That is a delicious list of older games! If the Witcher game is on a disk, it won't work any more. The only way to play it - the best game of the Witcher series in my opinion! - is through a download from GOG. If you own the disk, you can enter the game code though and get the download from them free.

These are some of the games I got from Jen. I've been playing those that are Mac compatible and any with DOS CDs. Right now I'm playing Spycraft: The Great Game, which works fine in Boxer (DOS Box for Macs), and I have several that play well in ScummV.

I found someone who wanted some of the games with floppy discs, so the list is getting a bit smaller.

I feel the same way about old games as I do about books - I just can't throw them away! I did make one exception for a couple of paperbacks I found in a box that my Dave moved out here. They were slave books that depicted the slaves enjoying their sexual and physical abuse. I thoroughly enjoyed dropping them into the trash and promptly covered them with garbage.
