how did the first video game start

Physicist William Higinbotham created what is thought to be the first video game. It was a very simple tennis game, similar to the classic 1970s video game Pong

a little bit about videogames

The project is mostly about video games. In October 1958, the first video game was made and that video game was pong it was a virtual game that you would hit the ball to the other side and that side would hit it back. The next big game which would be Pacman this is like a maze game but you would be a cheese man and you would go around and eat stuff.

Video games started from a computer in china and became an empire. This empire grew so much that almost everyone in America has a gaming console and if you don’t you have to of played video games once in your life.

Video games are also good for you. Video games help you with hand-eye coordination and this may help you more in life. They can also hurt you because you can binge and not eat or drink for days and this will cause dehydration and hunger. In my opinion video games are good because they help you more than not helping.

Video games can also help with stress and depression. It relieves your stress and depression by putting out on the video game. This will help with the depression because recent studies show the people have lower depression ratings.

In conclusion, you can play games or not your decision. I hope you learn some stuff from this and how video games were made. Hope you liked
