The first video game was called Tennis for two invented by William Higibotham in 1958, on the 18th of October. Video games were invented to cure boredom, but some people get addicted by video game, which means they have problems to stop to play them!
Pong the video game was invented in 1972, it was invented by Allan Alcorn, but he handed the game to Nolan Bushnell so he can finish the game. All though it was the first game invented it has brought up some other ideas for other video games!!!
