell out of the spotlight due to obvious reasons, and are now just trying to keep up in the world of all these "NEW GLITCH BRO" douchebags.

Liked these guys:


But that was before I could play online myself, and before I saw their other vids.

Then I started to find them profoundly annoying.

I think it's quite insulting to consider RoosterTeeth / Achievement Hunter 'YouTubers'



Well, as far as I'm concerned, anyone that has more than 100k views on most their vids qualifiy as a "youtuber", despite my or anyone else's opinion of them.

AH pretty much does the best and earns what they make from views. Videos are excellently well produced and edited and actually give players things to do rather than show glitches and "leak" info. Easily Distracted is probably one of the funniest ones yet, along with Merica and the Free Plays

I dont hate the fact that they commentate their vids (even though most of them seem to have awkward fetishes for their voices) Its the fact that they're not true GTA fans and they talk down to others like they're royalty for having more than 1k subs. Most of them used to play CoD and got V because it went viral when it hit the markets. Now they're posting videos with misleading titles, boring gameplay (check Teddys latest vids, its just him and his friend shooting at a fence. I sh*t you not), or they're just sometimes cringeworthy because their army of 12 year olds bite into the sh*t theyre throwing out for money.

"Hheeeyyyyyyy.. whatsgoingonguysim DomIsLive anddd todayyyy wehaveanotherpointlessgtavid... before we start the video please like share subscribe and suck my cock cause i want money. So today we found a snapmatic photo of a titan.... Possible titan dlc incoming? Most likely because I couldve sworn i saw a titan today. So thanks for watching join the dom army and like favorite subscribe FU*K YOU"

Since I was insulted by some assholes that stole things from my thread back in 2012 when I corrected their wrong information quoting me, I don't care with any of those video creators that basically steal everything and make it as their own discoveries and annoy people with the "subscribe and like" ... well I do whatever I want If I like I click like if not I won't, the same goes for the subscription. Every time I see an idiot like those begging for that and even if I liked the video I dislike it and don't subscribe it.

This current generation of video creators and website hosters of copy-pasted information without even giving credit to the original sources is a disease that filled the Internet with industrial quantities of garbage. YOUTUBE is no longer about sharing is about who gets more views and subscribers to make money which makes the creations bad and annoying. The best videos for me about V are the ones of guys like BenBuja which were are funny and very creative, or guys that make tutorials explaining how people can do some things playing clean... everything else is crap.

I once saw Let's Play from GTA V and the guy was like "Oh I think we can steal this car" or "I hope police can chase us!" .. Come one, It's Grand Theft Auto.

I hate the likes of DomisLive, Icrazyteddy and such as they just show glitches on their channel. What i am wondering is that how did they escape the "ban hammer", there is clear video proof that they are doing glitches and such but they do not get banned. Just because they buy a bunch of shark cards, rockstar doesnt act upon them and ban em or something. Also they clearly boarded the bandwagon on gta v as its evident they mostly have no prior knowledge of previous gta games. I do not mind vanoss nor speedy or anyone else like that as they are not showcasing glitches. Also Icrazyteddy was bumming that gta modder guy who deserves to be banned from gta too. Then they use the petty excuse " oh we are just showing rockstar so they can patch em " which is pathetic as they could email it or make it private and post a link but they are only in it for the money. e.g. i dont see much expression/emotion in their voices either.

GTA Youtubers are fine as long as they don't make any videos on exploiting the game.

Eh, I hate most of them. Apart from VanossGaming. He only posts funny montages and stuff which is nice to see someone enjoying themselves while playing, instead of making glitch videos.

YouTube/Google need to permanently wipe their servers of these trashy channels. GTA Series Videos, GTAmissions and Ben Buja are the only reliable channels in my opinion.

A gta youtuber that doesn't beg for likes and has 110k subs? That's a first.
