"Cry" isn't his real name, but everyone calls him Cry because of his username "Cryaotic". His Youtube username is Chaoticmonki (He made that when he was 13. Don't judge. XD). He started making videos a few years ago when he felt like he should do something more with his life other than playing World of Warcraft for 20 hours each day.
He usually known for his horror gaming, but he also plays smaller Indie games and games with a good story-line. People seem to enjoy his commentary on games, they find it pretty amusing and entertaining. Other than commentary, he also does "Cry Reads" where he read stories, mainly horror. He's also known to do Co-Op with another Let's Player called PewDiePie (Fans ship them together. Oh yay ) and he also does livestreams for about eight hours on Saturdays in which he plays video games online, answers questions about himself
Recently Cry's longest stream was the 24 hr stream for a charity event for 'all children's hospitals'. It started from 3pm EST (friday) and ended 3pm EST (saturday), raising about 21 thousand dollars where he had to change his 'money goal' about 4 times)
Cry is an over all nice guy and tries to be polite to his fans and to those who dislike him, but this doesn't stop him from being blunt about some topics.
He doesn't show his face and prefers to keep his identity a secret. Sometimes he messes up and reveals some information about how he looks. For example, he mentioned in some videos and livestreams that he wears eye glasses and doesn't have blond hair. He also told everyone that he's 23, Caucasian, not fat, and he doesn't have curly hair. However, instead of showing his face, he Identified him self as a little white character has been shown to, in most cases, have no arms and a single hair upon it's head. This white character, to fans, is called a "Cry guy", "Cry dude", "Sup guy" or just plainly "Cry". Recently there has been an increase of artists depicting Cry as a person with brown hair covering his eyes and nose with a mask the same as his character.
Since it's pretty clear that he won't show his identity pretty soon, people started to make jokes and spread rumors about his appearance. For instance, his friend Scott told everyone he's a 300 lb, blond-haired viking who has 4 arms and 3 nipples.
Other than YouTube, he also goes on Tumblr where he interacts with some of his Tumblr fans. He'd answer some questions and messages (Of course not all since he doesn't have enough time), comment and re-blog his fans post, and post meaningful messages(as well as random stuff) on his tumblr.
EDIT: This journal was published in 2012 (Cry's age: 23) and I will not continue to change his age every year. Just a reminder.
