while the availability (or the lack of) of demos for consoles is true, interestingly computer owners had known them for ages. (like, I don't know ANY person that had a computer, no matter which system (since IBM PC wasn't the only option at that point), that didn't have lots of demos or shareware for it)

The pizza hut demo with metal gear was the beginning of my love affair with the series.

Demodiscs were great. Not only because of the games that were available to you but also the music in them.

I still remember when my dad brought home THPS2, with that fancy yellow cartridge. The foundry level in 2 will always be my favorite.

Wait what is this backing track? RebelTaxi uses it for his 'commercial breaks' and it's tripping me out... EDIT: Looked it up. Guess it's the Tony Hawk main menu music so that makes sense. Excuse my ignorance TH fans.

Biggest irony is that i had similar experience long long time ago, but with full game. Bought a console cartridge with collection of games on it, for one game, ended up eventually playing another one for insane amount of time. Dont remember what they were, but it was one of _those_ things.

You should do this again for the Playstation Picks disc the PSX launched with. The Wipeout demo was jaw dropping...

Escapist must be going broke. Letting creators go, hawking for cash. Sad.

Most professional youtubers do or have sponsored ads. So what’s the difference? They only let MovieBob go (to my knowledge) and because he creates a lot of toxicity and they’re trying to avoid that.

"Hawking" for cash. You mean, building a subscriber revenue based model instead of an ad-based revenue model that relies on luck and randomized algorithms. Oh, and it's almost like our content is released for free no matter how you support us...so, got any other dumb comments to make today?

I feel like video game demos are the best way to sell games through word of mouth. Shame most companies don't do that as much anymore.

@UnreasonableOpinions I guess that means that, for many players, they felt underwhelming.

Look at PT, people still see that as one of the greatest demos

You would think that, and for a long time they were. But as of the last ten years the data bears out making demons are a mistake. Not only are they pretty expensive in terms of costs and dev as you need to make a highly polished vertical slice, but games that release demos tend to sell slightly less after the demo comes out than if they don't make it at all. Spending a lot of dev time to sell less is a bad deal. In any case now that early access exists you get a similar effect but you don't have to make special demos and you can get paid for it.

I greatly enjoy how Marty expresses his thoughts, he crafts beautiful metaphors and similes. I bow my head to Mr. Sliva's literary talent and look forward to hearing / reading more!
