What happened to the good ol' days of installing the 3.5" diskette into the drive, running the 'deicing' .exe/installing the game, DL and installing the latest patch from a BBS, and running the game whenever and however the F&$K you wanted?

Damn, I am getting old. I may have to find another new hobby and start building train sets in my garage............


Yeah, I wouldn't really call those the GOOD old days. More like the 'really fucking annoying and shitty' old days.

I reinstalled Bioshock yesterday, sat there and watched the "auto-patcher" pretend to download the 1.1 patch, then not actually do it (despite sitting there for 30 minutes saying it was), forcing me to manually download the patch, and trying to figure out if I had the "international version" or the "english version" because it would be death to install the wrong patch and.... AARRRRGGGHHH.
