Because of it and all the hype Brian gets invited to Video Game High School. It's about a kid and all the troubles of high school but in a very different way. It's a competitive gaming school. While attending VGHS Brian tries to make it to his dream of playing at the highest level of gaming. Along the way he develops a crush on Jenny Matrix, the JV FPS Captain. Written by
The only reason I truly had to dock this show any points is because of the cheesy one liners that often left you cringing. However, I must say that the overall flow of the show was quite nice, and provided a unique spin on gaming. Now it's obvious the character development could use some work as well, however, you must consider the fact that none of the writers/producers/directors had ever previously worked on an episodic series like VGHS. I believe that as a first time attempt at a series centrally about gaming, it was an effort not in vain. Although certain aspects of the show could use some work, I have to say that the show left me with a sweet taste in my mouth for more VGHS. This show allowed me to experience my teenage dream through someone else's eyes; And this is why I must give it the credit it is due. This is a series you should definitely give a chance. If you aren't pleased with season one, then I suggest you give the upcoming season Two a chance. They have taken many suggestions from the community, as well as from professional editors/writers, which should allow the story to develop further. VGHS is most definitely a series to watch for.
