I am sure that almost 100% of you that played a game, wondered which was the first game? Well on the computer the first game was called Spacewar! and was concieved in 1961 and launched in February 1962 after more than 200 hours of works. It was a great effort by Steve Russell, the creator of Spacewar! but it opened the world of PC gaming and we need to thank him for that, not only PC gamers but all of us who love games, no matter the gaming platform.
The game was featuring two armed spaceships trying to shoot each other. Was of course, a simple game but it was a hit at that time.
Spacewar! can still be found in it's original version at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.
And here is another Spacewar! screenshot:
And as a comparison the games and the technology evolved just like let's say, the automobiles. Here is a screenshot from Crysis 2, which in my opinion has the best graphics from the games that are released at the moment:
