YouTube published its annual list of the top videos and creators for the year. Let's start with the top videos:
  1. Netflix Is A Joke - 8:46, Dave Chappelle
  2. Mark Rober - Building the Perfect Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder
  3. SNL - First Debate Cold Open
  4. JeffreeStar - We Broke Up
  5. MrBeast - I Bought The World's Largest Firework
  6. NikkieTutorials - I'm Coming Out.
  7. Dream - Minecraft Speedrunner VS 3 Hunters GRAND FINALE
  8. NBC - Ricky Gervais' Monologue - 2020 Golden Globes
  9. Dude Perfect - Quarantine Stereotypes
  10. SomeGoodNews - Some Good News with John Krasinski - Ep 1

Meanwhile, the top creators are:
  1. MrBeast
  2. Dream
  3. ZHC
  4. SSSniperwolf
  5. Tiko
  6. Chloe Ting
  7. JoshDub
  8. The Royalty Family
  9. LazarBeam
  10. James Charles

What's notable is that five of the ten channels are aligned with gaming, and that's where games such as Fortnite, Minecraft, and Among Us come into play. This list could give creators a spark on what works (and what doesn't work).

Chime in.

    I expected to see gaming here, but 5/10?!

    My issue with the gaming niche is that most games quickly go out of style. Evergreen content probably doesn't exist there. However, if you are creating videos daily and building subscribers it may not matter much.

    Does anyone know what the watch time percentage is for all of youtube? I know where to find my watch time, but am wondering how it compares to the majority.

    Been thinking of gaming but I wonder what kind of game is best to start off with. I love playing soccer on my Pc but that's just about it

    Ricky Gervais' monologue was hilarious! Glad that did well.

    You Tube is an amazing platform. It's the first place I go when I want to learn something.

    Interesting list - is it qualitative, or based on a viewership metric? (link not working for me for some reason). Reason I ask is that were it based on the latter, my guess is there'd be more more kids entertainment/animation channels. MASSIVE genre on youtube and a leading cause of traditional tv decline for younger demographics. Could be my bias, but to me Cocomelon is the most impressive channel: the #1/#2 overall channel AND regularly a Netflix top 10 show with the same content.

    Funny, not a single one I've ever heard of or watched.
