It’s Just a Rock


(click to enlarge)

This is a rather cool collage that shows what one rock rendered in twenty one different games would look like. When I started at the top, I figured that it was a simple graphics comparison exercise, but as I moved down I realized it was far cool than that.

Yep, after FarCry, things start gettin’ weird, and by the end, in Mario World, the rocks are thoroughly adorable. It’s not so much a look at the evolution of graphics as it is a comparison of styles using something that would be likely to appear in all these games at some point.
