    One diskette. The entire game is barely 1MB.

    Pretty amazing how efficient they programmed back then.

    That's impressive. I think doom2 was at least 2 and Prince of Persia was a bunch.

    I played the hell out of that arcade wrestling game, summer of '88.

    I'd go to the 7-11 around the corner that had it

    I used to hit the big button on that game so fast, I could beat the computer opponents in about 30 seconds. That is until about the 25th or so match when I was so tired I couldn't hit it so fast anymore.

    Those old sierra games would sometimes have fifteen 5.25" floppies or ten 3.5" floppies.

    ya that was getting crazy until cdrom became the norm.

    one game I had was 14 floppies.
    Took over an hour to install and decompress. (Star Trek Judgment Rites)

    I liked when there was 'copy protection' on a game which involved you needing to input information from the manual.

    Police Quest 2 would show you a mugshot and then you would have to look in the manual to find the guy's name.
