Just like every other mature industry and technology, gaming industry has evolved big time after the start of the 21st century. Long gone are those days when way back in 1972, the first generation of video game consoles started with the Magnavox Odyssey, and the newly fitting gamers enjoyed their day sitting next to some black and white TV and sliding into the other worlds. Now, a game is not considered something of quality if it runs at any lower than HD resolution. But have you ever wondered, what would some modern triple A top quality titles such as Watch Dogs, GTA V, Saints Row 3 and Soul Calibur 5 would look like if played on 1973 black and white TV? Well, wonder no more now.
