Fong thinks that there is not much video game-related content available on television and because of that many game enthusiasts people are turning toward video-sharing platforms like YouTube. He feels that the kind of popular video games is now a day, it’s difficult for everyone to get the same kind of experience in the huge gaming world and that’s why they are more interested in such contents and it gives even more opportunity for such gaming channels and this is one of the reasons behind the success of online gaming channels. There is a huge fanbase on YouTube for gaming-related videos and one of the most subscribed and watched YouTube channels is PewDiePie, which is also a gaming video channel. PewDiePie is the most popular YouTube channel and the second most subscribed YouTube channel.  There was a time when Fong’s channel was getting more subscribers than PewDiePie.

Evan did not complete his study and dropped out of his university when he was in the second year, it was not an easy decision for him and his parents were not very supportive of him. He was not sure about his success on YouTube and kept changing his plans for YouTube and this took a little while for him to decide and take a call, once his YouTube channel started gaining success, he made a decision to stop his study and focus on his channel. Fong’s father used to play games on Playstation 3 with the name of ‘vanoss62‘, he picked his name ‘Vanoos’ from his dad’s Playstation id. He has changed his channel logo many times and finally, in 2015 he got the ‘VG’ which he is using now and it’s a combination of Bat and Owl shape with a prominent ‘V’ shape in it.
