If you're of a certain age like me you'll remember playing computer gams in the old days (on a C64 maybe) where you had to load the game up on a cassette player. It could take 15 minutes and involve turning the tape over or even more than one tape. There was a great turn based D-Day game (Crusade in Europe) as well simulators for a stealth bomber and an Apache attack helicopter. Things moved on and games loaded much faster. But now it seems we've gone full circle and we're back to long load times where you have to set it loading and then go off and do something else while it loads.
