What I would recommend to do is as follows.

 

1. You capure your gaming videos. You may need to use some tools to capture them.

2. You import them into After Effects.

3. You edit and export them for Youtube. You need to check the format Youtube supports before you export them.

It is possible to do everything in after effects but ae is not optimized for video editing. It would be a slow process to edit and a slow process for outputting content. I'd recommend premiere and leave after-effects to what it is best for: motion design, titles, animation, VFX, etc.

AE is not a video editor and to make matters worse it doesn't play well with certain oddities that screen captured videos from games have liek variable framerates, so it would be a terrible idea to exclusively rely on it. As the others already suggested, have a look at Premiere Pro or other "real" editing programs and only use AE for fancying things up after you've assembled your clips.
