Tennis For Two...

Waaay back in 1958, William Higinbotham invented the game Tennis For Two to liven up visitor day at his workplace, Brookhaven National Laboratory, but it remained largely unknown until 1981, when a lawyer trying to break a patent held for the Magnavox Odyssey version of Pong came across writings talking about the game. Blueprints of it were found to predate Magnavox's game and the case was settled out of court, but Tennis For Two went on to find fame as the second ever video game invented, since it was predated by A.S. Douglas' OXO game from 1952.
