How Videogames Changed the World - Brooker

Recommended Posts

From Pong to Grand Theft Auto, Charlie Brooker delves into the history of videogames and pulls out a selection of its most significant titles.

From Atari to Angry Birds, How Videogames Changed the World explores how interactive entertainment evolved from a penny arcade diversion into a medium that some believe is art, and shows how it is changing the way we work, communicate and, of course, play.

Joined by Jonathan Ross, Dara O'Briain and gaming legends like Will Wright and John Romero, Brooker looks at how videogames have become the most progressive art form of the last 40 years.

This humorous and insightful tour will surprise and entertain the uninitiated and dedicated gamers alike.

I think Jon Snow just lives his life in a particular sort of bubble, and simply doesn't understand the world outside it. I saw him interview Armando Iannucci about Veep once, and he spent the first five minutes badgering him with questions about how he must have been inspired by Sarah Palin, despite the fact that just watching three minutes of the show will reveal that the main character is nothing like Sarah Palin whatsoever.

I liked how much he was appreciating the mil-porn in the Call of Duty opening, but once Lego Marvel came on he denounced it as being too violent.

The reporting of this has been a bit silly. One column made out that Snow didn't know what a kid was, whereas he was just asking for Brooker's definition.

Still a waste of 15 minutes watching it.
