Popular games like Spacewar were first published in 1962, and many more games followed. If we look back even further, the 1980s saw the introduction of a large number of now-extinct popular games.
Here, in this article, we’ll go into more detail about the list of three well-known games from the 1980s that are now forgotten:
1. Netrek: The first multiplayer PC game, “Netrek,” which pitted 16 players against one another, was released in 1988. At the time, the game was quite popular because it was based in the Star Trek universe.
The players compete against one another on 40 planets while assuming the roles of the Romulans, Federation, Klingons, or Orion. At the dawn of computer games, this game was played all around the globe, but alas it is no longer available.
2. Pong: Another game on this list is “Pong,” which was released by Atari in 1972 and became popular right away since it is based on the arcade sports video game of the same name and features two-dimensional visuals. The game is referred to as “one of the earliest arcade video games.”
It was also a commercially successful game also played a very important role in introducing the first game console known as “Magnavox Odyssey“. The game is not popular much these days and has been extinct now.
