So why do you think video games were created? Well according to “Ralph Baer invented video games in 1951. He was an engineer making television sets, Baer had the passing thought that adding a game play element to TV might be fun. But his bosses disagreed, instead of dismissing the idea Baer buried it in his brain and let it churn. Fifteen years later his idea came to life. One day he was scribbling down notes about TV games. Five days after that came a schematic. A month and a half later, on October 20, 1966 he was playing his first video game”. And thus the video game was born that one idea came to life because a man just wanted to have fun with his TV not just watching it but playing in it. One man’s thought to be silly idea turned into to phenomena. All around the world games evolved.
Video games are really beneficial and its sometimes also good for your health according to a local mom tells her boys to play games a half hour a day before dinner. The boys are among the 5% to 7% of children who have attention deficit disorder and video games, as prescribed by their psychologist, have helped them learn to focus, their mom says.
