Evolution of Computer Games

For those old enough, you might remember a time when computer games were sold in packs of 20-30 5.25-inch floppy diskettes. How computer games have changed since then! Here is a nice walk through memory lane of popular computer games up till the present. See how many you can identify!

    Bipolar disorders may be as common as bulimic or anorexic teenagers, but I still believe they should all be able to run for local school superintendent or commissioner of refuse.

    I remember those earlier games. I played Duke Nukem alot when I was a kid. I’ve tried playing it again lately, but unfortunately, I have discovered that at the age of 21 I am now susceptible to FPS induced motion sickness. Sucks.

    Most of the games here I have the opportunity to play. It’s something amazing the evolution that happens within only 2 decades. Because of that the games industry is one of the most successful on this last years, in front of Movies and Music.

    What I don’t get are morons who look down on the older computer games, morons too stupid to understand their value. You show Pong to one of them and they’ll say “That’s pathetic. You think that was fun?” yet there weren’t even home computers at the time.

    It’s as stupid as rappers who spit on the music of Chuck Berry and Motown. We didn’t get to where we are in one step.

    Really a great screenshot walkthough.

    I really missed Lucas Arts games or Sierra Games, Stunts and Ultima VII. But I also congratulate you for including Civilization I and Wolfenstein 3D.

    c’mon, this is bullshit!
    it’s not in a chronological order and it lacks too much.

    - Dave
    - Prince of Persia
    - Dual
    - Moonbug

    Вообще, когда видишь такое, посещает мысль, а ведь это ж так просто, ну почему я это не смог придумать Респект автору :)

  25. gazz August 1, 2009 at 11:50 am #

    its great and all, but where is the information that actually helps us with the evolution of games, and would help a hell of alot if it was in chronological order. i mean, i see ssb’s after mgs4 and cod4. but otherwise, good choice of games to demonstrate.

    i like the hotties at the bottom of the page and the look of all those games
