It’s time for another monthly installment of our Tubefilter Top 100 Most Viewed YouTube Gaming Channels Chart and PewDiePie is still on top by a few hundred million views.

Chart Toppers

Felix Kjellberg‘s PewDiePie channel is in its usual #1 spot on the YouTube Gaming Channels Chart. The twentysomething Swedish gamer’s online video repository of Let’s Play videos saw a modest 7% uptick in views to end the month just shy of 418 million of them. PopularMMOs is 150 million views behind in second place. The top gamer from the U.S. witnessed a significant 40% month-over-month increase in views to score nearly 267 million views on the month.

In a not-so-far-behind third place is Stampylonghead. The UK-based gamer with a an affinity for Minecraft and education ended the 31 days of January with almost 252.9 million views. Next up is Stampy’s fellow UK-based gamer The Diamond Minecart. A 20% bump in views pushed the channel’s monthly view count up to nearly 210.8 million. And rounding out the Top 5 is markiplierGAME. The other U.S.-based gamer in the Top 5 scored more than 208.1 million views during the month.

A Closer Look At The Top 10

Our friends over at Tiltify put together a snazzy video with clips from the Top 10 Gaming Channels this month. Check it out for a primer on the kind of content the most viewed gaming channels on YouTube distribute and/or to catch scenes from your favorite channels.

Top Gainers

The honor of one of our Top Gainers this month goes, once again, to smikesmike05.

The Montreal-based gamer is one of our Top gainers for the second-month running thanks to the channel’s clever combination of the incredibly popular YouTube genres of Let’s Play and Top 10s. SmikeSmike05 had a breakout December and an even better January. The channel witnessed a 100% month-over-month increase in views to score more than 65.4 million views and the #22 spot on the Top 100.
