    I'm an old timer - I started my console gaming with pong, way back in the day, when the Atari 2600 came out, I got one. I played on that thing for hours on end. As I was commuting to work this morning, I was thinking about my favorite game - Adventure, and how times have changed. I was playing Skyrim last night both games are similar in nature, i.e., dragons.

    So much as changed

    Indeed. Although I doubt that the amount of enjoyment, if one could measure that, has changed at all. Kinda funny.

    I think it’s amazing to see the evolution of consoles and how they have changed dramatically over the course of 20 years. When I grew up in our household, we also had an Atari and Now there are XBOX One X consoles that are vapor cooled, Which are usually found in server rooms or for high end graphic cards. Especially if you have a 4K/HDR TV, it’s fairly astonishing to see even the technological changes in graphics from all those years ago.
