Video Games
The origin of video games lies in early cathode ray tube-based missile defense systems in
the late 1940s. These programs were later adapted into other simple games during the
1950s. By the late 1950s and through the 1960s, more computer games were developed
(mostly on mainframe computers), gradually increasing in sophistication and complexity.
Following this period, video games diverged into different platforms: arcade, mainframe,
console, personal computer and later handheld games.
The first commercially viable video game was Computer Space in 1971, which laid the
foundation for a new entertainment industry in the late 1970s within the United States,
Japan, and Europe. The first major crash in 1977 occurred when companies were forced
to sell their older obsolete systems flooding the market. Six years later a second, greater
crash occurred. This crashbrought on largely by a flood of poor quality video games
coming to the marketresulted in a total collapse of the console gaming industry in the
United States, ultimately shifting dominance of the market from North America to Japan.
While the crash killed the console gaming market, the computer gaming market was
largely unaffected. Subsequent generations of console video games would continue to be
dominated by Japanese corporations. Though several attempts would be made by North
American and European companies, fourth generation of consoles, their ventures would
ultimately fail. Not until the sixth generation of video game consoles would a non-Japanese
company release a commercially successful console system. The handheld gaming
market has followed a similar path with several unsuccessful attempts made by American
companies all of which failed outside some limited successes in the handheld electronic
games early on. Currently only Japanese companies have any major successful handheld
gaming consoles, although in recent years handheld games have come to devices like cell
phones and PDAs as technology continues to converge.
