The Evolution Of Real Time PC Graphics (2000-2013)

Compiled by Youtube user PerfectHand, this video features about 13 years worth of Nvidia graphic demos, benchmarks and in game demos from the period at full setting. Starting off with Nvidia's Grove and ending on benchmakrs like Platige Image's Catzilla, this video shows just how far we've come in just over a decade.

My only qualm with these graphic demos is that they've lead to about a decade worth of false expectations for most gamers, especially considering that the practice of benchmarking lead companies to misleading practices like creating 'gameplay target videos,' with the final product being inevitably inferior.  Let's hope that companies have learned for their mistakes int he last few generaations regarding setting false expectations.
