"Video game documentaries are always iffy with me. They always seem to have some sort of an agenda. Whether it be to condemn violent games, talk about stereotypes in the gaming community, or promote an event of some sort, these video game themed documentaries are never made in a way that seems one hundred percent genuine. That is what makes World 1-1 such a fantastic film. It does not try and push an agenda on you, it simply tells a story through the eyes of people who lived through it and it does that job masterfully."
