Modern graphics are great, but I still get wowed by Mode 7 effects in games. Like, this will never get old to me:

It’s just so interesting to see the clever ways in which people worked around hardware limitations back then to create stuff like this.

Had a Genesis when I was a kid, so this was one of the things that wowed me.

I remember going to Blockbuster every Friday trying to rent this, and it was checked out every time for several months. My mind was blown when I finally got to play it!

It's one of my favorite 2D platformers of all time -- if not my favorite!

Yoshi's Island is hands down the first (and often only) game that comes to mind when I think of a "perfect" video game. As a contemporary work, there's no better piece of 2D craft.

Cool tech on old hardware feels like magic, doesn’t it? Like… how did they do that during that time period?? Wizardry!

Exactly! I think that's why I love stuff like this in old games so much. It's incredible what they figured out all those years ago.
