Who created video games?

So this quarantine has done a lot of crazy things to all of us, but the raging on Fortnite these ten-year-old’s do every day is a little much. Honestly, it’s one of my least favorite parts of quarantine. So to who do we owe these “1 V 1 ME!” rage fits? Well, an engineer named Ralph H. Baer is to blame.

He created the system called Magnavox Odyssey which only had a couple of simple games like checkers, but it was revolutionary! It paved the way for the modern game consoles we’re addicted to these days. Now, we can explore oceans with VR, make online friends who live across the world, or rage quit Mario Kart because some bastard hit you with a green shell right before you crossed the finish line.
