2. Immasamurai

"I'd have to go with Immasamurai. She and her Twitch community are so warm and welcoming, she always finds time to chat with her viewers and get to know them, and she's such a fun streamer to watch (especially playing Fortnite) and easily one of the sweetest streamers on Twitch."— rhiannong3

"Lindsay Jones from Achievement Hunter. She may not be the best video gamer in the world but the way she plays and her humor makes her so human and relatable. She is the only girl in Achievement Hunter, which is a group of 10+ people playing video games, but she is able to keep up with everything that's happening and make a name for herself as a women gamer. I truly love her a lot."

4. Geguri

"Geguri! She’s such a badass Zarya player and is so good that people accused her of using an aimbot. And now she’s the first female player on an Overwatch League team. She’s amazing and I hope to see more female gamers on OWL teams in the near future."— ryans48f03663f

5. Gloom

"I love Gloom, previously known as GloomGames. She has a hilarious sense of humor and the things she says while gaming will have you in tears laughing. She brings a huge sense of originality to YouTube and every now and then this puppet Carl (voiced with incredibly humorous improv by Gloom’s boyfriend) joins in on the games, adding exactly the right amount of everything. She also does terribly amusing skits and some reaction videos, but those are also well worth everyone’s time."

"Kisses4Katie on Twitch. Mostly retro RPGs, but she has a lovely sense of humor and loves to make community members and viewers feel at home. A really sweet person and she's been playing games since 1987!"

7. Malena0202

Instagram: @loiranoob

"My favorite gamer is Malena0202, also known as loira noob. She’s the biggest girl gamer YouTuber in Brazil and has over 4m subscribers. She plays all kinds of games on her channel, although she focuses more on Minecraft and Sims 4. What makes her so special is the fact that she doesn’t have any problems saying that she doesn’t know how to do something and asks for help when she needs it."

8. LadyLuckHerself

Instagram: @ladyluckherself

"My favorite streamer in general is LadyLuckHerself on Twitch. She plays all sorts of stuff, from Dark Souls, to Smash Bros. with her followers, to BattleRite, to Don’t Starve (and plays the multiplayer one with her followers too!), and more. Also, she’s a really good artist, so sometimes she just streams herself doing gaming-themed art commissions that her followers give her."

10. LaurenzSide

Instagram: @laurenzside

"Definitely LaurenzSide. She likes doing Sims 4 series based on games such as FNAF, Bendy and The Ink Machine, Yandere Simulator. It’s so funny when her game glitches due to all the mods and custom content she has to make the series the best as possible. Lauren also likes playing Scary games like Tattletail, Paranormal Activity."

11. ImSarahDaniels

Instagram: @sarahdaniels

Imsarahdaniels on Twitch. She's a variety gamer, but she's so much more than that. She's been a Disney princess (no, literally) and tours the country working in musical theater. She just finished a run as Sophie in Mamma Mia at the Arkansas Repetory Theater in Little Rock, and it's not the first time she's played that role. She's foul mouthed, and open about her life, and so welcoming to other streamers and gamers in general. She's snarky and funny and overall amazing to watch. 15/10 would recommend.

Instagram: @annemunition

"Anne will call people out on the regular for treating her differently because she’s a woman. It definitely makes me feel like I’m in a safe space which as a woman who enjoys watching game streaming is sometimes hard to come by."

14. Kaypea

Instagram: @kaypeahd

"KayPea!! She's a Toronto-based Twitch streamer who streams League of Legends. She's very sweet, funny, quirky, and all-around an amazing person who's breaking into this all-male pro gamer thing."

Mischacrossing is my absolute favourite gamer girl! She hosts chill streams on Twitch, and I love her Animal Crossing videos on YouTube!

16. Haylinic

Instagram: @haylinic

"HayliNic! She's such an amazing Twitch streamer, she's such a wonderful soul and kind person, one of the funniest people on Twitch IMO, but knows when to call someone out on their BS! She's also amazing in supporting women's rights, we've had incredible talks on feminism. Plus, she has two dogs and two cats and is on the way of becoming a mommy!"

"Optic Midnite! Her videos are awesome and it’s great to see a girl who can kick some ass in Call of Duty and other shooters, in what is such a male dominated platform!"

18. Lucahjin

Instagram: @lucahjin

"For years, my favorite female YouTube gamer has been lucahjin. She’s a constant positive, hilarious force in my life, and I’ve watched and rewatched almost all of her playthroughs. Whether it’s a classic JRPG like Suikoden, or a modern classic like Danganronpa, or any of the plethora of Nintendo games she’s done, she injects everything with a bright charisma. Through her interactions with her viewers on her streams and on social media, it’s clear that she genuinely cares about each and every person, and is just happy to be providing some entertainment and happiness. Whenever my mental health has taken a tumble Lucahjin is always there for me to binge and feel better."

19. Valkyrae

"Valkyrae! She’s so funny and genuinely interested in her fans. Takes time to actually read chat, subs and donations. Also plays with followers every now and then."

20. Mari and Stacy

Instagram: @geekremix

"Mari and Stacy of GeekRemix changed my life with their channel! Not only is their commentary hilarious (and informatively sex-positive most of the time, to boot!), but they also go in deep on every game they play. I'm talking in-depth theories about what will happen next, long discussions on how a game handles representation of women/mental illness/sexuality/race, and generally some of the coolest analysis of video games as narratives and as a special medium on the whole Internet."

21. Kpopp

Instagram: @poppkell

"Kpopp. She absolutely hilarious. I watch her every time I need a laugh and my day is instantly better. Not only that, but she has an amazing community built up. Everyone gets in on inside jokes and you feel like old friends even if you just showed up."

22. TheRPGMinx

Instagram: @mangaminxirl

"TheRPGMinx. You have to have a certain type of humor to like her, but if you have it you will always be by her side. She is very vocal about problems in the world and is not willing to take shit from anybody, which can be very refreshing if your not that type of person. She and her wife (KrismPro) stream on Twitch as KrinxShow."

23. Mari Takahashi

"Mari Takahashi from Smosh Games has been my favorite female gamer for such a long time! I love that she's not afraid to be present in male-dominated gaming spaces and boldly have fun no matter what!"
