Evolution on Entertainment
Something new gets introduced, video games. They allow interactive designs to engage the user into its world. Such as utilizing a controller, or even putting on a helmet to enter a virtual world. From eye appealing graphics to enhanced hardware in the consoles, the video game world is ever changing. It all started in the summer of 1966 as Ralph Baer came up with an idea to use a TV set to play video games. From there things started to snowball into what we have today. The Magnavox Odyssey was the first ever video game console to be released for sale. Then other businesses saw the potential video games had, so Atari, Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony, and many others created newer and better consoles. Today we have the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Wii U, and the master race of video gaming, the PC.
