Discuss and discover all the great games of yesteryear!
Really enjoyed the show. Although it was a list of 25 games that changed the world, they managed to squeeze many other games in too. I can understand the omission of racing games, FIFA games and even Sonic the Hedgehog. They've all played a big part in shaping the videogame industry, but I don't think they've changed the world in any way. It was nice to see some less mainstream games on it too - Night Trap, Hover Bovver, Chuckie Egg. It did get me thinking about what other games I would have included that changed the world. Pokémon perhaps, and maybe some social network game - something like Farmville, Candy Crush. I just find it fascinating how people find themselves helping out old schoolfriends with their farm, café, treasure island, whatever, via Facebook, but probably don't interact with them in any other way. I suppose Twitter was the step up from that, and its inclusion in the show did make me think that it really is like a game. For some, it's a sort of popularity game, with people who are seriously into it obsessing about how many followers they have, how many retweets they get, planning the content of their next tweet as if they are planning their next move in a video game. It's like a text-based version of Second Life, Runescape and the like.
Thought it was OK. The only trouble is that we won't get more games programming on TV and in five years time we'll be fobbed off with another history of video gaming programme...

Only caught the end with the final five games and thought "meh". The best thing I saw in the ten minutes or so that I saw was roughly 3 seconds of Doom.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
I was really looking forward to this not only for the gaming but also because it was done by the brilliant Charlie Brooker. However I found it very disappointing indeed, some of the game choices were very strange indeed and there were a lot of historical/factual mistakes. Meh.
There was a line that he used in one of his links that went something like... "those that I wont refer to as the titted gender." and I just thought that's so kind of not needed in a show about games and is sort of immature and puerile and only serves to enforce the stereotypes that many hold about gamers in the first place, but hey maybe im over thinking it.

I didn't spot anything untoward apart from arguing about the first female gaming icon being Lara Croft (when it was Samus Arun probably), but... elaborate?The Laird wrote:I was really looking forward to this not only for the gaming but also because it was done by the brilliant Charlie Brooker.
