Youtube has grown immensely over the past 5 years, and has connected the gaming community through let’s plays and walk-throughs. This allows us to not only watch people play through their games, but listen to their input while doing so. This creates a different experience each time you watch a video even if it is about the same game. ShaunPlaysGames ( one of the winners for BUZ Banter's comicon giveaway) is a youtuber that devotes his channel to lets-plays.

He plays on his pc and is currently playing though Tomb Raider, but Shaun didn’t always devote his videos to gaiming. When he started off on youtube 2 years ago he made vlogs and song covers (another niche community that youtube has to offer). He started putting up Minecraft videos on his vlogging channel, but it wasn’t until May of 2011 that he made a separate channel devoted to just gaming. His channel has reached 20 subscribers, and like most small youtubers, he hopes to gain more. Here is an interview with ShaunPlaysGames:
