Ever wondered which was the first PC game?

Written by igcompany on Sunday, 05 August 2012 11:51.

I am sure that almost 100% of you that played a game, wondered which was the first game? Well on the computer the first game was called Spacewar! and was concieved in 1961 and launched in February 1962 after more than 200 hours of works. It was a great effort by Steve Russell, the creator of Spacewar! but it opened the world of PC gaming and we need to thank him for that, not only PC gamers but all of us who love games, no matter the gaming platform.

The game was featuring two armed spaceships trying to shoot each other. Was of course, a simple game but it was a hit at that time.

Spacewar! can still be found in it's original version at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.

1995 Game Releases by EA Sports

Written by igcompany on Wednesday, 01 August 2012 17:32.

1995 brought not many new games but a few changes that we still see today. The games for soccer, basketball, football and hockey all were named the same just like they are today (with some minor changes ... NBA Live is now NBA Elite).

1995 brought a new big game for a big sport that didn't have a PC game. And that would be rugby. The decision of releasing a rugby game was also affected by the 1995 World Cup hosted by South Africa which is actually the name of the game. Even if Electronic Arts didn't had pretty much success with this game along the years and released it only every few years i always enjoy playing it. The last Rugby version released was Rugby 08.

Now let's take a look on how the covers of the games EA Sports released in 1995 looked like:

1. FIFA Soccer '96
