Nixian Channel Description:

We’re lifelong video game enthusiasts with a passion for showing the world how our favorite hobby has grown with us, from individual series to industry-wide retrospectives.

We put significant time and creative effort into each one of our videos, including research, digging into archives, recording voiceovers, and editing. Every video takes as many as 10 hours to produce, because we strive to give our fans consistent, high-quality content.

Our popular “Evolution of...” series goes far beyond simply presenting gameplay footage. We take the time to show how a video game property - its gameplay, character designs, graphics, sound direction, etc. - have evolved over time. We include unique voiceover work on each video to enhance the viewing experience.

People have been playing video games for decades. In that time, we’ve gone from moving a white line up and down to block a moving pixel, to participating in full-fledged, painstakingly rendered real-time battles with people all over the world. We help older gamers look back on how these experiences have changed throughout their lives, and new gamers to understand the broader context of the series they’re playing for the first time today.
The video game medium never stops growing, and we’ll never stop chronicling its evolution.
Editing and voice-over were made by me.

It’s strange how graphic quality varied in games back in the 2000’s. Some games such as NFS Underground were ahead of it’s time, then you had games that were not smooth at all.

It feels like NFS Most wanted games were always ahead of their time in terms of graphics (and also gameplay but I didn't play them all so can't say that for sure)

2000-2004 was the time games got big boot in graphics compared to previous years. 2016 City Car Driving seem to be a good simulation tool for learners.

That time was nostalgic, when there was no internet, and we used to share game with r friends with USB drive or CDs. Also when friends used to come at home to play that single game.

0:29 When a 31 year old game can show reflections in mirrors, but the re-remaster of GTA V on the most powerful consoles ever made, can't.

Oh, u missing Test Drive from C=64 (1998) , looks different like from atari, SID better sound, engine noise, and little bit better resolution. Also one sidein Test Drive II C=64, have pseudo 3Dmap; Mount cliff is looks like a 3D, and police can chase u, :) For ME its BIG missing in evolution between 1986 - 1989 ;) But i like u videos, very interesting to look in timelapse a Evolution any type of Game
