Early life[ edit ] Charlton Brooker  was born on 3 March in Reading. He first worked as a writer and cartoonist for Oink! He claims that he did not graduate because his dissertation was written on video games, which was not an acceptable topic.
It was accompanied by photoshopped pictures of children smashing the skulls of monkeys with hammers, jumping on a badger with a pitchfork, and chainsawing an orang-utanamong other things. In OctoberBrooker and several other ex-writers were invited back to review a game for the th issue.
Brooker reviewed Euro Truck Simulator. From latehe wrote a regular series of columns in The Guardian supplement "G2" on Fridays called "Supposing", in which he free-associated on a set of vague what-if themes.
From October this column was expanded into a full-page section on Mondays, including samples from TVGoHome and Ignopedia, an occasional series of pseudo-articles on topics mostly suggested by readers.
The key theme behind Ignopedia was that, while Wikipedia is written and edited by thousands of users, Ignopedia would be written by a single sub-par person with little or no awareness of the facts. The Guardian withdrew the article from its website and published and endorsed an apology by Brooker.

In the final column,  he noted how increasingly difficult he found it to reconcile his role in mainstream media and TV production with his writing as a scabrous critic or to objectively criticise those he increasingly worked and socialised with.

This series was also the first to be given a primetime repeat on terrestrial television BBC Twoin January The first is the playing of clips from other television shows — both mainstream and obscure — interspersed with shots of Brooker, sitting in his living room,  delivering witty critiques on them.
The second is where Brooker explains, again with a slice of barbed humour, the way in which a particular area of the television industry operates. Also occasionally featured are animations by David Firth and guest contributions, which have included the poetry of Tim Keyand segments in which a guest explains their fascination with a certain television programme or genre.
Brooker has regularly experimented with Screenwipe, with some editions focusing on a specific theme.
