Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

This mildly funny series offers a self-reflexive look at gaming culture and the people within it. While it highlights some of the misconceptions people have about gamers, it simultaneously reinforces common stereotypes about them. Meanwhile, it notes the potential for a gender-neutral playing field in the gaming world, while emphasizing visible sexism in the multiplayer universe.

There's lots of crude humor, which sometimes makes it hard to appreciate the more serious points the show is making. Nonetheless, Good Game portrays a humorous world that gamers will understand. Appearances by the show's creators, gaming personality Jesse Cox and host Michele Morrow, add to the quirky moments.
