Matthew Robert Patrick[3][4] (born November 15, 1986),[5] better known by his screen name MatPat, is an American Internet personality and the creator and narrator of the YouTube webseries The Game Theorists (better known as Game Theory). MatPat also created and narrates the spinoffs of Game Theory which is called The Film Theorists (also known as Film Theory) and The Food Theorists (also known as Food Theory) respectively. Game Theory centers on topics such as the logic, scientific accuracy, and lore of various video games and the gaming industry. Film Theory and Food Theory focuses on cinema/internet filmography and food franchises respectively.

In 2015, Patrick created one of YouTube's first live gaming channels, GTLive, and in 2016, he created the YouTube Premium series MatPat's Game Lab. In 2018, MatPat joined Joey Graceffa along with other YouTuber guests on the third season of Graceffa's YouTube Premium series Escape the Night. He made an appearance on Season 4, first for the opening of Episode 1 and then as an assistant in Episode 6. As of February 2021, he has amassed over 28 million subscribers and over 5 billion views total across his four channels. Between July 1, 2016, and July 31, 2016, he starred in the game show The Runner. He also works with the musical web series Random Encounters and helps with special voice acting roles in songs.

Early life

Matthew Robert Patrick was born on November 15, 1986, in Medina County, Ohio.[citation needed] Growing up, Patrick took an interest in fine arts, especially musical theatre.[6] He was valedictorian of his high school, and attended Duke University on an academic scholarship, where he studied psychology and theater.[7] He graduated summa cum laude and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa.

After graduation, Patrick moved to New York City to pursue an acting career,[7] but after two years of near-total unemployment, he uploaded the promotional trailer for Game Theory, and four days later, he uploaded the first episode, explaining the scientific accuracy of the time-traveling mechanic in the SNES game Chrono Trigger.[8][9]

Career

YouTube

Patrick first created a YouTube account under the name "MatthewPatrick13" in 2009. He uploaded numerous videos of his performances and auditions for musical theatre, including one where he sang "It Takes Two" from the musical Hairspray.[10]

On April 18, 2011, he uploaded the first episode of Game Theory, discussing the relationship between reality and gaming in terms of science, math and culture. Inspired by the YouTube series Extra Credits episode "Tangential Learning", uploaded on March 23, 2011, he created Game Theory with the goal of creating "gaming's tangential learning experience" to show his abilities to companies that might watch his channel. He frequently uploads episodes covering Nintendo characters, as well as popular games such as Minecraft, Five Nights at Freddy's, Call of Duty and Pokémon, as well as numerous other games, some being creepypastas like Petscop. [11][12] Early on in the show's history, MatPat was interviewed by Ronnie "Oni" Edwards, host of the Internet show Random Internet Encounters. After this meeting, Ronnie accepted MatPat's offer to be Game Theory's main editor, as well as hosting the show Digressing & Sidequesting, which focused on game design. Before this, MatPat was the sole editor of the show. The first episode of Game Theory that Ronnie edited was "How Much is Minecraft Diamond Armor Worth?"[13] He occasionally uploaded videos commenting on the gaming market, as well as on other matters that he deemed noteworthy.[14] He gained subscribers and his videos were being posted on the front pages of sites such as ScrewAttack and GameTrailers.[15]

During its life, The Game Theorists has hosted numerous spin-offs and separate shows. The Game Theorists reached one million subscribers on December 17, 2013, and 10 million in July 2018. As of March 2022, The Game Theorists had 15.5 million subscribers and over 3.32 billion views. The channel's most popular upload is a video titled "Can Gamers SURVIVE the Real Mirror's Edge? - Game Lab". The video had over 95.5 million views as of March 2022 and was the first episode of the series MatPat's Game Lab. It features Patrick and several other popular gaming YouTubers attempting to complete parkour challenges in real life.

