12th September: National Video Games Day
National Video Games Day is observed annually on September 12th.
Video game players across the United States enjoy this day with much enthusiasm. From their very earliest days, video games been a blend of art form and industry.
On July 25, 1983, Walter Day and the Twin Galaxies Intergalactic Scoreboard out of Ottumwa, Iowa founded the United States National Video Game Team. Their early games used interactive electronic devices with various display formats. Thomas T. Goldsmith Jr. and Estle Ray Mann filed the first patent for an interactive electronic device in 1947. It was called the “Cathode ray tube amusement Device.”
From their earliest days, video games have transformed into something more than just a 2D interactive experience. So, get comfortable in your favorite gaming chair (preferably one with a vibrating massage feature,) grab a couple of controllers and sidle up to your favorite gaming console. It’s National Video Games Day all day long!
