"Gamer Generation" on DHDT
A 2 part documentary titled "Gamer Generation" premiered this week on Discovery HD. I am always curios to see how the mainstream views gamers.
They had a significant bit of commentary by Clive Thompson and others that portrayed gamers as people who just want to get away from their everyday lives. There was a little bit of JT for spice, and a comment by him that actually made me think (I was surprised). The first part of the doc dealt with who gamers are, professional gaming, who is making games (America's Army), and what games do to people (insert JT comment here). Part 2 dealt with online gaming, power leveling, commerce in online games, and in general, I felt, made gamers look nerdy and stupid.
Did anyone else watch? Care to share your thoughts?