MatPat also holds the YouTube record for the most money donated in a single charity livestream.[citation needed] The amount of money donated when he first claimed this record was $1.38 million, which edged out PewDiePie's highest by just a little bit.[quantify] On December 1, 2020, MatPat broke his own record by donating $3.3 million by the end of another charity live stream that aired that day, lasting a little over 10 hours. Both streams had many other popular YouTubers in it as well, including Markiplier and TheOdd1sOut. Scott Cawthon, the creator of Five Nights at Freddy's, also had an appearance on the first stream. He created a new game called Freddy in Space 2 for the stream,[16] and in it was $500,000 of his own money that was up for charity. Although the gamers only found roughly $450,000, Cawthon donated the whole $500,000.[17] The stream was #1 on YouTube Trending for a full day (including while it was running) and even took over the YouTube Ad Banner on the home page of YouTube.[citation needed] The stream was just under ten hours long, a relatively short run time for this magnitude of a charity stream, with most running in excess of twelve hours and getting between $600,000 and $1 million.[citation needed] The money raised was all donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and at its peak, there were over 100,000 people watching. The stream received over 14 million views on the day it aired and raised a total of just a little over $3 million, which exceeded the initial goal of $1 million for this stream. This stream also received sponsorships from YouTube Originals and State Farm, who both contributed significant donations as well.[18] Additionally, many of the YouTubers on this stream, specifically Mark Rober, MrBeast, and ZHC, each promised to match donations up to $50,000, far exceeding expectations of MatPat and his wife. Again, as in 2019, the stream took the YouTube Ad Banner as its own for the duration of it.[citation needed] At its peak, the stream had roughly 320,000 people watching.[19] In 2021 Matpat announced that they would be doing their final charity livestream benefitting St Jude, titled "Game Theory's Million Dollar Challenge for St Jude". To expand on fundraising, Matpat rewarded members of the community fundraising prior to the event with incentives such as shirts, mousepads and backpacks themed around the initiative. Members were encouraged to fundraise by doing challenges inspired by food, movies, games and more.[20] After a 9 hour long livestream featuring over 50 guests, Game Theory raised 1.6 million dollars for St Jude, bringing the three year total to over 6 million dollars. Leading up to the 10 year anniversary of 'The Game Theorists', Matpat uploaded content to celebrate including a livestream, exposed video and a creation of his first theory. The recreation of the first theory, aptly titled "Game Theory: Dear MatPat, I Fixed Your Theory (First Episode Remastered)"[21] showcased the different editing styles present on the show throughout the years. Matpat also uploaded a video that worked to 'pull back the curtain' of working at Team Theorist.[22] It featured behind the scenes content, interviews with members and a walkthrough of each of the processes that go into making a standard 'Game Theory' video. They also launched '10 year anniversary' inspired merchandise at this time. Team theorist held a celebratory livestream on May 1, 2021 [23] taking a look back on the last decade of content. The livestream featured YouTube creators making video appearances to pass on their congratulations. Matpat and Steph played a 'Game Theory' Jeopardy parody with key members of Team Theorist including Jason Parker, Dan Seibert, Amy Roberts and Chris Wildin. The livestream featured a uniquely 'Game Theory' inspired video game by a group of dedicated fans.[24] The game titled "GT10" featured many Easter eggs to previous 'Game Theory' content. The game was later available for free to the general public, with a link to 'St Jude's Children's Research Hospital' if fans wished to make a donation.[25]

The Film Theorists

On May 12, 2015, Patrick created a second channel called The Film Theorists where he debuted his second show, Film Theory. The first video was uploaded on June 2, 2015, focusing on the prophecy of the chosen ones in the Harry Potter film series.[26] Film Theory follows the same formula as Game Theory, but focuses on films and series as well as the film industry as a whole instead of gaming. Film Theory has also been known to cover web series that are exclusive to YouTube, including Salad Fingers, Don't Hug Me I'm Scared, Hazbin Hotel and The Walten Files. In the first few years of Film Theory, they also included a show entitled 'Film Legends' which looked at reasons a movie may be the best. It was hosted by Jacob from Wisecrack, with the first episode looking at Captain America: Civil War.[27] Within a month of the first episode, The Film Theorists reached one million subscribers. As of March 2022, The Film Theorists had 10.6 million subscribers and over 2 billion views.[28] With the channels' most viewed episode being 'How to KILL DEADPOOL!' with over 23 million views.[29]

MatPat's Game Lab

On June 8, 2016, Patrick posted via his YouTube channel a new show, MatPat's Game Lab, on Google's paid subscription service, YouTube Premium. The show mainly focuses on placing video game players in real life scenarios mimicking scenarios that occur in video games, such as bomb defusing, parkour, survival and military training.[30][31][32] Despite MatPat's interest in developing a second season, YouTube has yet to announce any further development into the project.[33]

GTLive

Patrick with his wife Stephanie in 2018

Patrick started a Let's Play series called GTLive on August 26, 2015,[34] where he streams mostly gameplay and video reactions with his wife Stephanie on the GTLive channel he created on September 14, 2015. Streams are usually conducted at 4 pm PST. Regular guest appearances on the streams include Jason, the producer of GTLive, the co-producer Chris, who became part of the streams after standing in for Jason during his wedding, the Patricks' cat Skip, also known as "CatPat," Peepachu, a cushion in the form of a yellow, rabbit-shaped Peep and a llama plushie, referred to as "Drama Llama". Repeated themes of this live stream include "Mario Maker Wednesday" (abbr. "MMW"), "Motion-Control Thursday" and "Scary Games Friday" (abbr. "TGISGF" for "Thank Goodness It's Scary Games Friday"), also occasionally known as "Spoopy Games Friday". A common feature is the 'clap-and-a-half' which Patrick reclaimed from his seventh grade Social Studies teacher.[35] On one live stream, they used Verizon's in-game Minecraft smartphone for ordering pizza as well as taking "the worlds largest [in-game] selfie".[36]

