Something old, something new.
Twitter is currently riding the “How It Started/How It’s Going” picture trend. Basically, someone posts a picture of their younger self and their current self side-by-side, mostly to show how successful they’ve been or how much they’ve changed for the better.
It’s arguably a humblebrag ploy for people with low self-esteem, but to each their own. But that isn’t stopping our industry & culture from participating, right?
Video game companies and devs are jumping in on this bandwagon, usually with hilarious(?) results. Here are a few we’ve spotted from official gaming accounts:
