I also wish that cartridges would come back.
ROM cartridges allow for near-instant load times and use less of the processing power of the console, and they are hardier (though disks are becoming more difficult to damage, it seems).
Yeah, but a modern game would need to come on like five of them that you'd have to switch out for another every five screens (assuming that the retention time after a cartridge is taken out could be lengthened), wouldn't it?
