    Best games for ISO/mp3

    Hi, I've noticed people recently discussing the benefits of bin/cue against iso/mp3. Obviously bin/cue is preferred but not resonable for most people . . . or games. Some games don't even use CD tracks since the sound info is stored in the ISO. I think 'wheel of fortune' is this way. It...
