Nathan, better known online as Optimus (or Optimusgames, formerly ROBLOXandCODvids), is an American commentary YouTuber and streamer. He is most known for his opinions on the gaming industry, viral videos, Internet culture, and popular gaming franchise Call of Duty. 

History

Optimus started his YouTube channel on April 4, 2012 under the name ROBLOXandCODvids. His content, most of which has been made private, initially revolved around clips of him playing ROBLOX and commentating Modern Warfare 3 gameplay using an iPod Touch to record. For years, he made content that was generally aimless, and as a result, has been removed from public view.

On July 17, 2017, he uploaded a video titled, "Why I Now Hate Game Theory", which eventually garnered a few thousand views before MatPat of Game Theory reacted to it in an episode of GTLive. This caused the video to go viral and helped Optimus gain over 10,000 subscribers.

In early 2018, a few more videos went viral, including "The Day That Minecraft Died", which all contributed to his channel hitting 100,000 subscribers in August of 2018. Since then, his content has shifted towards commentary.
