I remember in the late 70's bringing home a Pong Game. My Grandmother sat in her chair and watched me hook it up to the back of the old console tv in the living room. She kept asking me what I was doing. That tv was the center of our family's entertainment universe and she wanted no harm to come to it.
Wires and controls were everywhere when I finally turned it on. Then, on channel 3, there it was: a straight white line down the middle and two short ones on the sides for paddles. It was amazing! I started up the game and began to play.
After watching me for 10 minutes she finally asked, "Are you making that thing on the screen move?" I don't think she ever believed it was happening.
So began my electronic game addiction...
