1958: William Higinbotham developed an analogue computer with vacuum tube at the New York Brookhaven Laboratory. At that time, computers were running slowly, and Willim Higinbotham saw dots bouncing on the screen. It came in your thoughts he could play a golf game on the computer at that moment

1960: William Higinbotham introduces the computer game he developed. This was a straightforward tennis simulation.

1962: Research assistant Steve Russell at the Hingham Institute in Cambridge-Massachusetts developed a spaceship game with a two-player game option and torpedo launching features.

1969: Steve Russell moved to Stanford University, and the game he developed attracted great interest from engineering students here. One of these brilliant students was Nolan Bushnell.

1971: Bushnell took Russell’s game and reorganized it with the thought of ​​”getting computer games into the entertainment industry”, thereby creating the very first coin game machine. His name was “Computer Space “.

1971-1981: Following the development of this game, Nutting Associates bought the rights of this game for $ 500 and produced another 1500 machines. But this game did not see the expected attention. Fortunately Bushnell was quick to comprehend why. People were not even used to controlling things on the tv screen screen. Busnell started their own game development company with $ 500 of earnings. His name was “Atari “.

Bushnell hired an engineer named Alan Alcorn and asked him to produce the simplest playable computer game. Alcorn came back with a game title called “Pong “.This game was played by controlling two rectangles that will move up and down, sending the moving point over the center line and sending it to one side.

However, Bushnell went back to any manufacturer. Bushnell also put his prototype in a large part of a club in California. At the conclusion of the initial day, he received a phone call saying the game was broken. When he went to correct it, he immediately realized what the situation was. The coin was stuck since the thrown part was full !!! So computer games started coming. Atari became the fastest growing company in 1981. But Bushnell had sold the $ 500 company to Warner Communications in 1976 for $ 28 million.

Many new companies began to be established in the early 80s. Epyx, Broderbund, Sierra Online and SSI were established only at that time.

1977: Atari wreaked havoc having its 2600 model. Games like “Burgertime” and “PC Man” were finally on the market to be played at home. The parents were also happy because they saved their children from using coins.

1981: The popularity of gaming machines increased. Apple’s, Atari’s and TRS-80’s were on the shelves, manufacturers started to create many games. During those times, manufacturers were producing tape cassette games that have been more useful than diskettes of 5’25 ”at the time. Until the 90’s, cassettes were preferred, but with the speed of 90s, floppy disks were preferred.

1982: “Zork I” for Apple II, “Choplifter” by Broderbund and “Olympic Decathlon” by Microsoft, which was newly established at that time. During those times, this trial of Microsoft in the overall game industry wasn’t very successful. That’s why Microsoft has not entered the gaming industry for a very long time. Also in this season, Access Software, Electronic Arts and Lucasfilm Games (Lucas Arts) were founded.

1983: In this year, Apple II had to provide way to the newest Atari 400 and Atari 800. Electronic Arts produced its first game and announced its game having an ambitious title in magazines.

1984: Game machines with cartridges suddenly disappeared. – The magazine Computer Gaming World explains this example the following: “In 1983, these machines climbed to the very best and fell from that summit in 1984.” Meanwhile, Commodore and floppy machines received more attention. The reason why the C-64 or Atari 800 got more attention was exactly like the PCs are now preferred to the consoles. On these new machines, you can do things besides games. The excuse of families is, “Our children can write programs and learn new things. It’s not just for the game. ” It was.

Meanwhile, IBM produced a small PC. This PC 5’25 ”floppy drive included 2 cartridge cavities and an easy DOS version. Unfortunately, during those times, this more technical machine was higher priced than others, and few companies could support it. It’s worth mentioning that this small PC is extremely disappointed and is founded on IBM’s door to have people’s money back.
