When I recently saw a timeline on the history of video games, I discovered that the video game industry and I have shared some milestones.
One major milestone for me of course would have been my birth. Even though I technically don’t remember it, I’ve been told about it. It would appear that the “birth” of the video game occurred around the same time I was born. So technically that makes us both over five decades old!
Another milestone I share with the video game industry – about the time I graduated from high school and was getting ready to spring forth on the world, a little toy manufacturing company in Japan known as Nintendo was working on an electronic version of a game and Atari was developing a home video game. Who remembers when everyone wanted an Atari? And now over 30 years later – look how far we’ve both come.
In the 80’s and 90’s I was giving birth to and raising my children. Well, the video game industry was doing the same, but at a much more prolific rate. Nintendo, Sega, and Sony were all creating their babies.
And those babies did what my babies did into the 2000’s. My babies grew and blossomed and some of them even made their own babies. Well video games grew and blossomed into the incredible video game technology that we see today.
There is likely one thing that I won’t share with the video game industry. I’m pretty sure my time here will end, but I don’t see an end to the growth and change in the video game industry.
