That was actually double sided, double density, not low density. I think (because I never used single density), double sided, single density was 360kb.

I know the 3" non standard disks used on Amstrad type computers was around 180kb per side. Which seems to about match that though. I used those.

Doom came on a bunch of floppies.

Also DVD drive adoption came just about when digital distribution was taking off. Most games came on CD even up through the end, although some came on both. CD games would have multiple discs, up to and including a separate "play" disc (a form of DRM).
