So as a lot of you guys have probably figured, I suck at posting regular stuff on Instagram haha. The truth is I kinda don't like taking photos of myself (Very weird considering I record myself playing games every day) and rarely do interesting stuff as I work a lot, so that's why there's barely anything to post here. However I got my hair cut today and figured I'd post it here just so there's something new haha (Moral of the story: Get ur hair cut)
He has millions of subscribers, and his online fame has helped him gain numerous opportunities. As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Online Beginnings
Very little is known about Ryan’s life before his rise to fame as he has not shared a lot of details regarding his childhood, family, and education, including his surname It is known that he was very interested in video games at a young age, and he eventually saw the potential for a video gaming-related career on the website YouTube.
YouTube is a video sharing website owned by Google, which was originally the idea of three former PayPal employees. It allows users to upload their own content for others to view, who can then interact on a video using comments, ratings, shares, and other features – they also have the option to subscribe to other users. The service was launched in 2005, and since then it has become one of the largest sources of video related media online. Numerous types of videos can be seen on the website including music videos, video clips, documentaries, video blogs (vlogs), educational videos, and many more.
It has even attracted the attention of numerous companies and corporations wanting to take advantage of the popularity of the platform.
Ryan first established himself on YouTube as half of the duo called 8-BitGaming; the other personality is named Bazamalam, who was previously known as Other Ryan. They started their channel in 2015, playing several horror games such as “The Midnight Man”, “Vapour”, and “Vanish: The Game”. Focusing on the horror genre saw their popularity significantly increase, especially when they started to play the game “Five Nights at Freddy’s” (FNaF).
It is a video game franchise which initially started as an independent game created by Scott Cawthon. During the early iterations of the game, players played a nighttime security guard for a fictional restaurant named Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, inspired by restaurants such as Chuck E. Cheese. Players must then utilize several tools to help them survive the night against animatronic characters of the restaurant with homicidal tendencies, who come to life during the night. The game has become so popular that six games have been released related to the franchise. There have also been three novel adaptations, guide books, activity books, and other forms of media related to the franchise.
A year after beginning his journey with 8-BitGaming, 8-BitRyan decided to create his own personal channel, which focuses on him playing games solo, and gaining more creative control with his videos. He continued the theme of playing horror video games, but also started to include other genres of games as well. Due to his popularity with the first channel, his second channel also gained a lot of traction thanks to its “Five Night’s at Freddy’s” content.
He also gained a lot of attention for his videos playing “Hello Neighbor”, a survival stealth horror game created by Dynamic Pixels, with players taking control of a character who must successfully sneak into the basement of their neighbor’s house to find out the secret that he is hiding. One of the main selling points of the game was its artificial intelligence (AI), that changes the behavior of the neighbor depending on the player’s past actions. Meaning that if the player tries the same strategy as before, they will discover the neighbor patrolling paths the player used in the previous attempt, while also setting up traps. His second channel has proven highly successful that it even surpassed the subscriber count of 8-BitGaming.
