Yep ... seen this question here before. I am pre-pong myself. I remember playing some of the mechanical games in early 1970's that can be seen at this site ...

One I remember was a P-51 Lightning mechanical fighter plane game where the playfield ground rolled underneath the plane like a treadmill. A gunsight was lit onto glass in front of you and you had to shoot targets stuck to the playfield. Archaic stuff really but ground-breaking for the day.

I love stuff like that! Before my time, but I love to see it. Such creativity and aesthetics back then. I really like the designs on carnival rides and details on old arcade machines like fortune tellers and things.

I saw some of those games at the House on the Rock in Wisconsin. Man those were awesome. The care to make them and all mechanical. Very nice stuff.
