The Very First Video Game Ever Released and Its Not Pong

Famous quotes containing the words pong, released, video and/or game:

    And you could have a new automobile
    Ping pong set and garage, but the thief
    Stole everything like a miracle.
    In his book there was a picture of treason only
    And in the garden, cries and colors.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    the walk liberating, I was released from forms,
    from the perpendiculars,
    straight lines, blocks, boxes, binds
    of thought
    into the hues, shadings, rises, flowing bends and blends
    of sight:
    Archie Randolph Ammons (b. 1926)

    I recently learned something quite interesting about video games. Many young people have developed incredible hand, eye, and brain coordination in playing these games. The air force believes these kids will be our outstanding pilots should they fly our jets.
    Ronald Reagan (b. 1911)

    The most disgusting cad in the world is the man who, on grounds of decorum and morality, avoids the game of love. He is one who puts his own ease and security above the most laudable of philanthropies.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
