You don't have to be a gamer to enjoy this documentary. You don't even have to like games at all. The basic premise is you have a good guy (the one that wants to become the Donkey Kong Champion) and the bad guy (the one that will do whatever it takes to keep his belt). Even though this is a good film, I can't stand Billy Mitchell and his cronies. I've known a few of these types of people and it's just so  f u c k i n g   sad that these "adults" with families, kids and wives still refuse to grow up. They put such a premium on something that really has no relevance in the larger picture of life.

Billy wants to make himself out to get this grand messiah and feed his ego by having some pretty lame ass people around him, people that clearly couldn't get laid or even get a date. And they think that hanging out and doing Billy's bidding makes them feel "important" in life. It's this little clique of theirs, that's pretty pathetic at the lenghts they go to discredit the contender to the throne. If a movie can get me all riled up like that, it's doing something right.

Definitely recommend as a Rent.

was a different time and place....it's interesting though...I am actually glad I was a kid and not like 18-24 during the 70's....we were young enough to enjoy it...and not get our lives **** up by it.

there was nothing better than taking a dollar and throwing it in the machine and getting your 10 or 15 tokens!

hahahaha

Mr Bills or Supercade?

that would be pretty damn cool!

I have a couple from Supercade and maybe 1 from Mr. Bill's. Unfortunately I don't think I have Pacific Games at all. What tokens I still have are packed somewhere in a box.
