The bigger Call of Duty commentators do YouTube full-time, such as Hutch, Seananners, xJawz, Wings Of Redemption (who is a dick), Woodysgamertag and plenty more.

Most if not all of the 2K commentators just do it in their spare time and work 9-5 jobs.

No idea if Smoove does it full-time though. He has enough views and subs to be able to if he wanted.

Smoove talked about it once. Saying he would never do youtube full time. He wants a real job, he just graduated college and is looking for a real job. However, he also already has his own house so he must have made a shit load of youtube. He does get six figure views per vid. Wingsofredemption does youtube vids fulltime and makes a living off it and he only gets like 35k views per CoD vid.

I'm not very knowledgeable on this front, but are any commentaries free to make cash even though they are essentially using someone else's content (NBA 2K, COD) as a platform? Is this true for self-made 2K video mixes and whatnot?

I am pretty sure you can post any gameplay on youtube. The companies dont take any of your money earned

i seem to remember hearing that it went like this (bear with vague answer):

-if it's all your own content, you will make money just by someone viewing it.

-if it's using someone elses stuff, a game in this case (don't know all the things that fall into category) then you won't get money for just having it watched, you need to put advertisements on your vids to get paid. whether that means an ad played before your video and/or someone clicking on the add in the top right corner i don't know either.

i watched chicity a lot and on another video blogging site he went into detail about the amount of money he made from youtube and how he made it. one other source of income for him was his youtube videos being bought by television companies etc who want to use his videos. for example, we have a show called 'rude tube' in the uk that just plays youtube videos all the way through.

when he recieved the letter of request from the tv company -possibly via youtube, cant remember- he had the choice to take a flat sum of money and they could then use the video as many times as they liked after that, or he could ask to be paid for every time it was broadcast.

I remember a big youtuber, wingsofredemption, saying that YouTube now pays you for the amount of time your video is watched. A video that is 2 minutes long watched by 1,000,000 in full, will make more than a 6 minute video viewed by 100,000 in full.

I also like QJB, Ipodkingcarter and Kspade for 2K videos. QJB has the same phrases, but they never fail to make me laugh.

I don't even play Madden, but I like watching people play it. My favourite Madden commentators are Dukethekilla, WyzaNow and xChaseMoney (Chase is my favourite gaming commentator period, not that well known but funny as hell, would recommend checking him out).
Same. I also like to watch DCoop. I don't watch those Madden commentators but I'll try to check xChaseMoney out.

I only like it when he does his laugh. Otherwise I have no reason to watch any of his videos.

I should take a clip of it and use it as a tone for when my idiot basketball friend texts me.

Yeah, I also dislike pewdiepie. To me, he's rather annoying than entertaining. I like his fellow Swedish commentator Robbaz, though. His Skyrim series was the best.

His jokes are dry. Videos are boring. NBA2K skills are pretty good but other than that, it is nothing worth wasting your time over.
