Gaming now and then, 2013 edition

Gaming now and then, 2013 edition

If someone would have presented a XBOX 360 for me and my friends 20 years ago, I’m pretty sure we probably would have fainted. When you compare similar games from the mid-eighties with today’s top notch video and computergames, the difference in graphics is quite amazing.

Here’s an interesting comparison of 11 games from the 80′s with todays killer games.

  1. While there is no doubt that graphics today are far more advanced, I feel a lot of these comparisons are misleading. Seven of the eleven comparisons are from pre-rendered footage of current gen games against in-game footage of older games. While the older games will obviously be far inferior graphically, the use of pre-rendered “wow” promotional screenshots creates an unfair comparison.

  2. I think it’s also weird that some of the older games have direct sequels and you chose not to use them in this comparison.
