I did see a trailer for this a while back and did wonder if Ken and Roberta were in it, considering how important figures they, and Sierra, were in the early game business. I was going to watch this either way, but nice to know their work is acknowledged as well.

A bit unrelated, but anyone who wants to watch another documentary related to videogames watch King of Kongs: A fistful of quarters. I really liked it when I watched it almost a decade ago, but more recently found that for a lot of people it is top 3 documentary they ever watched. I will give it a new viewing soon.

There is a Netflix documentary out there called High Score. I strongly recommend it. Not all of it relates to adventure gaming, but there’s enough to relate to the entire evolution of gaming. And yes, Ken and Roberta are in it.

I watched it, I wished they had more pc game history in general. Some adventure game stuff an rpg stuff, and a lot about doom, but that is about it. I have seen 2 mini documentaries about night trap though, both are good and funny.

Ok, i get it, outta 258 mins, the adventure gaming genre gets only 10mins, that like 3-4% of the whole series, that is not unfair, that is just delusional and misconceptional!!, outta the 48-50 years of the gaming industry you have from 1984- 1997 where and when the adventure gaming genre was on the top of the market and the industry, that’s 13 years on top, not just being around as only a pattern or a fabric of the industry which is the state as always; so minimal speaking the genre should have had around 20% of the series attention, that is like 60mins outta 258 mins; which by the series time and percentage, is almost two episodes of the 6/the whole series.

what would you say about that?

The documentary was interesting but I feel that it’s not that well edited and tends to jump around too much without always a great guiding thread. And, yes I agree with you Alvie, adventure games are barely mentioned, pretty much only text adventures and mystery house.

I thought that this documentary was actually better and more fun to follow for people who had lived through it and were playing games in the last 30 years, I don’t think it would be great for anyone else and that’s pretty much a failure on their part.
