Eight out of ten of this year’s biggest YouTube stars are gamers, according to figures released by the video sharing site, with only vloggers Zoella and ThatcherJoe having infiltrated the list of major players.
PewDiePie has once again taken the top spot. The Swedish video game commentator has held the position since December 2013 and to date has received over 6.6 billion views. His popularity has even landed him an appearance on South Park.
The most popular vlogging channel belongs to Zoella. The 24-year-old too-cute-to-boot lifestyle vlogger has become a crossover star, with her debut novel Girl Online selling nearly 80,000 copies in its first seven days of release. She has recently revealed plans to take a break from the internet, though, following criticisms over her use of a ghost writer.
