The Evolution of Even More Video Games: A Gallery

I’ll bet many of you didn’t know that The Elder Scrolls has been around for nearly twenty years already.  That’s right kids.  Back in 1994 there was version of Elder Scrolls called Arena.  Then there was The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall.  It goes on and on an on to what we now know as Skyrim.  But it doesn’t stop there.

We have awesome pictures from a number of different games to see how they evolved.  Games included in this gallery are FIFA Soccer, Max Payne, Far Cry, Twisted Metal, and Assassin’s Creed.

Check out their evolution after the jump….

  1. Oh man, I sank a TON of time into Daggerfall.

    I stopped playing when all the missions started repeating themselves. You’d get a new mission but when you went to the location it would be exactly the same as an earlier mission.

  2. The format for this is so messy. Yeah, let’s have a row with Skyrim and put two Fifa games right next to it.

    While we’re at it, let’s examine the evolution of Assassin’s Creed, since all three games are from the same console generation, and have been released within 5 years of each other, with minimal graphical upgrades.

  3. Edit, my mistake on Assassin’s Creed. 5 games in 6 years.

    We might as well examine the evolution of Call of Duty, from the first Modern Warfare up to Black Ops 2.

  4. Your Morrowind screenshot is actually from a pre-release development build. Retail version had a more polished HUD, and they had to change the layout of the city that shot was taken in, due to poor framerates on the original XBox and on PCs of that vintage (Later on, PC modders were able to restore that original design vision as the hardware advanced).
