Have you all beat - among the first popularized games were text adventures, noteably, Adventure! by Scott Adams, as I recall.
I remember playing Ultima I and II in computer stores that had those computers and programs set up for display, in the mid to late 70's. I believe
these came out before the commodore 64 or Pong were available commercially.
Please correct me if I am wrong, it was so long ago.
OH! When I was in high school in 1976-1977, I played a lunar lander type game where the code was written on paper with hole punches! The game typed
out vectors (You are traveling at X speed horzontally and Y speed vertically, your altitude is Z. How much fuel do you wish to use?) It then
calculated the result and gave you a new set of vectors.
I believe this will beat all unless there were some folks invoved in computer tech in the mid 70's.
