HISTORY OF VIDEO GAMES: FROM THE 1950's TO TODAY

Marco Accordi Rickards



 

From the oscilloscope of Tennis for Two to the overwhelming success of Atari in the 1970s, from the visionary Donkey Kong by Nintendo to the advent of PlayStation and Xbox, and all the way to the hyperrealism of virtual reality in Half-Life: Alyx, the video game is a unique medium that has been able to transform itself time and time again, using each new technology to serve the authors and artists of interactivity, women and men like Roberta Williams and Shigeru Miyamoto, Jane Jensen, and Hideo Kojima.


The history of video games is a ride through impossible feats and dramatic falls, brilliant insights and fierce battles. It is the story of a cultural sector that, unlike any other, has managed to interpret the imagination of a society increasingly suspended between the real and the virtual, where interactivity emerges as the key to the future for all of us.
