How Games Characters Have Evolved

For anyone who can remember to when the likes of Donkey Kong, Mario and Link were super hi-tech, they will also remember that the images of these characters were slow, strangely coloured and in many cases hard to make out on the screen due to a combination of twelve inch TV screens and low resolution 8 bit graphics.

So, in today’s gaming world such imperfections would not do, but without putting these characters side by side it is still difficult to match the differences between 8 bit characters and today’s 3D computer generated images. Luckily, there is an info graphic that shows the evolution of the Mario and his friends and the difference is staggering.
