It seems like Jack Black can do it all; the guy can sing, play the guitar, act comedic and serious, and now, open a gaming channel on YouTube. Called Jablinski Games, Black already got a ton of subscribers on the channel due to his fame and has now released his very first video, not counting the announcement short and the one that thanks fans for subscribing.

Rather than play Fortnite or Red Dead Redemption 2, Black decides to go to the origin of gaming and we don’t mean Pong. Black goes to a place filled with pinball machines, claiming that they are what started gaming as a hobby. Honestly, it’s hard to argue with that logic since pinball requires a lot of patience, has scores that can be replaced, and is fairly addictive.

Also, video games based on pinball are still being made, with mixed results. There are even a number of licensed pinball games that use characters from Marvel, DC, Star Wars, and so much more.

Honestly, it’s pretty cool seeing Black focus on these since a lot of gaming channels don’t really bring up pinball unless it’s part of a franchise or a level in Sonic the Hedgehog. Seeing his son push away the camera is also cool since it shows that children will always find their parents lame, no matter how much they love them.

This is only the start of Black’s gaming channel and there will probably be more videos in the near future. It will be interesting to see how this affects his acting and music career.
