The first computer game released to the public was Pong, though there are supposedly 1 or 2 older games college geeks wrote in their spare time.

And we as gamers thank those geeks every day for what they brought to our lives. :lol:

Well, Pong was the first but there was also a lot of other important firsts (all created by Nintendo because they own Sony and Microsoft). The first game that required you to "complete the game" rather than to repeatedly try to beat your last high score was Mario and the first game that had a "Save" option rather than using a password was Zelda.

I remember there was a game made in 1960, it was way more basic that pong but it wasn't to the public.

When pong came out? im not 100% sure, i looked on a few sites but cant find it. sorry :(

Contrary to popular belief, I think Space Invaders was made before Pong. But apparently it was too complicated for the public to relate to, if you can believe that, so Pong was created.

Space Invaders owns every game ever made.
