Retro Console Collecting - Interlude 2 (A Movie)

Greetings once again! I promise this post will be much shorter than my last one, and for once, I won't be talking about console collecting and me me me. Nope, I'm going to talk about a documentary that fits in quite nicely with the whole retro gaming theme of this blog.

I speak of this movie: The King of Kong.

The documentary chronicles the attempt to break the long-standing Donkey Kong world record score set back in 1982, a 23-year long standing record at the time of filming in this documentary.

Personally, I was awash with a feeling of nostalgia seeing the arcades in this movie, complete with all of the classic titles and gameplay footage. Not to mention, it reminded me of just how awesome and inspiring it could be to watch a master play one of these games in public.

If you enjoy retro gaming...heck any sort of gaming, I think you would do yourself a favor in watching this. It is a reminder of what it takes to be the best...not only in gaming, but in anything in life.

Oh, and for the record? I checked out what the current highscore for DK is now, do yourself a favor and look that up only after you've watched the film.
