My mom previews this fall’s biggest games (including Assassin’s Creed 3 and Black Ops II)

GamesBeat's Mike Minotti: My mother is an absolute sweetheart and an angel. She also knows almost nothing about video games. So I thought I’d show her some trailers for the biggest games coming out this fall and record her reactions. The results…well, they were pretty special. (Assassin's Creed III, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Halo 4, New Super Mario Bros. U, PC, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

"Does this look fun?


Why not?

Well…it sort of looks like Mario, because you jump. It looks like…um….

What does it look like?

Like The Avengers. Like a low-class Avengers.

So what did you think of that one?

Eh, no."

i love your mum. she is very switched on.

This is a really neat idea, we all have that 1 person who just doesn't like videogames (usually ones mother) and it's always funny to watch them give their opinions.

Great Article.

My dad is like that, when he visits he will just sit down in the middle of a cutscene and start watching like it's a movie than when it cuts to gameplay he says some remark and wanders off lol

Call me a skeptic, but this just seems like some fiction to me. Write it up with some fun things you mom could have said.

But, at least it was a little entertaining, and for that I thank you.

I still have the audio recording. If you want to message me your email I can send you a snippet if you want proof :)

You see, that over top of the trailers would have been much better.

may you ask your mum to make more reviews on gaming. i like how she does not really know the gaming scene but gives an open hearted & honest review of a game from a NON-Gaming perspective.

loved the read. may i have some snippets of this. PM me if this is possible.

I'm glad this isn't a video on YouTube. I can just imagine the comments she'd get there....

That thought just gave me chills. I can't stand the thought of those horrible people.

"Umm…large buttons, and it tells you left, right, up, down, jump, walk…there should be a little ear piece that you put in you ear, and it’ll say, “Jump now!” "

his mom is very funny :p nice article.
