Have you ever been relegated to watching everyone else play a video game because they're one controller short? This show epitomises that feeling, as you watch comedians battle it out on everything from Tetris to Temple Run. Luckily, O Briain can host the heck out of a panel show, so it shouldn't work but somehow it does. This week, Jason Manford joins the teams for a game of Fifa 16 and the very retro Asteroids.
