Games using vector graphics

Vector graphics in video games refer to a type of graphical representation where images are defined using geometric shapes, lines, curves, and mathematical equations, rather than a fixed grid of pixels like in raster graphics. In vector graphics, the shapes are described by their properties, such as coordinates, sizes, colors, and gradients, rather than by individual pixels.

While vector graphics have many advantages, they also have limitations. They might not be suitable for all types of visual content, especially when high levels of detail and realism are required. Additionally, complex scenes with a large number of vector shapes can still pose performance challenges, as the mathematical calculations required for rendering can become demanding.
