Intro

Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to “The Video Game Café.” Where we serve a little Pac man with Mappy on the side or some Mario and some Bouser on the side with some princess peach to drink. Or would you like to just like to learn about some video games? You do? Perfect! Now, I will tell you about what video games are and then the history of video games. Let’s begin…

What video games are.

How much dose a Wii game cost?  Well, according to Wiki answers, a new video game costs from $35 to $50 but a new one cost about $20! Now, I think that this a good deal but yet a rip off. To me it’s like buying a hot dog for $15, a good deal, but a rip off!

Will TV go away?  According to this one website, children should not have TV, including video games, because children are always watching it and not getting active. Children can go with out TV, they did it in the 50's! So kids, enjoy TV while it lasts!

History

How will video games look in the future?  According to game hunters, players will not only be able to spring their on-screen and avatar into action by moving their hands, arms and legs, but will be able to communicate emotions to in-game characters and other players. Can you imagine! Sharing emotions with a video game, you could share love, anger, and jealousy! That’d be so much fun!

 

What was the first video game and was they’re anything leading up to this game?  According to Mary Bellies, the first video game was "Tennis for Two" by William Higginbotham in 1958. And A.S. Douglas has the first video game but it is not the first "Video" game. The first video game was "Tennis for two.”  And I think that “Tennis for Two” is a really fun game, yet I’ve never played it before!

      

       More Video Game Stuff. Why did He/ she create video games? According to Widipedia, it’s because it’s a form of entertainment, like TV or cinema etc.  Who invented video games? According to Wikipedia there is not one particular inventor although, the earliest known is Thomas T. Goldsmith Jr. and Estle Ray Mann in 1947. The game was called “World War II.” But “Tennis for Two” was the very first. This was just a board game type thing

Conclusion

Now, I hope that you liked the facts that you herd tonight! So, did you know that the first video game was “Tennis for Two” before this little fact time?  So, are you sure you still want that Mappy to go?
