ROM Cartridges (or Read-only Memory cartridges) were a very common form of media distribution for game consoles (and to a lesser extent, PCs) until the sixth generation, when optical media had been adopted fully into all mainstream game consoles; nowadays, only handhelds and some hybrid systems (such as the Nintendo Switch) use ROM cartridges.

Despite the various forms they have taken over the decades, all ROM cartridges work similarly; they are inserted into a slot where the game system reads the data off of it in order to obtain game data, which is then ran by the console; any save-data generated from play is usually saved either an external device that is attached to the console or in the same cartridge, albeit in a different physical place.
