Missed potential
1 September 2016 | by (Slovakia) – See all my reviews

I do not consider myself a TV-show or movie critic but one thing I am I am the gamer and I feel offended by this TV-show.

VGHS makes gamers looks like dorks. After I saw the first episode I had to go throw up 4 times.

TV show is clearly set to the future where they have large touch pads on the wall or flat boarder-less monitors. The problem is though that the main dude plays on old IBM keyboard and old mouse without scroll button. OK you may say hes poor and he can not afford better. But his mother is playing some open-world RPG on large screen on the wall and he plays on PS2 Keyboard. Yes you have heard me PS2 connection keyboard that one with curly wire you remember that one. And he clearly plays FPS game with strange layout cos his movement on the keyboard consists from mashing z-x-c.

What Im trying to say is that this is a missed opportunity while you do not have to go to the future to make show about gaming. E-gaming is already here.\

Director of this piece clearly has no idea what gaming is or may be his experience with e-gaming is playing Mario cart on console.

And BTW there is match where one dude kills 10-1 match with mouse rested on the couch and without headphones.

Save yourself time and some stomach problems.

2/10 only cos there are worst ones.
