Tim Edwards with his chest out, talking about World of Warcraft on BBC breakfast.

I admire the presenters for trying their absolute hardest not to patronise the poor little gamers... unfortunately, they don't always succeed. Tut tut.

I particularly like how they've clearly encouraged Marijka to come dressed as a Night Elf, just for the purposes of making her look sad and crafting a joke out of it, which they use twice.

Not sure what I think of this, really. Nice that both sides have their say, but it doesn't really draw any conclusions other than "some people disagree with each other about whether playing the game is okay or not," and - frustratingly - neither 'expert' involved is allowed much air time to explain the argument properly.

Still worth a look.
