  • Video Game Trivia

    What was the first videogame made on what system and who made it? It was not Pong by the way and the system wasn't Atari, that was just a hint. Does any one know the answer?

    Are you asking about videogames for the arcade or videogames for the home?

      It's a home console system, so sorry I didn't make that clear for you all.

        I was thinking Commodore or Odyssey. I know that they had systems out when Atari was on the market. As far as games, I don't know anyone that had one of those systems so I would not be able to guess what their game was. I hope I'm close.

            The first video game was Computer Space manufactured by Nutting Associates & designed by Nolan Bushnell; but the first interactive game ever made was on a PDP computer in 1960, created by Steven "Slug" Russell of MIT's tech model railroad club.

                Oops, Auntie, I steered you wrong.

                I just saw that he wants the 1st "home console" video game...

                My hubby says it's the Odyssey by Magnavox developed by Ralph Baer in 1972.

                    You got the system correct and the name of the guy correct but can you guess the game now? Remember it's the first game of that system. (Drum Rolls) and the answer is?

                          That is the right answer, you rock. Here's another question: The company Sega was founded by who? An American? Or was it by a Japanese dude? What did the word Sega stand for?

                              I guess game over for you.... but don't worry there's other games I will come out with later that will be easier. I don't know what it will be, but you'll see. Until that time it's Video game trivia.
