Sorry if this has already been discussed or in the incorrect area but I was looking at my library of old games and saw:

Jack Orlando Director's Cut sitting up there, so I re-installed it and checked for a walkthrough and printed that out ....

Is anyone interested in these old games? I can't see that I will play them again but I don't know what to do with them. I don't do eBay.

I'm in Australia. Posting is expensive.







PS I say Hi to Mad.

Mystic Falls, you can list them here and sell them and just say that any postage will be paid by buyer. Get an estimate of what it would cost to ship to US, UK etc so you can give an idea. Many are interested in older games especially if boxed and in good condition.

Oh, I wouldn't want money for them and all are in their original boxes (although I used to remove the cardboard) and they have only been played once,so in almost pristine condition.

Last time I posted a game off to someone it cost me about $20 for Airmail postage to the UK! The game was "free", the postage cost me. I have, perhaps, 200+ games sitting on my study bookcase.

That is my dilemma, I have old original games I need to get rid of as I will never play them again but somebody at Gameboomers might like to have them and sell them if that is their thing.

I shall have to do some research, I guess. Plus make a list of the games I have.

Meanwhile if some Gamer is looking for a particular game, perhaps they could ask whether I have it?

Sorry to be a pest. Thanks for your patience.

Mystic Fall, that is very sweet of you to think of all the boomers.

Am actually looking for Gabriel Knight Sins of The Father.

Can pay with paypal, if you should perhaps have the game.

Unfortunately,that is one game I wish I had never given away after playing it. I still have the other GK games.

No problem. GK1 came out in around 1993, I think ... before most of us had the Internet. It played on the old 386 or whatever it was. Once I played it, I gave it to a friend ..... who knows what they did with it? Pristine copies of GK1 would be on the old "floppy disks" and most computers these days don't even have a disk drive.

Regardless of what gamers think, they will never pay HUGE money for a game .... surely?

Mystic, if you have a lot of the older games in boxes you may be sitting on a goldmine. I would research and see if you have any that are worth a lot of money. And yes, people will pay lots for them!

If anyone has any requests, please post them here. Mystic, I would hate to see someone take advantage of your generosity and take a rare game for free and sell it for a hundred dollars. Keep it honest everyone and post here first so we can give a comment as to what Mystic has. thanks
