Wasn't it Pringles not Doritos (?)...And...
04/28/12 03:39 PM


...That change/loss wasn't as "big" to me as Dave's Video Game Classics going down after the Playstation Bios fiasco and then becoming a purely commerical/'cold' site "Vintage Gaming Network". Extra sad for me, because I visited prior to Dave's Viedo Game Classics, when it was just "Dave's C64 Game Page".

Anyhow, after that nose-dive, I made Retrogames my regular place, until Atila no longer gave a rat's ass and just left the place on cruise control.

Of course, we could also bring up the good old front-end Arcade@Home with Tim Eckel (I believe), who turned the freely available ROMs download and once great front-end to a pop-up re-directing nightmare towards the end of that 'reign'.

Yes, the 90's and early 00's were great times indeed for the emulation community. Not being sarcastic either. Despite some (bad) politics at times, it was exciting to see so many new things emulated and discovered for the first time from the 80's and 90's.
