Did you know that video games were invented way back in 1958? We can thank Willy Higinbotham, a physicist no less, who created a video game played on an oscilloscope! It was like a pingpong game, so you can imagine how that went.
Needless to say, video games have evolved into so much more, especially with the rise of mobile gaming, making a gamer out of everyone – from your two-year-old kid to your 92-year-old grandparent.
Still, there is a lot to be said about the PC gaming rigs of the past, call them retro battlestations if you wish. The guys of WhoIsHostingThis.com have put together a graphic showcasing these retro battlestations, which, if you are old enough to remember will certainly give you chills down your spine. Or make you stare into the distance, remembering the good old days.
Wasn’t that one heck of a walk down memory lane? I am willing to bet that some of you might even have an old console or two in your attic.
