Grab your Golden Joystick and give it a waggle, it's time to travel back to the 1990s and remember the underrated Channel 4 TV show, Gamesmaster.

From Dominik Diamond's various incarnations, his brief Hollywood replacement and how Mario 64 brought down one of the show's cult heroes, we embrace our 'dweeb' 12-year-old selves by delving into the classic TV series.

We also discuss:

  • The utter basics of Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Patrick Moore's many talents
  • How Gamesmaster was the precursor to YouTube, eSports and Twitch
  • The fine art of knob gags
  • The popstar whose proudest moment was winning a Golden Joystick
  • The surprisingly sad ending
  • Much more!

Clips used:

  • Gamesmaster (Channel 4)
  • Gamesmaster 2021 (E4/YouTube)
