Playstation graphics have come a long way

Cutting edge! - Darryn circa 1997

You know what the really bad thing is about going to E3 in a year where next-gen consoles were unveiled? Upon returning home, all my current-gen games looked crap in comparison to what I had experienced. I’ll be the first to admit that graphics don’t make a game, but I am also a high definition whore. And the Playstation brand has come a long way from jagged edges to bleeding edge visuals.

Oh hell, some of those video examples above have brought back some cringe-worthy memories. Just look at those anti-aliased edges on game characters. Solid Snake didn’t even have hands in the first Metal Gear Solid game, but had to rely on blocks of wood for appendages instead.

I scoff at those visuals. Scoff to the max! But at least I have some good memories to go with those classic games.
