Status: Partially Lost

SomeOrdinaryGamers is a YouTube channel beginning in 2012 ran by Mutahar Anas and continuing to this day. While nowadays Mutahar is more known for his coverage of online drama, for the first six years of the channel’s existence he focused on reading Creepypasta in a series called Haunted Gaming. In 2017 he mass wiped his channel of most Haunted Gaming uploads, moving them to a side channel known as SomeOrdinaryArchives. However, there are still many videos that cannot be found on this channel.

Haunted Gaming

In March 2012, Mutahar uploaded his first video in the Haunted Gaming series, a reading of the Creepypasta “Pokémon: Creepy Black”. This series would take off far more compared to his other series, Nostalgic Gaming, leading him to continue it for the next six years. Over this time he produced hundreds of videos, often amassing around 500k views each.

However, on August 2nd, 2017, Mutahar announced that he had grown tired of reading Creepypasta and the direction the channel was going, along with being harassed and hit with false copyright strikes by the authors of the stories he had read. Therefore he was planning to delete all of the Haunted Gaming videos from his channel and “start over”[1], but not before creating a new side channel made to preserve these videos known as SomeOrdinaryArchives and over the period of August 4th, 2017 to September 15th, 2017, moving over 200 videos onto it. Even though this channel is official and holds many of the series’ videos, the re-uploads become increasingly spotty when it came to more recent videos, eventually stopping altogether with "Mankind"

As a result, third parties started their own search efforts to find the remaining episodes. Early archival efforts were primarily led by two YouTube channels, Dawn of SCP and Skelodevil601. The former of which focused on re-uploading videos preserved via the Wayback Machine. The latter appears to have possessed various audio recordings and thumbnails from episodes. However, he went one step further and created his own visuals for episodes in the style of the original videos. These mock-ups were very accurate to the source material and unfortunately were not labeled as such in some cases, this led to some confusion as to which episodes were fully found.

On 05/06/2023 Skelodevil601 deleted all his re-uploads and expressed that he does not want to be contacted about Haunted Gaming in the future. The videos, have been preserved and are readily available on the Internet Archive[2].  

Another person who has contributed to the search was Reddit user NecessaryGlitch, who had downloaded the episodes back when they were available in order to listen to them as audiobooks. These episodes were audio-only and had the intros and analysis portions removed. They have provided these recordings on request and many episodes are available thanks to their collection[3]. Most recent major find was the discovery and re-uploading of 9 formerly lost episodes by the YouTube user IQUnder30 on 09/04/2023.

List of Lost Videos

Since a complete list of episodes did not exist up to this point, a spreadsheet[4] of all videos from the series has been compiled by referencing YouTube’s defunct cross-posting feature.

Based on this list, the following videos were not re-uploaded by Mutahar and therefore can be considered lost.
