@storm_of_swords: "I hated the long loading screens on my Playstation and I loved that I didn't have to deal with long loading screens on my N64."
Load screens were weird when I 1st experience them but it was worth the wait as PS games were good.
"Also, cartridges have character and there is something that I just love about putting a cartridge in a console and feeling that click before powering it up; whereas discs are just boring."
Well good luck getting cartridges to work. The main flaw when I play old school is getting cartridges to work right away while a PS1 CD is a lesser problem.
