AnderZEL started playing video games when he was around 8 years old, when his mother bought him and his brother an 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System. She then bought him a Gameboy and gave them a Nintendo 64 a few years after that. His favorite childhood games included Super Mario 64 on the Nintendo 64. He was first introduced to fps games by his uncle, who taught him to play Duke Nukem 3D. It took him a while to get into it, though.
He prefers playing on the PC over consoles. He started creating YouTube videos on November 16, 2008 because he wanted to learn how to make videos. His earlier content showed his friends on the Minecraft server he was playing on how to Branch Mine optimally. He found that he enjoyed it, so he kept it up. He soon gained followers, which motivated him to create even more content.
AnderZEL only started thinking about making a career out of video content creation when he hit 10,000 subscribers on YouTube and received partnership with them. Eventually, he decided that he was earning enough to focus on fulltime content creation, even though he was earning below minimum wage from his content at the time.
Although initially skeptical, his friends and family have come around to the idea of his becoming a professional streamer.
His content isn’t appropriate for children.
He has a brother.
Sunday – Thursday: ~16:00 UTC onwards for at least 8 hours per session.
His favorite band is ACDC and his favorite game of all time is Super Mario 64 .
I think people who start making videos on YouTube to get famous and stuff like that, they’re just gonna det themselves up for disappointment. So, don’t do it because of that. Do it because you want to try it and then it doesn’t really matter if you have a good PC and stuff like that. If you only do it because you want to try it and see if it’s fun, then do it. If you do it to make money or get big on YouTube, forget about it, because the chances that you’re ever going to do that is slim [to] none.
Don’t make ‘Let’s Plays’ because very few people search for ‘Let’s Plays’ and stuff like that on YouTube. It’s actually way better to do tutorials and ‘How to’ videos… Those are the kind of videos that give you search results and those are the kind of videos that give you the first subscribers. That’s how I got my first subscribers.
