Bill's Response to Matt Chat 29 on Wizardry and Follow-up Looking at Classic Computer Game Packaging

Since there are two videos this time, I'll just put some words here and show the two videos after the jump. The first video is my third and luckily working final one take attempt at a response to Matt Chat 29: Wizardry, Proving Grounds of Mad Overlord, where I showcase some of the packaging for a few of the Wizardry games. The second one take video is a direct follow-up to the first video that takes a look at classic computer game packaging of the late 1970's and very early 1980's, which were often housed in zip loc bags and/or cardboard folders. Check them out:

Console-Style Packaging for PC Games

New PC Package: IEMA's new look for PC game packaging.New PC Package: IEMA's new look for PC game packaging. Console gamers have seemingly always had it easy when shopping for games: The games for each console tend to come in very uniform, easily-identifiable boxes. PC gamers have seldom had such uniformity. Of course, here at AA, we consider the packages game come in a subject of no small significance. Nowadays, of course, most games come with little more than a small cardboard box and a CD-liner (most of us here can remember the shift from shelf-hogging large boxes to much smaller boxes just a few years ago). Well, now an organization called IEMA is trying to further standardize PC game boxes so that they can be identified as easily as games for consoles. You can read all about the new packaging in this PDF.
