About Extra Credits

Popular weekly YouTube channel/webseries Extra Credits analyzes all things gaming. Created by Daniel Floyd and James Portnow, with a collective team of artists, Extra Credits covers video game topics in a series of animated lecture hall-style lessons, using visual imagery and puns to present subject explorations from gender discrimination to gamification and level design. Well-diversified across social media outlets and a coordinating blog, Extra Credits’ probes have helped assist the media and enlighten the public about breaking social media politics, including 2015 viral episode “The True Danger of Gamification”—explaining the controversial Chinese “Sesame Credit” social monitoring and citizen-rating platform—with 1.4M+ views.
