There's a huge collection of this type of content and it has no problem of being monetized.
One thing though, you can't really know if a channel is monetized or not. Youtube shows ads everywhere now.

monetized or non-monetized channels have ads so you can't really tell aside from Youtube being so greedy now LOL

Some people just want to see some gameplay, raw. I don't think there are many like that, but still.

what is your point? it is content, there is no rule that it needs to have a face/editing/voiceover..

Yea, but no face, no voiceover, no commentary. Just a gameplay.
gameplay doesn't get banned, even it has no face, vo or commentary. another sample is cooking channel that has no face, no voice, no commentary. or hydraulic press channel. they are all content. so why should youtube ban it.

YouTube has no issue with this type of game. It's not the first time someone will be in wonderland as to why YouTube does something. However, no one outside understands their game better than them

Usually, a video gets banned or demonetized if it's stolen content or content the creator doesn't own without it being transformed with at least some narration or commentary or other things to make the video their own and to provide some type of original value to the viewer.

If you're just uploading yourself playing a game with nothing transformed over it there's nothing against that and YouTube will allow you to monetize it.

these days youtube cracks down on a lot of non commentary gameplay channels.
but you can still have channels without commentary monetized.
i cannot give you any guarantee but sometimes youtube accepts it and allows you to stay monetized without issues.

like there are so many HD pc gameplay channels that have no issues for long.

youtube wont ban it but they can demonetize it.

gameplay without commentary is not transformed.
youtube usually rejects it unless your content is special.

probably, just they sometimes ban slideshow video and sometimes not. here's one case about commentary video.


in this case they said that as long as the montage is yours, you don't need to add commentary or physical appearance. but if the montage is from someone else, you need to add value into the video before reuploading it.

adding value is what i meant by "unless your content is special"

there are people who do plain basic gameplays and get rejected or demonetized like the channel described in ops post.

without adding enough value and doing plain gameplay is at risk of demonetization.

adding value can come in the form of transfromative editing, modded gameplays, cinematic gameplays, montages with transformative editing etc.
such cases wont need commentary as there is enough value added

that channel has value, he's good in FPS game, and only play FPS game, he's also game developer and developing modded weapon in steam.

the reason why youtube not allowing 'no commentary video' is because it's tend to be used by spammer to create junk content and upload it to milking money. channel that has value, engaging with their viewer, etc. won't get demonetized. every rules that youtube create, it is because some blackhatters that try to milking fast money from youtube, and then youtube saw it, and implement new rules. so as long as youtube didn't see you as spammer, and think you're legit person that only want to upload your own game montage, and people love it. there's no reason for youtube to demonetized you.

yes but you can still get falsely demoentized for which you need to re apply.
you can even get rejected with original content or get falsely demonetized with content that has narration plus stock footage used, there are cases of that.
you can check wengthemengs thread.
thats the mistake of bots.

this channel op showed is in borderline risk of demonetization.

being good in an fps game is not adding value to the content.
or atleast yt has no way to know that.
you can post in google support and check if being skilled in a game and having no commentary is adding enough value.

people modding games usually add something to their description to show the type of mods they used and their work.

adding value comes in form of the content.

there are people who are skilled in game and show no commentary gameplay who get demonetized.
lots of pubg and free fire gamers face this.
being skilled in game is not enough.

playing a game with skills over extended periods of time showing the use of software without adding educational or transformative value is not enough.

your sample isn't relatable. even top10 videos with hard editing can be demonetized. you can also see this in weng's thread, even some of his client got demonetized for this.

and btw, some game give commercial license for the user, IF THE GAME DOESN'T GIVE COMMERCIAL LICENSE, then you SHOULD do commentary.

whatever you and I said, the fact is that channel keep uploading no commentary videos (even put that as title), and get monetized.

if he's demonetized, he won't upload more content anymore, or start doing stream or commentary videos.

while that is the case and i do agree that if the game publisher allows you to monetize, that you can monetize.

the only issue is a lot of non commentary gameplay channels are getting demonetized, even where the publisher grants commercial rights.

many people complaining on support forums.

wengthemengs case with hard editing i have seen demonetization cases too.
cashcow channels.
thats like what i mentioned false demonetizations.

same can be with the case of publishers who grant rights.
false flags.

but issue is too many people with this case are getting demonetized and from my personal experience, i was trying to get monetized with no commentary gameplay channels, and most cases were rejections, even on games where the publisher gave rights.

on the other hand trying with facecam commentary gameplay had 99% approval rate.

even when i tried to join an MCN network with such content, they had a look at the channel and said that i am not adding enough value and i must do commentary or transformative editing.

again main issue is false flags, but im seeing too many cases of non commentary gameplay channels getting rejected or demonetized.
