  • because of the demand for better graphics, i dont think games today wont look that different to games decades from now. probably just shader and lighting tweaks. compared to the drastic change of how games in the 80s-90s look to today

    gerveegervee7 dagar sedan
    • That makes sense actually. At least until we get to a point where games become indistinguishable from reality, which I honestly think will be just as drastic.

  • I was 14 when my dad brought home a TRS-80 Color Computer for Christmas in 1980. It had 16KB of RAM, a cassette tape for a drive, two joysticks, and a game port. there were games on cassette too. This ran MS-BASIC and when you created animated graphics you had to choose between higher resolution and fewer colors and fewer pages, or more pages with more colors with lower resolution. The resolution was basically like grid paper and to make circles or ellipticals you'd choose the center point, then height, then width, then how much of the circle you wanted to draw, and you could fill it with colors, but to draw a circle you used SIN and COS. MS-BASIC is a lot like VBA only you had to number each line so you usually gave yourself a cushion so you could add lines if you wanted to add stuff so the first line was 10, the second line was 20 and so on. I made a racquet ball game, like Pong only single player and you could make different size balls depending on what level of difficulty you chose. Programming music was a lot of trial and error because it was not straight forward! I did some simulations from "Lost in Space" and "Star Trek" with their theme songs, but playing the intro to "Stairway to Heaven" took months! In 1987 I saw Pink Floyd on the Delicate Sound of Thunder tour and I started doing a ton of animation from the light show I saw at that concert! It's nowhere close to what the concert looked like but man, the Varilite backdrop and the spider lights that rose out of the stage were incredible! The Pulse tour took that up a notch but even the DSoT tour still blows anything away touring now!

    • PC's have already had 144hz (compared to 120) and 4K has been possible, though expensive, for quite some time now. Also new graphics cards have made it actually viable at acceptable frame-rates.

    • ​@I Suck at Robotron That is NOT how clickbait works. Nobody uses the term "graphics" in that way, so it is expected that when a youtuber talks about graphics they are talking aboout video games graphics and not graphic stuff in general. Stop it. Get some help.

  • Good video format! Progressing through the technologies and referring back to the early days of graphics throughout the video keeps the attention of those of us who are fond of those early days, much better than progressing through the video on a timeline. This may just be a consequence of the chosen organization of the essay, but I like it. It not only makes it more entertaining throughout, but also causes me to pay attention to the details I may otherwise not be drawn to. Well done!
