Barack Obama Loves 'Pong,' Change


Posted August 7, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

Barack Obama is a gamer! The would-be presidential contender Barack Obama was asked by Entertainment Weekly what the last videogame he played was, and he said Pong.

"That gives you a sense of my age. I loved that game," Obama said.

How Obama's love of the fast-paced game of paddles and bloops originally released in 1972 will affect Obama's presidential policies will be seen if he manages to win the election.

He also said he doesn't like American Idol, although his kids and his wife do.
