SPE­CIAL AD­VI­SOR

EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE FAVOURITES -

Wat­son’s most re­cent ap­point­ment has been as a vice pres­i­dent of gam­ing char­ity Spe­cial­Ef­fect, which uses games as well as be­spoke con­trollers and equip­ment to help im­prove the qual­ity of life of those with dis­abil­i­ties. He joins Tim Schafer, Andy Payne, Jo Twist, Richard Wil­son and BBC jour­nal­ist Kate Rus­sell, who have all be­come VPs this year. “I’m re­ally hon­oured about that,” Wat­son says. “‘I’m try­ing to work out what the best way is that I can help them, and I gen­uinely want to. So I’m try­ing to think what I could do – per­haps [or­gan­ise] a par­lia­men­tary gameathon or some­thing like that.”
