I've seen King of Kong as well as the History Channel's video game documentary. Any others on there I should know about?

What? What does Netflix have to do with video game documentaries?

video game documentaries are movies. You can watch movies thru Netflix.

Chasing the Ghost: Beyond the Arcade is a worthy watch. Not too obscure. It revolves around the classic arcade players, many of whom were seen in King of Kong. There's definitely a torrent floating around.

It's not a history of video games per say, but the documentary Second Skin is available on Netflix. Here's the description:

"This documentary showcases how computer games' virtual worlds are transforming the lives of ordinary people, profiling a couple who fall in love online, a man addicted to playing games for hours on end and a tight-knit Indiana gaming community. Juan Carlos Pineiro-Escoriaza directs this riveting film that looks at video game culture and features interviews with players, designers, psychologists and critics."

Not sure if these are on Netflix yet, but a couple to watch for.

History Channel
Modern Marvels 80s tech. All kinds of back in time technology from the 80s including Video Games, Simon, Brick Cell Phone and the Delorean.
I'm gonna have to buy this episode on DVD.

G4 TV
Obnoxious loud game reviews similar to what you see in Gamestop. However does have a few Retro segments and game guides that are interesting.
