Mainstream Media Representation

This week on the show, we discuss how we – as gamers – are represented in the mainstream media. While being a gigantic industry, video games are still often perceived quite negatively in the media, whether it’s a news report linking gaming to violence or a popular TV show showing us all as antisocial nerds. There are a lot of damaging and just plain dumb stereotypes out there that make us look awful.

Join Cam, Elliot, Archer and Rachel as they discuss these perceptions by mainstream media, how damaging they can be to us as a community and the problem with those who don’t play video games having their points of view altered by these incorrect ideas. We also take you through the news of the week as always. Don’t miss any of the action!

For all the latest updates as always, head to our official website at checkpointgaming.net.
