Video games, where did they begin? We have a new exclusive clip from the upcoming documentary Video Games: The Movie that delves deep into that question. Watch as narrator Sean Astin takes us back in time, to when Atari first introduced video games to the American youth culture, spawning a never-dying phenomenon that continues today. This scene will surely have you feeling nostalgic for the 80s, as it quickly breezes through archival footage of the arcade boom and all the classic games it brought in its wake, including Pole Position, Ms. Pac-Man and, of course, Pong.

Narrated by Sean Astin and featuring in-depth interviews with the godfathers who started it all, the icons of game design, and the geek gurus who are leading us into the future, Video Games: The Movie is a celebration of gaming from Atari to Xbox and an eye-opening look at what lies ahead.
