    Hey SpaceFlea. Do you recall which games? I'm sure it's hard to remember.

    Tripredacus thinks early releases might not have always had them. Maybe the bricks came later as Sega realized CD's were getting damaged?

    I recently opened a sealed Ecco the Dolphin and it did not have a foam brick. I'm thinking it was re-sealed and not factory.
    The first Sega CD game I bought in one of the "new" gigantic plastic cases back in 1993 was Ecco the Dolphin. Mine didn't come with a foam brick either.

    No they did not all come with that foam brick. I had a few new games for my system years ago that didn't have them.

    Wonder Dog came in a cardboard box, with a plain CD jewel case.

    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    PSX longbox games often came with a foam insert, in my limited experience, if only to keep the manual from flopping around. Never had any new Sega disc games.

    All of the new even BTD used PlayStation longbox (both the plasic and cardboard ones) games I picked up had foam blocks in them and wasn't just to keep the manual but was very much needed to hold the disk in place.

    Just recently I picked-up a sealed Road Rash for the Sega CD. So I added it to my 'breaking the seal' video.

    This actually had some stuff packed in it.

    I say this too (well, just Mega Foam) but it does fit the name scheme


    I want to say I've had a couple of games that I bought new that did not have foam, but the are few and far between. Almost all of them have them from my memory.

    I remember someone talking about retailers complaining to Sega about loose discs so they added them in quite early on and then continued with it through the Saturn. As someone else mentioned there are different thicknesses that were used for when there were multiple discs and this is also true. Dragon Force also had a brick that was less thick since the manual was so large.

    Not all of them had the mega foam. Early games like Final Fight, Prince of Persia, Blackhole Assault, Night Trap, Cobra Command, and Road Avenger came in flimsy cardboard boxes with regular CD jewel cases and instruction manuals. The easily breakable plastic long boxes had them (not all).
