Nice!
21 June 2019 | by methmagaSee all my reviews

Both entertaining and informative with a nice personal feel to it. Certainly a must watch for everyone interested in the history of gaming. But would probably work for someone that are not very in to gaming, i m not, but it cant be denied that it is a big part of understanding kind of every philosophy of today; videogams are - like it or not - an artform for some of the last 100 years most creative humans. So i would recommend this to anyone and i am hoping that it will find a broad audience.
