Gaming YouTube Channels

Kids love to watch other kids (and grown-ups!) play video games, and YouTube definitely delivers on this front. From Minecraft to MMOGs (massively multiplayer online games), the ever-popular "let's play" videos let kids feel like they're competing along with their best YouTube buddies. It can be difficult to find kid-friendly gamers on YouTube, but lots of Minecraft-based channels are appropriate and fun for the whole family to watch, like DanTDM and Stampylonghead. For tweens and teens who are into action and sports games, things get a little tricky, but Markiplier and Joey Graceffa are solid options without much of the violence and profanity that YT gamers are often known for. YouTube channels have the gaming world covered, featuring tons of funny commentary and a little learning, too.
