Games You Can Monetize In YouTube

Hey guys! What's up! For those who don't know, YouTube is getting really strict and somewhat out of control when it comes to copyright claims and copyright strikes specially with gaming related videos. This is affecting not only a few YouTube gaming channels but thousands of YouTube gaming channels.

YouTube doesn't care if you have a big channel or a small channel, if its Content ID System finds something worth tagging in your YouTube gaming channel then it will tag it with a copyright claim or, worse, a copyright strike.

To avoid getting hit by a copyright strike or a copyright claim, make sure you have all the necessary permissions needed in publishing your gaming related video in YouTube. Make sure you're not using copyrighted music and make sure you're not uploading game trailers or game cut-scenes.

Also, make sure you are only uploading gameplay or gaming related videos of games that allow YouTube Monetization.

To help you guys know which games allow YouTube Monetization, I will list in this blog post all the games that allow YouTube Monetization (at least, the ones that I know) through YouTube's partner program. I will list the name of the games and the link to their YouTube Video Policy.

Here is the list (not arranged in any order):

War Thunder

You are free to monetize your videos via the YouTube partner program and similar programs on other video sharing sites.

Infinite Crisis by Turbine

Hey guys, after checking into this further, the exact rules are that you can monetize on anything from our game, but nothing outside of our game. For example, don't put movie or comic stuff into your videos, and you're good. As long as the video is explicitly stuff from our game, you're good to go for monetization. — Celestrata, Turbine Community Team,
