This weekend, I watched the outstanding movie \”The King of Kong.\” It\’s about two men who compete for the world high score in Donkey Kong. Plenty of drama and insight into the world of competitive video gaming, especially among guys in their 40s who have been up to it since their youth.
One small side story in the movie deals with a man named Roy Shildt who calls himself \”Mister Awesome.\” This video, not included in the film, talks about the trials and tribulations of Mister Awesome. It is truly not to be missed. (And is mildly NSFW.)
