    Pity I can't watch it here at work...

  • 2. Brain - Wed, 23 May 2007 17:57:15ZAfter watching that, I wanted to hug my monitor. Then my consoles. Then all those Sumeans out there. Springtime of youth love pours from me right now. *sniff*
  • 3. Apologetic abuser - Wed, 23 May 2007 18:38:1ZJust watched it... Loved it...

    Please mind your step around Brain's puddle of love...

  • 5. Anonymous Coward - Wed, 23 May 2007 19:36:33ZNot bad. Kind of sums up a lot of things that most non-gamers just don't appreciate about gaming, and, why it is so popular and so profound as an entertainment medium...

    Though, kinda gay as well... but I won't hold it against you ;)

Australian machinima artist and games designer Thuyen Nguyen has made what he calls a "love letter to video games." In response to negative mainstream perceptions of video games, his film, "The Most Powerful Person in the World," celebrates all that's good about games. His message is simple: games aren't so bad.
