It's Only a Theory, a Game Theory. My Theory Is You Will Love It.
8 September 2019 | by JaxBlazeSee all my reviews

"Game Theory" is a YouTube show created and starring Matthew Patrick (a Diet Coke addicted band geek). The premise of the show is to take scientific principles and apply them to video games. How fast is Sonic? How high can Mario jump? Will FNAF ever end? All these questions and more will be answered (except the FNAF one, come on Scott). This show is Funny, smart, informative and suitable for most ages. Matthew Is a fantastic host and make some very complicated maths a little more accessible and fun.

I first found "Game Theory" in late 2012 whilst stuck in a lift at work during a power cut. I spent over two hours in that lift and "Game Theory" made a big part of that fly by (I also had a small nap, a paid nap at that). from that point on I was a regular viewer.

I cant recommend this show enough,

Jax Blaze.
