    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 EntityπŸ˜‰

    My friend had a pong game in his room. I did not think the game was cool, I lost.

    I had an Intellivision.
    I'm not sure if that was the first game console or not but it's old.

    Same guy had an intellivision too. That one was on the tv in the living room. I really liked Sea Battle, Football and baseball. The sports games blew Atari away.

    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.

    You must be about 20 years older than me. In 6th grade I used to watch kids play Pac man and astroids.

    I remember those. Astroids was still black and white line drawings. But was still a difficult game to succeed in. PacMan! Wow freaking color!! Fun times.

    Yeah Astroids and Space invaders were closer to the same release I think. Pacman was a bit later if memory serves.
