Thebitbag: "It's not unlike me to flip through old gaming magazines strictly for the nostalgia. Yesterday was no different when I picked up an issue of Tips and Tricks published back in 2000. If you do the math, that's a decade ago. The more things change the more they stay the same unfortunately.
There was one particular article written by Ara Shirinian that compared the graphics of Dead or Alive 2 on Dreamcast and Playstation 2. The article was written to illustrate how minute details in graphics really wouldn't matter in the future because eventually graphics would be so advanced that gameplay would take precedence. When Ara ended the article by saying, "If one year and 100 MHz (among many other improvements) gives us graphics enhancements this minute, developers may have to actually focus on gameplay and interaction to grab our attention," it really grabbed my attention. No pun intended. It also, got me thinking about Bayonetta on PS3."
