Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I'm buying an old Apple IIc off of Craigslist and I was wondering if anyone knew a decent place to buy the old games for it other than Ebay. Thanks!

    I know that. I'm trying to figure out where to buy used copies.

    Offhand, my best suggestion would be to check locally-owned computer/game stores and places like Goodwill or Savers.

    I saw a C64 chess game at Goodwill the other day.

    You'd be surprised. Floppy disks can last a long time.

    And I wouldn't be surprised if there are places that have unused blank disks in warehouses somewhere.

    I just bought this from Ebay a few minutes ago. Time for some nostalgia gaming.

    You would be very surprised, most games have to be knocking back about 17 years now and the life-span on most floppy discs is about 10 years.

    Wow, not bad.

    I never really had a PC other than IBM-compatibles, though.

    I've used and seen people use 20 year old floppies on a regular basis. Are ya done talkin' about things you have no idea about yet?
