    Thank you, Ralph Baer.

    You made it possible for this perform called video games to be recongized as something amazing. I don't know if you knew how big it would become, but something tells me it brought you joy to know that others were overjoyed to play things that was the product of your creation.

    I hope that you find peace, wherever you're at, and that you have a gaming haven without lag, glitches or corrupted saves.

    I asked my parent to get me a Nintendo 64 when I was younger. Not surprisingly, they picked me up an Odyssey2 console at a garage-sale. As a kid I was pissed!

    As an adult now I feel fortunate for having experienced an important part of gaming history that most people won’t.

    Damn I wish I would have kept that thing!

    RIP Mr. Baer!

    Yes, I saw this on the news. My son always makes fun of me because I remembered Pong from when I was four. The man lived long enough to see what wonderful contributions he made to the world. I bet he was amazed and proud. He was also involved in the "Simon". That device has never gone out of style. There is a new version out called "Simon Swipe".
