Old games make us laugh and cry and imagine and create and smile and frown and be inspired and think and scheme and backstab and die and die and die and die and sometimes win.

New games just make us cry.

Default I love abandonia

Why I Love abandonia (with sound effects!):

*silence*

Hear that? That's the sound of a DOS game without a home.

*beep* *boop*

That's the sound of a DOS game being played. It's an impossible sound without your help. They don't have DOSBox, but you do. Use it. Download a game from Abandonia - become a hero.

I've been gaming since I was a wee lass back in 1987. As you grow up, disks get lost, CD get scratched, and your beloved childhood friends fade away with each and every move, lost in the mayhem of cardboard boxes.
But that fate is no longer inescapable, thanks to Abandonia! Thank you for being one of the best sources for classic DOS games on the Internet.

I like abandonia for the daily quiz.

I like retro games because they are what I grew up with gaming with. Oh how I fell in love with SSI, Sierra and Origin.

Plus the competition ends on the 5th, my birthday is on the 6th.

I like abandonia because it exposes me to games I never had the opportunity to experience, either because I couldn't afford all of them at the time, or because I didn't have the time to play them all, or because they wouldn't run on my Amiga.

Abandonia also educates me on the history of computer video games and the people who created them.

I look forward to the daily screenshot quiz, because it provides a lot of entertainment in trying to figure out which game from which it was taken, and making me aware of some games I might not otherwise have considered.
I almost always look up the game in the quiz after I get the solution.

Abandonia has been a fixture of my day, every day.

I love Abandonia because it is a space on the web where I actually can spend hours and hours just exploring the good old games that I have never had a chance to play.
I love Abandonia because I always feel free here.

I love Abandonia and retro gaming because let's face it, current generation gaming just sucks. Abandonia is great for when Im bored or looking for inspiration and just want to try something nice and old. Retro gaming is the best gaming.

Thumbs up

Abandonia is a much loved friend of 12 years, who constantly reintroduces me to even older much loved games and their associated memories. Keeping the flame of retro gaming alive like the passionate 'living museum' curator you are is hugely sociologically important. I raise a glass to Abandonia's next 12.

Abandonia is the retro-gaming website which are belongs to us! Whether you just want to chew bubble-gum or so you wanna be a hero, you will always find a forum user doing the three-headed monkey behind you, while the moderators help. Sadly some older members have quit to search their princess in another castle but have found, there is no cake over there. That's why we realized: Abandonia. Abandonia never changes. I wished, that unless our most beloved admin Kosta gets kidnapped by ninjas, Abandonia would stay a while, stay... forever!

Don't worry your head
These giants aren't dead
Abandonia has kept these games flowin'
