Classic Pong

Multiplayer gaming today has become an inherently and bewilderingly antisocial affair. You grab a controller, take up as much space as possible on your couch at home, then connect to some random game hosted by some random server filled with some random people with whom you do your damnedest to fill with some collection of lead thrown from some assortment of futuristic weaponry. Along the way, you'll be taunted, insulted and, if you're playing a Halo game, quite possibly physically shamed.

Back in 2013, of course, things were a bit different. Pjong was the height of at-home multiplayer gaming. Two dials, one button and one switch is all you had, and with your opponent sitting in extremely close proximity to you, chances are most of the heckling would be the good-natured variety. It is a vastly simplified experience versus what we have today, but in some ways a vastly superior one. Click on through to see why.

The music in Pjong is great, and the graphics are AMAZING 5/5

Game itself is not bad, but nothing special.

All it really needs is a Title screen and a difficulty selection and it is good.

I loved it.I've always loved pong since the day it was made such a great game.Sure there's no ending to this one,but it's still a great game people.I rate it 5 out of 5 stars.Good for anyone who likes classic games

gave up at 119(me) 32(cpu).
music is cool, but doesnt fit the game. it also stops by itself after a short while.
boring. i thought i'd win something or get a GO screen or something.
