    You should try and grow followings on Twitter, Facebook, and post on Reddit. On YouTube, try interacting with other small channels that make the same videos you make.

    Yeah use Reddit that is a best way to gain viewer attention and boost over Videos.
    Get into some reddit upvote section Build an account from scratch or purchase one

    Use YouTube gaming and go live that also brings lot of attention, Post about that in relevant facebook groups.
    Use YouTube Ads if possible and optimize tags and descriptions

    heads up for reddit, ppl out there really dislike youtube links (probably cuz it's always self ads) , unless you create a really cool content.
    i managed to be on the first page of GTA only once for one video, all the other videos i posted just had hard time getting noticed.

    another important thing , you need to have a 1/10 ratio of your links vs other links , or mods will simply delete your posts.
    you can easily improve your ratio by going on r/pics r/gif r/aww and post pictures (related to those subreddit) from imgur , this will also give u lot of upvotes.
    still getting a huge amount of views on reddit is a very hard job , unless you are a well known youtuber .

    there are a lot of subreddit to post gaming, from specific for the game r/gta r/overwatch to generic ones, r/gaming also r/videos is usefull too.

    you can also try groups in google+ , it's a nice way to get few more ppl .

    Yeah you can go for that bigger subreddit or look for smaller ones too that matches your niches,
    Also as @reGun suggested don't go overboard and post only links that will get you in danger.
    Spend tie over reddit interact with members and over other posts.
