I was not around in 1972. But if you were around back then, were you excited to see the first ever video game? Pong was released on November 29, 1972 by Atari. Sure this game was simple to play. All you had to do was move your controller up or down so you can hit the ball. This game inspired many of the video games you see today. Without Pong; video games might not exist! So happy birthday Pong! I am glad people still plays your game on the internet even in 2012!
