The King of Kong: A fist full of quarters

Postby Hugo. » 12 May 2012, 18:49

One of the best films i've seen in a LONG time. Almost seems scripted (albeit by the most insane scrptwriters ever) at times, its that mental.

I strongly advise watching it if/when you get the time. :santa:

There's a very similar documentary called "Chasing Ghosts: Beyond the Arcade" It's more of an overview of Twin Galaxies and it features that Billy hard-on bearer along with six or seven equally twisted gamers from the 80s.



The one about competitive Scrabble called "Word Wars" is pretty messed up too.
