I thought that maybe, with all the wild animals out there, that they should have put up a fence. But I think this big old lump could have pulled it down in seconds. And if it was a leopard or a lion, they’d just have climbed over it. Probably not worth putting up a fence.
…but well worth a watch. A fun, potted history of computer gaming and it’s social impact. Delivered in a similar style to Charlie Brooker’s ‘Wipe’ series. Engaging, informative – even if you’ve never played a game in your life (or think you haven’t) you won’t be able to deny the impact the industry has had on the world over the past forty years.
If you’re going to do it, do it properly. If you’re one of those who (strangely) disagree with the whole thing but feel like you’re being coerced, this is the way to stick two fingers up to the establishment.
I watched the film starring Mark Wahlberg and then the series starring Ryan Phillipe recently. The film first, then gave it a week, then started the series. Although both have pretty much the same story (Wahlberg was exec producer for the series), I quite enjoyed both. I’m starting the second series, (all are on Netflix) but now we’re off story, so it will be interesting to see if it’s still any good or not…
