Hey! Watch! Evolution of Video Games

There was a time, not so long ago, when games were little more than tiny squares with a less than diverse color palette. With how much gamers and developers focus on graphics today, it’s amazing to think what twenty plus years has done to our attitudes. Let’s all be honest and say it: we’re spoiled. However, with most things, a simple history lesson can do wonders in making one appreciate what one has and how much better off one is than those that came before.

Remember how lame Pong used to be?

Keep in mind that this was made in 2006 so the strides that we’ve made in the past 5 years is still leaps and bounds over what is presented here. Soon enough, we’ll have photo realistic scenes to play out through virtual reality headsets but let’s hope that whole uncanny valley thing is taken care of before then.
