Abandonware DOS title

Abandonware and retro gaming links

Here's a short list of abandonware and retro gaming sites of all kinds: abandonware collections with games to download, sites dedicated to old applications, newsfeeds, forums and blogs dedicated to the retro gaming world.

I took some time to look for sites useful for collectors like myself. Apparently there isn't a single site dedicated to give detailed info about games like different editions, pictures of the box and the box contents, etc. There are a few sites dedicated to specific companies (Sierra, Infocom, etc.) but I couldn't find anything more comprehensive. To find such info, you can head to Mobygames or the Wikipedia.
