    I like him, he's funny. That's a ridiculous amount of money though.

    He seems like a really decent and likable guy, and his videos are pretty darn fun. It's not surprising that he's the most successful YouTuber.

    He's not a bad guy out of the videos, but his videos are kind of bottom-of-the-barrel stuff that only children would really like. Too much screaming, awful sex jokes, among other things.

    Yeah, I found him initially entertaining, but even just from the Happy Wheels vids it got really, really repetitive when he kept making sex jokes about that goddamn vespa.

    Much prefer Rooster Teeth Let's Plays to his by a mile. Forgot to post that. They have better, more varied content and better personalities.

    So I just asked my son about PewDiePie and he said that he doesn't like him that much. I ask him what guys do he like onb youtube he answered he likes Toby Turner and Markiplier because they do other stuff than play games. I know who Toby Turner is through his literal stuff and Cartoon Network, but Markiplier not so much, I guess I'll check his stuff out today.

    PewDiePie is a nice person, but by god his videos are just him screaming like a pansy and it hurts my ears. He has an accent, but's its not a fun or good one to listen to.

    I can understand why people like him, but his fanbase is terrible.

    His videos are literally unwatchable for me, overacting and screaming it makes my ears bleed. Good for him, making a living out of this, but it just shocks me a bit on the amount of people who actually like that sort of stuff.

    5-10 year olds who spam caps on other peoples videos and defending him to death. It's like half his fanbase.
