I am a video gamer. I have collected everything from 8 bit to present generation -- and this is by far the least accurate and most lopsided documentary I have ever seen. According to this movie nobody made any historical contributions except Nintendo and Sony. Sega got maybe a 30 second mention as did Microsoft. PC Gaming is barely mentioned. Just about completely skipped arcade game companies like Capcom (Streetfighter II really revitalized arcades) or SNK, too. How can you talk about Super Nintendo exclusively for 16 bit? Genesis sold nearly the same # of consoles. Even NEC managed to sell 10 million during this generation and its not even mentioned as a footnote.
Terrible, awful -- clearly not worth the 5 bucks I paid for the DVD. So bad -- not even worth it for FREE on Netflix. Watch Atari: Game Over instead -- a vastly more fun documentary.
