20 of the best gaming vids on YouTube

YouTube, one of the single greatest things to come out of the Internet, is five today (the first video was uploaded on April 23, 2005). A mere baby in historical terms, but with significance beyond compare in the world of moving images.

Anyway, you know the rest. There's an ass-ton of gaming videos on there, some of which have become memes and Internet legends, leading to much more than five minutes of fame for those who appear in them. If you don't play games you probably don't know who Cliff Bleszinksi is, but you sure as hell have heard of Wii fit girl. And that's thanks to YouTube.

In case, you wondered, the below are not in any order, neither are we attempting to be exahustive - that would be a foolish task. However,  if we've missed a bonafide classic that isn't a jammy Modern Warfare 2 knife kill or an obese child crying about his red ring, then let us know in the comments, on Facebook or via Twitter.

    I HATE every single unintelligent, uneducated twat that feels the need to comment on Mass Effect as if it will be the harbinger of prohibition in the video game world. I almost forgot about Fox News and Cooper running her mouth about something she doesn't understand, but now I'm pissed off again. Geoff deserves a medal.

    K. The "Boom Headshot" guy reminds me of Brucie so much. It's kinda creepy. Maybe he inspired Rock Star? Course Rock Star actually found a way to make him funny instead of just really annoying.

    what annoys me more bout the x box girl MOAR than her face.. her voice.. her laugh.. and her breaking of the 360 is how LITTLE energy she puts into whacking the 360.. i've had harder pillow fights than that :/

    sucks to be the guy with the Xbox that got smashed. But seriously. She used HIS golf clubs to smash HIS stuff?! Insult to injury! 4,000 compensation sammiches must be made

    The WOW Freak Out thing is how I picture Cartman would react if he ever touched holy water.(and I'm not even religious lol) That video actually scared me. The Leeroy video didn't even make since to me. What was with all of the bats? I don't get it.

    Loved it
  • Zeipher - April 25, 2010 12:44 a.m.

    Was the playstation E3 video supposed to be funny? It had a few "oh, that's ironic" moments, but not enough to merit inclusion in the top 20 all-time. I can't believe you missed the TF griefing videos.
  • Nocturne989 - April 24, 2010 7:16 p.m.

    Ill see you in Hell, Cube. cracks me up :)
  • lovinmyps3 - April 24, 2010 6:25 p.m.

    Awesome feature! The "LEEEEEROY JENKINS" one always makes me laugh!
  • twinkletitsMcGee - April 24, 2010 3:37 p.m.

    Fox News is an embarrassment to news companies everywhere. How the fuck do you make judgments on something that you ADMIT NOT PLAYING OR SEEING!
  • philipshaw - April 24, 2010 11:30 a.m.

    I love that any German person shouting will always sound evil and not stupid
  • aequitas13 - April 24, 2010 5:13 a.m.

    Bah... where's the E3 Natal video? BAM!
