YouTube Gaming Monetization List

I started this list as a reference back when I was eligible for a partnership on YouTube and had the ability to monetize my gaming videos but it easily became the most popular page on my website. I'll try to keep this as updated as I can but this started with me sharing my personal experiences and research on these games several years ago and I no longer need to do so since I can't monetize my videos anymore. Still, hopefully, you will find it useful. I'll also indicate if it's safe to stream a game in a "Subscriber-Only" Twitch stream.

First of all, please read the important information page before you continue before you use this as a definitive resource for determining if you can monetize your videos. Secondly, make sure you click on the cover art or "read more details" for each developer and publisher to see more details and the sources of where I got that information.

In regards to this page, feel free to contact me if there's something I'm missing that you want me to add or if anything has changed since I posted it and needs to be updated.

 

Note: I'm currently in the process of completely revamping this part of my website from scratch so it is currently a work-in-progress and some of the data may be inaccurate or there may be issues with the design. I will remove this notice once I'm happier with where this project is at.
