Pong, by Atari, is one of the greatest games I've ever played. You play as a white bar, whose parents died in the Bar-zilian war at the hands of the commander of the Bar-zilian army. You wonder throughout the city until you meet a man. This man puts you through training exercises that would be difficult for a grown-man. As each day passes, you get older, and stronger; until finally, you're a man. You join the army and enlist in the war.
As soon as you get out there, you are met by your platoon. "Get in." One of them says. "It's gonna be a long ride..." Groans another. You get in. The driver follows the car in front of you. You start to dose off, when suddenly you get road-side bombed. You've been ambushed. All your comrades are dead, and you must fight for your life. Just when you think you won, a man comes up behind you and stabs you.
You wake up, and your wound has been mended. You are in a dank dungeon. After a timeskip of a month, the White Bar-barians pull out of the war, and you are set free. But your goal is not achieved. You drive away in one of the White Bar-zilian's vehicles, and you drive to the secret hideout of the commander, dodging bombs and bullets the entire way. You fight your way through the building until you meet the commander.
"Hello... Commander..."
"Please. Call me The Computer."
Everything around you goes black except for the computer and a dotted white line in the middle of the room.

The computer shoots a white ball at you, and you deflect it back at him. The ball misses and hits a structure beam of the building. The ground shakes violently under you, and you must run to get to the exit in time, dodging all the enemies the entire time.
You make it out. You did it. You avenged your parents. You fall to the ground, and die. You will always be a hero to the White Bar-barians.

The graphics and audio could've been better, though.

Pong was the first game developed by Atari Inc., founded in June 1972 by Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney. Pong (marketed as PONG) is one of the earliest arcade video games, and is a tennis sports game featuring simple two-dimensional graphics. The aim is to defeat an opponent—either computer-controlled or a second player—by earning a higher score. The game was originally manufactured by Atari Incorporated (Atari), who released it in 1972. Pong was created by Allan Alcorn as a training exercise assigned to him by Atari founder Nolan Bushnell. Bushnell based the idea on an electronic ping-pong game included in the Magnavox Odyssey, which later resulted in a lawsuit against Atari. Surprised by the quality of Alcorn's work, Atari decided to manufacture the game.

The success of Pong attracted the attention of Ralph Baer, the inventor of the Magnavox Odyssey, and his employer, Sanders Associates. Sanders had an agreement with Magnavox to handle the Odyssey's sublicensing, which included dealing with infringement on their exclusive rights. However, Magnavox had not pursued legal action against Atari and numerous other companies which released Pong clones. Magnavox argued that Atari had infringed on Baer's patents and his concept of electronic ping-pong based on detailed records Sanders kept of the Odyssey's design process dating back to 1966. Other documents included depositions from witnesses and a signed guest book that demonstrated Bushnell had played the Odyssey's table tennis game prior to releasing Pong.

Atari has also remade the game on numerous platforms. Pong has been included in several Atari compilations on platforms including the Sega Mega Drive, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo DS, and personal computer. Through an agreement with Atari, Bally Gaming and Systems developed a slot machine version of the game.The Atari developed TD Overdrive included Pong as an extra game to be played during the loading screen. In 1999, the game was remade for home computers and the PlayStation with 3D graphics and power-ups
