About The House of Games -
I made this website to remember all the great games that I used to (and
The main reason being that my original games won't last forever because
floppy disks are very prone to lose data and because certain hardware
is no longer made like 5,25 inch floppy drives. Also manuals and/or maps
that come with the original tend to rip and tear after a while.
Storing all of these things digitally on a central location I am able
to keep them in a central location and also make daily backups on tape.
To make it interesting for other people as well I will add plenty of information
about the games themselves like reviews, system requirements etc.
First remember that most of the games on this site are from my own collection
so that means it will at first contain lots of adventure games however
I will add games from all different genres.

hassle to play properly. If you really want to play more games like these
then I suggest you get a hold of an old PC and use that, they shouldn't
be too hard to come by and won't cost you too much either.
I have an old 286 - 10 Mhz (yes 10 Mhz) PC with 2 floppy drives one for
booting and one for playing the games with. I found this system on the
internet while looking through the ads and I got it for FREE :).
