It is a widely spread fallacy that the first computer game was called Pong. The first computer game ever was called Space War. It wasn’t an extremely popular one as the ones who could play it were the programmers who organized the work of the computers in the 60s. The game plot was primitive. Two little spaceships floated on the screen and were meant to shoot each other.
The year 1971 was characterized by the introduction of the first popular computer game called Space. The game was aimed to be accessible for the wide audience but the idea wasn’t successful. The author of the game Nolan Bashnell didn’t take into account the fact that a little amount of people could afford the large device.
