100 Yen: The Japanese Arcade Experience, a documentary about the amazing arcade culture!
Gamers of nearly every genre owe so much to arcades. Although forgotten in the majority of the western world, the roots of gaming and competition have stayed intact in Japan. So much of what we know as gamers has spawned from arcades, but arcades themselves have evolved - along with the culture that surrounds them.
100 Yen is a documentary by Strata Studios and Brad Crawford that dives headfirst into what makes Japan so unique when it comes to gaming culture. Shooting games, Fighting games and Rhythm games are the main focus of the hour long documentary, each genre being unique in the competition and growth of gaming.
Five story buildings devoted to video games is every gamer's dream, and a frequent reality in Tokyo. What most might relegate to a craze, or at best a stepping stone, from the 80's and 90's has thrived to become an unmatched gaming experience. With interviews from industry professionals, pro-gamers, icons, and casual gamers 100 Yen allows the aficionado to revel in the history, and a laymen to learn of the wonder.
