Youtube and is Content License
Youtube will not let me make money off of a video because I do not own all the content. I bought the game, and part of a reviewers stand point is that I do not need permission to review a game. Please Help!

Without express permission from the creators of the game, you are not allowed to use any content for commercial purposes. It says so in every EULA I have ever seen.
I assume this falls under that rule, since you talk about making money using content from this game.

No one can deny you writing up reviews, but that's not the point.

Now, I'm not an expert, but the issue seems pretty clear to me.

Edit:
Also, you have not bought the game, you have paid for the limited use of the software - Under conditions that are stated in the EULA. And one of those conditions is simply that you may not use this software or parts of it for monetary gains.

Funnily enough, there does not seem to be an EULA for this game, at least it's not in the game folder. Oh well. I guess the rules still apply - I'm sure they have their Terms of Use on their homepage or something.

First problem is that you need permission to monetize when using content from a game. Go complain to congress/your local variant of congress about the broken copyright laws.

Second problem is youtube. Youtube uses automated systems to make and verify claims. These systems are often even worse than copyright law and there is no option for youtube's users and content uploaders to directly contact an employee without being part of a network/having the right connections.

Sadly if youtube is the problem you're pretty much screwed. Google stopped caring about the people who use youtube a long time ago and broke pretty much all contact options for anyone who does not have the right connections.
