this past weekend, little_nerdxo and i went to casa loma. i was busy snapping pictures with my big, bulky SLR camera. out of nowhere, i heard the unmistakeable ‘click’ of a camera. while i very briefly worried i had been followed by the paparazzi, i was relieved to see that it was only some kid with a nintendo DS. i was actually seeing a current DS in the wild – and i was miffed.
‘wow. in my day, we used film. in an actual camera,’ i harumphed.
‘can’t beat progress,’ shrugged little_nerdxo. ‘look at you dorking out with your stupid smartphone camera. and all the stuff you can do with your SLR.’
both of these were things i already knew to be true. but it was something i needed to hear again. she was right. you CAN’T beat progress. it got me thinking about nintendo’s long and glorious history. so, without further ado, i present an infographic i found.
hard to believe nintendo has come such a long way, eh? this graphic takes a look at both the past and present successes of nintendo. it also stacks up their present glory against most other systems.
