Infographics are always fun. It is even better when they are video game based. We found an interesting one recently that takes a look at the evolution of colors and their use in the gaming industry. It is hard to imagine a day when consoles were only capable of displaying 30-50 different colors back during the days of the original Nintendo and Sega systems. Modern consoles can do millions. Hell, there are even systems in the past that only handled 2 colors at a time, be it black and white or variable shades of green.

Take a look at the image below; you are bound to learn something new about the history of our beloved industry.
