A long time ago, in a…. wait, wrong movie. Documentaries are normally a weakness for me. I sometimes have difficulties connecting with the people and the topics involved such as war, gold mining, criminals and claims of alien abductions.. But lately, I have found a small handful of movies that are about something that I can really relate to, video games.
War of the human mind and soul. That seemed to be one of the main themes of King of Kong, a Fistful of Quarters. But let me explain the main plot. Many years ago, a video game legend named Billy Mitchell did something that was unspeakable. He broke the world record for Centipede, Pac-Man and the main game of topic, Donkey Kong. But he was not the only one who was on the quest to break the records.
Steve Wiebe, a school teacher born in Seattle, WA, put a Donkey Kong Jr. cabinet into his garage and placed a Donkey Kong board inside of it and started his journey to break the record.
