A few guys and I went to GenCon this year to shoot a documentary. We are finally cutting the film and I wanted to ask if any one knew of any other gaming doc’s for me to watch. I am trying to get a feel for what is out there so we can bring something new to the table. Thanks.

King of Kong is a pretty recent and popular documentary. Donkey Kong is kind of the side focus to this movie though. The main focus was on the players themselves and the drama between both of them to beat the high score.

Another documentary series I remember watching was on Discovery Channel called 'Rise of the Video Game'. There were about five 1 hour episodes that spoke a lot of where video games originated from and it's progression through time.

Good luck on the documentary!

There's a movie called Frag, it's about competitive pro gaming though. Frag (2008)

Thanks for the replies. King of Kong is turning out to be pretty popular across all the gaming worlds. I will look into Frag too. I saw most of the documentary on Discovery channel. It was interesting to say the least.

Hey everyone, thanks for the movie suggestions. The fellow hobos and I have watched the suggestions and received all the data back from our first focus groups. Our next cut will be a big one with the final layout fairly set. If you would like to see our movie trailers and read our blog check us out at the link in my signature. Later
