I want to watch people playing old games

The emails we get are generally really, really boring. This morning, for example, there was the usual newswire update, a press release about a golf MMORPG, and something about voting for the model to dress up as some Spider-Man character at a comic convention.

So any email which looks like it was written by a real human being is a joy to receive. And just such a thing came from Sam, who’s running a MySpace profile for the UK release of King of Kong on DVD.

It’s a documentary about competitive retro gaming, and trying to beat world records. I love a good documentary film, and it looks like this is just that. I don’t think I’d heard of it before, which probably just means I’m massively out of touch. Sorry about that.

Now: does someone want to send me a copy?
