Luckily I haven't even heard of most of them, and I'm not subbed to any. I mainly use YouTube to watch/listen to my favourite gaming commentators, and a few fitness community videos too. I really hope none of them will head down this route, or I'll simply stop watching them.
I know the YouTube thing is big, and the amount of people who make it their full-time job nowadays is growing by the day, I just hope some of my favourite YouTubers don't head down this road.
Most of Matt and Pat's best stuff is on their TheSw1tcher channel. Besides that the only thing I was watching on Machinima was allyourhistory, and they've completely ruined that series.
I absolutely agree that their best stuff is on Matt's channel. But if Machinima pressures them to make videos subscription based we might lose some content. I don't think they would go for that, but they'd lose some dough.
I'm not even sure if that's how all of this would work out anyway if that happened. But the only channels I care enough about that I would be bummed if they stopped are theirs, and Team Four Star.
