Writer Reflects Upon Past Video Games
Many things can bring up a feeling of childhood nostalgia, including, a favorite book, a favorite movie or song, and even in some more recent cases, a favorite computer game.
The history of computer games stretch back to Pong, one of the first computer games, released in 1972, according to an article in LifeWire, by D.S. Cohen.
For this generation, computer games play a vital role in our childhood.
One Wooster High School Student, Elisabeth Kille (11), said “I used to play a Mini Golf game when I was a kid.”
Another WHS student, Julien Lubell (11), said, “ Minecraft was my favorite game when I was a kid.” Minecraft was initially released in 2009, and has gained a massive following since its release.
The ways in which nostalgia is felt have changed with each generation and computer games seem to be an increasing way that people spent their childhood.
