It’s time for another monthly installment of our Tubefilter Top 100 Most Viewed YouTube Gaming Channels Chart and a new channel is on top.

Chart Toppers

Felix Kjellberg‘s PewDiePie* channel dropped down to second place for the month of March. The twentysomething Swedish gamer’s prolific online video collection of Let’s Play videos that now has more than 36 million subscribers scored more than 295.5 million views during the 31 days of March, but that impressive number was just shy of claiming the top spot. British-based online video gamer TheDiamondMinecart sneaked into first place, ending the month with nearly 298 million views.

PopularMMOs is once again next up in the #3 spot. The top gaming channel from the U.S. witnessed a 17% increase in its view count to close out the month just shy of 273.3 million views. Up next is markiplierGAME. The second U.S.-based gamer in the Top 100 saw a sizable 33% increase in views to amass more than 246.5 million views on the month.

And rounding out the Top 5 again is JackSepticEye. The Irish gamer saw a 15% bump in views to end March with more than 223.9 million of them.

*Savvy online video viewers will notice that Felix Kjellberg’s PewDiePie channel’s monthly view count is down a significant amount this month in terms of views. Looking at our data, the channel saw a negative view count during a few days in the month of March that numbered in the 100s of millions. That could be an error on behalf of YouTube or it could be the result of a legitimate view count audit. The world’s largest video sharing site sometimes makes mistakes when tallying view counts and then later may take away views from a channel if the company finds a miscalculation. But regardless of how the situation came to be, the data we receive from YouTube is the data we’re sticking with. We’ll update the numbers ASAP if we receive any updated metrics or information.

The YouTube home of Irish brothers Ryan and Scott Fitzimmons 100% kid-friendly online video gaming exploits had a great month on YouTube, thanks to a steady output of their popular Minecraft SchoolMinecraft Challenge, and other Minecraft-related video series. Uploads like ‘THE JOKER COMES TO SCHOOL!‘ helped the channel to a 72% month-over-month increase in views, almost 79.6 million views during the month, and the #17 spot on the chart.
