Not worth watching!
Imagine a documentary about video game sounds….without ANY examples and without ANY video game music. Sadly, that’s what this documentary is. Endless interviews, endless talking. A lot of people you’ve never heard of talk about the game music business. Where are the famous composers? Where was Rob Hubbard, Martin Galway or Ben Daglish? Besides Chris Hülsbeck, no one I’ve ever heard of has made it into this documentary. Where are all the iconic game musics from Nintendo, C64 and Amiga? Where was “Last Ninja” or “Arcanoid”? Sad. Just sad. Instead of some game music, they played the same boring loop of music for 1 1/2 hours in the background of the interviews.
What makes a good documentary?
In my humble opinion it’s the ability of the filmmaker to make you interested in the subject even if you’re not particularly interested in it. I’m thinking Senna, Hand of God and many others.
Beep sadly turned a subject I am specifically interesting in and made it INCREDIBLY boring. Come on! The history of game sound, surely that’s an easy one. Just give us loads of examples of the classic games we’ve played and interview the composers about their influences and inspirations. This docco was so dry and uninspiring and long – 1.50 and boy did it drag. In a strange quirk of fate I’d just finished listening to the audiobook of Ready Player One this afternoon so was in a very, very sympathetic space for some video game sound nostalgia, sadly unrequited.
One thing I did notice is that no one who was being interviewed seemed relaxed so maybe that was the vibe that the interviewer (if that is the same person as the director) gave off. No one loosened up and spoke their story in a compelling manner. This is like an educational video that insiders to the industry will likely only enjoy. I’m a gamer, I play old games and new games and I thought it was dull as hell. If you’re not even interested in retro gaming then give this a wide berth as you will waste two hours watching it.
