Do you remember the days of going to the arcade and competing for the Highest Score on the machine? What about the days of All Day Tournaments? We use to go head to head.
Netflix is taking it back to those days in the upcoming release of High Score. High Score is a documentary series about the golden age of video games, when legends – from Pac-Man to Doom – were brought to life.
Through ingenuity and sheer force of will, computer pioneers and visionary artists from around the globe spawned the iconic worlds of Space Invaders, Final Fantasy, Street Fighter II, Mortal Kombat, Sonic the Hedgehog, MADDEN NFL, and beyond. Without rules or roadmaps, players and innovators alike pushed the limits of money to be made, rivals to be crushed, and hearts to be won. This is the story of the brains behind the pixels and how their unmatched innovation built a multi-billion dollar industry – almost by accident.
