Episode 1: TMW Meets Games – The Monkey Made Me Do It


We love computer games, here at Toy Meets World. We love playing them, touching them and sometimes smelling them. Like you would a woman or Thoroughbred filly. We’ve also been happy enough to watch people play them on YouTube and things. Adam is a writer, and always shied away from the penetrating gaze of his Samsung camera. Much like a woman, or Thoroughbred filly.

Fortune favours the brave, though, so with a little help from his friends, Adam decided to sit down and record a game show, wonderfully titled Toy Meets World Meets Games.

The show consists of three acts; a playthrough of a retro game; a competition round; and a… well, I’m not quite sure what happened, but it had a monkey in it and ended in bloodshed.

Episode two coming soon!
