Gaming On Youtube Has Changed

Gaming On Youtube Has Changed

Hi! it’s like 4:30 a.m. right now,
And I can’t sleep. I’ve been trying for the last while.
And I just have so many thoughts bouncing around inside my head
that I just can’t sleep.
What’s up bitches!
…which is a reoccurring thing with me!
usually I–I have a hard time sleeping
just ’cause I’m thinking about stuff
probably more than I should be
but I’ve had some thoughts bouncing around in my head that I kinda wanna talk about
that I’ve wanted to talk about for a while
–I mean nothing serious, or anything, just
stuff that… I used to do these things fairly often before, a year or two ago
Where I would just–if anything was in my head I would kind of just blurt it out
in a video and just kinda chat to you guys. Which I miss, and I
I kinda dropped the ball on that stuff for a while and
some of the community aspect of the channel kinda lacks then
when you don’t do that, ’cause you dont have a real connection then.
It’s hard to connect when you’re doing let’s plays or any other type of video so,
It was another excuse to do another one of these types of videos!
Something that I– I get asked
every now and then lately is: if my channel is “dying”?
or if…
Everyone–people saying stuff like “Ohh you changed, you were so much
better before, you had so much energy before–” things like that
and I mean, people are gonna say stuff all the time anyway
stuff like that to… any sort of youtuber
um, but one that keeps happening is
like– “is Jacksepticeye’s channel DYING?”
and–no! It’s not (laughs)
even if I stopped uploading, tomorrow
for like a year, there would still be some residual views
coming in all the time.
It’s just so funny on youtube, it’s either you’re…
you’re “top of the game” or you’re “dying”. (laughs)
But, sometimes it kinda bothers me, because
it seems like, some people on the channel, some people who watch the videos that I do
seem to care more about the numbers aspect of it more than I do.
I think the biggest factor to it is that… I just don’t upload as much as I used to
’cause I used to upload two videos, every day
and that was all I could talk about, that’s all I could do, because that was
my entire schedule. My whole life revolved around
getting two videos out every day, to the point where
it started to like– REALLY affect my day-to-day life?
‘Cause I didn’t even have time to go out and get groceries or anything
Well, no, was it July? Yeah, July, I went to LA last year
in July and I took a week off, re-evaluated what I wanted to do
and I tried to get some of my energy back?
and, I came back and I decided, “okay I’m doing one video a day,
from now on,” because two videos a day was just
It was too much time, I had no time to do any of the projects I wanted to do
I had no time to even hang out with some friends that I wanted to hang out with,
and if I missed a video I’d get really upset with myself.
So, I’m just not pumping out the same quantity of videos anymore,
uh, so obviously, like–
the view count has just–halved
on the channel on a month-by-month

  1. Jack has changed… He has a man bun…. Only plays Minecraft… And somehow got to interview brad Pitt… Damn

  2. i genuinely love these heart to heart videos you do. it's great to listen to what you got to say in such an intelligent way

  3. If 2 videos a day is fine for you, go on… Do it.

    But you need some timeout, some time for yourself, your girlfriend (?), and friends…. Don't go too hard on yourself.

  4. I am just checking trending page.It's mostly, Jimmy shits( Fallon, Kimmel), Youtubers that are shit/clickbaity that vlog ( Oh look I bought a cat, look at my home), reaction videos( Azzyshit, Sssnipershit) Literally no gaming stuff. The only good thing is when good movie trailer appears on trending and that's it. You will never see funny video on trending.

  5. I’ve felt this as well. My channel grew from Fortnite and when in season 7/8 I didn’t like the game anymore instead of changing and continuing my great momentum I just stopped as I didn’t know what to do when I didn’t like the game anymore and I felt trapped in that one game. Now I like fortnite again I’m back making videos on it again. Just a shame I lost that momentum due to feeling trapped in that one game/video type

  6. I unsubscribed a while ago because I found the humor sort of changed over time and also I just lost interest in this channel but when I look at it now it's just the same content (Minecraft, Mario Maker…) and clickbaity titles / thumbnails as all the other channels. I miss the true variety gaming from a few years ago.

  7. Honestly, this sounds way to time consuming to do, Remember the days Youtube was an independany company and they actually /cared/ about the users, their channels and their community? Yeah, me too. Before google took over.

  8. That’s just everything that has to do with any kind of content in general. If someone or something is on the top then it’s on top, if you or it isn’t it’s dying. From YouTube to video games. That’s just the way it is and it’s fucking retarted.

