Whats more satisfying? Inserting a cartridge into a console like a genesis or n64, or inserting a disc into something like a Playstation or Saturn?
The Gameboy Player has the best eject on a console I've ever felt.
At the cost of the worst digital pad in history. Seriously that shit was vestigial.
>You could play fucking soccer with a cartridge as a kid and that fucker would still work just fine if you just shook it off a wee bit afterwards
And you could play Frisbee with a CD and as long as it did not end up with pieces chipped off, it would most likely work. I have a Saturn CD that has a crack in the inner ring that spans across half the disc; and it is still read fine in the console.
So sad that minidisc was outdone so soon by mass availability of HDD and Flash memory. Fucking ipods.
I've been wishing for them to bring back minidiscs with blu-ray capacity for so long, but it'll never happen.
>tfw the sound of cartridges clacking together as you handle a big pile of them
It depends on your tastes sonny.
Cartridges have that sexy, firm hunk of
plasticyou know you can rely on, you know they can take some strain and live with it.
They're solid, come in with either round or straight angles and edges, which is a plus if you like variety.
Putting them inis satisfying because you just need to firmly J-J-J-Jam them inand you feel that tight response from the console which is ever so good, that clack sound is pretty damn sexy too even after all these years, me and your momstill remember all those nights we spent putting cartridges in and out, in and out no stop.
CDs though, oh boy.
CDs have the charm of a
virgin girl at her first night, they're frail, cute and you need to be gentle with them, like real gentle, you need to take care of them too, they're like one of those frail but gentle girls in your chinese cartoons.
Once you look at their
behindthough...no cartridges can compare with that shining butt, and the variety of colours on that, simply astounding.
Their central hole is very titillating too and that soft click when you
put them in, MMMMHHHHHHH...
But again sonny, it all comes down to personal tastes and
deviancies, when you'll grow up you'll understand.
Inserting a cartridge is much more satisfying then placing a CD on a tray.
On certain systems/computers, opening/closing the actual CD tray is just as much if not more satisfying.
Don't even get me started on the sound certain machines make when reading disks.
why the fuck would you want that? high capacity low cost flash has been what people were dreaming of for decades. I guess you are one of those "wrong generation" kids fetishizing technology you didn't have to suffer through.
Does anybody remember the early CD rom drives? I had one for my apple iigs and the cd's came in a floppy type case like mini discs. I always wondered why nobody kept doing it. Basically permanent disc protection.
CD caddies were amazing, I made a thread about them on /g/ recently and plenty of people have nostalgia for them. I seriously wish that at least one company would make a modern one with dvd/br support. I'd use the shit out of it.
I bet the most satisfying insertion has got to be Neo Geo carts. They're so big and they have that double PCB going on. Thick, solid, tight connection. Probably feels orgasmic putting one of those in.
>I seriously wish that at least one company would make a modern one with dvd/br support
Didn't you still need to take them out of the caddie? Or am I thinking of clamshells?
Because CD's, DVD's and BD's all have the same size and design.
