Now the video featured above is a playthrough of Final Doom Level 32: The Plutonia Experiment where he shows how legendary the map is.

His video uploads primarily consist of Doom single segment, speed runs both on Ultraviolence and Nightmare difficulty. He’s also the first DOOM 2 speedrunner who claimed the first-ever Plutonia Experiment single-life run on Nightmare difficulty, and the first player to beat Doom using the hardest difficulty – the Ultra Nightmare mode – without dying. Need proof? Then check out the video above, a full playthrough of Zero Master playing Doom on Ultra Nightmare difficulty.
He’s one of the most recommended gaming Youtubers when it comes to Doom videos and playthroughs. With subscribers reaching up to 4,567 and views of 2,402,923, it shouldn’t be a wonder. He is known for uploading awesome playthroughs of popular video games, including Doom. His “Let’s Play” videos are not only informative, but also entertaining. Watch the video above where he plays Titan Manor, one of the Master Levels of Doom II, using Ultra-Violence difficulty.
AltimaMantoid, or simply Altima, is a Doom speedrunner with 3,840 subscribers and 2,406,902 views on his Youtube channel. He holds a few Doom Compet-N records and has a collection of Doom, The Ultimate Doom, Doom II: Hell on Earth, and Final Doom (TNT: Evilution and The Plutonia Experiment) playthrough videos. In his videos, he shows how to get through the different Doom levels while acquiring skills and unlocking secrets. From time to time, he accepts challenges from his subscribers to complete a Doom map with certain conditions or restrictions. Here is a Doom Level 1: Hangar for Playstation, with Altima showing 100% max kills and 100% unlocked secrets.
With 16,948 subscribers and 33,492,966 views, LingYan203 is one of the most popular Doom Youtubers out there. Which is why he landed the third spot in this list. His channel is pretty new, it was only launched last year. Managing to wrack up such whopping numbers in such a short time is a pretty impressive feat. Aside from Doom, his videos include playthroughs of games like Keen, Wolf3D and Quake Mods. The video above is a playthrough of Urania Level 26, Mephisto’s Coliseum, which is a 32-level megawad that requires Final Doom: The Plutonia Experiment in order to play.
With 3,106 subscribers and 3,446,974 views, Tatsurdcacocaco is the only Youtuber in this list who focuses exclusively on Doom in his channel. All of his videos are Doom-related. He mainly uploads speed running and challenge world records, and also holds Compet-N records and DSDA records. His speed runs are amazing and his regular gameplay (Stronghold Skulltag mod) is a thrill to watch. Here’s an example of one of his Compet-N records, where he plays Ultimate Doom EP 4: Thy Flesh Consumed.
BigMacDavis is not the Doom Youtuber with the highest subscribers and views in this list. He only has 23,765 and 8,010,244 views. But that’s not the reason he landed the top spot. It’s because of his top-notch Doom videos that are done in a comprehensive step by step by step style, which both newbies and seasoned players love. He makes sure to cover everything in his videos – from skills, to ammo to mods and secrets. Definitely a to-go guy for everything Doom. To demonstrate, here’s a walkthrough of Map 21 of Sycthe, using the Ultra-Violence difficulty mode on PC. Like Urania, Sycthe is a 32- level megawad in DOOM.
