Video Games, Up Through 2014
“Video Games: The Movie” aims to educate and entertain audiences about how video games are made, marketed, and consumed by looking back at gaming history and culture through the eyes of game developers, publishers, and consumers.

Immediately there are some concerns: the intro runs a bit too long (but the use of Queen is a good choice). And then we have the necessary interview of Wil Wheaton (who is less annoying than usual here), but also some nice unexpected gems like the creator of “Metal Gear Solid” and the president of Nintendo. And then there is Chris Hardwick, who comes across far more dorky than he does on television.

There are some interesting statistics on ages, genders of those who play and purchase video games. As people generally know, the ages have been increasing and more women are getting into the gaming scene.

The film goes somewhat into history, with Nolan Bushnell of Atari widely thought of as the father of video games. Yes, they tracked down Bushnell for an interview, and he in turn gives the “father” title to MIT scientists. We also get a nice description of pixels and “bits” for those not familiar. The history is, perhaps, too brief, with many systems getting no coverage at all, and much of it in no particular order.

We have the legendary tale of the E.T. game made in five weeks in the fall of 1982, which helped launch the term shovelware, and indirectly killed off the Atari.

If this was re-edited to be more in chronological order, it would be a stronger film, but it is not a bad one.

Boring and disjointed
If you knew nothing about video games before watching this, particularly the history of gaming, you’d arguably come out the end of this “movie” knowing even less.

The film goes into stuff like the politics around gaming, the social aspects, how stories now make up a big part of the gaming experience… basically all stuff you already knew because it was completely obvious, or didn’t want to know, because it’s too boring.

There is no in-depth information on any of the systems at all. It started out withe a brief history of the 2600 but pretty much every other machine is ignored, as are the games. The Sega Genesis was mentioned once and every one of their other consoles were completely left out. Hell, even Sonic the Hedgehog was completely absent!

I was expecting an in depth history of gaming, not a bunch of AAA execs sitting around talking about how the industry has changed and celebrities talking about what gaming means to them.

On top of that, when games were mentioned, they never showed the bloody things and the endless montages were totally useless, as again, you didn’t know what games you were looking at bar ones you’re already familiar with.

It had promise. They had a really cool 3D time line… if only they’d used it better and gone in depth into the different systems, key games, designers.

There was no mention of the “console wars”. As I mentioned earlier, Sega was completely left out of the film, as were Commodore, in fact, home computers were completely ignored, bar PC gamers with a few nods to Doom and WoW. How can they completely leave out the era of bedroom coders? Where was the info on how Atari died with the Jaguar? Where were the early CD-based consoles? WHERE WERE THE GAMES?!?!?!

I am a gamer and a game developer and I feel completely let down by this “documentary”.
