I've read several accounts of what was the first video game in Retro Gamer magazine.
One account was a guy who created pong on an oscilloscope purely through electronics.
Spacewar being another example which i think was one of the earliest programmed games.
These were in the early 1960's, and i was born in 68, so you could say i was born in the same decade as computer games.
Thats quite incredible to think about really.
I've grown up with computer games and the computer games industry.
I wonder what the next 40 years will bring. Assuming we're all still around by then.
