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.
