Here's how much video game graphics have improved over 30 years
 

 

The wonderful folks at The Art of the Title specialize in putting together compilation videos of, you guessed it, title sequences. They can be from movies, from specific directors, from film franchises and so on. In this one, they're tackling the title design of video games. You can see just how much video game graphics have improved since we all first started playing. To look at Donkey Kong and then see some of the stuff today is just incredible.

While pretty neat vid, it's not capturing the advancement of graphics in gaming. Directly from the quoted source, this is how title designs have changed.

What a boring video with loud blaring music.

 

I wish it were more technical and explaining in there.

It seemed more of a celebration of gaming not the graphics.

I agree with Sanke1 that it was boring though.

Well I had good fun trying to figure each of the titles out before it displayed the name. It was also interesting to see how our introductions have moved over to more hollywood-style openings. That's to be expected with better graphics, but it was interesting nonetheless.

Warn people for misleading thread titles please.

 

I can't believe someone wasted their time arranging that horrid video.

I believe you could make a direct connection between better advancements in graphics and title designs.

Not really. Most of those titles show FMVs and hardly any actual in game graphics.

Really, I thought it was a nice video, doesn't really show any of the more creative title screens but it was a nice vid.
