An Ode to Games

Once a long time ago in the time of yore, bored little children sat and played with sticks, but then one day Poof!
Mr. Alcorn, made the game that started it all, a game that anyone could play. PONG.
And from there came this and that, from 4-bit, to 8, to 16, to 32, to 64, to1080!
Zelda and Mario and Samus and Kirby
Master Chief and War and All the FPS
And who can forget Ratchet and Sackboy and Zombies!
All of these can withstand the rain, and hail and sleet.
All of these are legend.
From WoW to Wiz101 and back again gamers play.
We play the day away
From Pong on the Atari to the NES
and the N64 to the PS
from there the XBox and Gamecube
to all of our present day glory.
No matter what our Age
No matter what our Gender
No matter what our Race
We play games

We Play the Games

For we are legends, villains, heroes, bards, thieves, wizards(woot), barbrians, robots, humans, lombaxes, and more.

Let it be known.

  1. Nice poem, but there were no 4-bit systems. 2600, Odyssey2, Colecovision, etc. are all 8-bit systems.
