Video Documentation of the World’s First Video Game Tournament.

The Year…1983

Twin Galaxies, the foremost authorities on video game high scores and player rankings held a two day contest to see who was the greatest video game player in the world. The finals of the event were taped and televised by the ABC reality program That’s Incredible! The TV show, along with fellow compatriots, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! and Real People , were the televised remains of what many who are fans of Exploitation Cinema know as the Mondo Movement. Documentaries with the basis to show the wilder, underground side of life ment more to shock rather then educate.

And I remember every bit of this.

Gosh, I’m old.
