    The first recognized video game is often considered to be “Pong.” It was created by Atari, Inc. and released in November 1972 as an arcade game. Pong was a simple tennis sports game that simulated table tennis. Players controlled virtual paddles on the screen, and the goal was to use the paddles to hit a ball back and forth.
