  • The modern stuff is undeniably fawning. But given the eye-popping visuals, you understand the enthusiasm. Especially if you left your heart, and thousands of dollars in quarters, in an arcade. show more

  • The film’s scattershot approach proves more enervating than enlightening, with the barrage of information presented in such a haphazard manner that continuity and coherence become lost. show more

  • Jeremy Snead's doc comes off more as a commercial for a grand, overarching product that isn't finished being developed. show more

    As far as I can tell from the trailer, it looks pretty good. I interviewed many of these people for my ebook, "The History of Video Games" - http://www.amazon.com/History-Video-Games-Part-ebook/dp/B00CBO1DJA/ref =sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1365812248&sr=1-1&keywords =The+History+of+Video+Games+-+Part+1 -Mike Morrison
