I cannot stand Gamechap and Bertie. Ugh.

In all honesty, PewDiePie's not bad. I like his selection of games; it's just that his voice and his screams just annoy the crap out of me.
And CaptainSparklez is one of the best out there. Along with ChimneySwift11.

TotalBiscuit because he goes on a flaming crusade to reply and ban everyone with negative feedback on his video's. It's like it's gone past mere 'professionalism' into extreme perfectionism, arrogance and insecurity.

I enjoyed his "WTF is" video's a lot, so it's rather unfortunate that I had to 'let him go'.

I can't stand TmarTn. His game selection is poor and he's sold out. He also can't speak clearly and I personally think he sounds too jockish. His quality is inconsistant too. Some videos are semi-edited, some are just him talking, some are link videos, and others are vlogs. Fastest unsubscribe ever.

I really hate PewDiePie. He overreacts too much and he constantly makes tasteless jokes about rape and the such. I mean, I'm sure he's a cool guy and all, but seriously. I don't really like Toby's new play throughs, but his older ones like Fallout: New Vegas aren't really that bad. I haven't really watched much of the Yogscast except for their first few Minecraft videos, but I never really enjoyed them that much, to be honest. Also haven't watched much of UberHaxorNova, but he didn't manage to get on my nerves. My personal favorite is Cry, I've been subscribed to him for a year or two and he's pretty a chill guy. I kind of hate how many of his newer subscribers are just people who've found him through PewDiePie, but whatever.

Yogscast, Gamechap.
I don't hate TobyGames, but he IS just not fun to watch. TobyGames is like his main channel now, rather than Tobuscus.

EDIT: Not popular, but the67go. Ugh.

Pretty much everyone said already. I also despise PsiSyndicate. UberHaxorNova used to be good, epecially before Happy Wheels, but his content and youtube mentality has suffered quite a bit. If you are looking for something other than the norm, I suggest checking out SideStrafe; professional like TotalBiscuit, but without the journalism and eSports.

If anybody here plays Team Fortress 2, you are all going to agree AcesGamer is a disgusting, unentertaining scumbag. His tutorials are utter trash, he's arrogant, cares about trading far over playing, considers his opinions the word of God, and is a complete LOLOLWORDFILTERLOLOL­.
Yeah, I agree. I was sort of a fan of his a bit ago, but he has became a absolute egomaniac. The last straw was when he posted a video with a misleading title that was essentially just him bragging about an awesome hat he got. I now almost exclusively watch Jerma985 for Team Fortress 2 videos.

Don't agree with Nova, but I'm starting to see why you put PsiSyndicate on your list. All he plays are ARMA 2 gamemodes - mainly DayZ - and he does multiple series of the same mod for months. I'd like to see something other than DayZ or Wasteland for once.

To add onto my list are WoodysGamertag and Whiteboy7thst. Both of them seem to only have CoD on their channels. I have no idea how both of them have 1,000,000 subscribers, because all I see are gameplay montages, tips, random moments & the occasional vlog. They're both good at what they do, but they have almost no variety in their content.

If you can't already tell from the above paragraphs, I'm not a fan of commentators who only play one game for 80% of their videos. There are a few others out there I can name who do something similar (MinnesotaBurns, 2BCProductions2BC, etc.), but at least they play some other games to shake it up a bit.

Ugh, one commentator I cannot STAND is TobyGames.  Just listening to him ramble on, making unfunny jokes, while playing games he is in no way good at, makes me want to strangle a puppy every time I watch him.  He's just... terrible!

Toby's not the worst   I found his gaming channel after seeing his main channel, and I watched him quite a bit for a while.  He does get a bit tiring after a while, since his main shtick is being awful.

I can't stand Yogscast.  They just annoy me for some reason.

But Pewdiepie takes the prize here.  Can't stand him, and he's made it so I can't jokingly use the word "bro" without people asking me if I'm a pewdiepie fan.
