Dave Danzara’s film seeks to show that many aspects of today’s gaming scene are firmly rooted in the arcade culture of the 1980’s. And, he believes for this film to fulfill its destiny, it must focus not only on the games and the arcades themselves, but on the actual people who were the first to embrace the worldwide video game culture, capturing there memories and feelings on film as a oral history for future generations to study. The film, in particular, documents the lives and shared memories of the classic arcade collectors who grew up in the arcades.
