Comments on 533GamesInThreeMeg: I agree entirely. Size limitations foster creativity :) Just look at [http://www.puppyos.net/blog/index.php?entry=entry070406-054029 Puppy Linux] . . .

I love the fact that you could get some quite enjoyable games to fit in a 4K rom (some of them were 1K and 2K as well I think?). Even top notch arcade games of the time like Defender didn’t top 128K.

I think when there are really tough limits, people get more creative

I agree entirely.

Size limitations foster creativity :) Just look at Puppy Linux vs. Vista for proof. Or french cuisine vs. American. Or old movies shot on stock film vs. the latest high-definition pap to come out of Hollywood. It’s all about quantity weakening quality, not adding to it.
