This is a spinoff of an offtopic discussion on another thread on here, which is more appropriate in this subforum. https://www.hometheaterforum.com/community/threads/a-quinn-martin-production.351359/page-20 Here are the relevant posts. I haven't been able to find much information about how common were pc games released on dvd-rom discs. For most of the pc games I was buying back in the day circa early->mid 2000s, they were mostly on cdrom discs. Stuff like the Grand Theft Auto 3, GTA Vice City, etc ... which didn't require any online code verfication. From anecdotal experiences of others on here, how widely used were dvd-rom discs used for boxed pc games before pc game downloads (ie. steam) were common? (ie. Where the actual discs had the game, and not a download program).
