Storyline

Über Goober focuses on the often-misunderstood, sometimes-controversial, and always-kind-of-geeky world of Gamers. Director Steve Metze examines several different groups including historical miniature gamers, role-players, and those known simply as "LARPers." The film also explores opposition from religious groups, negative media portrayals, and some of the meanest 'man-on-the-street' interviews ever committed to video. Meet the Gamers, learn their exotic language, see their bizarre rituals, gasp at their semi-authentic costumes, and thrill to the painting techniques on their miniatures! Written by Anonymous

Crazy Credits

There is a quote from Steve Jackson in the closing credits about how boring he thought the film would be when the director asked him for an interview. He was never interviewed due to scheduling conflicts, and later said after he'd seen the film that he really liked it and was glad it had gotten made. See more »

Excellent
11 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

Brilliant debut documentary. A gentle, affectionate humorous look at a misunderstood and often-reviled sub-culture, the gamers. Not as sarcastic or obviously tongue-in-cheek as Trekkies was to Star Trek fans. Gamers are presented as imaginative, goofy, friendly, sociable and somewhat anal-retentive. Demented and sad, but social. The LARPers (Live Action Role-Players) are sweet, but cringe-inducingly earnest as they weep for fallen characters or batter each other senseless with foam blades in a "Braveheart"-like battle-scene, complete with crashing soundtrack.
