Family Gamer Talks is a show that invites video game players and critics to discuss their approach to reviewing games. They consider how video-games relate to the other aspects of their lives and how these connections make them feel about the game experience.
Lyrics War in Living Room
There’s a war, there’s a war, there’s a war in my living room
And I’m the one with the law, I’m the court marshall
We all know who you’re most afraid of
Not those ghosts those enemy soldiers
But your mum (with good reason)
I have to test everything that comes into this nest
When it comes to your soul I’m not easily controlled
We all know who’s the main consumer
I’m the one with all the power in this room (don’t forget it now)
Will it eat your brains will you move and shake like a zombie?
Will it stunt your legs and arms will you grow your thumbs only?
You know the world’s 3D and it’s green and it moves like your body
Shouldn’t you be out there climbing the tallest tree?
I always want what’s best for you and sometimes I fail and there’s nothing worse
I also always want what’s best for me so can you tell me what it’s going to do for me?
I am a lateral thinker, I am a problem solver, I am a miracle maker
I am your boundary keeper and I am your fierce believer
It’s written into my program
It’s written into my technology
It’s written deep into my bloodstream
This is my technology what’s yours?
