Today we have a brand new series launching with one of our video contributors that we'll call Joe. We call him Joe because, well, that's his name. He is going to be taking a quite critical look at the gaming industry and telling it in a way that's all his own.

The two part series on 'We Need To Talk About gaming' is below.