  9. Yet I don’t use profanity but everyone else does. It honestly doesn’t seem right. But you’re right jack, gaming has changed on YouTube. In fact that might be the very reason why I’m not as popular as many would think. But I’ve enjoyed all you’re videos especially the Turbo Dismount ones.

  10. Let's wait on god of war 5 for resurfacing in the gaming side in youtube and putting down all the games that was on top.

  11. On this video… The gladiator is sad… But I have come from the future… On the future… Jack is playing MINECRAFT!! With Felix…

  12. 0:12 I've been gone for like only a couple of months or something AND YOU LOOK SO DIFFERENT OH MAH GOD!! I haven't even seen the video yet beyond 12 seconds and I'm already concerned as hell because you look like you have aged years!! YOUR INTRO SAID HI!! hi. What happened to you my precious potato man???

  13. so to sumarize, is about money income, taking less risk for the bussines bank:
    Playing more than 1 type of game increses the chance of not getting paid cuz X factors
    Instead of playing 1 game, that you know it has a higher chance to get paid= profit.

    This men is in the entertaiment industry of youtube, he is not here to make you feel good about the video, he is here to do his job so he has to follow rules, and with that make decisions regard profit vs loses, simple as that.

  14. I don't care how much you upload, I'll always watch you. I've stuck around too long to leave your wonderful community now, you've brought too much joy to me for me to just leave. I'll forever watch your goofball. Thank you for staying on YouTube for so long. I appreciate it, everyone does, Sean.

  15. We loved when you were energetic, screaming in our ears (Because it was funny as hell) and loved how you were. But i dont see how you are like that anymore.. Youve changed.. and i hate that you just cant be your younger self.. I miss you old jack.. I really do 🙁

  16. Honestly, I don't care about the views. This channel was my first big step in learning English, and for that i will be always thankful for Jack. Just do what you love doing, I will be here as long as I can.

  17. I’ve slowly stopped watching jack because I became less interested in his content. As a viewer and a fan of his since I was a child, I felt less connected to him through his videos. I’m not sure why…

  18. But how about…. Playing the game you enjoy playing? o.õ
    I understand the part of being with the demonetization I get it but YOU JUST DID KINDERGARTEN 2 AND IT WAS FUN! Because it's a game you enjoying playing and that bounces back into your performance. Does all these statics really matter or is this just you trying to justify yourself into keep your living standards?
    Not questioning what you want just putting some food for thought I guess. Because lately more than ever I have been watching you and pretty much all the others youtubers less and less because all of you seem, tired, seem pretty disingenuous and well somewhat pretty sellout in the 'top treading' things on youtube.

    Oh Well guess this is just a comment rant just like this video xD

  19. Hey @jacksepticeye me and my girlfriend have been following you since cry of fear, and we love you to death. I've just been concerned about the content you do release. I know that you have a job to do. I know this is your way of living. We don't really enjoy Minecraft and it's simplistic blocking format. I'm not a picky gamer at all. I have watched you play YouTube maker, and even that doesn't doctor simulator everyone used to play. Enjoyed watching cause it's you. Well the point is, we've enjoyed the visage series and have been waiting for the next episode. It just seems you've been binging on Minecraft to keep the channel pushing up and up. You don't need to do that because you're channel is doing well, so it seems like you're becoming addicted to Minecraft. I know that a lot of people enjoy that, but me and my gf havent continued watching because we do enjoy you playing a bunch of different things because I grew up with you in front of me.

  20. What's sad is that the community backlashes because a creator, or other community member, doesn't submit to their views and wishes. I'm very opinionated, so I understand, but I try to not stir up ruckus on the internet. If I want to say something, I'll say it to your face. If you're too scared to say it in real life, then don't say it online. ❤ Jacksepticeye is a normal human being too, so don't expect him to ruin himself over this career. I love his personality and the videos he makes, so if he has to make certain decisions to help his own health… Then so be it. I'll support him.

  21. I mean, if people want to say mean things then leave, then maybe it's for the best. Would you rather have a large community with toxic people, or smaller community but have more positive people?

  22. Thanks for this dude, very informative ! I do a variety of games on my channel, and it’s really just for fun because music is my #1 passion. However, I’m low key tryna be an affiliate on Twitch as that’s where I record my Xbox videos from and everyone that has interacted with me on there with whatever game I played were dope ! Keep up the good work bro !

