This series takes an insightful look at the various facets of the video gaming culture, which has evolved from a group of programmers and hobbyists to a thriving community. It highlights how technology has contributed to the social norms of the gaming culture over the years, and how the community embraces technology as part of their commonality. Folks also share their honest thoughts about being part of this community, and the goals they hope to reach (aka "waypoints") by actively participating in it in some way.

Some of the Waypoint Presents episodes feature older, short documentaries originally produced for Vice, but others contain original content. Regardless, teen fans of the Waypoint franchise, as well as gaming enthusiasts, will be drawn to the details the show offers about the different games, creators, and players. But older non-gamers may potentially find the conversations about the gaming culture and community very interesting.
