    Little thing i made from boredom.

    A look back on how each of the Nintendo franchises have evolved from pixellated dots into todays high resolution graphics.

    Which character has had the best overhaul over the past years?
    Which the worst? (give you 3 guesses ¬_¬)
    Has the HD era really benefitted these gaming franchises?

    Discuss.

    Link, DK, and Samus are the best new era ones, Sonic was the best 16-bit one, but his current one sucks. Also, new Kirby sucks in comparison to olde Kirby. Mario... meh, hes okay.

    I'd Say Link, Mario, and DK.

    Especially when only looking at their starts and finishes.

    Seems like Kirby just got a resolution and color palette update for every iteration. Cute little bastard.

    The best change probably looks like Link. His design changed drastically throughout almost all his games.

    Kirby has the worst change (although he doesn't really need a change), his simple form stayed true his whole gaming career.
