Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Debuting over Britain's Sky One satellite service in 1993, Games World was a weekly 25-minute competition between some of England's best young computer-game players. The kids underwent a series of elimination rounds before squaring off for a final, winner-take-all contest. Naturally, the names of dozens of computer-game manufacturers were bandied about, in the fine old spirit of "promotional consideration." Over 100 episodes of Games World were toted up before the series' cancellation in 1996.
