High Score is a documentary series about the golden age of video games, when legends – from Pac-Man to Doom – were brought to life. Of course, it wouldn't bring the legendary history of the Doom series justice if mods weren't mentioned!

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. The documentary series explores the story of the brains behind the pixels and how their unmatched innovation built a multi-billion dollar industry - almost by accident. You can watch the documentary on Netflix.


Looks interesting! :3
