The last time I recall new graphics blowing my mind was probably with the pre-rendered era: Donkey Kong Country, Myst, FF7, and Resident Evil 2.

N64/PSX to Dreamcast was probably the last jump I really cared about. The jump from Dreamcast/PS2 to Wii/PS3 was not even close to as impressive. The main problem with older generations is that they don’t always translate well over to more recent screen ratios and resolutions. But other than that, I don’t see as substantial a difference between games of  2001 and 2020 as I did between 1988 and 1992, or 1992 and 1996c or 1998 and 2001. Those were all gigantic leaps, that doesn’t happen any longer.

Not a gigantic leap? Really?

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)
