Around May 2015, I published a detailed article on how the video game industry came to have its own rating system. Feel free to (re)read it by clicking here.
Why am I talking about this? I recently watched a video by Joe and Dave, the guys behind Game Sack, an awesome Youtube show on games they like to review and talk about. I really love these guys and their attitudes. They genuinely make you want to chill with them and have a friendly talk about your favorite video games and/or some games that are worth mentioning.
Considering that one is a Sega fanboy and the other a Nintendo fanboy, having both their points of view talking about the systems and their games is a great plus.
Joe, Dave, if you ever happen to read this, thanks for all your awesome work on your videos!
The episode I’m referring to today is the “Controversial Games” one where they talk about games that caused an uproar when they hit the market. I’m talking about games like Mortal Kombat, Night Trap, Thrill Kill, Doom or GTAV.
I especially appreciated the fact that they discussed some of the events and arguments during the Committee Hearings. It was quite fun to see Nintendo and Sega throwing off each other, while they should have been working together to avoid any strict regulation from the government. Thankfully, this didn’t happen.
If you appreciated this episode, you should really check their other videos.
