Question What should I do with these old-school (95-2000) CD-ROM games?

Lol, I recently found a box full of old Lucas Arts titles, Unreal Tournament, Half Life, the Original Worms and a few others. I too totally forgot about the A4 boxes!! How ridiculous...I ended up just binning most of them though.

My dad called me the other day to tell me he was planning on clearing out all games from the cupboard at their house. I soon nipped that in the bud.

I know for a fact that all the Sierra Adventure collections and a few Ultima games are there (with cloth maps!), what was he thinking?

I'm not getting rid of this stuff :-)

You think that's bad? I've got boxes and boxes of old Spectrum, Amstrad, Commodore 64, and Atari ST games in the loft.

I used to have PC games, but I got rid of most of those back when they did had a smidgeon of second-hand value, and only kept my LucasFilm/Arts games, and the first Gabriel Knight.

I've got loads too in the loft.

Also have all my retro consoles including a 3DO. Doubt any of them will really work on a modern TV now though so, since the great plan to open a gaming museum in my mansion have been scuppered by the fact that I don't have a mansion, I may have a clearout and just bin
