10 video game firsts: I enjoyed this article, which reveals the owner of these titles.
- First 3D shooter
- First cutscenes
- First real-time-strategy game
- First online multiplayer game
- First handheld game
- First virtual online world
- First ‘Sims’-type game
- First sports game
- First full musical score
- First downloadable game service
And Space Invaders had cut scenes? Sure enough. Fast forward to about 1:30.
I liked the green Football 2 that let you pass and run backwards, and I also played a lot of the handball basketball. Many a long car ride spent playing those handhelds.
I didn’t get the Mattel Football game, but I bought Football II (so you could pass), Baseball, Hockey, and Soccer. I still have them, and they still work. Let me know if you want to play. :)
