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

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

Bushnell hired an engineer named Alan Alcorn and asked him to develop the simplest playable computer game. Alcorn came ultimately back with a game title called “Pong “.This game was played by controlling two rectangles that may progress and down, sending the moving point over the center line and sending it to at least 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 very first day, he received a call saying the game was broken. When he went to fix it, he immediately realized what the problem was. The coin was stuck since the thrown part was full !!! So computer games started coming. Atari became the fastest growing company in 1981.

1981: The popularity of gaming machines increased. Apple’s, Atari’s and TRS-80’s were on the shelves, manufacturers started to make many games. At that time, manufacturers were producing tape cassette games that have been more useful than diskettes of 5’25 ”at the time. Before 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. At that time, this trial of Microsoft in the overall game industry was not very successful. That’s why Microsoft has not entered the gaming industry for a extended time.

1983: In in 2010, Apple II had to give method to the newest Atari 400 and Atari 800. Electronic Arts produced its first game and announced its game having an ambitious title in magazines.

The reason why the C-64 or Atari 800 got more attention was exactly like the PCs are still preferred to the consoles. On these new machines, you can do things other than games. The excuse of families is, “Our youngsters can write programs and learn new things. It’s not merely 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, at that time, this more complicated machine was more expensive than others, and few companies could support it. It is worth mentioning that small PC is extremely disappointed and is founded on IBM’s door to have people’s money back.
