Atari founder Nolan Bushnell wants to take videogames down a different path. Popularly revered as the father of electronic games, he's still inventing and dreaming of new ways for people to use technology for fun. In fact, he is forging a different direction from today's shoot 'em up, beat 'em down, tear 'em apart electronic diversions.
"Video games today are a race to the bottom. They are pure, unadulterated trash and I'm sad for that," says Bushnell.
He sees a generation of video games that foster fun, social interaction, and education. Instead of creating games primarily played by one lone player, or occasionally two players, Bushnell wants to create an environment for families or groups of adults to have fun.
