Behind The Youtuber (MatPat)



     Matthew Robert Patrick or more famously known as MatPat was born November 15, 1986. Matthew made his first YouTube account in 2009 as “MatthewPatrick13”. Matthew’s first videos were musical performances and auditions. On April 18, 2011, he started his first and as of now most successful channel (The Game Theorist) where he analyzes video games and tries to solve theories with science. Along with his channel The Game Theorist he created his “show” Game Theory. Game Theory’s episodes cover Nintendo characters and games such as Minecraft, FNAF (Five Nights at Freddy’s), Call Of Duty, Pokemon, and many more.

       In 2014 Matthew created his second and ironically his second most popular channel Film Theory. Matthew uploaded his first video to Film Theory on June 2, 2015.  Like Game Theory, Film Theory takes something very unrealistic or a very commonly asked question and tries to solve it with science. Film Theory has 6+ million subscribers as of now and like Game Theory keeps encountering more questions that he will try his best to answer. Although  Film Theory tries to put logic into all films they mostly focus on the genre of SCI-FI, think of Star Wars or the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).

    Last but not least we have Matthew’s third and final channel GTLive. GTLive (Game Theory Live) is just Matthew and his wife Stephanie playing video games Live. GTLive was created August 26, 2015. Matthew and Stephanie usually start their live streams at 4 pm PST. Hopefully Game Theory, Film Theory, and GTLive all continue and live on for a very long time.
