At the beginning of a recent YouTube video, Braedan McGloghlon and his parents dance around as animated characters.

Braedan, a third grader at River Mill Elementary School, opens the video by telling viewers it's his first time playing Roblox Brookhaven with his mom and dad.

"Do you think they'll succeed?" Braedan asks. "Watch till the end to find out."

A roleplay game, Brookhaven lets players explore a town and purchase houses and cars. At the start of the video, the family walks down a street and Braedan buys them all a house.

With the help of his dad, several weeks ago Braedan started uploading videos to his YouTube channel, Braedan Plays. He hopes to share footage of his gameplay with people who are also interested in video games.

"I'm planning on never stopping," he said. "I just wanted people to see my videos, and maybe try the games that I play. I wanted to inspire them."

After Braedan records the gameplay on his computer, his dad edits the footage and they upload them online.

Braedan's favorite games to play are Minecraft, Roblox and Pokemon Sword and Shield. He's uploaded videos playing Among Us, a murder mystery set in space, and Roblox, a platform where people can create their own games.

One recent gaming moment that made him laugh was when he was chased while playing Zombie Recalls on Roblox.

"I was running from the zombie in a circle of doom," he said. "It was funny."

He enjoys showing his parents the ropes on new games.

"I get to laugh at (my dad) when he learns about it," he said.

Along with his family, Braedan also games with friends, though they haven't yet been featured on his YouTube channel.

His favorite part of creating new videos is watching them with his family. He also likes getting comments from viewers online.

"I get comments that sometimes say that 'that was really funny.' I thought that was nice," he said.

Braedan has around 70 followers on his channel. He hopes to reach 100 and eventually 1,000 followers.

He said the best part of being on YouTube is "having fun and playing video games."
