In October 1958, Physicist William Higinbotham created what is thought to be the first video game. It was a very simple tennis game, similar to the classic 1970s video game Pong, and it was quite a hit at a Brookhaven National Laboratory open house.
my first game i tried to play was pong i was very young at the time but years later am trying to learn how to play games my partner is helping me learn all i can play is Diablo 3 at the moment am not use to the controls yet ( key board and mouse ) i have some problems with my coordination am only a noob 😬🥴
Pokemon red & yellow on the gameboy lol I was in elementary school when my cousin gave me his old gameboy & that's when i bought pokémon games for it (loved the cartoon as a kid.) So I became hooked immediately to games since lol
My grandfather, for a time, ran some kind of business that provided arcade games and billiard tables to local bars and restaurants and the like. He brought a lot of his work home with him, so to speak, for us grandkids. And a pool table for the adults during family gatherings. The first game I can recall playing is the tabletop version of Space Invaders II, in his basement.
Later in life, as he got older and could not properly care for all of the various machines he'd gathered over the years, he gifted me the Space Invaders II machine. I was able to keep it until my mid 30s, when circumstances forced me to part with it for far less than it was worth.
