Anyone watched it? It was awesome! Especially the silly actors without any acting skills dressed as Bad Ass characters. :D
Loved it as a kid, but now I can't find the whole seasons anywhere, just a few episodes on youtube...

Bob Mills and Big Boy Barry. Used to watch it all the time, but not the best gaming show.

Like GamesMaster? That one was cool too. Not many other shows I know, didn't like Bad Influence at all...

I did used to like Bad Influence. Especially their "data blast" at the end.

Also liked GamesMaster, especially Patrick Moore. Never cared much or either of the main presenters though.

Dude, WTF? Weak!

Games World was frigging ace, especially when it went out every week day. Bob Mills was excellent, and Big Boy Barry's Joy Pad (or whatever it was called, with David Walliams in it) was very funny indeed. The only downside was the occasional appearance of that ****ing dickhead Dave 'Games Animal' Perry.

Plus, having Jet from Gladiators dressed in a tight rubber miniskirt (and riding whip) means it is an instant winner.

OK I will give you Jet, but as a whole show I just didn't get into it.. it was still a better attempt than most.

Did he win some gaming tournament in the UK or something?

He was a Games Magazine publisher and created the magazines Play, Games World, Mega Power... and a few others, so I suppose they thought he had some authority to be on a gaming show.

Not to be confused some someone else of the same name who was a great games developer at the time, creating games like Earthworm Jim.
