Video games opened up a new world to people when they were first pioneered as amusement devices with the world’s first computers. As early as 1947, people had already started experimenting with video games on the earliest computers. The early games were a lot simpler than they are today and did not have such details as the games and consoles of today have. The first commercially marketed video game was a coin operated one and was launched in 1971. The first well known console was launched a few years later when Atari a very well known name in the world of games today started its ‘pong’ console. Games have become big business and also have become very popular; we look at the top ten video games of all time.
Racing games let us do what we can’t do on the road. The detailing on today’s race games are down to the last small detail. The cars are also faster and more realistic and the console gaming industry has also taken to racing games in a big way. Some of the earliest games in this category were very crude but still provided for lots of excitement with weapons and other add ins to the cars, today’s games however are mostly about speed and precision as the detailing gets better and better. We will look at some of the best racing games of the past and the present.
