"Playing with Power" and "Epic Win" doesn't really tell me it's something about gaming history.... which is what your project was about, no?

Should be a title that explains at the same time what it's about.... or you will get less people viewing it.

Imo....

Should explain it... IMO...

How about "Game On!"

I don't think there are any video game documentaries with that name? Short and simple

Yeah but i don't think it was to do with video games.... and mattbarton.exe is from the states unless they have a game on tv show there too

"Video Gaming: Insert Coin" or "VIdeo Gaming: Press Start".... i could go on.... and probably fail

I highly doubt it was on in the States but I still think it's enough to put you off naming it the same thing.

The name has to be something universal enough that non-heavy-computer users (someone who used to visit the arcades but doesn't know about emulation for example) will recognise it which is why I think "Epic Win" and "Woot" are terrible names.

Both "Insert Coin" and "Press Start" are good titles I think.

Insert Coin and Press Start just sounds like magazines to me, dealing with games of course, but those titles doesn't tell you what this magazines is about. Matt want to do something on the history of games, not just retro stuff, not just todays stuff. So he really HAVE to use a title that explains the content, cuz that makes a better title.

Like the ones I suggested, or The Videogame Revolution, The Age of Videogames.

I agree, "Insert Coin" and "Press Start" are good titles, especially if you have "The Age of Videogames" underneath or something.

Press Start
The Age of Videogames
