Chasing Ghosts

I'm tired of waiting for this 2007 documentary to come to DVD, so I'm going to youtube it. Haven't seen it yet, but it has a 7.5 rating on imdb.com, and it's a topic I'm fascinated in: grown men who compete at early-80's arcade games.

As with King of Kong, Billy Mitchell seems to get lots of screen time here. How can he not? He's the champ. But we also get to know some other arcade legends like Mr. Awesome (the self-obsessed world record-holder of the "Missile Command" title) and many more.

Here's part 2. Part 1 has been pulled, presumably because of music infringement, but the remaining 70 minutes are all all here, for now.
