Crates and Barrels

One response to “Crates and Barrels

  1. Dear readers of our blog may be asking themselves “why?” Why are there so many crates and barrels n videogames, specifically, as opposed to films and TV. Well there is a logical answer to that question. Crates and barrels are 3D geometric mathematical primitives known as cubes as cylinders. It takes a computer much less time to draw these objects than something more complex like a chair or lamp. In the medium of videogames, rendering efficiency of trivial objects such as these leaves more computing power to render the important character avatars, explosions, etc. As luck would have it, villains and superheroes like to hang out in places like abandoned factories where there are lots of crates and barrels.
