… over the past 40* or so years, basically in the time I’ve been alive, are really quite impressive when you stop long enough to think about it:
I sit down some evenings and play a video game with anywhere between 4 and 1,400 strangers — depending on the game — at the same time. Most of whom are literally tens to hundreds of miles from my home and even, occasionally, on the other side of the planet. Not to mention the obvious improvement in graphics as shown above. It’s been a long time since I had to wait for a friend to come over just to play a game on the old Atari 2600 together.
