A video game is a game played by electronically manipulating

images produced by a computer program on a television screen


or other display screen.

We like it because it helps us escape reality.


Its also very fun to play when youre bored.

Dakota got interested in it when his mom bought him a Nintendo


64 when he was 64.
The way Devan got into video games is via YouTube.

It involves a mouse, keyboard or a console, controller and a


television
If you want to play online you will need internet or on a Xbox
you Xbox Live

I think other people should try out gaming because you can
make time fly very fast and it can completely rip you out of
reality.

Enhances decision making
While in online play, you meet more people than you would in
real life

People say it makes you violent


Keeps you from going outside
Makes you lazy
Time consuming

By the 1960s, millions of Americans had invested in televisions for their


homes, but it soon became clear to that this technology could be used for
more that passively watching television shows. In 1966, while working for
Sanders Associates Inc., engineer Ralph Baer began to investigate how to
play games on a television. Between 1967 and 1969, he and colleagues Bill
Harrison and Bill Rusch created several video game test units. This result was
the Brown Box, a prototype for the first multiplayer, multiprogram video
game system. Sanders licensed the system to Magnavox.

In 1972, Magnavox released the design as the Magnavox


Odyssey, paving the way for all video game systems that
followed.
Ralph Baer donated his video game test units, production
models, notes, and schematics to the Smithsonian National
Museum of American History in 2006. His papers are kept in
the Museum's Archives Center.

Pong (marketed as PONG) is one of the earliest arcade video games; it is a


tennis sports game featuring simple two-dimensional graphics. While other arcade
video games such as Computer Space came before it, Pong was one of the first video
games to reach mainstream popularity. The aim is to defeat an opponent in a
simulated table-tennis game by earning a higher score. The game was originally
manufactured by Atari Incorporated (Atari), who released it in 1972. Allan
Alcorn created Pong as a training exercise assigned to him by Atari cofounder Nolan Bushnell. Bushnell based the idea on an electronic ping-pong game
included in the Magnavox Odyssey, which later resulted in a lawsuit against Atari.
Surprised by the quality of Alcorn's work, Bushnell and Dabney decided to
manufacture the game.

Pong quickly became a success and is the first commercially successful arcade video
game machine, which helped to establish the video game industry along with the first
home console, the Magnavox Odyssey. Soon after its release, several companies
began producing games that copied Pong's gameplay, and eventually released new
types of games. As a result, Atari encouraged its staff to produce more innovative
games. The company released several sequels that built upon the original's gameplay
by adding new features. During the 1975 Christmas season, Atari released a home
version of Pong exclusively through Sears retail stores. It was also a commercial
success and led to numerous copies. The game has been remade on numerous home
and portable platforms following its release. Pong has been referenced and
parodied in multiple television shows and video games, and has been a part of
several video game and cultural exhibitions.
