Pong is BaDong!

4 years, 1 month ago at Oct 30 2:38
Pong rules! I remember playing this game in a particular arcade in the late 90's. I miss it, Pong is simple, great and very addicting to me. It's pretty much the first great mainstream game. My generation and the next probably won't care about the "old boring" games, but they're fantastic and NOT boring. I love 'em waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more than new games. Pong for life!!

" If I've got a friend around, I still enjoy playing this game today. It's just simple fun. Who needs fancy graphics when all you need is a pal and some friendly competition?...Unless it involves a bet where the loser walks around downtown Seattle in a dress......Actually, you know what? I hate this game."

"Arcade - 1972 "Great for its time? Pong was practically the only game of its time--every other title on this list owes this simple table-tennis simulator a massive debt. Unlike other prehistoric arcade fare (I'm looking at you, Space War), Pong was legitimately exciting, thanks to its nifty dial controllers. Twirling your knob to the increasing tension of a long volley until finally climaxing in a point...wait, what was I talking about? Hell, Pong is still fun today. Just a few months back, I l"
