Video Game Facts: The First Video Game Ever Made Was Designed To Cure Boredom

"With the launch of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last year November. We have seen the evolution of video games heading in a new direction as more developers focus on social features to bring players together - But as we head into the future of video games and next generation consoles, we look back to where it all began with the very first video game ever made."

The story is too old to be commented.

Wow very interesting. Technology has come a long way since then. Great to read these things and know how it all started.

Well i wouldn't be bored if I had these two sharing my console.

we started gaming for that same reason . now gamers fight on consoles , graphics and hate on games -_-

Its crazy how much things have evolved in such a short space of time don't you think?

Sadly it seems thats all people do on video games nowadays part from the few exceptional developers who still make games that inspire players beyond violence.

People compete in gaming. its part of the competition. Games like GTA V, COD, destiny are the life blood of gaming. Its what makes it worth playing.

If we were all online singing cumbaya I am sure many players won't bother getting online to play at all.

It would be great if those players left with their toxic bs and went back to skateboarding and breaking mailboxes like they USED to do in the 90s.

That's been going on since the second video game was made. People argue about everything.

Some of the best things in the world are made out of a need. So glad Higinbotham thought of video games. imagine a world without video games?

I couldn't imagine a world without video games. Its such a big part of who we are and our society.

I've been gaming nonstop since Intellivision, but that's a bit of a stretch.

I saw this at an expo by smithonian years ago. Its really smart the way william higinbotham developed the idea. its great inspiration for any future devs out there.
