The Father of Video Games – Ralph Baer

Ralph Baer Bench
Manchester, New Hampshire

We travel to Arms Park in Manchester, NH, the location of a bench dedicated to the “Father of Video Games”, Ralph Baer. Baer created his “Brown Box” which led to the Magnavox Odyssey, the first home video game console.

    Hi people. How are you doing? I’m always so grateful to God because three times Ralph Baer and I e-mailed each other. He was such a very kind person. So why God?? He is love. With love I can treat anyone at any time the way I want to be treated. How?? God’s "love letter" the Bible says how: I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. So when I through faith ask him to give me the ability and desire to value and be kind to myself, God and others, even during the hardest situations, then God is pleased and I even find the reason for human existance/mine: to know God more and more and more. I find nothing compares to him while there are, surely, many good things like playing TV handball and other acceptable, commonsense, and moral games that don’t go against God’s purposes. I owe this all to God in thanks for how good he is to me and everyone!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the truth-since God is the source of all truth. He’s shown me this with his love. Believe, He says to us. Are we paying any attention to God, the Creator?
