|The original SERVICES poster, 2000|
SERVICES: The CounterStrike Documentary.
(I've uploaded it to The Sand Table, my Youtube gaming channel.)
SERVICES was seen in three places only:
- At its informal premiere at the Toronto Stock Exchange in 2001.
- At Digifest 2003, "Electronic Cities", in Toronto...
- And at Valve, creator of CounterStrike. Valve first saw SERVICES about 2002.
In fact, it was almost broadcast on television, back before Youtube paved the way for game documentaries, but this was blocked because of "flickering screens".
How much has this documentary influenced this history of videogames?
