There's a docuseries about video gaming you need to watch High Score. Covering the history of video gaming can be daunting as there is so much history, but High Score actually breaks each episode up by genre, from fighting games to shooters to adventure gaming and more. It feels a lot like the series Toys That Made Us with fun animations keeping the story moving. It's right up there with King of Kong as far as I'm concerned. You can learn more about the show in GameSpot's review of High Score, which Steven Petite gave a 9/10.
