Vanoss Gaming – Evan Fong

VanossGaming is one of the most popular youtube channels and it was created by Evan Fong from Toronto. He has slightly more subscribers than NigaHiga, who at one point had the most subscribers. Currently both channels have 16+ million subscribers (closer to 17 million). I have not followed youtube recently but Fong’s success seems to have happened relatively quickly. There’s one interesting article from the Finanical Post that gives some background. His channel mainly consists of video game footage of him and his friends playing with commentary from them. It’s like listening in on a bunch of guys just having fun playing video games. It’s edited to show the funny moments.

Personally, I don’t have much interest in video game commentary channels. But with so many subscribers, he’s obviously doing something right. It goes to show how popular video games and commentary have become. Here’s a video with some facts about Evan Fong, who played hockey competitively at one point.
