In the history of consumer products the history of video games is a relatively short one. But it has had a significant impact on how people play games especially X generation and millennial children. Nowadays many people who are interested in video games aren’t children at all and the fastest growing segment has actually been adults. Let’s have a look at the brief history of landmark video games and video consoles to trace the roots of this large industry.
It all started with a German engineer named Ralph Baer. He created a console called “brown box” in 1967 that had a chasing game where you could chase each other’s dots on the screen. This was later turned into the first mass market console known as “The Oddyssy” which sold over 300,000 units including a light gun game. PONG actually came out later and was originally played in the arcade game format. The original first person shooter was called “Maze Wars” and came out in 1972.
