I enjoyed Video games:the movie until the moron Designer: Cliff Bleszinski shows up, now I know he was an executive producer and wanted in on the act, but man he's so far up his own Ar$e it's unreal and I hate the fact that he thinks he knows what he's talking about, the man behind Gears of war or not, he treats viewers as if they are peasants and found myself looking else where when he appeared in the film.
Also they never touch on computers, simple early arcade games from the early eighties which the Americans love and been done to death on all other video game docs, which in turn makes the films very near sighted, and then covers consoles, again another missed opportunity to showcase this generation to its fullest.
I did enjoy it though, but nothing I haven't seen before and learned absolutely nothing from the film, no revelations or facts I didn't hear about, but of course with it been a documentary on video games it of course had to be added to the collection
There are many amazing films covering video game culture which have been listed above, but very few of them touch on the foundations of the lore of video games, Bedroom to billions is of course, one such film which I really enjoyed, but that even missed on computer culture of the 16-bit computer era in which nearly all involved in the film should and could of covered, yet again a missed opportunity , but a brilliant film and well worth getting none the less, but £50 is very rich in thought that a film you produce, people will throw there money at it, I think a little OTT in there marketing research
World 1-1, now this is something of a prodigy with the people they interviewed were incredibly in depth with what they spoken about during the film, but although it's essentially about the origins of Atari, you get an amazing insight to the culture and atmosphere of that period and the way most companies I'm sure acted during the 70's and 80's when Atari showed the world what it could do, so I think that with that the story of Atari (the real Atari) has been done, I think it's time now that somebody did the Commodore (resurrect that Jack Tramel doc) and Sinclair Spectrum era as a company profile within a film rather than its software, that's icing on the cake(the easy part) to include and I'm very sure it could be achieved too. As I feel there is so much yet to be covered in a video game documentary.
