  • Gamesmaster series was one of the first, if not the first tv program to cater for computer / console game fans.

    With the surge in popularity of video games in the mid-late 1990's a daring new game show was created to cater for the hungry kids that were completely starved of video game related tv. Each episode contained a number of challenges taking place on an up-to-date video game sometimes with celebrities taking place. Also there was a tips / help section where real members of the public could ask the gamesmaster (patrick moore) for advice. For the best part of the challenges they had semi-famous editors from video game magazines to voice over the challenges, this added a sport type feel and excitment. Winners in the challenges were awarded with a golden joystick award. The joystick was a quickshot joystick covered in gold paint with a perspex box surrounding it on its plynth. It paved the way for mass market socially accepted video game shows. Great classic TV for video game fans.
