Video games have been part of our entertainment staple diet since the mid 70s. We have enjoyed them in all types of capacity from local amusement shops to in your home. Now, with the magic of the internet, you can play against people all over the world!
The history of gaming starts in the 70’s with the Atari and Pong as the first mass-market examples- this evolved into platformers, text adventure games and finally the crash of 83. But like a phoenix, gaming returned with new companies rapidly developing and being driven to improve by the competition. From a pad with a single button and a joy stick to immersive virtual realities in less than fifty years!
Gaming is more popular now than ever before, there are over 2,000 active gaming companies who are operating in the UK, so you are certainly spoilt for choice. Similarly, to one our favourite gaming slot sites Power Spins, where there over 500 hundred games to choose from!
From the simplicity of Pong to Call of Duty and Assassin’s Creed, we all have our favourites. But can you recognise these retro games from a single screenshot?
