It's not 'the whole bundle' - there are games missing.

There's no Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, no Bureaucracy, no Shogun, no Nord and Bert, no Beyond Zork, no Zork Zero, no Sherlock: Riddle of the Crown Jewels, no Arthur, and no Journey.

Zork Zero, Arthur, and Journey have graphical components, so I suppose I can understand leaving those out, and Shogun wasn't even officially included in Lost Treasures of Infocom I and II due to licensing issues, and I suppose that might be the problem with Hitchhiker's and Bureaucracy, but what the heck could keep them from including Nord and Bert Couldn't Make Head Or Tail Of It?

Hitchhiker's was a great game, too. Missing that one's a real bummer.