  23. I'm sorry Sean, but it's not the gaming. Your channel has changed and I'm usually all for change but it's not in a good way. I used to watch you a lot and now I can't because whenever I do, I just get reminded of those clickbaited channels. That's all yours is now. I'm sorry, but it's not the gaming. It was never the gaming. I click on your videos and without scrolling down, all I saw was "blah blah blah IN MINECRAFT" or "this and that IN KINDERGARDEN 2" I mean, come on, Sean. I've been watching you for so long. Now all I think about is you being fake. Your channel is dying because of this. I'm so sorry, but you're just like all the other clickbaity youtubers. Please, go back to when you were happier. Because I'm not the only one who's noticed how terrible this channel has become. It's rubs me in the wrongest way possible. Do something other than minecraft. Another game. Maybe a horror game or a letsplay. Something else, please. Please go back. This hurts me so god damn much.

  24. numbers don't rlly matter at all, or at least they shouldn't, you've great content that's i personally rlly enjoy and u have a awesome and funny personality and u make my days brighter 🙂
    ew that last part was so corny xD

    but anyway, yh thanks 🙂

  25. July 27: "I don't just play 1 game, or 2 games and do videos on that."

    August 21: Only plays Minecraft and Kindergarten 2

  26. Dude, please – SHUT THE FUCK UP ALREADY! Nobody gives a fuck what you think you pompous crumpetfucker – back to bed bitch!

  27. I like the episode part tittles better. I don't have to worry bout finding the right part or if I watched something out of order.

  28. I’ve strayed away from watching this video since you put it out, fearing of..well YouTube being a big restrictive meany

    I’m saddened and annoyed how stricter and stricter youtube has become and is becoming these days. I’m not the big smarts on the subject, but I can understand how gamers are attempting to adapt despite the huge dislike for doing so. Change is always p difficult, and retraining yourself whenever you’re putting out videos. I’m hoping that, despite this, you don’t change /strictly/ or /just/ for youtube. Do it for y o u
    Also, please do put yourself first. Not being able to sleep with something like this kinda bothering you? Please take care of yourself, we care more for you than what you upload. We understand YouTube is the problem, not you. So keep doing, and being you

    Loads of luck, love, and good vibes ❤️

  29. You got burnt out be fair to you do you man i enjoyed all ur vids for years regardless love all your content be proud of it bro

  30. Weather u do 2 videos or 1 video a day it doesn’t matter the only thing that changed is that u matured and taking ur life back while still doing what u love if ur happy then ur true fans should be too u keep doing what u want to do jack most of us will love and support u through the rest of ur YouTube career life u r one of my top favorite YouTubers so just be happy I love u buddy 🙂 keep up the great work 🤗❤️❤️💝💝💗💗💖💘💞

  31. It's not that gaming changed or the content or anything it's just the way it feels it's not real content from the heart from most ppl anymore and it makes it hard to enjoy

  32. Don’t worry when god of war 5 comes it’ll make gaming on YouTube great again just like it did for 2018

  33. "So people are kinda picking what works and then doubling down on that and just hammering into it and just making as many videos on that type of stuff as they can. Again no judgement". No offense but you wouldn't even be in a position to judge them because you've became one of them. The last month you've uploaded almost only Minecraft videos, 28 of 48. It's your channel and it's up to you what kind of content you upload to it and I get the points you're making in regards of the system changing but this channel has become, in my opinion at least, just another Minecraft channel. I've watched you for four or five years because you did what you wanted to do and it's kinda sad to see you following the same route as every other gaming channel here. But just my opinion.

  34. Fortnite just ruined the gaming community when it just came out of fucking nowhere making a pubg and a Minecraft fusion and go on fortnite kids and spit shit out of your mouth replying to me. I bet that you don't even enjoy playing fortnite and you just play it because it is the trend but now it's dead and I hope many other games come out but I don't want any game to take over YouTube as I just want it to be as simple as possible

  35. Jackie boi, my son, my gladiator. You don't have to do 2 videos a day to keep us happy. Even if your video gets 3 views it's those 3 people who's lives you are changing and hell, if you have fun doing it so be it.

  36. What about your "I'll do it despite the views if I'm enjoying " philosophy?
    I get that you have bills to pay, but you've made more videos about Minecraft in a week than Visage or other amazing games that you haven't finished because of the views..(I'm saying this because you didn't say you weren't enjoying them, you just stopped uploading).
