Originally starting with skits centered around video games, Austin transitioned his focus to reviews and even crafted multiple video game series. Among them, the standout 'The X-Files' delved into peculiar video games and their enigmatic aspects, solidifying its status as a prominent fixture on his channel. Another creation of his, 'To Kill an Avatar,' revolved around dispatching characters and creatures within video games. Austin eventually discontinued these endeavors due to waning satisfaction with the content. Austin also produced hacking videos that divulged cheat codes and glitches for renowned titles such as 'Super Mario 64' and 'The Legend of Zelda.' A personal favorite of his is The Legend of Zelda series, notably marked by the inception of 'Skyward Sword' in November 2011, celebrated as 'Zelda Month.' Each subsequent November, he posted gameplay, reviews, and 'Top 10' compilations related to Zelda, concluding the tradition in 2016. His channel 'PeanutButterGamer' has now amassed over a million subscribers.
In 2010, Austin inaugurated his second YouTube channel, 'PBGGameplay,' predominantly featuring 'Let's Play,' 'Hardcore,' and 'Collection' videos. A highlight includes Austin's feat of gathering every mask in 'The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.' The 'Wind Waker HD Collection Series' showcased his exploration of every island, while 'Fallout 3' saw him acquire all bobbleheads. Collaborating with fellow reviewer Jeff Fabre, alias 'SpaceHamster,' Austin also initiated the 'PB&Jeff' series, in addition to hosting the popular Game Grumps.
Austin's third channel, devoted to memes, remains devoid of content. He and fellow gamer JonTron partnered to establish the video game website 'NormalBoots' in 2010. Hosting content like 'Did You Know Gaming?' and 'Indie Games Searchlight and Continue?,' was temporarily halted in 2012 due to better revenue opportunities from the Google AdSense program. Revived on January 24, 2014, 'NormalBoots' also spawned a YouTube channel on May 8, 2017. Austin's distinctive comedic approach is a hallmark, evident in his comic montages enriched with whimsical texts and effects. His content is underscored by meticulous editing and spontaneous humor, characterized by childlike exuberance. Beyond gaming, Austin maintains an active presence on various social media platforms, boasting a substantial Twitter following of 333 thousand and around 130 thousand Instagram followers. Furthermore, he manages a PBG merchandise line available on theyetee.com.
