Attention television: that's (still) not how games work

Warning: bad TVJust when you thought film and TV was beginning to actually respect gaming and take it seriously, things like this pop up. Filled with horribly incorrect statements, the worst montage I’ve seen in ages, and some pretty outdated gamer stereotypes, I don’t think the guys behind the new TV show Life really bothered doing any research on gaming. It’s certainly obvious none of their writers have played any game since 1990.

The clip really speaks for itself, though. Watch in wonder as the team (are they police?) tries to get to level 10 on Prince of Persia in order to unlock the secret documents on the Xbox. Then get back to playing your games on your console (which really is just a harddrive with games on it) and cry that shows like this are on TV while shows like Arrested Development get canceled.
