Sure, discs are the complete end-all, be-all in a lot of ways. Games have gotten bigger since graduating from cartridges, and that's all well and fine. But there's just one thing we miss: the freedom to be completely unconcerned about how we treated our games. Don't worry -- most of the time, we're really careful. Games are sacred, after all. But it was nice when, in a moment of frustration, you could pop out a game and literally toss it aside. Also, scratches can cripple a disc, but the worst that ever happened with most of our original NES games was that we had to blow 'em out every now and then. It was a simpler time.
