Introduction and Welcome

If you have landed here you may have been searching for a GamesMaster fan site or any GM TV show related stuff.

This blog is an addition to the GamesMasterDotTV youtube channel and all gaming and retro gaming articles including respects to GamesMaster itself.

For those who do not know of the GM show;

"GamesMaster was a British television show, screened on Channel 4 from 1992 to 1998, and was the first ever UK television show dedicated to computer and video games." - Wiki

Fan Sites:

There has been various fan sites over the years especially the first one which was quite successful, unfortunately this has now gone.

There is a dedicated FaceBook page here: https://www.facebook.com/gamesmasterhd which has a guy working on Restoration of the GM video and other cool stuff.

Please note the website http://www.gamesmasterhd.co.uk is non functional at this time?

Resurrection?

I am sure that the original fans of the series would love to see a revamp, to those who are sceptical that this would not work, please keep in mind the following:

  • Gaming videos are bigger than ever online.
  • There are older gamers now that would appreciated an adult theme .
  • This could be distributed cheaper and online.
  • The gaming industry is now worth more than the movie industry.

Something that would be very interesting would be a "Bring Back" GamesMaster with Justin Lee Collins, come on you know it would work!

If not the original GM then shows like this with the same format would be appreicated.

  1. I know Guru Larry from YouTube has pitched ideas for competitive TV shows to certain networks... but with little success. Who's to say 2015 won't be the year the competitive gaming TV show returns! I hope so. :)

    1. Larry, i remember him from a long time ago, a great artist also. I am always surprised that there isn't more competitive gaming shows especially in this day and age when gaming is bigger than ever.
