Question Just started a gaming youtube channel.

I decided to make videos in the middle of my previous exams. And now I have 2videos. The reason why I wanted to start is because my father stood always in the way of my dreams (playing soccer, playing the piano,...) I watch gaming videos on youtube for 5years now. And while I was learning for an exam I came to the thought that I wanted to achieve Something in my childhood.

Now I started I take everything professional, I try my best to atleast have some viewers that come back with every upload. I don't want to become famous! I only want to make new friends all over the world...

If you have anymore advice that I don't already know, I'll take it with much care !!! Thanks for reading

I really like your videos! The Pokemon Red one was neat! I'm happy that you can finally make videos and do what you want. That's pretty exciting.

I'm also a pretty big fan of Messi too. I was actually gonna comment on your username but I didn't want to seem stupid though.

The thing about YouTube is, there are so many gaming channels that it's not even funny. I think it is safe to say that is the biggest genre of video on YouTube. Sticking out from the crowd is going to be very, very difficult. This isn't to discourage you, as you should pursue your interests, but you have to keep this in mind going in. There are a sea of gamers on YouTube. You have to find something that will make you stick out.

Some people use really flashy editing and stylized visuals.
Others use humor.
Still others have really informative, documentary style vids.

Also, it's all about the approach. There are tons of people who do game reviews, rants, and opinion pieces and whatnot, but another approach is people who focus on Game Betas (Yuriofwind, Beta64, etc.) or Retrospectives with behind the scenes information and trivia on the franchise or console (TheGamingHistorian, The Nostalgic Gamer). Or some people just cover certain brands (Mystic, who exclusively covers PlayStation reviews and news; Da Kid, who covers Nintendo reviews and news, etc.

Cliches to avoid:
The "Angry" or "I don't really wanna review this but I guess I'll do it for you guys" shtick. (aka AVGN, Nostalgia Critic, or their clones)
Super flashy, ADHD style (modern JonTron, Caddy, PeanutButterGamer, etc.) - some people really like these guys and that's fine. I just find them mostly flash and little substance. Presentation is one thing but these videos take it a bit too far in my opinion.

You just have to find what works for you. Best of luck.

Thanks for ALL the advice you just gave me, Brandyn! I already considered that I probably won't become big, but I'm already happy if I make new friends on my path. For now I highly edit my videos and I'm still a tiny bit nervous. But that will become all fine! I thought that the idea of my channel was pretty fresh. So I hope that will benefit me a bit in the future. I will only make videos if I have fun while doing it. I also know most of the youtubers you wrote about.

I think you did a good amount of editing, and it didn't take anything away or make you seem like you're trying too hard either
