Believe it or not, games didn’t start out in a tech company or in a guy’s garage like they do nowadays. In fact, they began in laboratories with scientists.
Although commercial video games didn’t come out until 1970s, the first ones started in 1952 when British professor A.S. Douglas made a tic-tac-toe-inspired game for his doctoral dissertation. By 1967, Ralph Baer (who would later be called the Father of Video Games) and his team at Sanders Associates, Inc. developed ‘The Brown Box’, which was the first multiplayer video game system you could play on the television.
Today, videos games are at the forefront of technology. Aside from computers, you can now play using consoles, mobile phones, and virtual reality gadgets, too. Even if you’re not a gamer yourself, you’ve probably heard of popular titles such as Pac-Man, Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, and Street Fighter.
Guess what: you can relive that and your favorite games when you use these amazing gaming fonts.
