I have always said that with just a tad more quality control, Youtubers Life could have been a much better game. Do not get me wrong, this is a fun little game and the idea is pretty awesome. However, it has been out for a few years now and it still has a few frustrating bugs here and there. If you can get past these then I am sure you are in for a fun time. I will say that if you have kids, this is a fun game to play through with them.
Be A YouTube Star!
The goal of the game is pretty self-explanatory. You want to create an awesome YouTube channel and have it reach millions of subscribers and make massive stacks of cash, all the while living a good social and active life. Games such as The Sims are probably the best comparison for what Youtubers Life is trying to do.
The premise of the game is really cool, my son is 11 so kids of his generation idolize YouTube personalities so having a game that caters to that is a great idea.
The presentation of the game is very, very charming. The characters have a kind of higher detailed Wii Mii look about them. Actually, the Wii game, MySims is probably the best comparison for the visual style. The characters all have a lot of personality and I love how expressive the faces are. The different homes you live in, events you go to and so on all have a lot of personality to them too which is cool.
Content, Content, Content!
Ok, so I am not a YouTuber, but I would assume that creating content is the main part of their life. In YouTubers Life, you decide what kind of content creator that you want to be. I decided to focus on video games so things like lets plays and reviews were what I would make. The video making aspect of the game is kind of like a fun little mini-game. The better you do, the better your video will be and the more traction it will create.
Eventually, as you progress through the game you can move out of your mom's house, into a studio, higher more people, get endorsements, and so on. You even get to go to events and mingle with people who can help your channel grow. There is a great amount to do here and most of it is fun. The problem is that even after 4 years, this game can still glitch out of you in many different ways which can be frustrating to deal with.
More Than The Internet
Another aspect of YouTubers Life is your social life. You have to go to school and interact with other people. You also have to eat and sleep, what I would do is make sure I did a little eating, sleeping and attend a class here and there to keep people off my back.
Speaking of “people” as you get further into the game, you can hire people to work for you and get them to create content for you. It gives you more stuff to juggle, but I actually liked this and I never felt too overwhelmed.
I enjoyed what I played here and think that Youtubers Life is a fun game. It is probably even more fun if you have an interest in YouTube. If you have kids who love to watch YouTube then this is going to be a fun game for them and even for you guys to play around with together. They are quite good at having different events in the game, but please note that the game does still have a few annoying bugs that can do stuff like make the game crash and even have things not happen as they should. I think had I not had such a great time playing this with my son I probably would have scored the game a point lower.
