by Tass on Dec.22, 2011, under Personal, Spil Games, Walkthrough, youtube

I received an email from YouTube letting me know that Snail Bob 2 Part 1 was one of the most viewed videos of 2011. Pretty damn cool. It’s now over 4 million views in just 7 months.

This is the article on YouTube’s blog.

And this is the playlist with the top5 gaming videos of 2011.

Enjoy and thanks for watching!

Top Sponsors/Devs List – Dec 2011

by Tass on Dec.20, 2011, under armor games, Spil Games, Statistics, youtube

This is the 4th post on this topic, every 6 months dating back to July 2010. It takes a look at my top 100 videos broken down by the sponsor and developer, including views on YouTube and 5min. Video #100 is up to 295k views and the top 100 now totals over 84 million views. There are 11 new videos in the top 100 this time around.

Armor remains #1, although Spil is gaining fast. Armor still has 1/3rd of the videos, but only increased by about 5 million total views. Spil went from 14 to 18 vids on the list and skyrocketed 13 million views. And we have 1 new sponsor on the list: ArcadeBomb.

Some big changes on the dev side however, almost all by PITon. He’s soared over 9 million views in the past 6 months to take a massive lead as the top dev. Joey lost 2 videos from the top100 and was passed by John. Nice gains also by Robin Vencel and gmentat.

Top Sponsors/Devs List – June 2011

by Tass on Jun.23, 2011, under 5min, ArcadeTown, armor games, BubbleBox, Candystand, jmtb02, Joey Betz, kongregate, NinjaKiwi, NotDoppler, Pastel Games, Spil Games, Statistics, Walkthrough

Here’s another list that I haven’t updated in 6 months… the top sponsors and developers ONLY including my top100 most viewed videos. Data is cumulative between YouTube and 5min (since I’ve done 9+ million views in the past 8 months on 5min, most of which are Armor’s).

You can refer back to the last post on this subject to view the July 2010 and December 2010 data.

The top sponsor list remains the same at the top, with Armor maintaining their roughly 50% of the total views and 33% of the videos. The biggest gainer is Spil Games, who have jumped to 14 games on the list and over 8.5 million views; I suspect a year from now Spil will overtake Armor.

On the dev side, Joey and John remain 1 and 2, but Eugene, Belugerin, gmentat, and PITon are trying to close the gap. I’ve cropped the list to only include devs with 1 million or more total views out of their top100 vids.

And my 100th video is now sitting at 245,000 views. I forget to count the new entries to the list, but I think it was around 13.

YouTube Views by Country and Continent – June 2011

by Tass on Jun.21, 2011, under Spil Games, Statistics, youtube

I last posted about this in December 2010. It’s now been 6 months, so I’ve decided to look at the numbers again (as the last update was covering the 6 months from June 2010 – December 2010). I find the results to be very fascinating:

1) I think the difference between “Total” and “Worldwide” is because of Turkey; from what I’ve noticed, Turkey is not counted in either Europe or Asia… and the views from Turkey line up fairly well with the difference between the 2 values.
2) Note the decrease in US views, with the Worldwide views remaining fairly constant. My theory on this is 2-fold; a) I’ve been doing less work for ArmorGames, Kongregate, Bubblebox, and Candystand recently… which likely have very high US traffic. And b) I’ve had a ton of work for Spil Games’ network over the same period, who heavily focus on non-US, non-English-Speaking traffic.
3) US, Can/Mex, Europe, and Aus/NZ have decreased from 84% to 78%. Majority is still US and Europe, although that percentage has decreased as well.
