Actually the World Of Warcraft manual is pretty sturdy, being small paperback size.

But I do remember when game boxes were of a decent weight, and I remember when they began to become noticeably lighter, which was distressing. I think the last heavy game box I bought was Civ III Gold, that came with a nice big manual.
You know the very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don't alter their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views, which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering.

I simply loved and adored the Game Manuals in Baldur's Gate 1+2 as well as the Game Manual in Fallout. I have some older adventure games as well in which there also are big game manauls that spill the story behind the game's story. Very nice

Today, if I have the money for it, I always go for the Limited Edition or the Collector's Edition of a (pc) game since these seems to have big, nice & great manauls attached to them. I like the feeling of sliding my fingers over the frontpage of a wellcrafted manaul. You don't see this much anymore…
