Real gamers used cassettes.
I never used them anyway.
Oh lol my father uses floppy disks but I do not care about that. I think they are outdated!
I don't think even indie games will fit on floppies these days.
And nothing of great value was lost.
There's SNES ROMs that don't fit on a floppy...
Where th hell am I gonna hide my pr0n now?
I still have a couple of my original Infocom games on 5 1/4" floppy....
Mind you, I haven't seen a computer with a 5 1/4" drive for many, many years now.
Way back in the early days, a box of 10 'single side double density' 5 1/4" floppies would set you back nearly $100. But they could hold something like 400kB on each one! And if you were crafty, you could punch out a little hole on the other side and use them as double-sided disks, and save a chunk of money!
I wonder if Floppy Disks will be collectible items years from now... Hmmm
All's I can say is it's about time, out with the old and in with the new.
...I thought they stopped making them years back
That would be good, I've got 30 sitting in my wardrobe.
And I have a lot. Still using them for quite a few things. Floppy discs FTW.
time to stock up before they are gone
I broke one of my teachers laptops with a floppy disc. It was great.
My bro actually records the cassettes to lossless audio, stores them on his digital media player, an plays them back to his spectrum, something along the line.
It really works.
Anyway, I myself am glad to see the death of the floppy disc.
It was one thing that the space was limited to 1.44mb, but the failure rate was awful.
They were painfully slow and easy to damage, and as a Secondary school student, occasionally had to use them to carry my word documents.
Floppies were nice to slice in half but unreliable for pretty much everything else however, they were revolutionary for their time.
Bought a Double Density (!) floppy pack some days ago for my Amiga.
I found an almost unused pack (only one floppy missing!) and bought it immediately
Even back in the day I always used Zip Disks. 100MB (or even the 250MB or 750MB ones) >> 1.44MB of space. Whats that now, two Word documents? Not even one PPT.
