Watch the history of videogame graphics from the perspective of a cube

The cube gets no respect. Well, until now. YouTube video producers The Hamster Alliance have edited together this wonderful montage of various videogames that feature the versatile cube. From Mario’s question block to the collapsing florescent walls of Super Hexagon, our four-sided friend has played a prominent role in many, many games. Perhaps this is because originally all games were made of pixels, so the shape has subconsciously established some cachet. Or maybe they’re just easier to render than circles. Either way.
