What started the Video Game craze…at least for me…
How many quarters we spent just trying to figure it all out.
The first TV hook-up game we had was “ping Pong”. About 1983ish. Adjusting the speed and paddle size was the big challenge. Hope the inventor of this game made a billion bucks.
Who could escape Pac-Man when it came out??! No one. I didn’t even play video games but there was one of these in every recording studio (not to mention every house) in the world.
The first time I ever heard the sound that Pong made I knew vid games were here to stay. Then adding a character and a goal beyond racking up the most number of points sealed the deal.
I still play the original pac man.
Donkey Kong was a killer too!
