About The Game Theorists

Matthew Patrick is a video game theorist, self-professed nerd, and creator of The Game Theorists, a “Mythbusters for Gamers" YouTube channel with more than 5 million subscribers and 600+ million video views. Do you ever question why Donkey Kong wanted to steal the girl in the first place? Or wonder if Mario had a sinister side behind that jolly plumber persona? Matthew can help answer those questions. Dedicated to behind-the-scenes explorations and analyses of our beloved video games, @MatPatGT additionally surmises and speculates via his live-streaming channel GTLive launched in October 2015 and is a frequent guest on ScrewAttack! channels.
