Depending on your age, you may or may not know the world of DOS games. It was the early age of computer where the Intel Pentium was not even born yet. You were bombarded with technology such as Intel 80286 (or simply Intel-286) and Intel 80386 (or simply Intel-386). Computers were rarely shipped with memory more than 1-Megabyte, while disk space were merely in the region of tens of megabytes. Back then, gigabytes were unheard of.
