Ratchet & Clank comparison reminds us how far games have come

Ratchet & Clank are getting ready to make the jump to PlayStation 4 in spring 2016. The team at Insomniac is going back and remaking the original from scratch, giving an opportunity for fans of the series to simultaneously be nostalgic and to experience something new.

If you’re in doubt that Ratchet & Clank is indeed something new, the comparison video above does a great job showing us just how far things have come. The environments presented in the new Ratchet &¬†Clank do indeed resemble those of the original, but it’s the difference between a beginner’s crayon drawing and the work of an accomplished artist.

When I think about older games, my brain does a good job of filling in the blanks the original graphics left, and I’m always surprised to go back and look at just how comparatively primitive things looked.

Ratchet & Clank is coming to PlayStation 4 this spring, and we can’t wait to check it out.
