Monday September 12, 2016 is Video Games Day.

“We all know the Playstation, the PC, the Xbox, the Gameboy, and all the other myriad examples of gaming devices out there in the world today. Gaming is a pervasive part of our culture. This day is dedicated to recalling this defining part of our culture and sharing it with our fellow gamers, new and old alike. Get your game on!

The history of Video Games Day is really the history of the video game, and that history goes back much farther than most people imagine. The first game ever created is often thought to be Bertie the Brain, an artificial intelligence designed to play Tic-Tac-Toe. A year later a computer was built called Nimrod, Nimrod was a computer built and displayed at the Festival of Britain in 1951 and designed to play a game called Nim.

From these humble beginnings things continued to build, first with Cabinet style games (those are the ones you put quarters in kids) which became hugely popular, and then into the first consoles, home based platforms you could play the games on. In the years that followed development of computers and video games just kept growing, until they now absolutely permeate our culture. What used to be a luxury item for the rich and elite has now become a standard part of most people’s homes, and a diversion that involves all ages.

Celebrating this day is both easy and fun, get together with your friends and play a bunch of video games! Dig out some of your old consoles and play favorites you haven’t touched in ages, and share them with the newest generation of gamers, or friends who just haven’t seen them. If you want to, have a people get together with game themed food and costumes, and of course decorations. This is an excuse to go down a path of digital reminiscence, do it with a friend.” ^sPm – #sharpharmade From ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/mWe0M
