In 1958, William Higginbotham, of the USA, released a simple game called Tennis for Two, not knowing what it would have led to over 60 years later! Subsequent games up to 1972 focused on space combat, rapidly growing in variety, complexity and popularity since then. Videogames are now among the most favourite of pastimes.
To put the money spent on video games in stark perspective: the population of Madagascar earn just over $30 million dollars per day for the country, while the world spends eight times as much on games!
