The Meteoric Rise To Stardom

MatPat’s game-changing YouTube channels have been the talk of the town for years; and the back-story to his rise to success is just as inspiring as his transition into one of the biggest YouTubers. Growing up, Matthew was the kind of kid that always valued education to a point where he’d take classes during the summer break, and who also just couldn’t get enough of games and movies. A few years later, Matthew whipped out the idea of sharing with the world never-before-witnessed YouTube contents like talking about the relationship between gaming and reality in terms of math and science. Thus, he brought into existence his first channel ‘The Game Theorists’, where he releases episodes based on games like ‘Nintendo’ and ‘Call of Duty’ and educates the viewers about its tangential experiences. A channel that mostly shares video content that are spin-offs or even sometimes separate shows, ‘The Game Theorists’ soon caught the eye of major gaming channels and fanatics. Now with a whopping 17.2 million and counting subscribers, Matthew Patrick’s channel that lets several content creators formulate theories and educate their viewers about games, is on its way to make it even bigger! Following the success of this channel, he announced the introduction of a second channel, ‘The Film Theorists’, that basically runs along the same lines as ‘The Game Theorists’ but centered around theories about films. In his third channel ‘GT Live’, Matthew and his wife are seen hosting live streams that revolve around gaming and related challenges and discussions. His new channels have received over 11.9 million and 3.1 million subscribers respectively.