Starting on October 3, 2016, the Monday streams became part of YouTube Gaming Primetime and are therefore scheduled for 3 pm to 5 pm PST. It also includes a voting mechanism, which can be used by Patrick to conduct quick polls.[37]

As of 2019, GTLive streams three days per week on average, garnering roughly 100,000 to 140,000 total viewers for each stream. The largest Live Stream gained roughly 170,000 viewers when it was live in mid 2019, and it was gameplay of one of the channel's most popular games, Kindergarten 2. In 2020, GTLive does not live stream and has instead uploaded unedited videos of roughly 40–70 minutes in duration 3-4 times a week. GTLive has since began streaming again every Friday, with Wednesday and Monday still the usually scheduled pre recorded video. However, due to the very long break from live streaming taken, their streams only average around 10,000-40,000 viewers at peak. As of March 2022, GTLive had 2.77 million subscribers and over 576 million views.

On April 3, 2017, Patrick announced that the show would go on a brief hiatus until April 25, 2017, due to VidCon Europe and scouting different filming locations.[38] Due to VidCon Australia, the show was again paused on September 4, 2017[39] and returned on September 26, 2017.[40]

As of 2022, the GTLive channel continues to upload mostly unedited, pre-recorded content. Including gameplay of Five Nights at Freddy's.[41] These videos include member of 'Team Theorist' 'Mirror Matt', working in the same role Jason and Chris used to as their GTLive technician.

Terrain of Magical Expertise

Patrick was involved in the web series TOME: Terrain of Magical Expertise. He gained the series more attention and exposure by uploading a re-mastered version of the first episode on the channel on October 1, 2013, and then providing a platform for the series.[42][43] Patrick, as well as many of the Game Theorists members, also provided their likeness as opponents in the RPG video game adaption. Patrick's character, Mattheorist, displays Green Lantern-like qualities with the ability to manifest green energy projectiles and creatures.[44] With the exception of Ronnie Edwards' character due to his death who was subsequently replaced by Austin Hourigan, Mattheorist among the other members are confirmed to be opponents that appear during the second chapter of the game.[45] The game was released on Steam on September 9, 2021.

The Food Theorists

The third Theory channel, and fourth overall; The Food Theorists began releasing videos in July 2020. It came at the tail end of multiple cryptic teases on Patrick's Twitter account.[46] As the name suggests, The Food Theorists, using the same style as its predecessors, blends food science with psychology, physiology, and conspiracy. The channel had been in the works for two years prior to its launch.[47] Videos that illustrate the direction of the channel include 'How to SURVIVE Spicy Food!'[48] and 'Chuck E Cheese Pizza, Should You Be Scared?';[49] the former conducting tests on how to mitigate capsaicin (inspired by the show Hot Ones) and the latter debunking the myth shared virally via social media that the pizza chain Chuck E. Cheese serves its uneaten pizza slices from previous customers to other ones. As of March 2022, The Food Theorists had 3.42 million subscribers and over 342 million views. It had reached 1 million subscribers exactly a week after launch, and had then gained another million over the succeeding 4 months.[50] The Food Theorists records some of their content in Matt and Steph's kitchen as they attempt to debunk the food science on camera. The channel's most viewed episode is "How Long Could You SURVIVE Locked In A Grocery Store?", with over 11 million views.[51]

The Theorist Media

In 2017, Matthew and Stephanie started The Theorist Media, a venture started to protect and advocate for small and upcoming creators and help them expand using analytic data. They have also partnered with big brands such as YouTube, Sony, Microsoft, Google and more to 'help companies move at the speed of internet culture'.[52] The Theorist Media also use what they learnt across the channels to aid in their research and data.

Other ventures

In 2017, Patrick and his wife Stephanie participated in Nintendo's Pokkén Tournament DX Invitational, an event held during E3 2017. He was paired with Allister Singh, the only pro-Pokkén Tournament player in the event. His team eventually won the tournament. In the tournament, Patrick played as Empoleon, while his wife played as Scizor.[53]

Patrick voiced Computron in the animated series Transformers: Titans Return.[54] A character based on Patrick was included in The Walking Dead: Road to Survival.[55] He was also a part of the PewDiePie YouTube Premium series Scare PewDiePie.[56]

In 2019, Patrick partnered with Nickelodeon to make the show Fact or Nicktion.[57] In this show, Patrick examined various phenomena in Nickelodeon shows, such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Avatar: The Last Airbender and Rugrats to determine whether they could or couldn't happen in real life. The show originally aired on the Nickelodeon Facebook account, but some episodes were later uploaded on the channel NickRewind [58] as well as Nickelodeons' website.[59]

Personal life

Matthew is married to Stephanie Patrick (née Cordato), whom he met while studying at Duke University. The two became close after creating a Legend of Zelda parody called The Epic of Stew. They were married on May 19, 2012.[60] Their son Oliver was born in 2018,[61] and the family currently divides their time between living in California and North Carolina.[62]
