Videogames are a big deal these days. They're a major consumer interest area and one of the most profitable media on the planet. As such, you'd rightly expect the media coverage around them to extend well beyond specialist magazines and web sites written by suave debonair international playboy types. Alas though, the mainstream media consistently gets things wrong, and Games Radar are not just talking about Fox News.
TV has long strived to crack the gamer demographic and get gamers back to using the tube for its originally intended purpose, but more often than not, what gamers have been presented with has been about as entertaining, informative and generally appealing as a roast testicle sandwich. So is all hope for a decent gaming TV show lost? Games Radar look back through the history of games on TV and see if they can find any reasons to be cheerful.
