CDs have to be stopped! 
22nd-Jul-2006 02:22 pm
I'm so sick of opening newly purchased game boxes to find cheaply wrapped stacks of 5 to 6 CDs! Why are they still doing this?! It is totally ridiculous to think that people's main format for video games and software should be 5 to 6 CDs! Takes forever to install, more crap to keep track of, blah blah blah. I'm sorry, but if you don't have a dvd drive by now, you might be a cheap ass. Get a friggen DVD drive so we all can go back to single CD installs. That and so I don't have to carry around 3 120 capacity CD cases whenever I move my computer. I tell you, it's like reading the physicians section of the phone book to get to the Pizza section. My CD folder is exactly like that, 3 pages of Far Cry, 7 pages of Unreal-UT2004. By the time I'm done flipping I don't even want to play anymore! ::changes to disc three:: OH NOW IT WANTS DISC TWO! EAT CRAP!

I think a lot of that has to do with the price to manufacutre CD's vs DVD's. Stupid production companies trying to make an extra few cents. That's another reason I'm not too happy with blu-ray. Even if Blu-Ray catches on well, I would see games coming out on several DVD's before they came out on one blu-ray. At the speed cable and dsl speeds are climbing I could almost see people downloading games as opposed to buying them at the store. Of course, lord knows some dufus software company is going to find a rediculous way to use 60GB of data...
