The GamesMaster sadly passed away

For those growing up in Europe and old enough to remember, GamesMaster was an absolutely awesome show with cheesy screen effects and crazy kids being dealt gaming challenges in order to get their hands on the coveted golden joystick prize. In the midst of this madness was the GamesMaster, the all-knowing oracle of gaming played by Sir Patrick Moore, who would quip sarcastically at children as they just wanted to know how to get lots of blood in Mortal Kombat. (Culture, Retro)

I remember the Gamesmaster but just barely. I watched the Sky at Night as well. This is a sad day.

Requiescat in pace Patrick

RIP dude.

However, Games Master was garbage. Dominik Diamond making lame innuendo jokes about joystick waggling, and a bunch of kids that were always crap at the games.

Nothing worse than watching a Games Master Street Fighter II tournament..

Originally coming form Selsey Bill the town where Patrick Moore lived and died this is sad news indeed. RIP GamesMaster!!
