He allows himself to let loose and feel genuine fear during his gameplay, and this makes his content super entertaining.

10. PatStaresAt 

You may have seen Pat as one part of the YouTube gaming channel, Super Best Friends. 

If Pat looks/sounds familiar to you, then you may recognize him from his many videos with his fellow gamer counterparts, Matt (MatthewMcMuscles) and Woolie (WoolieVersus).

With their passion for gaming in common, the three of them formed a brotherhood of sorts. 

However, the trio announced their split in 2018 and have focused on their solo careers.
