Joystick101.org posts Nolan Bushnell's answers to questions from readers. Bushnell invented Pong, founded home and arcade gaming pioneer Atari, and started the Chuck E. Cheese pizza restaurant chain. On the decline of arcade gaming: "I don't accept the premise that consumer games have hurt the arcades. The arcades have hurt
themselves. The games in the arcades have not kept pace in a lot of the things, and they have gotten too complex for a lot of
casual players and casual interaction."
