Space War!

Stumbled across this 1972 Rolling Stone article link and was amazed at some of the author's speculations. It also tells the tale of the granddaddy of all video games: Spacewar!
I thought it was ironic that it took a non-computer type to project how things would develop.

Re: Space War!

That last section is fairly interesting, actually. It's a nice read.

Spacewar! always looked like a lot of fun. Someday when I'm rich and bored I'd love to get an old PDP-1 and play it as it was meant to be played!
