Ah, the good ol’ days

26 Mar

Remember the days of video games that you bought in a box and had paper instruction manuals?  In some case, more than one disc?  Fortunately, this was on a DVD, so there was disc changing.  It’s the diamond edition of Neverwinter Nights from Bioware, and took me two minutes to punch in the serial code.

Mind you, I still have the original discs that have been quite badly scratched (thus, why I bought the diamond edition which has both expansion packs, Shadows of Undrentide and Hordes of the Underdark), but can you imagine swapping out discs to install a game now?  Especially when the current trend is to digitally purchase it and download it.  But I still have those discs, and the only way to play it now is to have a friend who might have an extra copy (such as me having two copies).



Along with all three of the original manuals.



And… apparently a Far Side book was tucked in next to them.



Light reading material for later, to be honest.

Ah, but forgive my brief nostalgia.  It brought back wonderful memories.
