TUOL is a ring Mr Creosote is running. He probably removed Abadonia because he could not check the VIP section (which is not available to public) to see if they were all Abadonware...

Really his style.

It's not big of a site tough and I never really had interesting conversations with him on his forum. He's not really open minded.
That is correct, but most of his games are ones he made himself, or that others made... or games that are IN the making :blink:

The actual list of Good Old games is very short over at his place.

A while back, after I discovered I could get most of my old disks running on Windows XP with VDMSound, I found Home of the Underdogs to be a pretty good source for old games to feed my ever-growing addiction to classic games, but now I stick mostly to Abandonia. The site is well designed, the games are of high quality, the reviews are generally helpful and enthusiastic, and there's plenty of good stuff in the forums. And the forums have less of that DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE I CAN GET MONKEY ISLAND????????????? I'VE JUST GOT TO HAVE IT OR I'LL KILL MYSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!! crap going on than most forums. I can't stand those whiners!

Not that I haven't stopped checking out other sites. There are a few in France and Italy (all over Europe actually) that have good collections. But I like to think of Abandonia as my friendly neighborhood games pusher. k:

Abadonia probably get more visitors per day than his site will have in one month... Or perhaps a year. He never aimed for that either, his "vision" of life is kind of strange. He prefer to manage to grab those who really love old games and give them his vision (which could be seen as an "elite" group of people) instead of targeting the "masse" which he, probably, find too easy to do anyways.

Well, it takes a lot of different people to make a whole world... Can't really blame him for that.

You can buy it for very little money. The most you'll probably pay is like $10...
