GamesMaster Sir Patrick Moore dies, age 89

I'm sad to hear the news, a lot of great oldies have died this year.
I'm no hero, never was, never will be, I'm just an old killer, hired to do a little wet work. sOLiD Snake, MGS4.

Gamesmaster was in its early years one of my all time favourite shows. Patrick Moore was a legend, and will be missed. R.I.P.

R.I.P. What an absolute legend, and a true scientific hero. I remember seeing the last ever series of Gamesmaster, didn't realise it was so long ago!
In similar news, I don't understand why there hasnt been a new TV show aimed at video games? If there was one aimed at kids in the morning, it'd be THE most talked about show, going by my experience in the playground as a kid.

I was thinking that when I read this! GamesMaster was awesome, I especially liked the 'cheats' section when Patrick would give tips and tricks on how to get an extra life on Mario for the gameboy or some s**t!

I think a gamesmaster show now-a-days would go down well after the simpsons on channel 4!

I hope its not like the PS access episodes tho, ive watched a few now and they seem to be too rushed , granted there only 10 minutes but they try to fit too much it

RIP Sir Moore

A true British science icon, could watch him all day as he brought the ridiculously complicated nature of astrology to an a supremely interesting and understandable level, a real legend. RIP

As a kid I only knew him as Gamesmaster too. It was such a must watch.

Rest in peace Sir Patrick.
