Many popular gamers are joining TikTok and often use it to share more personal content.
The biggest TikTok-native gamers play augmented reality (AR) games and text-based filters.
Some of the most popular creators on the app include JoshDub, Mully, and Vampyro111.
TikTok occupies a unique space in the gaming realm. Many of the most popular gaming influencers online — like Markiplier and Jacksepticeye, who are huge on other platforms like YouTube — have accounts on TikTok, but they use it to post more personal content as opposed to gaming.
As a result, many of the top gaming TikTokers are people who compile hilarious clips from other gamers, or creators who make funny parodies of games. There is a wide array of content that you wouldn't commonly find on Twitch and YouTube, which prioritize long-form videos. And there are some text- and AR-filter-based games native to TikTok that creators love to record themselves playing.
Here are 7 of the most popular and unique creators you should follow on TikTok.
GEVids started on YouTube in 2016, but they've more than doubled their following on TikTok since joining in 2020, with over 11 million followers to date.
GEVids, who hasn't publicly revealed their name, posts an array of skits in the Minecraft format, including reenactments of popular video games like Fall Guys. Their most recent clip draws inspiration from the viral Gen Alpha meme Skibidi toilet.
