That's one way of looking at it. Back in 1980 when Space Invaders came
out the internet didn't exist, 3d graphics technology hadn't been
invented yet, and the Atari only had 2600 K memory. A game like DC
Universe Online simply would not have been possible on a system like that.
Now, we have the Play Station 3. Sony Entertainment has licensed the DC
Comic's characters from DC Comics and plans to release a masssive
multiplayer game called DC Universe Online soon. Do to the Play
Station's network based game play it is possible to basically join the
Justice League or the League of Doom and battle it out in places like
Matropolis, Gothom City, and so on. Such a massive roll playing game was
not possible 29 years ago, but it is possible now. Game developers have
taken advantage of the technological improvements, and therefore the
game industry has definitely evolved from its origins.
