The King of Kong

I know that’s what I was yelling at the TV towards the end of my most recent Netflix-ed Documentary called “The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters.”
I’m not sure how I stumbled onto this movie but I’m glad I did it is definitely worth a rent/watch. It’s simply about an underdog unemployed nobody from Washington who challenges the upper brass Nerds (capital N for a reason) of the competitive gaming world. This nobody, Steve Wiebe, decides after getting fired to challenge the twenty some year old record of Donkey Kong set by king of the Nerds, Billy Mitchell. In my eye’s it has a definite good guy vs. bad guy vibe that will make you, like it did me, wanna cheer Wiebe on to victory.
