Who is DansGaming?
DansGaming was born in Ohio USA on 29 May 1986, so under the zodiac sign of Gemini and holding American nationality – he is popular for his gaming livestreams on his Twitch account.
Early life and education
DansGaming has not shared much about his childhood years or his family and siblings, as he prefers to keep these matters to himself. He once stated that he grew up playing video games such as “Super Mario Bros”, and has never stopped playing. After years of playing, it became popular to play games online against other people, and DansGaming wanted to be part of that.
He is said to have matriculated from a local high school in Ohio, but then set his college plans aside because he wanted to pursue his gaming career.
Career of a Twitch streamer
DansGaming’s career was launched the moment he opened his account on Twitch on which he currently has nearly 800,000 followers, and more than 110 million views of all his livestreams combined. He mostly does “Let’s Play’ livestream gameplays, which show people how to play a game, especially with new games. His “Chipin” option allows you to pay for his new releases and see them before other people, while he has also stated that this option is not connected to and will not determine how often he uploads his videos, and goes livestreaming.
DansGaming is also running his YouTube channel, which he launched on 22 February 2010 and has so far gathered more than 75,000 followers and nearly 19 million views on all his videos combined – his description reads ‘My playthroughs and highlights from http://www.twitch.tv/dansgaming will be uploaded to this YouTube page. I play all sorts of games from Retro Games to New Releases.’ Even though he uploads videos on a daily basis, his YouTube channel is not nearly as popular as his Twitch channel.
Besides working alone, DansGaming has worked with the GiantWaffle Twitch streamer on the “N3rdfusion” podcast.
DansGaming sometimes orders hard copies of games from Amazon and Gamestop, while he mostly buys the digital versions of games from Direct2Drive and Steam.
What make DansGaming happy?
During one of his interviews, DansGaming shared with his fans what is the thing which makes him feel joyful. His happiness comes from knowing people share the same emotions he felt while he was playing a particular game – DansGaming can play any game you imagine, but prefers to play games which carry strong emotions of sadness, joy, and heartache.

Personal life and relationships
DansGaming is another internet celebrity who has shared almost nothing about his personal life and his relationships, present or past, with the public. Judging by his social media accounts and his livestreams, he had a girlfriend but has recently broken up with her. The two were dating quite a while but it is not known why exactly did they broke up – DansGaming currently appears to be single, he hasn’t married, and doesn’t have any kids.
Is DansGaming gay?
We can conclude that DansGaming is not gay. He has been in a relationship with a girl until recently, but that is not enough proof as he could also be bisexual – he stated in one of his tweets in 2017 that he was a gay man. After investigating the situation a bit, it seems that DansGaming said this just to stay on the side of the LGBT community, as they were attacked on one of DansGaming’s earlier tweets. This decision seems to have left a bigger impact on his fans than he intended, as they began to believe that he was gay (the popular Twitch star doesn’t seem to bother to prove them otherwise).
Why do people like him?
People mostly seem to like DansGaming for his good sense of humor, while others like him for his useful ‘Let’s Play’ videos. The good thing about DansGaming is the fact that he doesn’t see himself as anyone special, and doesn’t consider his channel to be ‘big’ – he has his feet firmly on the ground, and sees himself as a ‘small’ or a rather normal broadcaster who simply has time and experience. He opened-up to other streamers on his Twitter account, and explained that every Twitch account streams in a unique way, and that he has been streaming for over five years to get where he is today. He stated that it takes time to create a bond with the viewers, which is something he likes to do, and now knows exactly what it takes to make a channel popular.
Another reason why people like DansGaming is because he isn’t trying to imitate anyone, but is always staying true to himself.
What is DansGaming’s real name?
DansGaming is one of the few people on the internet who has managed to keep their real names a secret. Even though many of his fans were and still are curious to find out his real name, he makes sure it stays just as he wants it too. Keeping a little mystery has never harmed anyone.
Appearance and net worth
DansGaming is currently 33 years old. He has black hair but is almost bald, has brown eyes, but his height and weight are not known.
According to authoritative sources, DansGaming’s current net worth is estimated to be over $3 million, and is slowly rising thanks to his Twitch and YouTube channels. He is said to be making over $20,000 per month or $240,000 per year from his Twitch account, but Twitch Partners and Affiliates are said to receive up to 50% of that money.
Social media presence
DansGaming is quite active on other social media platforms – he launched his Twitter account in March 2010, and has so far gathered over 120,000 followers and tweeted nearly 46,000 times. His Instagram account is followed by over 5,500 people, while he has uploaded more than 110 pictures on it – he has a Facebook page as well, which is followed by nearly 6,000 people.
