Technology is amazing.  Look at the cell phone you have in your pocket right now, and compare it to the bag phone you had to plug in to your car's cigarette lighter.  Much the same, it's amazing to compare what the early video games looked like to today's graphics.

Watch the progression of video games in under 3 minutes after the jump.

I grew up with Atari and Intellivision, playing games like Pong, Pac-Man and Pitfall.  In fact, I still have a working Atari 2600 hooked up to my TV right next to the Wii!  Watch how far video games have come in just a few seconds.
