Playing Pong Was Like Touching The Monolith
When I was a wee lad, someone brought a Pong unit to church. I instantly knew that this was to be a great love, one to be cherished and nurtured, nestled in the folds of my heart. Despite the fact that our church had an actual ping pong table (which admittedly is a good deal more entertaining than turning a knob), I was mesmerized by this primitive forefather of all videogames. Like the nascent realization of primeval man that smashing things with a bone club is far more effective than with a bare fist, I dimly foresaw a future in which videogames would enable us to become athletes, soldiers, and magic-wielding sword-swinging dragon-slaying damsel-rescuing barbarians.
And they thought I was crazy. MwahahahHAAHAHA!
(Heh, if I could travel back in time with a copy of Grand Theft Auto, I bet they'd think Judgment Day was at hand.)
