I think most or all of them are Windows format. Haven't played any of them in many years; they've been sitting in a cupboard. I'm now getting ready to move and need to clean out some of this stuff. Anyone interested in buying them, or should I try my luck on Ebay?

    I don't think that's gonna happen. They were apparently offended by the word "fuck" above. And, I would think, they'll be offended by this message as well.

    I took a few snaps of a few places I stash my games.


    Some of those games I've picked up in jewel cases or previously discarded the boxes. A handful of these came with computers purchased from co-workers of my parents up til around 2000. I still love those 486 machines that have long since gone.


    Some of my games on a cart. There's a second layer of games behind them that I don't feel like moving around. The G3 is running OS-9 and have been thinking about moving it into the office since it doesn't have wireless and don't feel like setting up proxies at the moment as that requires having an AP up and cross over just for the G3 access.


    Some on-hand action there.


    Old applications, operating system install disks, odd drivers, educational programs like Peppers Adventure in Time, some games like Best of MS Entertainment (Chip's Challenge, SkiFree, JezzBall, ect.) & Oregon Trail, and some old misc disks that most likely have old class projects.


    Some of the larger, odd shaped boxes that don't easily fit anywhere.


    Some of the more modern games and classic collection's like C&C Decade and Taito Legends. At least they fit close to the size of a DVD case.

    Hi! Yes. I've still got lots of DOS games, and I still think that many of them are far better than newer games today. I'm an Adventure game nut so that's what I play and collect.
