Evolution of Video Game Graphics 1958-2020

Recommended Posts

Something I was just ruminating about.....

A look back at where we've been, where we are, and where we're going......

And I remember playing so many of these games....! Watching the evolution of computers and gaming, in real time.

I remember when Pong came out.  That was a great game and a nice break from all the clanging and bells of pinball machines.

I grew up when Atari first out and played the usual games on it at that time, PacMan, Asteroids, Space Invaders etc. Then I got a Commodore 64 and the subLogic Flight Sim. 

Unlike most members here, I haven’t played a video game, aside from the EA Sports Tiger Woods golf game back in the early 2000’s. For some reason I never had a desire for traditional video games after my youth (aside from the TW golf game). I knew a lot of people into Madden, COD, and whatever all the other popular ones that have come and gone since the early 2000’s.

I don’t know why I just stuck to simming and was never drawn into modern video games. Maybe it was because I have too many other hobbies and the little bit of free time I did spend on the computer was spend on a flight sim. 

I’ll probably never own an XBox or PlayStation or buy a video game, aside from another flight sim since some consider them games (not me). Hard to believe that some people are even winning money and making a career out of being good players. Never would I have thought 20 years ago people would play video games as a job and make money at it, sometimes a lot of it.

It is incredible to see how far it has come in what really is such a short space of time in the grand scheme of things. 

Admittedly, i'm only 25 so probably a youngster when it comes to this however my first gaming experience was my dads ZX Spectrum as a kid. We played Manic Miner together and man was that an absolute blast! Later we got a PS1 and started playing Driver, DOOM and Theme Hospital. Oh the good days and where everything came from.
