Video games are very popular. But who MADE video games?
Well, there are many people who contributed to making video games, but the most well known people were called Ralph Baer and Nolan Bushnell. Baer came up with the idea for an entertainment device that could be hooked up to a TV. With Baer’s help, Magnavox created the Magnavox Odyssey. In n1972, Nolan Bushnell saw the Odyssey before the release date, and hired Allan Alcorn to create a version of the table tennis game to familiarize himself with video game design. Alcorn’s version was so FUN that Atari (the company that Bushnell founded) decided to release it as Pong!
