Here's your 'Bloat'. 1 mb of program + sound/video support DLL's. The equivalent of less than 2 amiga Floppy disks.

They certainly didn't pack as much BS in this game as you guys did in your posts...

Sounds like we hit a nerve. Must be the programmer.

Shadowfire, bloat does not necessarily suggest filling up media. Bloat can also mean symbolism over substance...

Bloated games can be fun. It's the game itself which you're supposed to play. But just because the software developer filled the CD with bloat to make it look bigger doesn't nescesarily mean that the game is good.

There are plenty of reading. This one also is interesting.

Thanks Minuous. I remember this article. My question was more like a wink. Just in case of Mr Joiner (Talin) tipped the balance to the "why not, at the end"...
