Hey, here's a great idea, why don't you read the freakin' book first, buddy?

The first chapter starts off in 1940s/50s with the creation of Tennis for Two back in the post WWII days.
I'd hardly call that pop culture. It's actually quite full of good information and is written well. Not just HERE'S PICTURES AND FLOWCHARTS. It's written like a solid essay.

This is pretty much what I was saying. Its like saying everybody eats apples, but that doesn't mean it's kool to eat apples. Video Games had the double problem of both not many people playing them and also not many people regarding them highly.

The book that the other guy posted may just be a catchy title though, so I'm not gona knock it either way.

I dont need to read the book. Pop culture and main stream are different things. I am not arguing games arent part of pop culture

An examble of being kool, or regarded highly, where not many people do it (though if many people do it it's usually something that's considered atleast mediocre) may be something like owning a big house, not many people actually do it, but it's still kool.

Whatever caused the first boom with the Pong machines, i'm not sure.

The NES trying to grab new demographics with ROB and subsequently move in with SMB, and the Master System competing with similar-looking games probably made the larger explosion.
