While the online gaming community may be diverse, highly complex in terms of socio-technological structures, and usually has this form of meta-communication, it has actually proven to be a community over time and is largely growing beyond its social media counterparts. Be it small online interactions through its own discussion forum or huge interconnected networking activities, it has produced good players like the Kubz Scouts.

He became known in the online gaming community and won over most of his fans and listeners with his Yandere simulator myth videos. Jay also comments on fun games on his channel.
