Sports gaming has always been popular on YouTube. The love for the action on the field makes an easy transition to the hearts of sports fans taking part of the action on their consoles. And, of course, with this love for sports gaming comes an interest in watching others put their skills and creativity on display through YouTube. I’ve compiled a list of specific channels who in my opinion upload the most entertaining content, while also uploading regularly and infusing degrees of personality and creativity into their series. I personally subscribe and regularly view each one of the listed channels and highly advise anyone who has a interest in sports video games checking them out. *Note- I am not interested in EA Sports Madden NFL so none of those who regularly upload that content were featured.
