2017 has finally come to a close.

Constantly clutching a cup of coffee, Juan Ortiz is best known for his “Johnny Vs.” series, in which he tackles a game or franchise and reviews it inside and out.

Covering everything from flash games to console releases, Brutalmoose definitely deserves a spot on this list. A member of the Hidden Block review team, he has been creating content consistently since 2012. In addition to gaming, Brutalmoose also reviews Disney channel original movies, video game films, and even TV dinners.
Now, longtime fans of the words I write down may know that I actually interviewed DexTheSwede last year.

And, honestly, that’s pretty much all you need to know.
Covering everything from Super Mario clones to sequels that need to happen, Austin Eruption takes a look at a large range of topics on his channel. Oh, and he probably has the best hair of any YouTuber I’ve ever seen. Just thought I’d let you know.
Taking a look at classic PC games, PushingUpRoses is one of the most underrated video game reviewers on YouTube. In addition to game reviews, she also covers topics such as “Why Do Video Game Sounds Make Us Wax Nostalgia” and “Why Are Video Game Sex Scenes So Bad?” And, unlike a lot of us, she’s honest about the tattoos she regrets.
