For a lot of people my age their first gamming console was NES, in my case it was that little heavy wonder known as the Atari 2600. I personally owned two a heavy sixer from 77 and the 4 switch model that was released around 1980. In my option the gameplay level that some of these games possessed has never since been reached. The great thing about some of these games was the fact that they were so short. You could pick it up and play with it for several hours (if you were good at the game) beat it and then do something else, but in the same strike could pick the game up and be just as entertained. Games like space invaders and missle command are perfect examples.
