May not be the greatest 'documentary' however props to the beeb for making a gaming related documentary in the first place it's quite rare (in the UK at least) that a gaming related documentary makes it into 'mainstream' television. Here's to more and better gaming docs in the future.

Scatpants2809d ago

Maybe he just really likes GTA.
