I was born in 1980 and I got all of them right until I got tired of it. Their quizzes are too long.

Magnavox Odyssey holds a special place in gaming history, as one of the earliest game consoles. From the 70s!

It connected to your TV but didn't have the graphics capability to do color, so there were film overlays, in 13" 19" and 25" sizes. The B&W graphics showed through the film and it was... colorful but not really.
