Charlie Brooker sets his caustic sights on video games. Expect acerbic comment as he looks at the various genres, how they have changed since their early conception and how the media represents games and gamers. Features interviews with Dara O’Briain, sitcom scribe Graham Linehan and Rab and Ryan from Consolevania.
The one-off special was very similar to its predecessors, in that Brooker, along with a camera and various games consoles, reviewed and previewed video games in the same style as Screenwipe.
Brooker claimed that it would attempt to prove that video games can be just as engaging as television and just as dumb. He said to Expect pixels, joypads, some of the world’s weirdest games, celebrity cameos and the occasional sound effect.
