What is the last PC program/game you bought that came on floppies?

Oh jeez. Now you're really making me think back. Blake Stone, perhaps. I'm not sure. I think I bought it from EB Games in the early 2000s.

Legacy of Kain.

I have a copy BNIB sitting in storage.

I had a less than legal copy of Tomb Raider on like 22 3.5" floppies. The last game I bought? Probably one of the Sierra games. Space Quest 4? Willy Beamish? Maybe the VGA remake of Space Quest? It's hard to pinpoint. I had a CD-ROM pretty earlier on.

I think Win 98 was it for me.


You bought Windows 98 on floppies? What was it 100 disks?


Windows 98 didn't have a floppy disk version. That would be so costly to MS to do that and not worth it to anyone.


It had a full retail as well as upgrade version on 3.5 floppies.

I'll be damned...

I never knew Windows 98 was less than 100MB...

Windows 95. :p

I used floppies to take games from my friends though.

I remember the time when I got Duke Nukem 3D from my friend on 11 floppies...

It was a fun time. Not so fun when one of those floppies got corrupted, and I had to copy all 11 floppies again.

Wow. Ummmm... lemme think...

I believe it would be Ultima V, but it's been many a year since I've even had a PC with a floppy drive, let alone used one.
