Back in 1972, Atari became the first big dog in arcade games, home video game consoles, and home computers. This is where it all started folks, Warcraft, Eve, Halo... none of these current high-speed games today wouldn't be around if it weren't for Atari. Their first game Pong, the most basic game on the planet, thrilled every person with an outlet to death! No kidding, we were like nuts over that game. The Atari 2600 was their first console and everyone peed their pants as they were finaly able to play cool games at home.
