Gamer Revolution

Anticipation builds in Seoul, South Korea as 20,000 screaming fans await the arrival of their video game idols for the ultimate game-off - Beatlemania 21st century style. In Romania, teens slave away in a "virtual sweatshop" racking up points for Westerners who are too busy to play their own games. And somewhere in a small town 100 miles from the Arctic Circle, the largest gathering of online gamers in the world is getting underway.

Computer games are a global phenomenon and a $25 billion dollar a year industry. Over 800 million people worldwide are regular players. GAMER REVOLUTION, shot in HD, is the first full-length documentary to look past the hype, paranoia, and hoopla to explore the real stories behind the computer game revolution.

GAMER REVOLUTION explores how computer games are not only a new medium for the 21st century, they are a massive form of change in our world." says Rachel Low, President, Red Apple Entertainment. "The idea of living inside a computer-generated universe is happening right now. The line between the real world and the virtual world is disappearing. Millions of people feel that they have a life inside these games."

Why don't the producers of Gamer Revolution consider America's Army as an example of game creators forwarding an agenda, but view the Palestinian game as promoting an agenda?

Haha, Jack Thompson, this must be an ancient documentary :')

and Anonymous:

Basically all conflicts are happening in the Middle east so for us westerners it's more than normal that the 'terrorists' happen to be Middle eastern people.

Arabs will be more inclined to have them kill us or israeli's because they see us as conflict starters and things like that.

Jack thompson is such a homo by the way.
