The Rewind Recommends: These Five-Star Irish Politics Gaming Reviews

The Rewind Recommends: These Five-Star Irish Politics Gaming Reviews
By Donny Mahoney Updated

Lockdown #1 produced a number of internet heroes, from the farmer who shaved his head with sheep shears to the kid who drank Lucozade and started laughing uncontrollably. We've been in Lockdown #2 for almost a week now, and it's been heartening to see that the contentmen and contentwomen of the Irish internet are again stepping up to the plate.

We'd like to specifically single out a series of videos from comedy writer Aidan Fitzmaurice where he treats certain sectors of Irish politics as video games and offers up honest, warts-and-all vlog reviews on how the game plays. We enjoy gaming reviews and we enjoy political satire, and grateful that Fitzmaurice - who is artistic director of the Dublin comedy production company Fancy Vegas - has taken the time to combine the disparate artforms. His videos are completely loyal to the unkempt and unfussy genre of gaming reviews while politely blowtorching the Irish political establishment.

His review of 'Leo Varadkar: The Game' imagines a very cruel alternate reality where you have to fight Tiny Tim with his own crutch.

The first of these reviews that we saw imagines an Irish lockdown video game called 'Lockdown Level System' where you can play the Irish lockdown as a number of character, including the very powerful Meat Barron.

Fitzmaurice's most recent review is a deep dive into 'The Green Party Game' that has been frustrating a lot of people in Ireland over the past few months (and days!).

Luckily for gaming fans, the stuttering Irish political response to covid-19 ensures that Fitzmaurice will never run of content to review.
