From 8-bits to 16-bits: Video game characters show off a sexier figure

Bitmob Staff Writer Samir Torres: Back in the '80s I was perfectly happy with the 8-bit graphics of the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Sega Master System (SMS). Once I saw the improved visuals of the Genesis and Super Nintendo (SNES), though, it was hard to go back.

I selected 10 classic characters at random to show you how much nicer their sprites look thanks to the wider color palette of 16-bit consoles. (Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle, Culture, Ecco the Dolphin, Final Fantasy VI, Retro, Streets of Rage 2)
