The earliest digital games date back to the 1960s, with many citing Spacewar as the first true computer game. The problem was that back then, computers were still extremely expensive, which meant only a small portion of the population could participate. All of this changed when engineer Ralph Baer developed the first prototype video game units. Known as the Brown Box, this device was innovative, but never quite caught on with the public. The true gaming revolution came in the mid 1980s when Nintendo released its first Nintendo Entertainment System. This altered the course of the gaming industry and established the gamer culture that we know today.
