Video Game Graphics Through The Years

Beitrag von jamescarlson »

There was little processing power for impressive graphics, so developers had to make do with what they had. However, there were exceptions.

Star Wars, which used insane 3D color vector graphics and even audio clips from the wildly popular movies, was a smash hit. Games like Star Wars would eventually pave the way for console games like Star Fox and other graphical innovations.
After gardening more processor power, game developers were able to break out of the limitations set by older gaming systems. Not only were video games moving into the home full time, but they were becoming more polished and better to look at (at least by 1980s standards).

The Atari 2600 took arcade games out of the crowded, loud arcade hall and brought them into the living room. While arcades took a financial hit from this, gamers got all the benefits.

Fast forward a few years, and you have the first Nintendo console, the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). The NES had some fantastic video game graphics. Look at games like Punch-Out!!, Kirby’s Adventure, and Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse.

These games all but made the 1970s and 1980s arcade titles look like amateur hour.

Then comes the powerhouse: the Super Nintendo. This console is still lauded as being one of the best ever made. It brought games like Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario RPG, and Star Fox to gamers everywhere.
