Since I arrived, I have been scouring the three branches of Half-Price books (U-District, Redmond, Bellevue and Capitol Hill) for oldies (specifically oldie sims and strategy games). It has been a good haul so far:
All these gems together set me back about $30. Woohoo! In case you are wondering – most of these come on 5.25″ disks, and I don’t have a drive for those. But with some creative googling, you can easily find them online. Also, none of these will natively run under XP or Vista; again no problem – use good old DosBox, which emulates all manner of old hardware (AdLib, Tandy, you name it) and DOS for you.
