VIDEO GAMES





The year is 1978. On planet Earth, all is calm. Children are sleep and parents are eating dinner. Buit in Japan, something strange is happening. High in the sky, a UFO appears. Soon a second one comes, then a third and fourth...It's an alien invasion!
Thankfully the aliens aren't real but part or a new video game called SPACE INVADERS. Invented by Tomohiro Nishikado, it became the most successful videogame ofits generation: It made $2 billion in five years. It followed games Like Pong (1972) which revolutionized computer games: Now you could play them at home.


In 1980, Pacman, the yellow face who eats monsters, became the best selling game. Seven million copies were sold. He also became the first recognizable video game character.




In the early 1980, Atari consoles made video games at home more fun and easy to play. Then, consoles from Sega and the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) improved the gaming experience Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. made stars of two plumbers from Brooklyn.
