Games with extra content on the disk when inserted into computer... Do you know any?

    Sometimes the developers of certain games put extra content on their video game's disk that can be downloaded onto ones computer. This bonus content could be in the form of exclusive wallpapers, music, and more! So, have any of you guys discovered or know of any bonus content like this? If so, please tell what it is and what game and system. (Please make sure the content is appropriate for a PG audience, since that is what the PokeGym allows) Thanks!

    Note: It is not necessary to tell of Dreamcast games that only have a music file about how it is a Dreamcast game and how it shouldn't be put in a Hi-Fi or regular CD player since so many of the games include this disclaimer.


    Here is the list that I know of so far (It will be regularly updated from new posts):


    Playstation:
    • RIDGE RACER [Full soundtrack]

    • [*]pong [Random noises and sounds of nature]


    Dreamcast:


    • SONIC ADVENTURE 2 [Multiple wallpapers of characters]
    • Web Browser 2.0 [Sega Swirl game for PC, Swirl related pics, and 3D Sonic wallpapers]

    Dude, the only kinds of games that ave bonus content are very old Playstation games. Now a days, its all about the game.

    The only reason your able to acess that stuff is because the games are written on CD-ROMS, but now a days games are written on more advanced CDs. Plus those things on the disk aren't just put their. Since your able to access your able to view. They aren't put their by the developers, they actually have never done that.

    Okay, Simple way to explain it. They don't put the bonus content on a disk on purpose.

    If you put Sonic CD in any CD player you can play the entire sound track.

    Also, wallpapers are not something that end up on a game disc by accident. Some of the extra content on old games was on purpose. Others were just a byproduct of not using any special encoding on a widely used media format.

    Okay, simple way to explain it: The King of Magikarps is wrong. Some, but not all, bonus content is on purpose.

    Yeah, there is no way that Sega Swirl, which specifically developed for the Windows OS, was by any means an accident.

    Not really. The major reason there isn't any more bonus content like that is that they've moved towards more proprietary formatting not because "it's all about the game" now. No point in putting that sort of bonus content on something a computer can't read.

    Soundtracks aren't games. ._.;
