YouTube channel START has a new comedy web series called Game Shop. I have been watching it for a few episodes and thought this episode was worth sharing. The first few episodes delve into some fairly well covered territory but I enjoy that its about people in a Game Store. I like that the episodes are somewhat threaded and over time they revel more about certain characters.

You can go back and watch all 3 previous episodes of Game Shop. They contain people I have seen in other things, like episode 2 had one of the kids from JJ Abrams last film Super 8.

After watching it what did you think?

I was amused, but I can't see myself watching more of it. I swear I recognize the dad from somewhere.

Though I did like the portrayal of "Dad" thinking that his son was wasting his life on video games, and then becoming captivated by a video game that is relevant to him. Games get a bad reputation, they're kids stuff right? But when you really get into them they're immersive art forms that can tell a story and evoke the same kinds of emotions that other art forms can.

You know? I think I will check out more of this. It seems shallow on the surface, but it seems to have a bigger story to tell. Maybe I'm overthinking something incredibly simple, but...
