Video games are quietly winning the entertainment war. And these aren’t just fun ways to kill time anymore. The reality is it’s a booming industry, and a top esports stock could make a 100% return for those who buy soon.
You see, since the first commercially successful video game came out in 1972, people were hooked.
Pong was just a simple tennis-like game where players use paddles to hit a ball back and forth. But it was more than that – it was a huge technological step and an escape for kids and adults across the world.
Then in 1978 Atari released Space Invaders, an arcade game where a pilot would shoot descending aliens, preventing them from reaching the bottom of the screen. That year, Atari would lay what would be the cornerstone in one of the hottest sectors of gaming: esports. In 1980, 10,000 gamers would compete against each other in the “Space Invaders Championship.”
And the industry changed forever.
