If you want to be a gaming YouTuber, it’s important to understand how games work. It’s also helpful to record your gameplay and add commentary so that viewers can learn more about what makes your game special. But don’t worry if this is all new territory for you—we’ll go through each step as we prepare ourselves for the future of gaming!
Learn the mechanics of your game
The first thing you need to know is the rules of your game. If you’re playing a shooter, for example, it’s important that you understand how ammunition works and what guns can do in different situations. If there are any special abilities or moves that affect gameplay (like wall-running), practice them until they’re second nature.
Even if your game doesn’t have any complex mechanics like these ones, learning about them will help keep everything organized in your head when creating content for YouTube videos or streams!
Record your gameplay (with commentary)
This is the most important part of becoming a gaming YouTuber. You need to record your gameplay and add commentary to it, so that viewers can follow along with what’s going on in the game.
The best way to record your gameplay is through either streaming software or by using an app like Twitch TV Desktop for Windows 11/10/8/7 (or even macOS). If you have a PC computer, this will be much easier than using one of those consoles because it’s easier to set up an account at TwitchTV than getting Xbox Live or Nintendo Switch Online accounts—and these services cost money!
If you want more options than just recording straight-up video clips from games then we recommend checking out our favorite tools: Streamlabs OBS Studio which allows users with little technical knowhow (like newbies) create streams while they play games online with ease; XSplit Broadcaster which offers users who want more control over their stream quality as well as remote panels where they can access different features like audio mixing without having any previous experience whatsoever; Pinnacle GameCap Pro 6 which gives advanced features such as live chat integration among other things–allowing beginners who already know what they’re doing during live broadcasts but still want something simple enough not only reach mainstream audiences but also stay within budget limits too!
Become a good commentator
You’re going to be a commentator, and that means you need to know how to talk about games.
You are an expert on the game. You can talk about it in-depth and make sure your audience understands what’s going on in the game, but also keep them entertained by adding commentary or humor as needed.
The first step is becoming familiar with your character’s attributes ( strengths and weaknesses) as well as any unique abilities they may have. Once you have a good understanding of these things then it will be easier for viewers who aren’t extremely familiar with gaming culture not only understand what they’re watching but also feel like they can relate if they watch other videos by different people who play similar games too!
Add in a title screen and outro
The title screen and outro of your video should be consistent across all of your videos, with a small amount of text explaining who you are and what you do. This will help viewers recognize who they’re watching and provide context if they’re not familiar with gaming content.
If possible, try to include a short description of what’s being played in the game (e.g., “This game is an action-adventure game that takes place in outer space”). If there isn’t room for this text on the main page itself (which would likely be at least 10 words), consider adding it as part of the outro instead—it’ll still be visible when watching later on!
Cut out parts where nothing happens
Now that you’ve got a good idea of what makes a great gaming video, it’s time to start working on your first one. First, make sure that the main part of your video is interesting and engaging enough for people to watch it all the way through. If there are long stretches where nothing happens or no gameplay occurs at all (for example, if someone just talks), those parts should be cut out so that the viewer doesn’t get bored or distracted by irrelevant content.
Next: Try not to be too boring! You want viewers who will stay tuned in throughout their entire viewing session—so keep things interesting! Make sure everything from beginning until end feels like a good adventure full of excitement and thrills; don’t let yourself fall into cliche territory here because nobody wants boring content on their channel either! And finally: If you’re uncertain about how things need adapting ahead of time then ask someone else who has already created similar videos (or even better; ask yourself). They’ll probably have some valuable insight for making sure yours stays entertaining throughout its entirety.”
Get better at editing your video and adding special effects
- Video editing software. If you want to be a gaming youtuber, it’s important that you have the ability to edit your videos and make them look good. There are many different types of video editing software available online, but I recommend using Adobe Premiere Pro CC or Sony Vegas Pro 13 for their ease of use and flexibility.
- Importing clips into a video editor. Once you’ve downloaded all of your favourite gaming videos from Twitch or YouTube into one place (you’ll need an FTP client), open up each clip in its own tab in your favorite program so that they can all be viewed at once as opposed to having them scattered across multiple tabs throughout the process of creating an editable master file. Then choose File -> Open Scene/Sequence… from within Premiere Pro CC or File -> Open Video File… from within Sony Vegas Pro 13; this will allow you select which clips need adjusting before proceeding further with editing procedures like adding transitions between scenes within each scene (e.g., moving from one scene location onto another).
- Editing clips using effects & transitions tools: After selecting which clips should be edited together based upon how long they take up on screen versus other scenes being played simultaneously during playtime – i
Figure out your branding
- What is your brand?
- How do you want to be perceived?
- What are your goals for your channel?
- What do you want and/or want to do with it, and what is the purpose of having a YouTube channel in general?
- How does this relate back to the first question: how does one go about creating an identity that resonates with others (and potential viewers)? If someone were interested in becoming an eSport player, would they need a different personality than someone who wants just to play video games casually or casually record themselves playing their favorite game with friends at home on evenings after work/school when there isn’t much else happening.
Write descriptions for your videos and connect with others
- Describe the video.
You can use descriptive words and phrases to highlight what you’re doing in each video, so that viewers know exactly what they are going to see when they watch your content. For example: “I am playing [game] on [device].”
- Connect with others who like gaming content too!
Get in touch with other Youtubers who share a similar passion for gaming as yours and start collaborating together on projects or creating new content together! You can also ask them for advice on setting up a channel or promoting your own channel by sharing links to their channels in yours (or vice versa). This will help increase the visibility of both of you on YouTube so everyone knows about each other’s work sooner rather than later!
The more hours you put in, the more seasoned you’ll become.
The more hours you put in, the more seasoned you’ll become. The more videos you make, the better at making them and building a community around them. The more experience and confidence that comes from making games for others to play and enjoy – not just on YouTube but also other platforms such as Twitch or Mixer – will only help elevate your next video creation efforts even further!
This is why we recommend starting as early as possible: if there’s one thing I’ve learned during my time here at DopeArena (and now working with all these other companies), it’s that time spent learning can never be wasted!
As you can see, becoming a gaming YouTuber is a lot of work. It requires dedication, perseverance and perhaps more than anything else, patience. Now that we’ve covered the basics of what it takes to become one yourself, hopefully you feel inspired to get started on your journey!
