Although it has become easier for us to play video games, have you stopped and thought about the simple beginnings of video games?

Oddyssey which was created in 1972 was the first officially acknowledged video game. But before this official video game, Thomas Goldsmith in 1947, first created “Cathode ray tube Amusement Device”- mainly it is made of missiles fired at targets. Earlier video games are as follows: NIMROD computer in 1951, OXO tic-tac-toe in 1952, and “Spacewar!” in 1961.
