WHAT’S THE MEANING?

Split-screen refers to a film or video technique in which the frame is divided into discrete non-overlapping images. It is used to define the technique in making films and television programs in which two different pieces of film are shown at the same time. When applied on a computer screen, it displays two different things in separate parts of the screen.

DID YOU KNOW?

The future doesn’t look too promising for split-screen video games. Are people giving up on split-screen video games forever? Back then, people used to huddle around a 20-40-inch square TV to play video games. Split-screen classics such as Goldeneye or Perfect Dark on the N64. If you played on Xbox, Halo: Combat Evolved featured a 4-player split-screen mechanic. It’s funny how split-screen games were some of the best and most popular games back in the day. But now, split-screen is dying. Take Overwatch for example. You would think that a cartoony, team-based shooter that’s perfect for a split-screen co-op game on console would have the feature, right? Well, it doesn’t. Yeah, you could sell the argument that games are more graphically demanding in today’s era. It sacrifices resolution and framerate, both of equal importance. But, don’t lose hope yet. Thanks to the Wii U with titles such as Smash Bros. and Mario Kart, there’s hope left. Both games allow multiplayer and both have split-screen. Same goes for Star Wars Battlefront which was a success. If these games can incorporate this almost foreign mechanic in today’s era, then other titles can do it too. Take the best games with split-screen on Steam as examples. Incredible video games deserve incredible player experiences. Split-screen must live.
