Also, dare I say I'm the kind of person who rents before he buys, so of the last of the last Dreamcast games, I do have CD-R versions as well, it's just when somebody has an AOL e-mail address, I feel as if I'm being blindfolded, covered in blood and dropped into a shark tank.
Also, for instance, I found a new local store that sells Dreamcast games, unplayed and used, and charges fair prices, so I picked up Slave Zero, 18 Wheeler American Pro Trucker, and Star Wars Episode 1 Racing. All three of those I had CD-Rs of, but when getting the actual product, the CD-Rs pale in comparison.
But then still, there are games for Dreamcast that can only be found on CD-R (unless somebody has a GD-ROM burner and lots of blank GD-Rs to give me) like the remixes (BGM) of Capcom vs. SNK 2, and Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and the "Beats of Rage" collections of homebrew games, or any homebrew games really
Oh, and one last thing, I'm not good with computers either. I'm pretty much Zentradi to computers as I am to automobiles.
But even still, there is wikipedia, a great source for info.
