Actual floppy disk or the hard disk things?

Actual floppy disk.....I think it was Oregon trail or SimCity?

Hard disk thing.......either Dino Park Tycoon or SimCity 2000.


3 1/2" discs (the "hard" ones) count as floppies...in that they're not HDDs, and the inner magnetic material was a lot like cellophane. So, you know, floppy.

In fact there were 3 different kinds of floppies...I was familiar with the 3 1/2" and 5 1/4" variations, but once upon a time there were 8 inch floppies too.

They were both called floppies, although the later 3.5 inch ones had hard shells, which is probably what you're referring to

Heroes of Might and Magic 3. Pretty sure it was an unauthorised copy, but it was still amazing.

man, it was some educational game or something with a bunny on the disk. I barely remember and I'm going to spend an uncomfortable time looking for what it was was. Thanks tc.

*edit* awww yeah thanks google, it was reader rabbit.

Why do tv comedies have laugh tracks but movie comedies don't?

I've probably just touched 2-3 floppy discs in my life and they weren't even game floppies.

Not the best, but the 2nd best.

It was probably Stunts because I loved that game (and still think about it occasionally).
