Professional gaming has become more popular than ever, and Valve is looking to highlight some of the people who are pushing the new medium of sports forward. Surprisingly enough, the game and software developer has produced a feature-length documentary titled Free to Play that followers professional gamers preparing to compete in a tournament of Dota 2 — one of the biggest names in competitive gaming. Aside from the preparation that goes into the competition, the documentary covers the remaining stigma around professional gaming and how some competitors dealt with that on their way to compete in a million-dollar tournament. Of course, everything from the movie to the featured game to the featured tournament has Valve behind it, so the film is far from a pure piece of passion or entertainment — its in many ways an elaborate ad.
