Can you install Aracde games that have made it onto a retail disc?

I was thinking about getting Limbo retail version release, but only if I can install it to the harddrive.

Surely it's like any other disc? You can install the whole thing to HDD, and you will still need the disc to run it.

I've heard some say arcade games on a disc can't be installed.

I didn't see any way to do it with the Deadliest Warrior collection disk I have.

Can Limbo and those two other games that come with it be installed?

Well? I wanna know before I buy.

I have a few early arcade compilation discs and you CANNOT install them. I'm not sure about the Limbo/Trials/Splosion or newer compilations though.

What is the big deal about installing it anyway?

To keep the disc drive from spinning?
