Games as are changing almost daily, with each new evolution pushing the boundaries of what was once considered impossible.

When Allan Alcorn created Pong some 43 years ago, chances are good that he had no idea that his training exercise would eventually pave the way for pocketable games that allow players to spend hundreds of dollars on virtual goods, compete against other players from around the world, or even land a job at a multinational company.

But for better or worse, that's the direction where games are heading - and it's an amazing to think of what they'll accomplish in the months and years ahead as we continue to innovate with them.

Yet before we look at the future, we need to take a good look back at the past - or at least the past week that was.
