The evolution of collecting…

The evolution of how we got to get our games.

From typing them in; loading from a humble cassette; the luxury of a 5.25″ floppy disk; the big box beauty of the Amiga days to the speed of cartridges; the storage of DVD and Bluray and now to downloading a bunch of 1′s and 0′s.
I can’t collect 1′s and 0′s – It might bring a wry smile to my Wife’s face but it sure saddens me to think that one day I’ll have nothing to put in my loft :(

  1. Downloaded games can never be compared to the physical editions. I’ve got several games on Steam for example, but in some ways they aren’t really part of my collection. The games are there, but they are only virtual if you know what I mean.

    Monkey Island and Another World.. yum, yum!
