<BEGIN RANT> I really wish they (the gaming industry) would stop producing games on multiple cd-roms and use DVD's instead. I hate swapping 4 discs during an install and I can't imagine I am alone in this. The more annoying thing to me is the industry putting a premium price on games printed on DVD that contain crap I'll never use. To be honest, I don't care about the following: 1) what the programmers look like 2) what the programmers look like making funny faces at the camera 3) sketch art for a spoon found on a non-descript table in the back of a level 4) sketch art period 5) demo for a game you know will suck which is why they include it on a big title DVD 6) anything that is on the DVD that is not part of the game itself or directly related to the game (ie: DirectX install, Adobe Reader for the PDF manual are all exceptable) This is a good rant about DVD vs CD over at Shacknews. Don't have a DVD-ROM? They are cheap and getting cheaper by the day... VD-Rom/sortby=priceA/popup1%5B%5D=10:355" target="_blank">PriceGrabber NewEgg I understand there are people/customers who will enjoy those various little treats on the DVD I mentioned above. That is perfectly fine and understandable, to each their own correct? I'm just sick of seeing DVD priced games with (what I consider) crap for $10 - $15 more than their 4+ CD-ROM counterpart on the gaming shelf. Wow, pretty early for a rant.... I need some coffee or a Dew. <END RANT>
