Storyline

For a select group of young men, video gaming isn't just a hobby, it's a job. To be a professional gamer, you need a competitive drive, tactical skill, and creativity. With increasingly larger prizes and six figure player salaries, e-sports is on the rise as a career. Good Game follows a new kind of athlete, the StarCraft 2 division of team Evil Geniuses, as they compete around the world to take the top prizes in the biggest tournaments. But between injuries, exhaustion, and egos, those who start at the top might not stay there for long. New superstars are waiting to take the spotlight, and wanting to succeed sometimes just isn't enough. Written by Anonymous

Good Game is good if you like games
6 March 2019 | by JayRiefSee all my reviews

A friend of mine recommended this to me - he's an avid gamer and has a podcast and YouTube series devoted to all things gaming - and I can totally appreciate the appeal to those enveloped in that world. While it's personally not my thing, it was kind of fascinating to see this whole other "society" devoted to the craft of Pro Gaming, particularly Starcraft. In my opinion, the subject kind of borders on the ridiculous, but that's mostly because I've never really been that into gaming (we were forced to play outside as kids, and as such, I never really developed the knack for video game systems). But "Good Game" is nonetheless an interesting look at the Evil Geniuses team and their efforts to make it in their chosen field of cutthroat competitiveness.
