Whenever I start playing a few games on my Xbox 360, I couldn't help but wonder how it all came to be. My parents always tell me that video games weren't exactly popular back in the days and that it was considered an idea of the future. With this in mind, I began to recall my early childhood memories when it comes to video games. And since I didn't have anything good to do today, I decided to do some research about the complete history of video game consoles. To my surprise, I realized that the very first console I had back when I was a kid wasn't exactly the "first game console". I had this notion that my old console was the very first produced, so I guess it was indeed worth the time researching about video game consoles.

In any case, let's start our blast from the past as I take you back from the humble beginnings of our beloved video game consoles.
