I found this documentary very interesting and educational. The interviews with the videogame pioneers were the most intriguing and I think that older kids will enjoy watching the animation and graphics. As an adult who was a kid when Pacman was big, I found this a film that I could relate to. This film took me back to my Junior high and high school days. I think for Teens and Tweens, the film will keep their interest and they will enjoy seeing and learning the history of how it all started. I recommend for ages 11-18 for the educational aspects. I give this one 4 out of 5 stars. Reviewed by Denise B., KIDS FIRST! juror.
Featuring interviews with video game pioneers including Nolan Bushnell (the founder of Atari), David Crane (the co-founder of Activision), Noah Falstein (Chief Game Designer at Google), John Romero (the founder of ID Software), Todd Howard (director of Fallout 4), and many others, the film is a compendium of all of the groundbreaking games of the past 40 years, and includes original animation and iconic graphics. From Pong to Pac Man, Super Mario to Lara Croft, Doom, Grand Theft Auto and beyond, this film tells the remarkable story of the fastest-evolving new media of all time.
