The History of Gaming Computers

The first Gaming Computer was made in 1952, by A.S Douglas. He wrote his Ph.D thesis at the University of Cambridge on Human- Computer interaction. As a part of his project, Douglas created the first graphics-based computer game: a version of Tic-Tac-Toe. The game was programmed on an EDSAC vacume tube computer, which relied on a cathode ray tube display.

In 1958, William Higinbotham crated the first true video game. His game, titled Tennis for Two was devised and played on a Brookhaven National Laboratory oscilloscope. Using an MIT PDP-1 mainframe computer, Steve Russell designed SpaceWar! the first game specifically made for computer play in 1962
