Not For Resale (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Not For Resale is an interesting and heartfelt look at the rise (and potentially fall ) of retro gaming – taking a closer look at the decline of physical media in the wider video game industry and the rise of digital only distribution.  Anyone that grew up with a 16 bit console, a gameboy or even earlier will get a kick out of this documentary, even it ultimately the picture it pains is one of a bleak digital only future despite the dramatic rise of video gaming and video gaming culture.  Watch this along side Indie Game: the Movie or The Last Blockbuster.

Best Bit: Retro!
