    Is this list only for like actual films that are released on dvds? Or can we link to ones that are just watchable online. For example this: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/featur...-volition.aspx

    List updated, and links to online documentaries are just fine!

    Does anyone have a source for Stella at 20?

    Blizzard made a documentary style video for their 20th anniversary awhile ago. I haven't played any Blizzard games, but I still liked the video.

    About SSFV I think, and pro street fighter player Mike Ross. It's not out yet but i'm sure it's going to be good.

    The 8bit Philosophy: A Commodore64 Symphony

    http://www.remix64.com/the_8bit_phil..._released.html

    Has a European chip-tune focus, but there are some good interviews with famous musicians like the guy who did the Giana Sisters tune (which I can't stand, personally).

    Randy Crihfield used to have some, and cheap, but I believe they've long since run out. Glenn Saunders, the copyright holder, had hoped/intended to put together an all-encompassing version with both volumes and additional footage out in one package, but I have no idea if he still has any intention of doing so.

    I don't know if this would count or go into the Honorable Mentions, but there is swlovinist's The Nuts and Bolts to Videogame Collecting: Volumes 1, 2, and 3.

    I have no idea who is doing this, and the official source of the teasers has been pulled offline, but the upcoming (I hope!!!) 8-Bit Generation looks to be the best of them all:

    http://youtu.be/N5tUZJ2p-r0

    I can't express how excited I am for this, I wish I knew who was making it! Teasers were put online in like March and then just...disappeared. This looks to be from someone who saved one. From what I can tell one of the other teasers had an interview clip with Jack Tramiel!

    Get Lamp is available online:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRhbcDzbGSU

    And if you can't get enough, Archive.org has all the extended interviews:
    http://www.archive.org/details/getlamp-interviews

    I remember the CBC aired a one-hour documentary-like thing called First Person Shooter somewhere between eight to ten years ago, but it's hard to find any references to it, aside from a brief blurb in the producer's bio. I guess someone could always message her for details?

    But in the process of searching, I did find this:
    http://www.cbc.ca/fifth/2008-2009/top_gun/

    We might as well count the Penn & Teller Bullshit episode if we're going that far, though.

    I remember a video game documentary on PBS called "The Video Game Revolution". I hope it is not listed.
