A Unique Look At The Evolution Of Graphics In Games

SHCube

When you’ve been gaming for a long enough period of time, it becomes easier to appreciate the gradual evolution of the graphical fidelity of video games. For the most part, it’s a slow, steady change, peppered with the occasional spike in improvement brought on by new technology, such as a new generation of consoles. In this video we get to witness a few decades worth of evolution in video games through cubes.

I’m particularly fond of the Silent Hill bit. A lone rusty cube surrounded by fog and ash represents that series nicely, I think.

I wish this was longer than it is, because it’s very much the type of thing I could watch for a substantially longer amount of time than its 3 1/2 minute running time.
