    The comparisons went by pretty quick. Perhaps keep them on a bit longer and zoom in on parts of the video which highlight the differences in the lighting? Otherwise, I found the video very informative and helpful. I have a reasonable idea now of what Ambient Occlusion is.

    Somehow, I missed this turning point in the history of videogame graphics. I've heard the 'Can It Run Crysis ?' joke for years, but never knew that game was so revolutionary.

    I still have no idea what AO is after watching this.
