There is something about Pong that I have always enjoyed. Not sure why. Maybe it is the simple play or the fact that Pong started the video game craze. Either way it looks great!

I guess i should say it looks great and it does but its not about that i suppose, its about the addictive gameplay.

Does the Vectrex not have a pong game anyway?

No, it doesn't really have a Pong title.  The game is being updated as it plays a bit slow on real hardware.
