Arcade gaming a short history

"In 1971 an arcade game known as Computer Space was born and is considered the first ever coin-operated arcade video game. A year later that Computer Space developer Nolan Bushnell would form Atari, Inc. and the name Pong(1972) would be heard around the world."

A remarkably well written piece on the history of Arcade gaming from the Older Gamers Paradise

Pong poster from atarimuseum.com a worthwhile visit in it's own right
