History of Water in Video Games

Some time ago News 4 Gamers posted a video documenting the history of water in video games. Technical and visual style have evolved hand-in-hand, and it is a great nostalgic trip to see how water has changed in 27 years.

  • that was pretty darned cool. i didn’t recognize maybe 3 of the games.. the wave racer games really started pushing water with purpose for me. i like a pretty render as much as anyone else – don’t get me wrong. but it was the first game i saw where water dynamics were put to use as a play mechanic.
