Reviews

“A fascinating, eye-opening look at how video games are becoming the next-generation of sports.”
-Geoff Keighley, Spike TV

“Beautifully captured and wonderfully executed; Free to Play is a film about heart, passion and what drives us. Surely, it will become the definitive E-sports documentary, but really, it resonates well beyond. Free to Play is a remarkable film.”
-Lisanne Pajot & James Swirsky, Creators of Indie Game the Movie

“A fascinating and humanising insight into the world of eSports.”

I honestly thought this vid was going to be about e-sports and that end of gaming, but I was wrong.

This is a story about gamers, their lifestyles, why they love to game, and where gaming and game culture's place is in the world. It's really endearing to watch because I'm old enough to remember when gaming really wasn't 'normal'.

It actually made me proud to be a gamer.... that's something right?
