Has anyone seen King of Kong?
It's a documentary about old-school arcade gamer geeks who can't let go of their glory days. It looks hilarious.

My wife and I watched it a few months ago. I found it to be kind of sad for several reasons.

1) It's a VIDEO GAME, not life. The challenger seems to have made so many sacrifices (re: family) to attempt breaking this world record.

2) The current champion comes off as an a**hole - pompous and arrogant, as if having the world record for 'donkey kong' is some worthy life's achievement

3) I think the 'regulartory board' that certifies the records is biased towards the 'old school' members. They never treated the new guy fairly, IMHO.

But it was one of those movies I could NOT stop watching...
