Should probably see Doctor Mario about that.

I will miss Gaming Guru, Ellie Gibson, and her "upwards arcade shooters". A fountain of knowledge has been sadly lost...

But I thinking suffers for not really catering for its audience properly. It was absolutely enraging how many times they did app based games.

True. Suppose that was a consequence of the guests they were able to book: people who wanted TV appearances but were only casual gamers. They should have worried less about getting minor household names. Must be loads of lesser known talent with proper games experience. (That’s not being snobby about casual gamers. Just that shallow apps don’t make for good competitive TV challenges.)


I do think they needed the star names though. For instance my wife wouldnt have watched without relatively recognizable faces and I think this show worked not having great gamers all the time.

I like gameplay trailers, reviews and popping in and out of walkthroughs if I'm stuck, but nine times out of ten I find people playing videogames for any length of time to be a thoroughly boring experience, usually resulting in me sat there thinking to myself 'why the hell am I sat here wasting my time watching YOU play it when I could be playing it myself?'

So what you have is THE YUTE who would rather watch that type of thing on YouTube and social media, and then the conventional TV demographic (probably a lot of us) who think it's boring as gooseberry fool and don't want to watch it at all, leaving the audience who want to watch panel-show celebrities play videogames very small.
