For your summer geek pleasure, you should watch Man vs. Snake. A movie about the gaming from yesteryear and the champions that belonged to that age of gaming. These guys took gaming as seriously as a heart attack and were pro-gamers before anybody knew what that was.
I’m not going to say too much about the movie, you really should watch it (here) on Netflix. But this documentary will put quite a bit of gaming history in context. Man vs. Snake will make you appreciate the old skool arcades while you are at it. This all in a time when esports really didn’t exist and competing against each other was based on the scoreboard inside the game. But these guys did it. They went through an emotional roller coaster trying to get to that high score and also to beat the world record.
