I need resources for a video game research paper, help?
I can't find any resources other than websites for information about how video games started or just on certain brands. Is there anything I should search to find the sources I need? I need 4 books and 3 websites/magazines/etc

Video gaming started with pong, when two people got together and made pong, they stuck the machine in a bar for each play costing 25 cents, the next day the bar owner called up the people who made it and said it wasn't working already, and when they came they opened it up and found it jam packed full of quarters... Thus, the gaming race and age was born.
There were earlier 'video games' but it really took off with pong.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pong
