My son is 5. He loves playing games on my Wii U. We play a lot of coop as well.
I think one thing is that we dont let him watch that kind of programming on Youtube. Generally he is only allowed to watch "shows" and "cartoons". Similar to what we had when we were kids, but just a lot more choice! I would never let him watch a lets play or an unboxing of a toy etc.
I really don’t get the whole toy channel thing. My buddy has kids and often they’ll just watch playlists of YouTube videos of some stay at home dad and his kids opening new toys and and playing with them. And this dude makes money through YouTube off this. Why? Why would you video tape your kids all the time playing with toys that probably will be thrown away in a week? It’s just so wasteful and decadent to the point of absurdity.
Like I can maybe understand watching someone play a game you can’t afford or have to wait for Christmas for your parents to buy, but watching other kids play with toys is just fucking sad.
