I am not going to watch the video. But in the thumbnail, I prefer the 1996 version. on 14 Feb 2024 14:46 collapse

That’s just nostalgia glasses imo

I just watched the video and people would have gone nuts over the improved graphics in 1996. The other commenter is right that the thumbnail doesn’t do it justice on 14 Feb 2024 15:33 next collapse

Thanks. I followed your suggestion and watched the video. It is indeed a great improvement. Too bad the youtuber made a poor thumbnail. on 14 Feb 2024 16:19 collapse

Pretty interesting stuff! on 14 Feb 2024 22:00 collapse

Do they compare other games beyond Super Mario 64? Because just looking at a launch game won’t tell you what the console can do on 14 Feb 2024 22:09 collapse

The video was just about SM64. I haven’t seen the video creator before so I’m not sure if he does other games.

Some of it was a bit over my head but I think he implemented a 3d driver (?) that came later in n64’s development which allowed for more polygons and stuff.

Either way, it was in no way an admonishment of the console! He’s a fan demonstrating what the console was capable of, not dunking on how SM64 could have been better on 14 Feb 2024 14:25 next collapse

The thumbnail is misleading. This looks crazy good in motion. on 15 Feb 2024 10:16 collapse
