According to Brookhaven National Laboratory, the first video game ever was “Tennis for Two .” (www.bnl.gov) It was first created in 1985 in a lab and was designed to provide an interactive way to learn about science. It was created on a lark to give the people posters. There were two controllers. Two people played at the same time. It was a huge hit and people were lining up to get a chance to play the game. It is unquestionably a forerunner of the modern video games. The man who created it was William Higinbotyham. It was a very simply designed tennis game.
