Baaahhh...It wasn't that bad Mohtools. You were just asking for a site with old games that are hard to find and the company was no longer supporting and making money off. Sierra-Online/Sierra is no longer around anyways, after Vivendi ruined the company. It's not like Vivendi is smart and releasing a Kings Quest/Space Quest Compilation. You'll probably have to download an old version of DOS to run old PC games anyways.

I have a few old PC 3 1/2" disk games and they don't work on my new PC and I need to figure out how to get them to work.

Emulation has it's positives, as it helps to archive and preserve old games for future generations to play. 5 1/4" and 3 1/2" disks won't last forever. I buy old 5 1/4" disk based games for my Atari XE 8-bit computer off ebay and it's a crap shoot, as sometimes the media is corupted.

Ive heard about sites where you can (legally) download old school games. Is that stuff really legal or are people lying to me?
