In 1989, the first Sierra game I ever played, Space Quest III, shipped on six 5.25-inch double-density, double-sided floppy disks.

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Fear of AI and robotics is fairly common in humans. There have been ample predictions about how the robot/AI revolution will destroy an enormous number of jobs, while potentially posing an existential risk to the long-term survival of the human race.
