Question
I was just wondering  why does  newer  video games have  more pixels then older video games? Also how did the technology change from the 80s to now? Which video game company is the best at making video games? I am asking these questions to you because it is for my school science fair project

Answer
The games have more pixels now bc of the increase in memory packaging devices. Original games only had 8mb of memory. Games today have several gigabytes. This also has to do with the increase technology of the game systems. There is no particular single company that makes the best games.

Expertise

I can answer any gaming questions you have from the NES to the PS3. I know about all the original games through the current games that are on the market today. I own/played most games that are worth playing at some point in my life. Whether its a question about how to beat a boss or a level, or just where to find some items in a game, or just want to know my opinion, I am very helpful. I excel in a few series including: Mario, Zelda, Final Fantasy, and Metal Gear Solid. I have played every installment of those particular series.

Experience

I have been playing video games since I was around 6 years old and I am currently 21. My two older brothers brought me up in the world of gaming and I never left. I was fortunate enough to be gifted with all of their old games so I have a knowledge of the old systems as well as the new. I am an Active Duty Soldier in the US Army so if my timely response is a little low I might not have service.
