An obviously well loved copy of Marathon.

    Oh, CD-ROM copy? Nice. I need to post some shots of the original floppy version I picked up recently! It's in very good condition all around, pretty much like it's straight from the store!

    I’d love to see the floppy edition.

    I'll take some shots soon! I actually just picked up Marathon 2 as well, although it's not in quite as good condition as my Marathon 1 box. Still, I'll have to do some nice photos of these soon as there don't seem to be any good shots that I can find on Flickr!

    Vintage software packaging photography is a lost art.

    Absolutely. I've realized something about games in general. They are no longer the "wild west". That's why games and everything related to them was so creative and seemingly "lawless" - everything was so new and it was normal to see drastically different things from game to game. Now that innovation is slowing down and games at their current level have been around for a while, people are building a sense of history with games, and the games are automatically becoming more derivative and formulaic, designed to fit within accepted norms established by the past couple decades of games. Try and find a 2012 game that isn't extremely similar to something that we already saw 10-15 years ago... As someone who's been a lifelong gamer, I find it pretty depressing really. I look at my stacks of latest games and they are all just a plain old DVD case, or perhaps the occasional "small box" which houses a DVD case and a few-page "readme + quickstart instructions" pamphlet.

    The same can be said for software (or accessory) packaging in general.

    We used to play Marathon when my boss teaching on Thursday afternoon. We sent death notes to co-worker before game to get into the mode! It was really really good network office game!

    So many memories.

    I think someone had memories of chewing on this one.
