The fine folks over at YouTube reached out to us an interesting video and statistics about Star Wars gaming videos on the platform. Most interesting is the love that people still have for Knights of the Old Republic. The game has been going strong for many years now. I have never been all that interested in Knights of the Old Republic for various reasons, but it seems to really resonate with many people.

In any case, check out even more information and the official press release below…

Today, YouTube Gaming released a new video celebrating Star Wars Day and highlighting some of the Star Wars content on the platform.

And these gaming videos aren’t just gameplay,  they also include incredible ways the community has gone above and beyond to bring the Star Wars universe to life, from fan-fiction cinematic masterpieces, to reenactments, to history lessons and deep lore from some of the best in the game.
