Graphics- can't live with 'em, can't live.... wait a minute- that doesn't work. Ummmm.... aw, heck- let's just cut to the chase, shall we? Graphics have come a long way since the infancy of video games. From two white bars bouncing a white dot across a black screen, to crudely-assembled monochromatic icons, to full cinematic sequences that are virtually indistinguishable from live action, graphics have developed in leaps and bounds over the last 30-odd years. The current generation of hardware is capable of producing some mind-blowing spectacles.This week on the show, we'll be talking about graphics in general- games with great graphics, games with disappointing graphics, games that pushed the boundaries of what a particular gaming system is capable of. Obviously we've got our own thoughts on this, but tell us- what are some of your favourite examples of graphics- good, bad, or ugly?Thanks for watching on Vimeo and iTunes (and if you're watching on iTunes, don't forget to rate the show).
