So this fall it will be 10 years since Crysis shocked us with its graphcis and forced us all to go buy a new highend GPU.
It was a real milestone in gaming graphics, but it also sort of marked the end of rapid development in gaming graphics, things didnt get much better since then. I thought it would be interesting to look at how graphics developed over the period of 10 years for last 30 years by presenting a screenshot of the game that had arguably the best graphics in each given year and comparing them to one another. So lets begin.
Best graphics of 1987 (2D sprites);
1997 (the dawn of 3D era);
2007 (the pinnacle of 3D);
2017 (not that much better at all);
Maybe 2027, we will be in VR?
