My son is on home on break for school. He's basically catching up on sleep and his video game playing when he's not looking for what's to eat around the house. It's incredible how realistic some of these games look. Compared to today's amazing gaming technology, the first video games were prehistoric in comparison. Even so, The Internet Archive is now putting a bunch of the very first video games online. I remember  Atari and Magnavision but not some of the other names mentioned in this article. Maybe you will, or maybe you'll just watch a gamer stare in wide eyed amazement at what were the origins of today's video games.
