Anything is better then PewDiePie

Actually wait scrap that...sorry his fans are worse then him.

I don't get the hate for him. Sure he's not my favorite YouTuber, but there's a reason he's so big. Obviously 30+ million subscribers like him.

"but there's a reason he's so big"

Want to know why

Back when Youtube was still young and before we had all the other Youtubers we see today we had PewDiePie

Since he was one of the first gaming focused videos on that site Youtube it gained some attention, when you are one of a bunch of videos specifically aimed at a hobby like gaming it will cause attention so Youtube used to promote him on the front page BECAUSE the more viewers he got the more they would get paid aswell.

Basically Youtube would benefit from him as they discovered back then

They promoted and promoted, people subscribed and PewDiePie and Youtube got paid a shit load.

But yeah, with that in mind, his success comes down to one thing...he got lucky since at the time Youtube was so young. He basically signed up and did his videos at the right place at the right time. At the end of the day he's not really popular for the right reasons, just luck. If he came onto the Youtube of today he would be nothing.

There are plenty of other Youtubers out there who hardly have any attention but are better then PewDiePie

There was a really good article on this somewhere online but I can't find it now...really good well thought out stuff.


Found a good video on it...not the same but it still gets the point across.

PewDiePie is pretty bad but nothing can be worse then DSP

I can't believe people still watch him, it's awful. At least PewDiePie actually puts some work into his content (I guess). Seriously, 2014 and he still records with a potatoe

@ Snookies12

What -Foxtrot said. He'a a YouTube whore, with like 10 different channels.
Also he's annoying as hell. Making a stupid voice and screaming get's old after the first video.

he manages to get his name out there and google search engine works based on popularity which is why he remains on top.

i didn't even know who the guy was which shows how out of touch i am. i was looking for a walkthrough on youtube on alien isolation because i couldnt find a door right in front of my eyes on the floor.

the guy was funny for about 5 minutes and then i couldn't take it anymore but whenever i look up games he's usually at the top of the list. since most of us are lazy we just click the first one and presto, he stays on top. now i know to look further.

Man, I've been thinking this whole season that they should do YouTube commentators. This is going to be epic... I hope they have some appearances.
