A German born American wow!!! was the inventor of video games. I thought it was the Japanese? I really appreciate what this guy did thanks and God bless him. Hope to see him one day when I finally get to work in the game industry.

He invented consoles.

No, in fact Japan didn't REALLY become a real force in gaming until the NES in '83 or '84.

I appreciate and respect what this bloke has done, however its whats known as moving with the times. People want violent games, basic supply and demand.

You should expect a note from the Dork Brotherhood for that comment.

Yawn. It has nothing to do with him. It's society. Big deal. You can't do anything about it so why cry over it? Are you going to take your idea back and say nobody can play videogames?

Hicken2229d ago

So because society took it and turned it into something he doesn't like and never intended, he can't say anything about it? Maybe he can't, as one individual, do anything about it, but that's true for most things in this world.

It's only when you voice your opinion and band with like-minded individuals that you can truly get things changed.

I just don't care. I think he's been out of the industry for decades. It just doesn't matter to me.

Hicken2229d ago

It's fine if it doesn't matter to YOU. But YOU didn't start this trend. HE did. So it makes sense that it would bother HIM. I'm certain Fermi and the others were not exactly pleased with the results of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

And what's up with kids these days and their long hair and hippity hop and crack cocaine?
