Many of our readers probably love spending time playing video games, whether it's classics like Heroes of Might and Magic III or more modern hits with multimillion-dollar budgets. At the end of the 50s of the last century, the first video game looked like Bouncing on the oscilloscope screen a white dot, leaving behind a trail. But after half a century of the visual component of these digital entertainment has changed so much that the game is already able to compete with animation and feature films. We offer you to look at how graphics have evolved in video games over the past 60 years.
If in 70-e years, the market was dominated by Atari, Inc., in the early 80s, after the gaming industry collapsed in the course of severe crisis, the whole world has conquered the Japanese Nintendo. Its 8-bit console, the Famicom (in the US known as ) was born in 1983 and quickly became a hit. Given the huge number of great games, it was not surprising. In Russia the console got only in the early 90s in a Taiwanese clone Dendy, who earnestly sold the company Steepler, giving a fake for the licensed product. I think many of you remember and love games like Super Mario Bros., Battle City, Tetris (the game of our compatriot Alexey Pazhitnov), The Legend of Zelda , Castlevania, Contra, Mega Man, Chip and Dale, Duck Tales and other 8-bit hits.
Replace the 8-bit consoles came the 16-bit Sega Mega Drive (SNES). They offered customers a whole new level of visual quality of games. Who does not remember such wonderful toys as Sonic the Hedgehog, Mortal Kombat, Aladdin, Donkey Cong Country, Earthworm Jim and others. In 1994 there was another important industry event – the console Sony PlayStation, used as media CDs and offering users the projects with 3D graphics. I will never forget how he spent the evening after school for games Resident Evil, Final Fantasy VII, Crash Bandicoot, Tekken and Tomb Raider.
Of Course, if you compare the games of those years with modern AAA projects the budget of which sometimes exceeds $ 100 million, it becomes a little sad. After all, in our childhood, even primitive at first glance, the picture carried a lot more vivid emotions than pastrama effects, cool animations and almost indistinguishable from real people characters. On the other hand, progress is inevitable, and sooner or later game developers will still be able to reach that level, when looking at the computer screen or television, people can not with 100% certainty to say that the movie or game.
the Company Mark Zuckerberg has decided to compete with the platforms Twitch and YouTube, giving the streamers the opportunity to engage in favourite business without leaving the social network.
About the game that I first heard from my good friend who is a huge admirer of Czech game designer Daniel Vavra, gave us a wonderful game of Mafia.
