Arcade establishments and arcade amusements, in general, are essentially the enduring footprints left by a medium that, 4 decades ago, was regarded as a simple hobby or pastime. It all started with the first arcade games back in the early 70’s. The home console and PC gaming we enjoy today owe their existence to the fact that, almost 50 years ago, a pair of American engineers by the names of Ted Dabney and Nolan Bushnell created and released Computer Space through Nutting Associates. While the game not a commercial success, it did lead the pair to create Atari and the rest as they say, is history. We’ve already talked about Computer Space in another article if you are looking for more detailed behind that. However, what you need to know about this game isn’t really related to the game itself, but rather to its legacy.
