Game Graphics: the road done so far

Today i was amazed when i found a trailer of the upcoming “Tomb Raider” video game. It got me thinking about how awesome computer’s 3D graphics are today and how they were when i got my first console. Nowadays i don’t have the time (neither the computer) to play any game but from time to time i watch some videos and look at some screenshots of actual games and they look pretty realistic (here is an example).

So, for those who doesn’t follow the game industry nowadays, i will show one video from the first “Tomb Raider” game (looked amazing back then) and the one that i saw today (you will notice the diference for sure).


Back then:
