Crazy Credits

For Season 2's first episode, they faked a Season 1 episode, complete with the original credits, only for the introductory segment to break down, whereupon Season 2 was 'loaded'. For all other Season 2 episodes, the correct credits were used. See more »

Fun and totally different to other video game shows
14 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There has been many video games shows made over the past 20 years or so but none have been as good as GamesMaster.

GamesMaster ran from 1992 until 1998, in a time when gaming was a more of a niche hobby than it is today, yet GamesMaster is still the best video games show ever.

Most other video game shows focus mainly on reviews and previews but GamesMaster's focus was on challenges making it more a game show than a video game show and this is what made it fun.

It seems very strange to me how Channel 4 commissioned a television show dedicated to video games in 1992 when it was really just a niche market for kids yet have no such programme in 2007 when video games are a huge hobby enjoyed by millions of people at any age.

Bring back GamesMaster!!
