When high school gamer Zach Taylor lands a scholarship to an exclusive video game design program led by billionaire gaming icon Marcus Bentton, his future takes a promising turn… as long as he can survive the intense freshmen project that eliminates half of the class in the first three months. Teamed up with determined group leader Sara and his brilliant yet socially awkward roommates, Donald and Phillip, the four set out to involve the entire campus in a quirky new social interactive game. As the project intensifies, Zach learns that his father is in financial trouble. Distracted and desperate to help, he accepts an opportunity to work with Bentton on a secretive and suspicious side project. Zach finds himself stretched to his limits and torn between his responsibility to the team and his desire to help his father. With nowhere else to turn, he confides in Professor Abbie Lambert and is forced to make a decision that will affect his future and the lives of everyone around him.

I really enjoyed watching Game of Your Life.  It is definitely a made for TV movie, but I thought the message the movie sent was excellent.  When I watched the screening of Game of Your Life the other day, I thought my husband and I would enjoy it based upon the fact that he loves video games.  However, I realized that this movie will be enjoyed by gamers and non-gamers alike.  The message of the movie urging us to focus on what is truly important in our lives is particularly poignant during this holiday season. It is wonderful to see family television that still had the courage to talk about what is important.

You can watch the the premiere of Game of Your Life is on Friday, December 2 on NBC at 8pm ET/7pm CT.  If you have teens and tweens make sure you invite them to come watch too!
