Anyone else watching it? Great insight to the gaming world of the past. Really interesting how the industry has evolved.

Yes I've been watching it, just finished the fighting one. Really enjoying it so far. The first couple of episodes are a bit before my time, but the Mario/Sonic and fighting games are when I was really into gaming. Getting a SNES and Street Fighter 2 Turbo for Xmas 93 is probably the most excited I've ever been :lol:

Yeah the Street Fighter episode is interesting, although I never really got into Street Fighter 2 a lot of friends did and its such an iconic game. I never really thought about the back ground being so important in that game, but it really is!

Yes mate! Discovered it about a week ago and binge watched it all. Really interesting. So much in it that took me back and so much I didn’t know. Fascinating to hear how some of the games and characters came about. I feel lucky to be old enough to have seen the start of video games. Our first console was an Atari 2600 and my first computer a BBC Acorn. They touched on it in the documentary but what a lot of people don’t realise is how big PC gaming was in the 80’s. Yes some people had consoles or both but until/before the Megadrive and SNES days early 90’s, almost everyone played their games on computers. Spectrums, Commodores, Amstrads etc. Prob because the games were cheaper and there were more of them.
