The top titles remain pop-culture icons: Super Mario Bros., Sonic, Halo, Call of Duty. This fall, Microsoft and Sony will release their latest efforts: the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. How do you remember the evolution of home gaming? Ping pong / tennis on your tv ? yes !!!
Video games have come a long way in a relatively short period of time. To this day, the term “video game” does not have a concrete definition, therefore ascertaining what the first video was is impossible. A popular misconception is that Pong, released in 1972, was the first video game. This is definitely incorrect, as even its creators (Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney) developed a game called Computer Space in 1971 (which isn’t the first video game, either). While Pong may not have been the first video game, first commercially successful one and ushered the video game industry into existence.
