    Hey BHW,

    I have a gaming channel on YouTube that I've been running for around 3 years. It's been built around Minecraft content, but I now despise that game and don't want to make videos on it.

    I've tried doing gameplay videos of other games, but they just don't receive the success that my other Minecraft videos have.

    So, my dilemma being I don't enjoy making minecraft videos & other videos don't recieve much support, what should I do?

    I'm at the point now where I feel like giving up on the channel.

    If anyone wants to look at some of the videos, here's a link to my channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/HOMELESSRYDER

    & yes, I understand that over 3 months of inactivity doesn't help the channel. I just haven't felt "inspired" to make any fresh content.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is this a real thread? Or just a try to get some views on your channel and website?
    I looked up what youtube "minecraft success" you're talking about.
    The views are low and you bought subscribers, didn't you?

    If you don't feel like doing videos for other games and not for minecraft... what advise do you want?

    I'm sorry, but are you stupid? I wouldn't be posting a link here to get views on a gaming channel because I highly doubt that I'd get any HR, targeted views. You'd want to go to a gaming forum for something like that.

    Second, no there's not bought views or subs on my channel. "Minecraft success" doesn't translate into millions of views. I view any videos getting over 10,000 views in such a saturated niche to be a success, and I have a bunch of those. & in my eyes, about a half a million views is not "small" when compared to most channels.

    As far as advice goes, I'm looking for something that I may be able to do to drive more subscribers to watch a video when it shows up in their sub box.

    Most gaming niches on Youtube are saturated. Minecraft is extremely hard to rank for unless you just focus on new updates/mods all the time. If you want to get out of the Minecraft niche, I would suggest trying targeting new early access games the second the come out on Steam. This is how Blitz, Draegast and a lot of other people have gotten subscribers this year. I think the best resource for info would be letsplay subreddit, Damnlag and Yttalk forums.

    Unless.. you know.. you watch porn 24/7.. or you actually hang out with women in real life

    @OP

    Reach out to other gaming youtube channels. I've seen tons of gamer channels collab

    Imagine if you did 10 collabs with ten different channels. Massive growth

    You talking about ranking via the unlisted method? Sent you a PM.
