Pixels vs. Pores: Lowest and Highest Fidelity Character Depictions

Here's Princess Tomato on the PC-88:

And now here she is in Super Bomberman R:

@“Syzygy”#p35966 Well, based on google image searching “princess tomato,” we didn‘t take away all of the tomato boobs, that’s for sure

I just remembered that King of Fighters ‘96 was on Game Boy, so here’s another – your boy Terry Bogard

And still sporting pretty much the same stance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

If nothing else, we can thank SoPFFO for this:

Maybe cheating due to system constraints, but a bit of a glow up, for sure.

Along the same lines,



Is there anything more lo fi than a pixel?


@“Gaagaagiins”#p36054 Is there anything more lo fi than a pixel?

I was going to make a *Zork* entry until I learned the remake was still in first person.

@“Syzygy”#p36066 Arguably: an oscilloscope wave

We need a AAAA remaster of _Tennis for Two_


@“Syzygy”#p36108 Reminds me of this, which is classy and I’d like it for a lark except it’s $130 and the added effects cause input lag (?!)

Now there's a sort of particular expression of [luxury gaming](https://forums.insertcredit.com/d/872-luxury-gaming)!

@“Syzygy”#p36108 that is such an odd idea. How do you fuck up Pong as Atari? Its beautiful and I get the Tetris effect style idea, but man. That’s rough

Edit: but also perfect for this thread, that’s the most hilarious HIFI vs LOFI example

Hm. The proposition of a Pong ball rolling around on a hard surface makes me feel strange. To me, that ball has always been floating through empty space.

Breaking the stated rules of this thread in most conceivable ways, but it's my thread so I can do what I want, fool:

I fell down something of a KOF wiki rabbit hole following the most recent episode and discovered this adorable Leona sprite from a webcomic/RPG (I guess? I wasn't previously familiar with it) called Nariyuki Quest. Here it is vs the KOF XV model–pretty amazing how it captures all of the salient details:

@“kory”#p36175 I'm not young anymore but I would have liked to thrown my life away playing that A-Team lcd handheld.

Probably lots of these out there now since all the indie game characters had that big indie orgy a few years ago.
