    A good channel I've just discovered recently is Neo Turbo Maniac
    https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCvs3lhJluY4TUkVC3GzwuLA
    He does Neo Geo and TurboGrafx reviews and I think he deserves more views and subscribers.

    Recently found one called Famicom Dojo. Looks like a collab between 2 Nintendo geeks. Mostly Nintendo/Famicom related stuff. One guy is an American living in Japan, the other guy stateside and looks like Tom Green. They recently did an episode on the Famicom Data Recorder and it's really interesting and informative.

    I tried some of these channels. The Game Historian kinda reminds me of Tom Arnold.

    Here's one called Console Wars. A Genesis geek and Super Nintendo nerd compare games that were released on both systems. Nothing serious, it's silly on purpose. Some of the skits and jokes can get a bit too nonsensical at times but it's good fun. Looks like it's done with a small budget but with work and effort, and that's the charm.

    I just stumbled on Gaming History Source. They've got a series called Let's Compare, which compares various ports of classic games. Curious about what the best home version of Donkey Kong is? It's in there.

    SNES Drunk. Guy does bite-sized and straight to the point videos. No need for 30 second long intros or anything like that. He asks simple questions. Is it worth playing today and why the hype? Even though I don't really care for the system he mostly talks about, I can appreciate the quality of it and can be quite funny sometimes. He throws some Sega stuff in the mix once in a great while and I wish there was more, to be honest.

    Yeah, I like his channel a lot too.

    Forgive me if these have already been mentioned:

    ^Nice recommends. I forgot about "My Life" did they finally break away from that Rerez nonsense?

    Been awhile since I've touched this thread. Seems like it's in the wrong place now that there is a video subforum. But that's not my place to decide, doesn't really matter to me.

    Just going to make another recommendation for the channel "Cannot Be Tamed". She does some nice reviews and such on the channel. Some of the older vids can be a bit amateurish, but she's stepped up her quality significantly. Nice to get a different perspective, besides the same ole, same ole. Like ultra game nerds that think you know nothing about videogames and talk down to their audience or dudebruh jock wannabe cornballs on the hunt at flea markets. Or maybe Let's play's by screaming lunatics? Get that garbage the fuck outta here. Please. Channels like this deserve attention.

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention. Their new "red" subscription service announcement can go fuck themselves with it. You really think people have another 10 fucking dollars for another subscription thing? Such a greedy force Google is, it's getting out of hand with this company. Such fucking arrogance. I hope the more humble and smaller channels can survive but I can only imagine this will hurt them. I highly doubt any content makers are seeing any of this revenue, besides the lame partners like lets players and greedy know-it-all pat punk.

    I like the HD footage of Youtube.com/ClassicRetroG
    One of my favourite channels with new content every day.

    I was thinking the same thing, since it's just promoting videos it could be moved to the video section.

    I've really been enjoying "Original Gamer Stevie Strow". Great production values, he's clean and family friendly which I like, no tourette syndrome style outbursts and f-bombs that seem to proliferate youtube gamers lately. Plus he's done a lot of Tandy Color Computer games lately, which is my wheel house but he does a lot more than that. Highly recommended

    Retro Core's Battle of the Ports series is pretty good for port comparisons:

    Cyril Lachel of Defunct Games has a channel, basically putting his well-written articles in video form. He covers everything from classic magazines to current Steam games. Highly entertaining, not just a dude reviewing games. Not afraid to poke fun of himself either by posting old footage of his appearance on GameproTV. Constantly puts out new material and it's surprising the channel doesn't get more love.

    Rerez. The Positives and Negatives series kicks ass.
    Real collectors drive Hondas, Toyotas, Chevys, Fords, etc... not Rolls Royces.

    All great channels.
    I like Gaming Historian's stuff. He recently did a great video about the Power Glove.

    My whole thing for my channel is "commentary free gaming videos" so check that out if you think you might be interested, though I must warn you ahead of time that I am only just getting it stated again after a long hiatus so there isn't a whole lot going on at the moment, but that will surely change over the course of 2016.
