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.
