If you went back in time and told Baer that 1) video games would, by the time of his eventual demise, be a bigger industry that TV and radio, and 2) The highest selling game ever revolves around the inner turmoil of a bisexual, sociopathic redneck thief and spree killer who helps two guys kill CIA agents, do you think he'd be elated or immediately kill himself?

After great pain a formal feeling comes--
The nerves sit ceremonious like tombs;
The stiff Heart questions--was it He that bore?
And yesterday--or centuries before?

The feet, mechanical, go round
A wooden way
Of ground, or air, or ought,
Regardless grown,
A quartz contentment, like a stone.

This is the hour of lead
Remembered if outlived,
As freezing persons recollect the snow--
First chill, then stupor, then the letting go.

I would like to share my personal Ralph H. Baer story.
A little over 5 Years ago, I decided I wanted to get the autograph someone who was sorta famous, but was definitely a industry visionary. Who's autograph did I want? Ralph H. Baer.
It all started on evening of March 12, 2009. I sent Mr. Baer a email asking him if I could have his autograph. 19 minutes later, I get a response from him. He told me to send him a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope (SASE), and he would sent me back a signed photo. You can only image the rush of excitement I got when I got that email.
Two weeks later, I sent off a padded bubble mailer with another self addressed one inside. I also sent a note along with it, a note I expected to never see again. (Besides the digital copy stored on my computer.)
A week later, I got the self addressed mailer back with a singed photo in it. But that was not the only thing that came with it. The note I sent him was also sent back, with a short personal message included and his initials.
Getting the signature was cool enough, but that little personal message? That made the whole thing a whole lot more meaningful. Mr. Baer didn't have to to do that, and I sure wasn't expecting it either. It gave me a sense of what kind of man he was. Someone who was happy to see that people cared, and was appreciative of that.
Here are the scans of the photo and the note:
http://i156.photobucket.com/albums/t29/nightwheel/RalphHBaerAutograph.jpg
http://i156.photobucket.com/albums/t29/nightwheel/RalphBaersignedletterfixed.jpg
Rest in Peace Mr. Baer. Thank you for all the inventions you created for this world. Your visionary mind will be truly missed.

The guy seemed to have disliked modern video game violence, though he wasn't a prick about it. He also commented on how mainstream games were mostly interactive movies, though it's not his industry anymore and he likes that they can be taken seriously by adults and scoffs at the notion that they are only for kids.

Seems like a really standup guy, he was also working a full time job all the way till the end.

I don't think it's possible to really "father" something. Many similar ideas exist at the same time, most often competing to get on the Market first. Stuff like the NES, Pacman and Donkey Kong? Something else would have done the same thing if they hadn't come along. It's happened throughout history too.

Pong is pretty cool though.

Funny, just realized that if Baer fathered anything specifically about video games compared to the other early game inventors, it's specifically the home console.

Who would've though such an under appreciated man would have so much impact in the life of millions around the world over, to the point where entire subcultures would form around the concept of a "videogame" and millions of lonely people could shitpost on an anime imageboard rip-off. Best of wishes for his family.

a 92yo Ralph Baer on his death bed asks you to come closer and tell him what became of his favorite creation, video games

what do you do /v/?

show him a clip from stick of truth where you perform an abortion on a man disguised as a woman, mess it up by vacuuming too long and sucking up his testicle then die shot by government agents covering up a spaceship crash that spread a nazi zombie virus.

I'm not gonna lie, the more I think about it the more depressed I get. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't have had some of the best experiences of my life, wouldn't have met some of my best friends, and wouldn't have had the daily joy/misery of browsing /v/. F in peace you magnificent bastard.

He probably didn't give a single fuck about the modern gaming industry, so I would leave and let him spend time with his family, something he does care about.

consoles were always pretty shit, especially in the late 90s when PC graphics cards came down in price

really, the Dreamcast was the last "good" console, the PS2 was only good because from 2005-2012 you could walk into any gamestop and get 30 games + console for $100
