Gamer Documentary “The Raid” from Gamebreaker.TV

Here’s a documentary on raiding. While it specifically covers World of Warcraft, it wouldn’t surprise me that what actually makes up a raid group is going to be the same across raid based games.

What I like about this documentary is that it goes into psychological and anthropological studies on what it is to be an MMO gamer and well a raider.

Sadly it almost makes me wish I’d been able to get up into raiding. That kind of achievement and camaraderie really is something special. It really is like participating in a sport.

Well here’s the vid, you have to get through the first part of the guys talking but trust me it’s worth it to get to the documentary it’s self.

    Looks interesting. I’ll have to check it out when I get home from work tonight. Although it may make me want to get back into WoW again, which I don’t really want at the moment.
