    Heh, seemed like many of the last parts of the sequences were cutscenes (like of Battlefield 2) and looked ungodly realistic. =D Wonder if that counts.

    It would have been better had they used in game footage of the more recent titles. Sure, it shows the progress of graphics, but the others were more focused on gameplay. And that Killzone one wasn`t in game footage, even though it looked like it.

    Excellent! Very nostalgic. I still have just as much fun playing Donkey Kong as I do playing Fable.

    However, in terms of evolution, the video game industry has done very little to correctly target women. I`d like to see some evolution in that area. :o)

    For anyone who wants to try out some Classic Video Games.

    ^That was one of the Super Star Wars trilogy games on SNES, couldnt tell you which one. And the best game up there, to respond to the Mario 64 comment, was Doom, period. There has never been a shooter to improve on Doom, just games that came really damn close to being AS good. And most of the other games up there are actually very craptastic, of course disregarding the MUCH older games from the Atari and the like. I also wondered about RPGs, and why they did not have Tekken, Soul Calibur, or Mortal Kombat in fighting games, or any good REAL fighting game for that matter, but for some odd reason they had a clip of The Matrix: PON spliced in.

    They did skip a lot of games in each genre...but it was still pretty cool.

    It`s crazy how realistic some of the graphics are now, be they in-game or otherwise. I remember when the PS1 came out and everyone oohed and ahhed over it.

    I loved it but with all other genres but, how on earth they could have done the “evolution” of fighting games without putting Mortal Kombat in there. Mortal Kombat is one of if not the greatest fighting games ever.

    as always, I gotta say it.... Wolfenstein 3D wasn`t the first first person shooter, it was Catacomb Abyss. But since only a handful of people played Catacomb Abyss, all the books give Wolf3d credit for being the first.

    This is really cool. But no evolution of pong? I would have thought that would have been the most obvious one, what with the original pong, up to the new one on the Xbox 360 by Rockstar? Anyway, I really should play more first person shooters! This thing reminded me how cool they are. Call of Duty 3 and Red Steel on the Wii anyone?

    "Wolfenstein 3D wasn`t the first first person shooter, it was Catacomb Abyss."

    That game kicked ass, but I had no idea it was first.

    yeah, what`s with the cut scenes? that only has to do with eye candy and not video games... it`s kind of a cop-out.

    i prefer a lot of those games` older versions to their 3d counterparts, like for star wars game... the 2d platformer one was better... and for mario, none of those games have evolved to be better than each other... they`re all still soo much fun to play... i borrowed my friend`s original nintendo and played mario 3 for a while last year and was so into it just like i would`ve been back in the day... we haven`t really exceeded the entertainment value of 2d graphics, which is funny, since everything is all about the 3d graphics these days... as apposed to good ol` fun.

    If there is anything this clip did right, it was to NOT show Halo in it. Halo is not all that revolutionary, nor all that good, so it being out was an obvious choice....strange about Goldeneye not being there though.

    Why was the last game in each sequence an in-game cutscene in a PS3 game? That`s the evolution of videogames--that we watch them instead of play them?
