Default This might be of interest to you, gaming-history-nerds

I've built a website that I'm quite proud of, honestly, but feel that is not getting enough exposure.
The site in question is retro-gaming-culture.info.
I know that DOS-related sites are a bit neglected, the reason for that is that I rarely surf sites related to old dos games; more often than not, sega and nintendo consoles - tough most of my childhood I had played mostly on a PC.
So, any suggestion, guys? A lot is going on here in this forum so I guess I will get some feedback, and hopefully, some links! If you feel like, do add them through the button on the right side of my site.

Not necessarily, as I try to cover a broader range of topics - not only reviews and downloads, actually, mostly other kinds of sites.

After submitting the link is sent to me and then I decide whether it ends up on the site or not. A few bots have tried but I don't have a pharmaceutical category for their submissions

Nice, maybe a bit more of graphics wouldn't hurt, just to make it more appealing. Usually those kind of sites have rates, a place for comments, a way to sort links using preferences (last updated, number of games...). Just my 2 cents.

Thank you for listing AB, have you planned to create a picture for affiliates?
We could add it to our main page once ready.

I wanted to do things a bit easier for myself and a bit differently. That's why I have so many different kinds of sites - which due to their differences could be impossible to coherently rate. Right now I'm thinking about where my site is heading, I'm not sure how to expand next. But I will be spicing things up graphically a bit in the future.

Not yeet, I will get back to you once I have those two set up. Thanks a lot for the offer. I will PM you in the nearest future.

Check our main page
It's big but fits into the table very well, except for the white vertical space that ruins the layout, can you remove it from the pic or prepare another version?
Example: the Underdogs one, it's 120px X 60px, not 120px X 120px.

I didn't notice, it is like that cause it was prepared for another site. I've cut off the transparent bars but kept the width - if that's okay. Here is the new url http://retro-gaming-culture.info/baner_12573.png

Thanks a lot again!

Didn't notice this link:
http://www.oldskool.org
Jim Leonard's website

Surprised mobygames isn't there... you think it's so obvious it doesn't need a link?
