Spacewar!(Not-so-personal computer, 1962)

“It could be played only on million-dollar computers. I would spend all night playing it in the lab. It was like nothing anybody had ever seen.”

Pong

(Arcade, 1972)

“Pong brought everyone together: men, women, jocks…In fact, there were some women gamers hustling men at the bar, making $100 a week playing Pong.”

Tempest

(Arcade, 1981)

“This game had a lot of industry firsts: the first video game with a selectable level of difficulty and the first video game to use Atari’s Color-Quadrascan vector display technology.”
