44 years ago, Atari ended up releasing the game that would jump start the video game industry. That game was called Pong. Nowadays you can play the game on countless sites that replicate the simple game, but back in 1972 if you wanted to play it you had to find one of the arcade machines that it was on. People loved the game so much that they would go to the bars and taverns that the machine was located at just to play it. A very impressive feat for a simple game in today’s standards.
