The 90 minute docudrama explores different issues regarding violence and adult content seen in video games. It expresses that the effect of 18+ rated video games are relevant today, despite being based on the GTA games released years ago. In this sense, the short film is valuable as it spreads light on the on-going issue of video game content, and allows viewers to be reminded of previous events, such as the Devin Moore case which is mentioned.
However, in my opinion, the Gamechangers was not very engaging and lost its excitement as it progressed. As many have said, Daniel Radcliffe will forever been seen as Harry Potter, not matter how big of a beard he grows.
