Today, September 12th is ‘National Video Game Day’. If you’re in your mid 30s or older you probably remember throwing in quarter after quarter trying to break the high score of someone you only knew by their three initials.
It was 40 years ago today that the video game 'Pong' was introduced. Pong was the first video game to go mainstream at home and in the arcade. I was too young to remember the beginnings of 'Pong' but I do remember playing a Pong like game called 'Breakout' on my Gemini system.
