Brooker’s style of humor is acerbic, savage, profane, and often controversial with surreal elements and a consistent satirical pessimism. In this short video Brooker gives us an insight into the world of video games. He delivers this presentation in a distinctive style, often joking at his own expense.
This documentary provides a short history of video games and their development. It also deals with the growing issue of the explicit content in certain video games and the gamer profiles which such games attract.
