Games "Unfortunately, many of the logic chips that make up Pong are no longer readily available. There are newer parts that will perform the same function but they have different pin connections. I started by re-drawing and adapting some the circuits to the available parts." Recreating Pong from scratch. In its original hardware form. Crazy cool.

...some also earlier than Pong. IMHO one of better gems is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spacewar! - its 1962 version running on PDP-1 emulator: http://spacewar.oversigma.com/

Think about it - the code you can play under that link has half a century, made only 17 years after the end of WW2; the people involved are dying out.

Another gem: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_Space (also dedicated hw; so far no emu, it seems :/ - or in this case, would that have to be a circuit simulator?)
