@ponderablesaid You could be young and just knwo about teh history of computer games.
You are old if Pong was a cool game for you 😉
You know you are old when you dust off your Commodore 64....
BTW, my buddy Howard Moscovitz was the dude, as a chip design engineer at AT&T asked his boss if he could design a digital audio chip and they gave the go ahead and the result was the very first digital sound chip and was used in the old Commodore series. He now has an electronic band called Xeroid Entity😉
I remember it as one of the first video games I saw in college. In any beer joint there was a pong game, simple black and white by the way, with quarters lined up on the edge of the game. I'm up next man! Great fun. Foosball as well, just great. Spent enough quarters to build a battleship. Haha.
