I'm trying to decide which came first - the internet or the computer game.
Like most things, it gets really fuzzy at the edges when you try to decide which was the first anything.
I believe Bertie the Brain was made in 1950, but you wouldn't recognise it as a computer game today. OXO in 1952 could probably just about pass as a computer game as you know it.
It wasn't until 1972, Hunt The Wumpus and Pong were made.
The internet is easier. DARPA in 1962. Not the internet as you know it, but the internet. Packet networking already existed, but nothing you could really see the internet growing out of before then.
So, probably the computer game, but it depends on your point of view as to what counts as the first computer game.
Also, don't quote me on the years. I know OXO and Pong were 20 years apart, but it might not be 52 and 72.

I'm not from that era,But thanks to thee internet i've dug up a lot of great retro games like Castlevania 1+3,Super mario 1+2+3 (All are great games) Are there still arcade machines in America??? Cause there's not a single one left in Denmark,Not even in the urban part of copenhagen where i live.
I've completed all zelda games except the one on wiiu,So feel free to ask Valerie
You've completed all the Zelda games? WOW!
For DS I have 'Zelda Phantom Hourglass' and 'Zelda Spirit Tracks'. For GameBoy I had 'The Legend of Zelda'.
What is that 'wiuii' ? I saw some games for that but didn't even know what it was.
Good question about the 'Arcade' and I don't know. I would guess, maybe in some more remote
gas stations/mini marts. There was the time when shopping malls had one or more large Arcade
rooms with just about every machine you could think of. I suppose they made a ton of money.
Many years ago I remember my sister that lives in a small town, lived by a mini mart and her kids
would go there almost every day to play 'PacMan' and something else. It was just a small little
store but they had two game machines.
I watch 'Price is Right' rather faithfully every morning. It's a popular game show that has been
airing since the 70's. I can remember when they would give away pinball machines as a prize.
I have not thought about it but you are right, I suppose there isn't any or perhaps a few arcade
machines around. I would guess that perhaps amusement fun type houses might have some.
People did start having game rooms that were simply like the ones we play today on computers.
I know because a friend of mine that works online, opened a really nice one in North Carolina.
I saw pictures of it. He had a very nice room, lots of tables, laptops, computers, play stations,
all that. It didn't fly. Most people simply stay at home and play games on their own machines.
It would have been okay if you hadn't known from halfway through the last season, communities were going to team up together to defeat Negan, and instead of killing him, lock him in a cell.
They've hammered it down your throat so forcefully, we could have skipped straight to season eight.
I will be quite surprised if the whole "We've done exactly the same thing he has, but we're loads better" thing turns out to be just bad writing rather than a plot device, but it won't be the good kind of surprise. Maybe they do kill him, but either way, they screwed up.

Hopefully he may bring along coffee samples from his country's coffee shops, too.
