The Ben Gonyo Gamers collection contains nearly 1 TB of digital content, comprising interviews, game capture, and other related footage. Digital files are arranged into Conventions, Game Companies, Game Footage, Player Interviews, and more. Also included in this collection are a DVD (62-minute cut) of Gamers and printed information about the documentary.

In the summer of 2010, the film began showing in heavy rotation on the Documentary Channel which described it as: "A humorous and lighthearted look behind the curtain of the often bizarre lifestyles of gamers, specifically, those involved with MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online). MMO video games supporting hundreds or thousands of players simultaneously, with participants often spending 30 hours or more per week. Including interviews with Red Sox great Curt Schilling, comedian Jay Mohr and fantasy author RA Salvatore."
