Tom discovers that in the gaming world, it takes a little practice to walk away with first place.



  1. Wonder what happens when you make the cpu weaker

  2. Is it possible the guy from the Smithsonian got it wrong? H didn't put "wood" laminate covering over it to make it look "like a device"! In the 70s, wood laminate would be placed on tech to make it more like a living room accessory, not a high tech component!

  3. ur the reason why i play minecraft roblox and terraria

  4. Anyone else know this guy from the flash and yogi bear

  5. R.I.P Nolan thank you for making gaming history✊🎮

  6. oh god thx so much!
    You made my life light up!
    Father of video games!

  7. im don't like 2011 brown box im like 2021 PS5 haha

  8. 2:25 Wrong, it’s not dangerous and risky if it has undergone a proper restoration.

  9. Here I am still waiting for the 4k mod pack.

  10. R.I.P without you I wouldn't be able to have some of the friends I have many people wouldn't have jobs many people wouldn't have entertainment we are all thankful for what you did to evrey campaign, quest, mini game, story game and multiplayer game you will never be forgotten

  11. Fun fact:dislikers are gamers parent

  12. Please do one on Jerry Lawson the father of video games

  13. Yo do you need cps for it because I get 10cps

  14. Its a shame Nolan Bushnell gets all the credit for being the father of videogames😒

  15. From a old game of pong to a realistic (delayed) freelance of cyberpunk, without him our generations would be a dystopi

  16. My goals are beyond your understanding 😡

  17. He is the reason why red dead redemption 2 exists….. Respect

  18. I wish they would honored Ralph bear in there in 💚🕹🎮Video Game Awards💚💚 before he passed away
    Rip Ralph bear The crestor of Video game , console, controller and industry as he know today 💚💚🇺🇲🎮🕹
    Gaming God 💚💚
    Gaming for life 💚💚

  19. This lucky man! Interesting that I'm fairly certain the guy starts off giving Nolan credit for Pong, then immediately shows that Ralph came up with it. Haha. Happens a lot. I think Ralph's employer at the time (Magnavox) actually successfully sued Atari over Pong. No surprise. "Pong" isn't too far removed from "Ping Pong," I'm afraid. Should have tried Zong or Klong perhaps. 😉

    R.I.P., Sir Baer.

  20. good thing that in never hangs even if it is 49 years old,
    my cp is only 3 years old and it really hangs a lot

  21. Wish Jerry Lawson could've been there too. He's often overlooked as the father of cartridges. I feel like this is a Bob Kane/Bill Finger fiasco.

  22. Bruh I have to thank this dude for everything he was the start

  23. rip Ralph Baer he died on 6th december 2014

  24. I'm doing things today I only dreamed of as a kid. Thank you for this wonderful invention Ralph.

  25. Im gonna build it tooo using logic gates. Thanks! U are still and will always be inspiring people probably until the sun explodes
