What Is a Video Game Tier List

Well, a video game tier list or a tier list is a ranking sheet that allows you to place a group of game characters or names of the gameplay on multiple levels or layers, from your favorite ones to the least favorites. Learn to a gaming video for YouTube channel.

To rank your video game tier list, different alphabets, such as S,A,B,C,D,E, etc. are used to label each video game tier. Here, “S” means super, while “A,B,C,D,E..” are simply ranked in descending order.

Of course, it’s not categorically. You can come up with something original. For example, you can rank your tier list with any titles you like, such as “Amazing”, “ Great”, “Good”, “It’s, ok”, etc., and the list goes on.

Normally, a video game tier list is created as an image or a chart by Photoshop or other online tier list makers. However, it’s not as engaging as a tier list video that can be blended in your YouTube videos or used as video footage for gameplay live streaming.
