Old Games in Abandonia

Talking about the long tail, I recently have some fun play some old and long discontinued computer games. Abandonia - Home of abandonware DOS games is a site that collects abandoned computer games for free download. Some oldest date back to 1980s. I was never a serious gamers. But like most youth I have spent quite some time on games, first on the Apple II, then on a PC. Some of my favourite are Archon, Karateka, Tetris and Romance of The Three Kingdoms III. The state of art of hardware and graphics are much more advance today than those in the 80s and 90s. But with a bit of little effort you can run the games on your PC and relive the life of your youthhood.

Regarding the legality of offering copyrighted games for download, the site phrase it interestingly.

Since the software is no longer sold or supported, the copyright holders are not directly harmed in any way. This is why abandonware sites are, for the most part, ignored by the law.
