One of the biggest selling points for video games, growing up, were the graphics. Me and my family members were always blown away by impressive visuals.
The problem with graphics is that the initial "wow" factor of seeing them after a while, dissipated. All it took was for a new game to come out with more improved visuals that made what you once admired looked lame in comparison.
Case in point, I present to you the commercial for High Heat Baseball featuring the inimitable Sammy Sosa.
