<p>Computer Space is a 1971 arcade created by Atari's founders. This machine was the forerunner of commercial electronic games and, to that end, was the first coin-operated machine. In it, you can play Spacewar. Unfortunately, I could not experience Computer Space because it is part of a special exhibit that takes place on specific times and days. So if you are thinking of stopping by the museum, first check out the special screening days on the Computerspielemuseum website.</p>

I confess that I am not a super fan of games, always liked, but it was never a fever like buying k7 tapes in my teens or gadgets via the internet in contemporary times. But it took just one afternoon at Computerspielemuseum to make me really want to have a console (specifically, a Wii U). The interesting thing about being in a place like this is that you can understand how much we have evolved in technological terms, because a giant machine like Nimrod – the first computer exclusively designed to run games – has been compressed and improved, so we can now have a game today. as the Real Racing 3 or Dead trigger running, well, on a mobile device.

The first game I came into contact with was a boxing game at an Atari, and he kept the winner in surprises … it was new because a friend's father had brought it from the USA back in the 1990s. your first video game or the first game you ever played? Let us know in the comments below.
