Games are so diverse in how they affect culture. So happy someone is talking about it.
Been thinking about this for years
Games are an art form, and are having a huge impact on the world. A whole generation growing up on games, gaming dynamics in everything from brushing your teeth and weight loss to actual games, Amazon buying Twitch for billions. This show is taking a unique approach on a topic that's been right in front of us for years. Can't wait.
