As NFL legend Tom Brady announces his retirement, there will be plenty of farewell wishes from across the league.
Most players in the NFL only know of a league with Brady in it.
He has spent the last 23 seasons of his career as a part of the NFL, and that is longer than some players have been on Earth.
But, there is nothing that quite shows the longevity of Brady like video game graphics.
Over the past 23 years, Brady has been featured in many types of video games.
But, the difference in quality from one game to the next is astounding.

It is hard to imagine that there was a time when the graphics on the left existed.
You cannot even tell who the player is as the quality is too poor.
But, looking at the newest version of Brady in the Madden video game, it is almost an exact match.
Across his 23-year career, Brady was able to win seven Super Bowls, three league MVPs, and was named to the Pro Bowl 15 times.
No player has ever or most likely will ever have the success that Brady had in the NFL.
Despite being 45 years old, it felt like Brady could play another two or three seasons.
Most of the talk around the league was that he would leave Tampa Bay but continue his playing career.
He retired once before, then came back, but it seems like this time is final.
The longevity that Brady showed is something that is rarely seen in sports these days.
The chances are quite good NFL fans will never see another player like him again.NEXT: Jimmy Garoppolo Now Stands Alone In Active History
