Who started the "no more instruction manuals, we're going green" trend?

funny how sidetracked this thread became with talk of the 90s economy, dollar values and debt.

Manuals for good games with good artwork were something to cherish. I mourn their loss but if anything, that just reinforces those old classic games as being collectible (not just a collection of wall junk) and actually worth something to many like minded people.

I weep for the current gen with all DDlds and digital manuals. Most games have become homogenized clones of brainless FPS and sequels so why not make the entire videogame experience the same, right? That's downright pitiful

As for the argument made for pro-capitalist tactics by big companies like EA under the guise of being "green" - i don't even want to go there. Companies cut production costs and don't care about consumers. And there are ppl here rationalizing and defending them. Sometimes i wish the Mayans were right.
