The First Video Game

Though 1972’s Pong has often been credited as the first popular video game, the mantle goes to Tennis For Two, which was created by a nuclear physicist, William Higinbotham, in 1958.

The primitive game was a sideways view of a tennis court, with the ball moving back and forth, and the two players watching the five-inch cathode ray tube display and using a mechanical-electrical system filled with wires, and the world’s first joystick: a large cube with a button and knob.

The video game arcade era went mainstream in the 80s, also a time when the physicist was finally credited for his pioneering work.

  1. Do not immediately jump to questions focusing on the topic at hand.
  2. Coax, don't hammer. There will be times that the interviewee will have a hard time answering some questions.
  3. Make some questions open ended.
  4. Ask what you don't know.
  5. Let the interviewees wander a bit, but always be in control.
  6. Tell the topics and subjects you wish to cover but don't send advance questions.
  7. Do not ask the questions that were already asked on previous interviews.
  8. Listen. They key is to pay close attention to what is not answered and make on-the-spot judgements on why that area was skipped or glossed.
  9. Try not to ask a question that your subject has already answered. It discloses that you really weren't listening after all.

Marketing And Product Development Taught By A Blockbuster Game

Animal Crossing: New Horizons sold 13 million copies in six weeks, making it one of the most popular games of modern times. The universal, de-stressing nature of the game contrasted with what 2020 unleashed at the same time in the month of March.

One of the first marketing lessons that Nintendo, the developer of the runaway hit game provided was that timing is everything.
