I used to play civilization 1 on my 386 a LOT. It had 1MB ram, 20mhz processor, 40M harddrive and something I could not believe was true - a modem! I think it was a 2400 baud modem and could download 1M/h. I used it to play ZombieMUD :)

 

Any bigger games took several disks and when one disk is 1.44M I had to be carefull what to install and when. I would immediately run out of space :)

Anyway, even today those 3.5" disks are large enough. Most classic games, W3D, Doom, TTDX, fitted on a few disks. Good old times indeed.

 

And even today all my results of my graduation project still fitted on a single 1.44MB disk.
