Looking back at game demos and why games still need them

Many gamers first exposure to game demos such as Doom and Wolfenstein 3D were on the PC via the floppy disk. Throughout the last few gaming generation demos such as Resident Evil 4, Sonic Adventure, have been crucial in showing off what a console could do as well as giving gamers a chance to try to before they buy. Even though most demos these days are mostly download only, gamers and the industry still need them. (Doom, GameCube, PC, PS2, PS3, Resident Evil 4, Retro, Wolfenstein 3D, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Once demos started going beyond a gig download i got alot more selective on what i would try.

I love demos and always will. I don't have the money to buy every game, which is why I love trying them out then deciding if I want to buy them
