They utilize a timeline to go through the history of gaming but quite literally skip over consoles/years that weren't Sony or Nintendo. For someone who is passionate about gaming and grew up during this timeline, it is really disheartening to know this is the documentary we as gamers are given. Once they skipped over Dreamcast I was tempted to turn it off but i trudged through it. Dreamcast was revolutionary in it's own way. The online gaming, web browser and VMU were pioneering future gaming. But that's never mentioned. Then they skipped over XBOX to go through a PS3 montage that showed Gears of War. It's incredible how poorly educated the creators of this documentary were. The entire documentary is snippets of interviews and montages. You can find better production on Youtube videos. Honestly, do yourself a favor and skip over this.
