The documentary based on the book Console Wars which Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg were involved with was released last week on CBS All Access. 
 

It’s quite well done, and features with most of the major players in the US including Tom Kalinske, Howard Lincoln and even Howard Phillips. 
 

It is really the story of how Sega USA, and Tom Kalinske took on the behemoth that was Nintendo, and (for a time) won.

This isn’t a documentary per se, but it’s a good fit for this thread. Gail Tilden, former Advertising Manager for Nintendo in the 80s, talks about her early days with the company, launching the NES in North America, and eventually bringing Nintendo Power to life. Definitely worth checking out if you have the time.

New Gaming Historian video on Mega Man for DOS. I never knew this existed, but the minute the video of it playing started, there was just something about it that made me think “Yup, that’s exactly what platformers of that era looked like on PC”. There was just a certain look to them. 
 

Im really glad he’s starting to get interviews with some of the subjects of his stories also.
