Video GamesThe origin of video games lies in early cathode ray tube-based missile defense systems inthe late 1940s. These programs were later adapted into other simple games during the1950s. By the late 1950s and through the 1960s, more computer games were developed(mostly on mainframe computers), gradually increasing in sophistication and complexity.Following this period, video games diverged into different platforms: arcade, mainframe,console, personal computer and later handheld games.The first commercially viable video game was Computer Space in 1971, which laid thefoundation for a new entertainment industry in the late 1970s within the United States,Japan, and Europe. The first major crash in 1977 occurred when companies were forcedto sell their older obsolete systems flooding the market. Six years later a second, greatercrash occurred. This crash—brought on largely by a flood of poor quality video gamescoming into the market—resulted in a total collapse of the console gaming industry in theUnited States, ultimately shifting dominance of the market from North America to Japan.While the crash killed the console gaming market, the computer gaming market waslargely unaffected. Subsequent generations of console video games would continue to bedominated by Japanese corporations. Though several attempts would be made by NorthAmerican and European companies, fourth generation of consoles, their ventures wouldultimately fail. Not until the sixth generation of video game consoles would a non-Japanesecompany release a commercially successful console system. The handheld gamingmarket has followed a similar path with several unsuccessful attempts made by Americancompanies all of which failed except for some limited successes in the handheld electronicgames early on. Currently only Japanese companies have any major successful handheldgaming consoles, although in recent years handheld games have come to form part ofdevices like cell phones and PDAs as technology continues to converge.
