Define PC in this context?
From the first sandwich board home creations through Commodore/Atari etc.. Or are we talking more Intel DOS/Windows which were probably the first ubiquitous "PC"s

From what I've heard, most credit Pong with being the first game ever made. All games, even console games, are developed on computers and are then compiled for the target system.

Like SDPhantom said: Pong is considered the first computer game ever made.


The first PC or Personal Computer is generally considered to be the KENBAK-1. I don't think there were any games for it. It was not widely sold.

The first Personal Computer with a decent install base is the Altair 8800
Kill the Bit game I *think* is the only game on that platform

Pong was the first interactive video style game but it was predated by various text based games like D&D

After a quick Google search, I found an article for Bertie the Brain, a tic-tac-toe game demonstrated at the Canadian National Exhibition in 1950. The predecessor for Pong called Tennis For Two was made in 1958.
