This annoys me, I pay more for games than you do - and i get a dvd sized box, while you canadians and amercans get a huge cool looking full sized game box.

grrrr

Actually thats been changed now, the boxes are alot smaller, about the size of DVD cases, and thats how I like it. The boxes were too big, took up alot of space. They are now packed neatly in one corner of my closet.

Hell I'd want a DVD case for my games, even less packaging. I even wrote a article about it, but never actually got it "published" on the site I was working for at the time.

[edit] Oh and I forgot to mention that all game boxes now are going to be that size, the industry finally decided on a standard. Thats a plus.

It just annoys me...
I remember back when they used to give you a full colour manual and sometimes even a toy/pack of cards/cloth map with your game!

I mean im paying like 3 times the amount a dvd costs - I want something more!
Whats next - plastic sleeves?

Thats what a few of my games CD cases were, (out of the box anyway) I was kinda annoyed with them and I even bought CD cases for them.
Although about the manuals, most of the games I have I don't even bother reading the manuals, and if I do it's usually because the game is complex or I'm just bored.

I can kinda relate to you about the cost thingy though, Americans pay about $50 for their games, I pay about $60+ for the same games, hell I'm buying the Warcraft III special edition version and thats going to cost me (tax included) $120. Thats alot of money to spend on a game, but hell, I'm more then dedicated enough to spend it.

I guess I can see where you are coming from, I mean you expect to get SOMETHING for that much money besides just the game. Although I personally don't care either way, if I have something extra it's nice.
