Really good...till near the end.
11 August 2020 | by jhoffman4399See all my reviews

I thought the Documentary was very good. I thought it was informative, and really did a good job at going into the history of how video games came to be. Though as they aproached more modern times, they focused less on the consoles, and instead talked about things like Facebook App games and even Google Glass. And the ending was pretty bad. Ending with the hypothetical "what if the next step is combining ourselves with the tech?"

I thought it was great when talking about Atari, Activision, and early Nintendo. But it wasn't that great after that.
