Road Rash for the 3DO console touted the object in the game being photorealistic. That came out in '94 I think.

hey, it looked real when it came out. of course, it looks bad when compared to the things we have now. and the games we have now will look like crap in the future.

I think they were called FMV games, full motion video. Tomcat Alley was sweet.

Heh, I remember Tomcat Alley. Not much of a game, but it was impressive anyway. Kinda like a really simplistic point-and-click shooter.

I must say though, that smoke does look very nice...what game is that from? I don't remember seeing anything like that in Call of Duty or RTCW...
