YouTube has been a platform that heavily supports gaming, and the top trending list for the video platform shows it with big representation in 2022.

Gaming and YouTube have been synonymous for years. Like every year, the top trending list for the juggernaut content creator platform has provided solid promotion towards gaming-based creators, especially from their audience. With all of the representation flocking from streaming sites like Twitch, YouTube’s gaming and streaming platform for content creators have seen a notable boost in 2022.

That being said, every year, YouTube unveils a trending list for several categories, and this year gaming has sniped some of the top accolades on the platform, including two of the top ten US-based videos, coming in at #1 overall and #3 overall, beating out the likes of top content creator MrBeast. The following are the top trending videos from YouTube in the US broken down by category in 2022.
